how to obtain discounted zermatt ski passes

Not too many years ago it was possible to receive a 5 or 10% discount on zermatt ski passes if acquired prior to arrival in zermatt. Can anyone tell me please if this still exists and how to obtain these discounted passes?

Thank you!

They may exist but I don't think it is worth it. Why buy a pass good the day after you arrive only to find a blinding storm has postponed your first day of skiing? I am not sure it is worth the 5% discount.

But he can't go if the lifts are closed and I was in Zermatt recently on a day when almost nothing was open for skiing because of bad weather!

Meaning what? You don't need a lift pass to walk or hike and the lifts were not running so a lift pass was useless.

kileysmom, as a teenager in Val D'Isere, the lift passes were only checked for the firs lifts out of the village. Above there, you could ride any lift without a pass. So the Scots in our group would get up early and hike the first stage.

I meant if the lifts were closed and you really wanted to ski ,you could walk up and ski down.

Wore me out just doing it some years ago when I was taking my grandson up and down the bunny hill - it was his first time on skis and I was on foot.
