Experience Zermatt, Switzerland - Utah Style
Looking for a brief getaway for late summer when you've been unable to travel to European destinations such as Italy, France or perhaps Switzerland – look no further than this mountain resort in Zermatt, Utah. The Zermott Resort (Wyndham Hotel property), located in Northwestern Wasatch County in Midway, UT, was named after the village at the base of the Matterhorn in Switzerland. It features Swiss-style architecture and décor. If you've ever been to Switzerland you'll remember such breathtaking sites – well this resort seeks to draw a parallel between the spectacular sites of Switzerland and the open valleys of Midway, UT. The resort lies at the base of the 13,000' Wasatch Mountain Range.
During ski season they offer free shuttle service to and from Park City ski areas and about 15 minutes from the Mayflower lift in Deer Valley. It's a short drive from the Salt Lake City Airport.
The Guided Tours program includes all of the following:
* Scenic Train Ride
* Crater Tour
* Wasatch State Park Hike
* Wasatch Museum

One of the unique activities within walking distance of the resort is “The Crater”. This one-of-a-kind geothermal spring is hidden within a 55′ tall beehive-shaped limestone rock with waters over 65′ deep. The hole at the top of the dome lets in sunlight and fresh air while the interior stays heated by the mineral water, at a constant range of about 95 degrees for a completely unique and therapeutic soak and swim.
The Crater offers swimming, scuba diving and snorkeling, but you do not have to get wet to have a one-of-a-kind experience. A lot of people just enjoy the self-guided tour, which covers the history, geology, and archaeology of this remarkable natural phenomenon. You needn’t rappel through the top of the dome to enjoy all the fun either. A tunnel was bored through the rock wall at ground level, lending easy access to custom-built decks and a soaking area where guests can enjoy the crystal-clear blue mineral water and the warmth of the crater — in or out of the water.
