Schwarzsee/Matterhorn Glacier Paradise open in Zermatt

The Schwarzsee and Matterhorn Glacier Paradise skiing and snowboarding areas are open in Zermatt. Currently there is 75cms of packed groomed snow with more expected over the next week.

Zermatt is hosting the first Freefall Winter Mountain Bike Downhill on 10th December. It is a chinese downhill (everyone starting at once) from the top of the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise down to the village of Zermatt, in total a whopping 2,222 vertical meter decent!
The course will start off technical, narrow and winding then flatten out and widen as the competitors descend. No biker has ever broken a time of 20 minutes in such a long descent, stay tuned to see if it can be done! Results will be published on 10th December.
