Laughter in the air, crisp winter wind on your face, and the warm glow of après-ski socializing – if you’re unapologetically addicted to the ski lifestyle, this ski-in/ski-out resort will give you another reason to stay hooked. Matterhorn-facing rooms (ie. all accommodation) are housed in chalets, each with a dedicated spa area to unwind with a sauna and steam. It’s bold and contemporary, being fresh without any traces of Alpine kitsch. From its perch above the riffraff – if it can be called that in Zermatt, more like the tinkering of civilized holidaymaking – you can overlook the town. There are worse habits in the world to form, so go on, give it a go.
