This answer isn't quite detailed enough.
Here is what you have to do:
The Berner Oberland Pass is - as a kind of 'special extra' (because south of the Lötschberg Tunnel isn't the Berner Oberland) - valid on the old slow Lötschberg 'mountain route' from Spiez to Brig.
Since the opening of the Lötschberg Base Tunnel (LBT) fast inter-city trains only run via the LBT as it is much quicker. The LBT route comes out near Visp, not near Brig, so the fastest way to Zermatt from the north is now Bern - Spiez - Visp - Zermatt. You can still travel the slow way Bern - Spiez - Frutigen - Kandersteg - Brig - Visp.
So, your BO Pass will get you to Spiez on the LBT route or Brig on the old route, then you either have to buy a ticket:
Spiez - Zermatt via LBT-Visp;
Brig - Visp - Zermatt
