Which Zermatt / Cervinia ski pass do I need?
Note that children 0-8 inclusive ski for free, between 9 and 15 (incl) at 50% price, and between 16 and 19 (incl) at a 15% discount. On Saturdays, children under the age of 16 ski for free.
There are two main ski pass options. We have listed them below with costs for a six day adult pass as a guide. For the full price list please click here. New for the 2017-18 season is the points based Easy SkiCard, perfect for the occasional skier.
Also please note that you can add an additional insurance cover for 5 Chf per day to cover non-use of the pass and expenses arising from an accident on the ski slopes (if your own insurance does not apply). Click here for a summary of the cover provided.
There is a refundable deposit of CHF 5 on the ski-pass which is not included in the prices below.
1) International Cervinia CHF 434 - SKI AREA: 360 km
This covers all of Zermatt, Cervinia, and Valtournenche.
Worth taking if you intend to ski on the Italian side for more than 1 day, or if you would like the option of doing the occasional run there when in the Klein Matterhorn area. In our opinion this is the one to go for, since it would be a pity not to sample la dolce vita at least once, and the greater flexibility is worth the additional CHF 8 per day compared to the option below. On some days the weather may be better on the Italian side and this gives you the flexibility to ski wherever the sun is shining the brightest!
2) Zermatt only CHF 380 - SKI AREA: 200 km
This limits you to all of Zermatt. The one to go for if you're sure you don't want to sample Italy. If you do decide to go across to the Italian side, you can get a day supplement for CHF 42, which brings the total cost for the 6 days to CHF 422.
Note that you should invariably get the International ski pass for children. Under the age of 10 the passes are free, but the supplement should you decide to go across is not. And they need passes covering Italy if in Cervinia. For children up to the age of 16, the extra cost of an 6 day international pass is CHF 27, but the supplement for 1 day costs the same as for adults, i.e. CHF 42. So probably worth getting the international ski pass for them.
And for the last category late teens we'll let you do your own maths!

Only pay for what you use – that’s the advantage of the Easy SkiCard. Load up your card with points, and you’re good to go. Points are deducted from your Easy SkiCard account each time you use a lift. The maximum daily charge is 90 points. These are priced at 98 Chf for 100 points, 282 Chf for 300 points, and 450 Chf for 500 points. A good solution for those who just want to do a couple of runs per day.
There is also the option to purchase a peak pass which is available only for walkers and excursion participants but not for wintersports participants. These can only be purchased for a minimum of three days. For individual journeys, you must purchase a single trip ticket at the bottom of the lift.
