View from Findeln in Sunnegga area The Rothorn/Sunnegga area encompasses Sunnegga, Blauherd, Rothorn and Findeln. Sunnegga, as the name suggests, really is a suntrap. From Sunnegga, ski down to Findeln, home to five mountain restaurants, including Gornergrat Railway our favourite in Zermatt, Chez Vrony.

Gornergrat, is served by the Gornergrat railway and offers views of twenty nine peaks of 4000m plus. For easy access try the Kulm Hotel at the top of the mountain or for novelty, the
Igloo Dorf offering both red and white gluhwein.

View of MatterhornLast but no means least the Klein Matterhorn area offers the highest skiing and closest views of the Matterhorn. It can get very cold and windy
at times, but when the sun is shining the snow here will be the best in the resort. For great service and good food, try the Schwarsee Hotel at the top of the Schwarsee bubble.
