  • We had been surprised by the restreins access to the station we had to pay a fine of 100hp (or 92 euros) with police officers with little understanding and poor indication when the signs. Aside from its very good station. To do once in a lifetime! Ps: Beware of those who get there you have to stop 5km from the station to take a shuttle or face a fine. Because waze (or other gps) will not warn you under any circumstances.

  • It's a transfer station to Glacier Paradise, but a 15-minute walk down the property is a small lake. There are no green grasslands because they have exceeded the forest limit, but we were able to enjoy different Matterhorn.

  • This is a gondola transfer station to Matterhorn Glacier Paradise. There's also a restaurant with a terrace, so be sure to get off the gondola and enjoy the lake and glaciers. It is a wonderful view.

  • I have skied in Italy, France and Austria and I would say irrefutably that Trockener Steg is the best ski site I have been to. I travel to Zermatt annually and the last time I have been there I took my wife with me. This photo was taken from this time - absolutely outstanding view. We really enjoyed skiing the Trockener Steg and I highly recommend it.
  • Uncompromised sublime beauty.
