Re: Skiing in Zermatt

Good quality ski clothing from the Migros at reasonable prices. A waterproof jacket and waterproof trousers and good gloves. Get some good ski socks too, you will thank me later. December won’t be that cold, but think about thermals. (I never wear them, even in -35 temperatures but it’s a personal thing. You are going to want to dress in layers. But not too many, anything you strip off needs to be carried.

Do a search for ski equipment rental in Zermatt, there are plenty of outlets, prices won’t vary much so find somewhere near to your accommodation. Don’t get the best, get the cheapest. Don’t forget the helmet, you do need one even though they are not mandatory for adults.

There are a couple of ski schools again to a search. Your lift tickets will depend on where your ski school will take you. Do not get the full all singing, all dancing pass. You will NOT be skiing down to Italy this time. If necessary you can always upgrade. Get the advice from your instructors, you can buy them on the day.
