You will experience some real moments of magic on the moonlight descent: on arrival at Rothorn, a small aperitif awaits you as a refreshment to prepare yourself for a descent to remember …

Only the moon is watching

It’s 8.10 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.

At the end of the piste, at the CERVO Mountain Resort, warm up with a mulled wine on the terrace before enjoying a traditional Swiss fondue at the restaurant Ferdinand by CERVO. What are you waiting for?

  • 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.
  • Mulled wine on the terrace of the CERVO Mountain Resort*
