A Snowy Hike In Zermatt


On our last full day in snowy Zermatt, we spent the morning getting in some last minute skiing while the afternoon was devoted exploring Zermatt's plethora of hiking trails. We really didn't do any serious hiking (our legs were already shot from skiing), but we did want to wander up a few of the mountain trails to snap photos and have ourselves a little fun in the snow. D got in a few good hits with some icy snowballs and in return for almost taking my eye out (I swear he really didn't hit me, just a really hilarious optical illusion), he bought us all a round of winter-themed cocktails at a cozy bar in the middle of town. The cocktail pictured above is a Toblerone martini. Tasted JUST like the Toblerone chocolate bars Switzerland is so famous for. The Bailey's hot cocoa was amazing as well, but when is it not? :) If you find yourself wandering Zermatt in need of a warm (or chocolatey) libation, Bar 55 has got you covered. And the decor is ski lodge chic, worth a look and a drink!

If you haven't already figured this out, Zermatt was hands down one of my favorite winter trips we've taken while stationed here in Europe. After seeing it romanticized on The Bachelor a few seasons ago, it absolutely didn't disappoint. From the pine tree-lined streets, twinkle lights, and falling snow, all the way to the bubbly cheese fondue and cozy ski chalets, I'd highly recommend a short (or long) skication in this quaint little winter wonderland. I so wish D and I had time to go back!
