We have had official confirmation that the Zermatt ski lifts will operate as usual until the end of the season on May 2nd. The Sunnegga / Gornergrat area will close on Monday April 19th, while the Matterhorn area will continue to operate until May. This is the best area for spring skiing, due to its high altitude.
All shops, including non-essential ones, are now open normally. Indoor eating in restaurants is still restricted, but all the mountain restaurants are open and you can use their terraces and the surrounding slopes to enjoy your take-away. There is a lot of seating available. It’s very much like the good old days!
