Join your TCSC friends for another European Adventure! 

This time, we will explore Zermatt in Switzerland. Zermatt is the highest winter sports area in the Alps with ski terrain at altitudes between 5,250' and 12,000'. That is 7,250' of vertical drop. The bold pyramid of the Matterhorn rises directly behind the town and is visible from much of the mountain's 360-kilometer trail system which connects two countries and three resort towns. The other side of the Matterhorn is in Italy, and one the greatest moments in a lifetime is skiing over the Theodul Pass and down into the Italian trail system. The world’s highest cableway opened for the 2019 season after 2.5 years construction work. The Matterhorn Glacier, at 12,739' is where you can ski year-round.
