The pleasure-packed Gifthittli to Furi piste consists of sun-spoilt carving slopes with fantastic views of the Matterhorn and plenty of mountain restaurants to top it!
The high alpine, international ski resort of Zermatt bids beautifully scenic pistes around the Matterhorn. And the pleasure-packed piste from Gifthittli to the Gornergrat region as far as Furi is without doubt one of the best. Broad and sunny carving slopes up to Riffelberg, followed by a section with plenty of bends alongside the Gornergrat railway to the Riffelalp. And last but not least, the home run takes active snow fans past numerous inviting mountain restaurants amidst an enchanting woodland setting as they make their way to Furi.
