You will experience some real moments of magic on the moonlight descent on the Rothorn. But before you set off for the night-time skiing experience there’s a culinary highlight to look forward to: a full-moon menu at Restaurant Rothorn. Prepare yourself for a descent to remember with a traditional Swiss fondue.
Only the moon is watching
It’s 10.30 p.m. You’re in the middle of the Matterhorn ski paradise. In the light of the full moon you glide down the almost deserted pistes. The surrounding peaks, enshrouded in mystery, gleam in the moonlight. The winter forest to the side of the piste takes on an enchanted air. Down in the valley you can see the lights of Zermatt twinkling romantically. The magic of the moment has you under its spell.
Despite the perfectly groomed pistes and the light of the moon you are recommended to bring a headlamp or torch with you. You will be accompanied by members of the Zermatt Piste Patrol and Mountain Rescue service on the descent, because at Zermatt Bergbahnen your safety is our priority.
When does the moonlight descent take place? You can take the opportunity to enjoy the most magical descent of your life on any night between the end of December and the beginning of April when there is a full moon.
