Hello kfordco and Welcome to MySwissAlps,
Your plan looks good.
How did you intend to get from Zermatt to Zurich? Have you considered travelling on the Glacier Express to Chur and then on to Zurich?
When you go to Zermatt make sure that between Spiez and Zermatt you go via Kandersteg. You will then travel on the Regio-Express Lötschberger train over the traditional, more than 100 year old mountain route, giving you a wonderful view along the impressive peaks and down into the Rhone Valley.
Use the Swiss Train Timetable (www.myswissalps.com/ti metable) to plan your travel. If you haven’t used it before it will pay to read the instructions on that page before delving into the timetable.
Swiss weather (www.myswissalps.com/we ather) is unpredictable.
If you are very unlucky the weather may possibly prevent a view of the Matterhorn. If you skip Zermatt you definitely won’t see it! 😎
