Zermatt in May- what can we expect in terms of "off season"

Jump to last reply

My BF and I will be in northern Italy in mid May and we wanted to spend a couple nights in Zermatt. We wanted to ski a little (I know it is very limited), explore the town, any hiking/gondola rides, etc. I know this is the off season and I've been reading that many restaurants shops and hotels will be closed (one source said more than half). We already did hotel research and we'd stay at Unique Hotel Post, so that's sorted. But how dead is dead? Would we just not get the feel for Zermatt at all? Will the streets be totally quiet? Favorite bars shut down? I wanted to see the igloo bar but I think that will be shut. Should we just wait until we can get there during a better time? Any thoughts or experiences are appreciated. Thanks!
