Winter Escapes: Riffelalp Resort 2222m, Zermatt, Switzerland

December 12, 2006| By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Riffelalp

In the village of Zermatt, close to the Italian border, at one of the premier ski destinations in the world, there is a resort like no other. The luxurious Riffelalp Resort is situated at 2,222 meters above sea level, affording guests an extraordinary and unique alpine panorama. Hit the slopes at the heart of the Gornergrat skiing district; the in-house ski concierge can assist with equipment rental and even set up heli-skiing trips. At the end of the day, soak your tired muscles in Europe's highest outdoor pool (heated to 35 degrees Celsius), taking in superb views of the Matterhorn. Or head to the Wellness Center and explore the various baths-- stone steam, saline, immersion-- and the Finnish Sauna, or indulge in a massage. In the evening, sample Cheese Fondue and Raclette in front of the open fire, or dine in style at the hotel's fine eateries. Evenings are never dull; there is a plethora of entertainment, including two bowling alleys, billiard room, home cinema, wine bar, and cocktail bar.
