The Matterhorn is renowned around the world as a symbol of Switzerland. Directly at the foot of this striking jagged rock there is a marvelous ski resort – the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise, home to Europe’s longest piste. It runs from the Klein Matterhorn to the village of Zermatt.

There is no other mountain railway in Europe that reaches as high as this one – the highest point in the Zermatt skiing area is 3,820 m.a.s.l. Here, right at the foot of the Matterhorn, is where Europe’s longest descent starts. The descent with its incomparable views starts off fairly comfortably on the level Theodul Glacier before reaching a steep slope affording wonderfully wide carving sections as you head for Trockener Steg and Furgg. From there it continues along a black-marked mogul slope to Furi before ending at the edge of the village of Zermatt.
