See you there this Winter... as promise I am back on the Zermatt slopes tp begin my skiing season in that fantastic alpine panorama...

The Matterhorn or Cervin is always majestic and will give an impresive relaxing athmosphere for my first sunny skiing day...

This season 2005/06 a new lift iopens in Rothorn paradise sking area: the Sunnegga - Blauherd Combi cableway. You will have the choice between 8-seat cable cars or 6-seat chair lifts.

With the ability to carry 2,220 persons per hour the capacity of the new Sunnegga paradise - Blauherd Combi cableway was tripled by comparison with the old 4-seater gondola. The Combi cableway equipped with 27 8-seater gondolas and 27 6-seater chair lifts now provides a convenient form of transport both with or without skis.

Up to the Rothorn (3100 meters) in 5 minutes with the cable car. In the background the peak of Zinalrothorn at 4221 m asl.

The snow cap is still on the Breithorn (4164 m). The architect Heinz Julen has a futuritic project for the Klein Matterhorn: the highest hotel in the world.

The Stokhorn cable car linked Hohtälli and Gornergrat. No pylon between the two cable car station...

Monte Rosa and the highest Swiss peak DufourSpitze at 4634 meters.

Sun at Klein Matterhorn and icy wind... Time for a gluhwein!
