Zermatt! A mythic village on the foot of the Matterhorn, Monterosa, Castor,...
A freeride myth awaits us another time. Find the best runs, amazing scenery, cosy huts. Like many years before the Sport65 freeride guests will join this mythic resort in April with less people on the slopes, you´ll find the best spring snow conditions in Zermatt. So don´t hestistate- join us, the Matterhorn is calling.
As always we are staying the the cozy hotel Plateau Rosa right at the "Klein Matterhorn" gondola with some of the best views onto the Matterhorn.
If you choose a room with Matterhorn view you can wake up with the view onto one of the most famous mountains in the world.
Holger, one of the owners of Sport65 used to live in Zermatt many years and knows the best places on the mountains - and also for spending the time after skiing in nightlife...

More than a freeride dream with its extremly long runs on Gornergrat or over the glaciers of Klein Matterhorn.

Feel free to ask for any date. We´ll make it possible.
If you fly in to join on our camps we gladly arrange pick ups from Zurich or Geneva airport.

    Hikes are not seen as a "Skitour" in the end they are only means to an end to reach nice runs and get away from the hustle in the ski resort.
  • If needed we will do some rappelling as well to reach couloirs and untouched faces.
  • More over the mountaing guides teach you how to read a mountain and raise the awareness of alpine hazards and how to handle them.
  • You will be challenged in a positive way to experience new grounds and ski where only few others are skiing!

 Skiresorts

Zermatt, das Freeride Eldorado...

Sorry, we did not translate the skiresorts facts in English.
But you may rest assured that this resort is a fabulous freeride spot!

Feel free to contact us for further information or visit the website of the resort...

WOW! Ein Freeridegebiet der Klasse "XXL" - Für uns das Top-Gebiet weltweit...

Holgers alte Heimat: Zermatt! Das "Matterhorn Glacier Paradise" - das wohl schönste Skigebiet der Welt und wie wir es hier nennen, ein " Freeride Eldorado", das seinesgleichen sucht!

Zermatt - dieser Name lässt den meisten Wintersportlern das Wasser im Munde zusammenlaufen.
Fast schon mystisch überragt das Matterhorn, der "Berg der Berge", den Nobelskiort in den Walliser Alpen.
Monte Rosa, Castor, Pollux, Mischabell, Dom, Lyskamm, Breithorn - welcher Bergliebhaber wird angesichts dieser "Riesen" um Zermatt herum nicht schwach?
Die unzähligen Abseitsmöglichkeiten in den drei Zermatter Skigebieten Sunnegga/Rothorn, Gornergrat und Klein Matterhorn bieten Freeride-Einsteigern und natürlich auch Freaks alles, was man sich nur vorstellen kann! 
Zusammen mit dem italienischen Breuil/Cervinia bildet Zermatt ein Skigebiet der Superlative rund um das Matterhorn, das weltweit unerreicht ist.
Zusätzlich ist es auch das höchste Skigebiet der Alpen (bis über 3800m) mit vielen Nordhängen, die auch weit im Frühjahr noch schöne Powdertage zulassen oder zu traumhaften Firn-Runs einladen.
Zugegeben: Es ist nicht gerade billig hier, aber dafür sind die Anlagen top und Warteschlangen? Fehlanzeige!
Die Gondeln und Bahnen hier suchen ihresgleichen auf der Welt - dort wo Österreich aufhört, fängt hier alles erst an.
Und gerade im Gelände ist hier viel weniger los als an anderen "Hotspots" der Freerideszene - Sunnega/Rothorn, Klein Matterhorn und Gornergrat und Hohtälli bieten durch ihre Anlagen einen Luxus, den man durchaus mit Heliskiing vergleichen kann, denn die Bahnen katapultieren Wintersportler super schnell nach oben und die Runs sind oft bis zu 1000 Höhenmeter.
Hier kommt man auch ohne Felle und Tourenausrüstung an tolle und spektakuläre Abfahrten, oftmals direkt vom Lift aus.
Unsere Sport65 Gäste sind jedes Mal aufs Neue fasziniert von Zermatt, dem Matterhorn, den Skigebieten und der grandiosen Walliser Bergwelt.
Zermatt - Ein Bergmythos und absolutes Muss für jeden Ski- und Snowboardfahrer!
NEU seit 2019: Die neue "3S" Gondel auf das Kleine Matterhorn - die höchste Seilbahn der Alpen und schon alleine wegen der Bahnfahrt den Besuch wert!

Daten / Fakten / Wissenswertes rund um das Skigebiet...

  • Gesamt Pistenkilometer: ca. 310 km (inkl. Cervinia und Valtournenche)
  • Anzahl der Aufstiegsanlagen / Lifte: 35 (Zermatt), 25 (Cervinia/Valtournenche)
  • Schneesicherheit: Besonders schneesicher bis weit ins Frühjahr durch die extreme Höhe über 3800m und Gletscher (Sommerski!). Hier findet man noch Pulverschnee, wenn in anderen Gebieten längst die Krokusse blühen und spät in der Saison tolle Firnhänge!

Unsere Tipps für Freerider / Variantenfahrer...
Zermatt zu beschreiben ist eigentlich in Worten kaum möglich.
In Zermatt findet ihr alles, was das Freeriderherz begehrt!
Vor allem eines: Viel Platz!
Denn anders als in den anderen großen "Freeride-Spots" wie Verbier, Chamonix oder dem Arlberg hält sich hier die Schar der "Skibums" in Grenzen und die Anzahl der Einheimischen, die morgens als erste den frischen Powder zerpflügen ist einfach auch kleiner.
Auch Tage nach einem großen Schneefall findet man noch "First Lines" - und auch wenn schon Spuren im Gelände sind, hier ist alles weitläufiger, größer und man kann noch unberührte Flecken für die eigene Linie finden.
Natürlich sollte man sich entsprechend auskennen, denn Zermatt bedeutet vor allem eines: Ski und Board in hochalpinem Gelände, mit dessen Gefahren!
Unsere Guides und Holger kennen das Gebiet perfekt und garantieren maximalen Spaß, wenn ihr mit ihnen unterwegs seid.
Hier einige Tourentipps:
Zum Stockhorn per Gondel (via Rote Nase) und dann runter über die Gletscher bis zur Gant-Gondel ist sicherlich ein ultimatives Highlight.
Genial sind auch Variantenabfahrten Hohtälli/Mittelritz (über 1000 Höhenmeter Tiefschnee!), die in den Grünseecouloirs enden (wenn man die Einfahrt findet!), die Schwarzsee Waldschneisen (Holgers Geheimwege!), Rothorn-Face, der Garten-Hang,...
Ein weitere Highlight, wenn man einen erfahrenen Bergführer dabei hat ist die Abfahrt über das Schwarztor auf den Grenzgletscher. Mitten durch die grandiose Welt des ewigen Eises. Alpinausrüstung (Gurt, LVS, Seil,...) sind hier natürlich Pflicht!
Auch super: Bei Firn über den Furggen-Gletscher am Matterhorn bis direkt unter die impossante Ostwand. Aber Achtung - dort hat es auch Spalten, also nicht alleine da hin fahren und entsprechende Ausrüstung dabei haben!
Außerdem extrem viele Helikopter Möglichkeiten Richtung Monterosa, Silbersattel!
Touren und Variantenmöglichkeiten finden sich in und um Zermatt ohne Ende - nicht umsonst startet hier die weltberühmte "Patrouille du glacier", das härteste Skitourenrennen der Welt!
Diese Liste ließe sich ohne Ende fortsetzen...

Sollte mal einen Tag Piste angesagt sein...
Am Klein Matterhorn und am Gornergrat finden Carver traumhafte Verhältnisse auf extra breiten Pisten.
Für sportliche Fahrer: Vom Klein Matterhorn nach Zermatt oder nach Valtournenche sind es ca. 17 km, nach Cervinia über die "Ventina" ca. 11 km Piste, die zum extremen Carven einlädt. Probiert es mal in einem Stück durchzufahren - die Oberschenkel werden brennen!
Die anspruchsvollste Piste im Gebiet: Die National am Sunnegga - richtig steil und meist sehr hart, so dass man die Kanten zum glühen bringt!
Oder die "weiße Perle" vom Hörnlilift nach Furri, direkt am Fuße des Matterhorns vorbei.

Holgers Zermatt-Insider-Tipps...
Die besten Hütten mit Wahnsinns Matterhornblick liegen in Findeln (Sunnegga/Rothorn).
Auch sensationell gelegen: Die Fluhalp am Fuß des Gornergletschers mit ihren vielen kleinen Separé Zimmern (Achtung - Plätze reservieren!). Oder die Gandegg Hütte (Kl. Matterhorn) mit einem tollen Blick auf das Breithorn.
Unser Tipp schlechthin: Das Restaurant Furri (super Essen, besonders Walliser Käseschnitte mit Ei!).
Wichtig wenn ihr ohne uns dort seid - immer einen Gruß von Holger/Sport65 sagen!
Auch klasse: Rüber nach Cervinia, dort gibts einige sehr schöne Rifugios mit hervorragendem Essen und gutem Espresso (siehe Skigebietsbeschreibung Cervinia)
Après: An der Bar des Hotel Cervo, sicherlich einer der stylishsten Plätze der ganzen Alpen kann man den tag perfekt ausklingen lassern. Etwas heftiger: der Hennustall (liegt genau an der Talabfahrt Kl.Matterhorn, ist momentan der angesagteste Treffpunkt!),...
Oder auch genial: Das Snowboat, dort kann man ganz chillig auf dem Oberdeck mit Matterhornblick ein Aprèsbier trinken...
Nightlife: Wird in Zermatt ganz groß geschrieben und zwar ohne "Anton aus Tirol"...
Als Start: Die Northwall Bar oder vor dem Paperlapub ein schnelles Bier. Dann: Das Hotel Post (Pub, 2 Discos, Bar, Livemusik - best Place in town), Vernissage, ... und viele mehr.

Breuil-Cervinia / Valtournenche, Freeride the italian way...

Sorry, we did not translate the skiresorts facts in English.
But you may rest assured that this resort is a fabulous freeride spot!

Feel free to contact us for further information or visit the website of the resort...

Skiing the italian way... ein Traumgebiet mit unglaublichen Freeridemöglichkeiten und: Wenigen Freeridern...

Das riesige und super schneesichere Skigebiet an der Südflanke des Matterhorns.
Dort wo sich Powder und Firn treffen, das ist Skifahren rund ums Matterhorn!
Kaum hat man von Zermatt aus die Grenze am Plateau Rosa überschritten, schon macht sich italienisches Flair breit.
Die ultralangen Abfahrten bis hinunter nach Cervinia und Valtournenche bieten alles, was das Freeriderherz begehrt.
Im Hochwinter "Südalpen-Powder, im Frühjahr Genua-Tief-Dump und danach: Firnhänge zum Zungen schnalzen...
Und wenn der kleine Hunger kommt: Es gibt nette kleine Hütten mit super lecker Pasta und günstigem Espresso.
Auf der Südseite des Monte Cervino (Matterhorn auf ital.) finden sich breite Variantenhänge, riesige Couloirs und wunderschöne Firnabfahrten (besondere Tipps: Richtung Valtournenche). Hier ist auch generell im Gelände wenig los, d.h.: Viel Platz, no Stress!
Von Valtournenche Richtung Zermatt sind übrigens die alten Schlepper durch neue Sessel ersetzt worden und bieten jetzt totalen Komfort auf neuen Anlagen!
Hier gilt nur ein Motto: Fahren ohne Ende - entweder auf der Matterhorn Nordseite oder eben drüben, auf der italienischen Südseite, so wie Wetter und Schnee es am besten zulassen!
NEU ab 2020: Die Gondel von Cervinia aus direkt aufs Kleine Matterhorn - so ist man noch schneller ganz oben!

  • Gesamt Pistenkilometer: ca. 146 km (Cervinia/Valtournenche), 200 km (Zermatt)
  • Anzahl der Aufstiegsanlagen / Lifte: 25 (Cervinia/Valtournenche), 35 (Zermatt)
  • Schneesicherheit: Laut ADAC Atlas besonders schneesicher durch die extreme Höhe und Gletscher bis über 3800m.
    Besonders im Frühjahr super wegen der Genuatiefs und Südlage = tolle Firnhänge!

Unsere Tipps für Freerider / Variantenfahrer...
Hinein ins Amphitheater des Cervino! Es gibt wohl weltweit nichts besseres als die riesigen Hänge in der Aosta-Monte Rosa-Matterhorn Region!
Oben vom Klein Matterhorn aus üben den Gletscher entlang der Ventina fahren oder direkt in Richtung Castor und Pollux abbiegen. Eine Breithorn Besteigung oder die tollen Firnhänge Richtung Valtournenche. Oder wenn mans einfach haben will: Die Hänge unterhalb der Cime Bianche (von dort aus kann man auch nach Champoluc/ St. Jacques abfahren, muss aber entweder per Bus oder mit Fellen wieder aufsteigen!)
Hier geht einfach alles!
Vor allem eignet sich die Südseite des Skigebiets Zermatt/Cervinia für tolle Frühjahrs-Firnerlebnisse, denn die Hänge liegen alle in der Sonne, so ausgerichtet dass der Firn nach und nach kommt. da könnt ihr unseren Guides vertrauen, denn die kennen sich da aus.
Über Gletscher vorbei an riesigen Seracs fahren, die schönsten Powderhänge finden, im Frühjahr perfekte Firnverhältnisse ausnutzen, kleine Touren oder Helikopter fliegen- was wollt ihr mehr?
Ein weiteres Highlight ist sicherlich die Monterosa Umrundung (auch die "Spaghetti Runde" genannt) per Tourenski (auf der Strecke der "Trofeo Mezzalama", dem italienischen Pendant zur "Patrouille du glacier").

Heliskiing: Hier auch ein Highlight!
Von Cervinia oder dem Plateau Rosa aus haben wir die Möglichkeit mit dem Helikopter mitten in die höchsten Berge der Alpen zu fliegen!Das Ganze hier relativ preisgünstig (im Preis-Leistungsvergleich wohl die günstigste Heli-Destination weltweit!), denn wir können mit einem Flug am Tag einen ganzen Tag im Gelände "erobern".
Hinauf zum Col di Verra und via Schwarztor nach Zermatt oder zum Tête de Valpelline und direkt an der Matterhorn Nordwand vorbei - hier ist sehr viel möglich! Die Landepunkte liegen fast alle jenseits der 4000m Marke und eröffnen meist Nordhänge mit bis zu 2500 Höhenmetern Abfahrt.
Kurzum: Sensationell!

Sport65iger Tipps...
Es gibt im ganzen Gebiet extrem viele kleine Hütten. Holgers Lieblingshütte ist das einfache, aber sehr gute "Refugio Bontadini" - hier wird im Selfservice Restaurant frisch und typisch gekocht.
Oder ganz hervorragend: Das Châlet d´Etoile in Cervinia!
Oder Talabfahrt links nach Breuil: Hütte "Iglo" bestellt eine kalte Platte und einen schönen Grüß vom Jürgen dann gibt es noch einen Grappa.
Ganz klasse: Vor dem Runterfahren nach Valtournenche an der Hütte "Roisette" noch einen Radler nehmen... Auch prima: Die Kneipe in der Talstation von Valtournenche, dort gibt es erstklassigen Wein! Achtung: Absturzgefahr!!
Ach ja - Versucht mal das Aosta-Nationalgetränk "Grolla" (brennender Kaffee mit Ginepi aus einer speziellen Holztasse).

Rental equipment:

Attention: Proper adjustment of the bindings is only possible in our Sport65 shop. On the road we can only adjust the bindings manually.

The use of rental equipment takes place at the user's own risk. Sport65 cannot be held responsible for binding adjustment without automatic testing. The renter can get his bindings adjusted in a sport shop on-site at own cost.
Sport65 equipment is not automatically insured against breakage or theft.
For the booked rental equipment our rental terms are applicable: For cancellation of rental equipment a handling fee of 10.- Euro will be retained.
