Six Day Zermate/Cervinia Lift Ticket Passes 400 Francs, But Prices Down For Non-Swiss (23-Apr-09)

Cervinia, Italy, April 23, 2009 - A six-day pass covering the 400km 'International'

A six-day ski pass covering the 400km ‘International’ ski area shared by Cervinia in Italy and Switzerland in Europe will cost 405 Swiss Francs next winter for adults, up from 394 Swiss Francs this season. 

However at the current time the strengthening pound, after its low point in the winter, means that for citizens of the UK and the Eurozone, the ticket will cost less, rather than more, than in 2008-9, if the current exchange rate trend continues.

In January the 394 Swiss Franc ticket, the most expensive in Europe at the time for a linked ski area, cost about 285 Euros or 255 pounds. Currently the 405 Swiss Franc ticket would cost 255 Euros or 235 pounds. The saving is about 11% for Euro-zone residents and 8% for Brits.

Zermatt also has Europe’s most generous family ticket discounts with children born in or after 2000 skiing free, children born between 1993 and 1999 paying half price and even young adults born between 1989 and 1992 receiving a discount on the full adult rate. This differs from other European resorts where children may pay 70-80% of the full adult price from age four or five and the full rate from age 11 or 12.

The International ticket covers the 350km (219 miles) of piste in the Matterhorn Ski Paradise. A cheaper Zermatt-only ticket is available covering about 185km (165 miles) of piste, or a more expensive pass taking in more Aosta Valley skiing in Italy is another option.
