We meant to say that the Swiss Transfer Ticket plus a local ski pass are a good combination for winter sports holidays. It is not a combined product. Sorry if that was not clear. I have modified that section of the Swiss Transfer Ticket page.
A Swiss Transfer Ticket is cheaper than a round trip ticket Geneva Airport - Zermatt and also cheaper than a round trip ticket Zurich Airport - Zermatt. Prices of the Swiss Transfer Ticket are listed here.
Ski passes can be obtained locally. Details can be found on zermatt.ch. Note that you only need a ski pass if you are actually going to ski. If you only want to use the major lifts and trains to the viewing points (Gornergrat, Sunnegga, Klein Matterhorn, Schwarzsee), you'd better look into the Swiss Card: it is exactly like the Swiss Transfer Ticket but also includes a 50% discount on the lifts.
Hopefully this answers all your questions. Have a great time in Zermatt! If you have time it would be great if you could post a trip report about your experiences. You can win a hotel gift card by doing so.
