Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Zermatt ski lockers

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hi All, I'm looking for some collective Snowheads wisdom. The two of us are off to Zermatt on Jan 21st for a week, staying in the Hotel Monte Rosa. Cutting a long story short, neither of us wants to march around the resort in ski boots with our gear and my partner has an aversion to ski buses unless really pushed, so we want to hire a locker nearer the slopes. It looks like the ski lift bases have ski lockers, (or the rental firms do) but I'm struggling to work out which lift base/location it is best to hire a locker at? I appreciate that there are multiple routes up to the slopes but given we are average intermediaries, is it likely that we will favour one ski lift over the others, therefore should hire a locker there? Any insight would be really useful - Thanks in advance

There are lockers in the lift station at Trockener Steg, top of the Klein Matterhorn lift out of Zermatt. No idea if you need to book them or not. There is a (or 2?) rental shop there as well.

I know a few people on various BASI courses used them to leave their shoes in during the day and their skis overnight, but don't be tempted to leave your ski boots there unless you're partial to wearing blocks of ice first thing in the morning.

Hmmm, frozen boots would be a problem - you make a very good point there. Thanks!

Also lockers at the top of the Sunnegga funicular, and the Matterhorn Express lift station in Zermatt. I haven't used them, but I think they now work with your ski-pass, someone else might know.
Unfortunately you've hit on one of the downsides to Zermatt. I can recommend getting Sidas ski boot Traction rubber grips - they've transformed my walking comfort walking round Zermatt, but you do have to stuff them in your bag or whatever when you actually get to the snow.
If you're staying at the Monte Rosa, I'm sure they will have their own taxis to get you wherever in the morning - and I'm sure you could splash out and get (or share) a taxi for the return?
There are 2 valley stations - Matterhorn Express, which serves the Riffelberg / Trockener Steg / Klein Matterhorn / Italy, and Sunnegga, which serves Sunnegga / Rothorn. And the Gornergratbahn, for a scenic ride to Riffelberg and Gornergrat.

@ster, I'd forgotten about those, TBH, but the pictures imply that they've been seriously updated since the last time I was there (when I was staying in literally the first building next to the lift station, so really didn't need to think about lockers Happy ).

There are certainly loads of places to leave skis overnight, both at the three base stations in Zermatt itself and on the top of the lifts for Sunnega & Trockener Steg. You use your ski pass to lock them and then pay at a machine to unlock them again.

I can't recall seeing anything for boots so that Dorsaz sport option looks like a good bet although it means you are committed to starting in the same spot every morning
