  • Sometimes arises an opportunity for and then you think ... I can no longer wait until Christmas or crocus, I now want to skiing. That feeling you (me) then especially if you sometime in late september in Zermatt. Fair is fair, the journey to the top is 1 hour one way. And once at the top there is one track. But the idea that you are skiing, and then ah on the Matterhorn on 3900 meters! Yes that you don't want to miss out.

  • Our son 27. The past few years, he dreamed of and prepared to adventure on snow-covered mountains of Matehorna. All the time something hurt. And here is a dream come true this year. What it consists of. You zapisyvaeshsja the group, wanting to see Matehorn from a helicopter and then you shall neobezzhennoj the snowy mountain and you felt with the instructor. What I liked? Firstly, security. They do not fly every day. Waiting for the right wind. That is not all for money. Then even if you took off and the wind changed, they return to base. Do not want to risk lives. According to his son, the sensations are unforgettable. White Mountains and silence. And a small band of lunatics, willing to see these. The Council! How to arrive to sign up immediately. Due to weather and queue. Maybe you're lucky and you will be able to make this descent.
