we will be traveling from the US to zermatt via zurich in September 2014 for our son's destination wedding. we will stay in zermatt 7-8 days for the wedding and while there ride all the lifts and gondolas for hiking an sightseeing. our return back to the US will be via zurich.
a few of us will remain in the zermatt area a few more days for more extensive hiking and climbing (and also to have a little weather security in case of rain) and will once again be using the lifts system.
is the swiss card our best option? also, using the swiss card for the train between zurich and zermatt requires using the most direct route. what is considered the most direct route? are there options?
