The idea would be to go skiing for a weekend in Zermatt. Zermatt is one of the most well-known resorts with enough slopes for beginners, intermediate and advanced skiers. Skiing with a view on the Matterhorn and enjoying one or more slopes running into Italy is a joy for every skier.
Given that Zermatt is highly sought after and it is difficult to find accommodation for larger groups, I have opted again to go back to the youth hostel where we stayed last year. I have taken an option for 20 spots which I need to confirm by October 7.
The prices at the hostel are:
* double room with sanitary unit : 89 francs
* 4 bed room with washbasin (showers are on the corridor): 60 francs
Prices are by person by night and include accommodation, breakfast, dinner and visitor tax.
The above prices apply if 20 or more people sign up and relate to members of youth hostel. If you are not a member, please add 3 francs per night.
Please note that I have been given an option till October 7. For those interested may I ask you to transfer the respective amount of money by October 6 on my bank account (please do not transfer money to me on October 6 in the evening since highly likely I will not receive it before October 8, which is too late). As you will understand, with every contract their are rights and obligations and hence I am not signing any contracts and become liable for 20 spots if there is no interest from the group.
If there is more interest, obviously I can ask for more spots which at this point in time is still possible. So in order to confirm our booking and reserve our group space, I kindly ask you to transfer money before October 6.
The idea is to take a train on Friday evening (5pm or 5.30 pm) and take the train back on sunday late afternoon (4.30 pm).
Looking forward to great skiing,
