Zermatt March

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi, We are heading to Zermatt in March, Can anyone recommend a guide for off piste. We are traveling in a small but mixed bag of skiers there will probably be 4 -6 skiers that want to do this. Any other tips or recommendations will be appreciated!
Thank You,

In addition to the guide's office in Zermatt, you can contact the Cervinia Guide's office. They are equally competent, a bit less expensive, and they approach things from the Italian perspective rather than the Swiss. Web site is www.guidedelcervino.com. I'll be in Zermatt in mid-March.

I don't have any names for you, but hiring a guide makes a lot of sense. I've skied several times at Zermatt, sometimes with locals sometimes without. Without, I always felt like I was missing out on something. It's not really the kind of place where you're going to be busting off the backside by yourself if you don't really know what you're doing. Guides are frickin' expensive in Switzerland, though.

Thanks to all for the links and info! Hadn't seen responses for awhile and almost gave up!

We are also planning on being in Zermatt for a few days in mid March and are interested in an off-piste guide for a day (I am invited to be a visiting lecturer at a symposium at the Univ. of Basel, so will only have a few days to ski). I have a few additional questions:
- are similar off-piste experiences available in St Moritz or Arosa, and how do you contrast the skiing and mountain experience at those resorts with Zermatt? I am asking because kosher food, which we require, is more readily available in those 2 towns- each has a kosher hotel- compared with Zermatt (the alternative is to travel with our own food from Zurich and perhaps rent an apartment instead of taking a hotel).
- we will bring our own boots, but are thinking of renting skis to avoid having to deal with them for the rest of the trip. Can you suggest anyplace to get higher end skis? I would prefer to ski the same skis that I have now (Atomic Snoops). Should these or something of similar dimensions be difficult to find? Can one guarantee rentals in advance?

Thanks- this will be my first trip to Europe and I am really looking forward to it!
