The Summer Weekender in Zermatt is coming back for its fourth consecutive year this summer.

From the 15th to the 18th of July, the Swiss ski area will host the annual event created to give people that work in the Snowsports industry a snow fix in between seasons. The weekend is an opportunity to network, party and race on the glacier.

The weekender includes two races on the glacier, the Ski Club of Great Britain Giant Slalom and the Metrosnow.co.uk Team Dual Slalom. There will also be the chance to take part in the Matterhorn Mystery Challenge, details of which will remain secret until arrival, but will no doubt involve some super sleuth skills.

Plus there’s plenty of time to take part in the Team Tournament and enjoy the other delights that Zermatt has to offer, such as mountain biking, hiking, paragliding, tennis, golf, high ropes course, cheese tasting, as well as the local nightlife including some late club venues.

The event lasts four days and the package costs £149 (€170) and includes bed and breakfast accommodation at Hotel Rhodania, a two day lift pass, entry in to the two races, a welcome night dinner courtesy of Nelly’s, entry into the Matterhorn Mystery Challenge Entry and into the Team Tournament, Giant Slalom training from Impulse Racing and prize giving and a fancy dress night at Nelly’s.

“After three hugely successful years in Tignes, we’re having a change of scene this summer and moving the Weekender to Switzerland and the highly desirable resort of Zermatt,” said Emma Morris, Marketing Manager of Natives.co.uk and GONEboarding.
