    My mom and I were the only two people who had the “skip the line” ticket. You’ve the priority entrance to board the train and make sure to sit on the “right” side of the train for the gorgeous view of Matterhorn and Zermatt village. We didn’t know and sat on the wrong side! When coming down, you can sit on the same side if you want the same view. There is not much to see on the left side of the train. Also, you have free access to photo point. It took a while for people to figure out how to redeem the photo online. Make sure you choose the “4 part” and enter your ticket number to redeem it. It’s fun and beautiful. There will be a number of skiers with you on this train.

    Amazing ride up to the alps - you go at your own pace and there are many activities to do at the top with nice trails - then on the way down - get off at the next stop from the top Riffelberg and you can have a nice outdoor self serve lunch overlooking the matterhorn - afterward - hike down to Riffelalp - you will pass amazing glacier lakes and views - everyone was doing it and its easy downhill walk - then get back on the train and either go all the way down or get off at findelbach and hike the rest of the way down - the train is a great experience to do even if you dont do the hiking
