peaks, including the Matterhorn, the third highest peak in the Swiss Alps. The
only means of transportation allowed in the resort are electric cars and horse-drawn
sleighs and carriages.
There are 5500 permanent residents in Zermatt, although tourists increase the population greatly all year round. Since 2000, Zermatt has had its own television station, which broadcasts images of the hiking and skiing trails, as well as showing international news, community and tourist information, and movies.
