Ok so here is the low down. Don't come to Switzerland cause you will never want to leave. And they will make you leave. The Alps are amazing to look at and ride and so are the women. Almost everything is better here. Food, water, wine, public transport, stable political system, higher salaries and just a better standard of living with 4-8 weeks paid vacation. As an American you are going to get raped with the USD/CHF rate. A beer at the bar will cost you about 10 bucks. On the flip side of the coin I always feel like a king when I go back home as everything is dirt cheap for me.
There are much better resorts than Zermatt. More lifts=more people. Less lifts=less people and the terrain is equally as rad. If your looking for the party and snowboard scene then go to Laax. If your looking for the high society snobbery then Zermatt will not disappoint.

Haha alright man, is there a specific time of the year that you would suggest going? I mentioned late fed/early March because i hear it is the snowiest, but if I was mis-informed, please let me know!

You should be good at that time but you never know. Two years ago I was already on my downhill bike middle February due to lack of snow. Last year was amazing.
