Weekend Getaway in Heber Valley


Escape to Heber Valley for your next weekend getaway, and enjoy the Zermatt Resort. It's just a short drive away from the Salt Lake Valley in Midway, but the resort's Swiss style will make you feel like you've been transported to another continent altogether. --- With suites, villas, town homes, guest rooms and a wide variety of package deals, there are options for everyone, and plenty to do both at the resort itself and nearby.

Zermatt has a huge range of activities available to guests at the resort. Along with a European carousel, geothermal hot springs next door at the Homestead, and a golf course, you can also take an in-pool yoga class, visit the spa, go for a swim, or play tennis, shuffleboard or volleyball. The resort is also close to opportunities for skiing, snowmobiling, sleigh rides and all kinds of outdoor fun. Hungry after all that running around? On-site, resort guests can have a steak at Z Chop Haus, grab a pint at Matty's Pub or savor a European pastry and coffee at Backeri and Eis Café.

The Travel Tramps regularly write about their treks near and far in City Weekly and host the weekly Travel Brigade Radio Show.
