I'll be traveling to Zermatt from March 10 - 14.
I'm looking for cheap lodging and am wondering what to budget for this stay. I plan on doing about 3 -4 days of skiing/snowboarding while im there. I've never done either so I'll def need to take lessons.
Break the piggybank, max out the credit card and borrow, beg and steal any money that you can find. It is going to be super-expensive. Making a rough guess I would say 50 EUR per day for accomodation, 85 EUR total for the skipass, and around 250+ EUR for the lessons.
You can search for cheap accomodation by looking at http://www.zermatt.ch - look at private rooms.
If you want or need lessons you can get them cheaper in the Czech Republic, Italy or Austria.
