... and is car free , so you have to drive as far as Tasch , then board a train up to Zermatt. It was 150 years ago that the first mountaineer conquered the Matterhorn, so the place is buzzing. We were VERY LUCKY , in that the weather was clear and we could see the mountain as often it is clouded in. After ogling at our view of the big M from our hotel balcony , we made plans for our "ascent", first thing in the morning. You take a cog train up ...

At Saas Fee we made our usual dash to the gondola, which was already open today, and we set off up the mountain. The next gondola was also open so we went up in that to the underground train so we could start the day at the top of the mountain. On the way up we had entered the clouds so we did not know ...

... three of them before the conditions began to make JJ quite weary. The groomed runs had been cut up into piles the the skiers who crowded onto the runs to enjoy a last weekend which great snow. These runs are the glacier runs and go even higher than the revolving restaurant, so this is as high as either JJ or I have skied before.
