Zermatt is probably the all-around best winter resort in Europe, offering absolutely everything one looks for -- superior snow conditions, old-world atmosphere, and a gorgeous alpine setting. Set at the foot of the towering, jagged Matterhorn, Zermatt offers many challenging downhill runs and a variety of excellent cross-country paths. On one route, you can actually ski across the border into Italy, and in this world of glaciers and 14,000-foot peaks, it is usually possible to ski through the summer. Summer visitors will also find miles of scenic hiking trails, and mountain railway and cable car trips are available year-round. Zermatt mixes the amenities and aprés-ski diversions of a cosmopolitan resort with the atmosphere of a traditional mountain village, where cars are not permitted (you leave your car below, and take the train to the center of town). In town, transportation is by electric "snowmobiles" or horse-drawn carriages.
Residence Winkler offers comfortable, modern apartments in three separate buildings, which share a restaurant, sauna, fitness room and lounge. Furnished and equipped to a high standard, each apartment offers a balcony or terrace with deck chairs, and on clear days many enjoy magnificent views of the Matterhorn. Located in the Winkelmatten district, the Residence is 5-10 minutes above the center of town, a gradual descent by foot or on skis. It is close to one of the cross-country ski trails and to the Kleine Matterhorn cable car station that will take you to the Schwarzsee, Trockener Steg and Kleine Matterhorn ski areas.
