Magical moments

After an aperitif under the starry sky, the enchanted descent begins at 8.10 p.m. - accompanied by the piste and rescue service, you can experience the freshly prepared pistes from Rothorn to Zermatt. Down in the valley you can see the lights of Zermatt twinkling in the night, where there is a variety of ways to round off your evening individually after the descent.

  • Single trip from Zermatt to Rothorn
  • Aperitif on the Rothorn
  • Ski descent accompanied by members of the Zermatt Piste Patrol and Mountain Rescue service at 8.10 p.m.

If you are looking for an offer where dinner is included after the ski descent, we recommend our moonlight descents.
