I would just like to ask a few questions and if ye could give advice & suggestions it would be appreciated! The Honeymoon would be during Christmas week.
Right firstly we are Novice skiers, we have just had our first lesson in Ski Dubai (not a real mountain slope I know) but it was a start so I can see us going back for a few lessons there throughout the year (living in middle east). I have seen mixed reports on beginners skiing in Zermatt but our Holiday would not be skiing focused maybe only 2 days skiing max. We would be more interested in the winter scene and nice food and drinks by a log fire etc.
Can you get daily ski/ lift pass? A week pass would be wasted.
Lessons and ski gear seem to be easy to get?
If someone could give us a rough Idea of costs.
Also is getting from Geneva Airport and train to Zermatt straight forward experience? We would probably stay in Geneva the night before our departure flight.
It also seems like we have left it a little late and a lot of hotels are already booked or have minimum 10 night stay. 3000CH seems to be the average rate for that week as its Christmas.
No point asking more specific questions at this point until we find more information about available hotels. All suggestions welcomed!
