The Mighty Matterhorn Luxury Ski Holidays in the Matterhorn Valley of Cervinia, Italy offer some of the most superb skiing in the Alps. Cervinia is a high altitude resort at 2000 meters, dominated by the mighty Matterhorn, with reliable snow conditions throughout the Winter from December right through to April. The long, open runs and easy gradients of Plateau Rosa are ideal for advanced beginners and intermediates from which you can enjoy some fantastic views. More advanced skiers can head to Valtournenche and Zermatt, Switzerland for an incredible ski area at their disposal. Valtournenche is an old village approximately 9 km from Cervinia whilst Zermatt is on the Swiss side, both link into the ski area of Cervinia.  Cervinias biggest asset is its altitude and skiing continues well into the summer months on the attractive Plateau Rosa, set against a magnificent glacial backdrop. In addition there are plentiful winter activities to be undertaken such as ice-skating, snowshoes walking, snow bike, paragliding and climbing on the beautiful Via Ferrara del Gorbeillon. #lover'smilestone#lanternshow#hiking#naturalwonders#roadtrip#summervacation#hikingtrails#urbanexplorer

#beyondborders Do you know Toblerone chocolate? I guest most ppl ate it before or heard of it. The mountain on the package is Matterhorn! I finally get to see it in real! I just live this place so much! The only sad thing is I didn’t get to ski because you can only ski in the morning during the summer time! If you are interested in skiing in there during summer, remember to go in the morning! #beyondborders

Switzerland Travel | Switzerland's most beautiful snow mountain here, don't go see the Jungfrau! - A lot of people mentioned Switzerland, they all went to Interlaken to see the Jungfrau, but Matte Peak please pay more attention! Really don't be too beautiful - may say that Matterhorn is a bit strange, but I believe many people must have eaten the huge, infinitely red-wrapped Swiss triangular chocolate toad (Toblerone), the brand logo and The design inspiration for the styling is based on the Matterhorn. So come to this place and take a picture of Figure 1 to prove that you are here! - If you like hiking friends, I really really recommend everyone to play here, climb the 4478m Matterhorn, walk down the mountain to find the iconic reflection, pick the blueberry Mushroom licking. Along the way, you can also see the exclusive black sheep pheasant in Valais, the soil-fertilized round groundhog, the sprouting cow - route: go to Matterhorn first from Zermatt town, arrive at Matt There are three recommended routes on the way to the Hongfeng Lookout. You can get a map at the train station. Choose the route that suits you. If you don't exercise regularly, choose a gentle one. - Tips: Recommended App: :OBB Swiss Railway:SBB Map:google map Translation Software: A Road Translate Coop weather software: Meteoswiss (must be optimistic about the weather and then climb the mountain) hiking equipment up to the mountain can be purchased and rented, the purchase price is very expensive, it is recommended that you rent in the mountains, the price will be much cheaper.

The Zermatt Ski Resort in Switzerland, one of the best snow resorts in the world, has a total length of 360 kilometers and covers an area of Switzerland and Italy. The wide snowy road is like a warm embrace, and the speed is fast and there is no fear that ice and stones will be hidden under the snow. This is a year-round snow park and skiing in summer. Night, after the snow field was closed, the snow machine began to silently trim the snowy road. They lit up the headlights and roared out a neat line on the snow. If you are willing to spend an extra 42 Swiss francs, you can also enjoy the special services provided by the snow field. At 7:30 in the morning, you will be the first to destroy the new snow road...

Zermatt, a small town known as the City of Glaciers, is located among the peaks of the Alps and is a world-famous mountain-free tourist attraction. The environment is elegant and the air is fresh, with magnificent views of the mountains and glaciers. There is no gasoline exhaust in the whole city, all cars are trams, or they are carriages. So the air quality here is very, very good, I have to take a deep breath here! Zermatt This charming mountain village is worth the price of Matterhorn. From the town, take a mountain train or cable car to the observatory of the Gorna Glat Glacier Paradise and enjoy the majestic mountains in front of you, overlooking the glaciers and the famous Matterhorn. The best way to see in Zermatt is to walk along with me to experience this beautiful town. Seeing this amazing beauty, I began to understand why Zermatt would be so popular with European and American travelers. Because it can be said that it is effortless to see the most distinctive landmark of the Swiss in this close-up, the Matterhorn Matterhorn.

On another gear train, we came to the starting point of the Wuhu Trail. There are five small lakes on this road, such as amber, scattered in the valley. When it came out of the cable car station, it was hit by the surging autumn colors. Among the rolling hills, the Matterhorn was still proud of the sky, surrounded by pine forests, autumn, and golden in the sun. Walking not far, you can reach the lake of Leisee. The lake is quite large, the lake is crystal clear, and the sleeping stones in the water are different. The Matterhorn carries the boundless autumn colors and reflects in the water. The leisurely tourists are lying or sitting by the lake, breathing the wonderful autumn, soaking in the uniqueness. In the scenery, look at the book and look up at the mountain, enjoying the slow time. Follow the narrow path along the mountainside to the next lake. From time to time, you can meet people walking or even riding on the trails. Among them, there are many young children, walking or riding, walking through the scenery, and also becoming the scenery in our shots. Unknowingly, I met the second lake, Moosjisee, which is small in size, but the water is magnificent, like the same pool of glass, set in autumn. Due to the limited physical strength of the peers, we have only walked along the Wuhu Trail. The latter Grensee, Grindjisee, Stellisee need to walk longer and climb to the steep slope to be seen. It is said that the last lake also has the beautiful reflection of the Matterhorn. This time, it is the best reason to come back to Matterhorn.

Among the alpine mountains of the Alps, Matterhorn is one of the coldest. She is covered with snow all the year round, proudly independent, and the mountains are straight into the sky. For all those who love photography, such poses, curves, and fascinating reflections are incurable poisons. We live in Zermatt at the foot of the mountain. Early the next morning, take the first gear train and go to the Riffelsee lake to shoot the sunrise. From the station along the gravel hillside stumbled into the dream, everything was silent. Matt Hunfeng stands proudly on the horizon, the mountains are not grassy, the snow is vertical and horizontal, and the skin without the snow is shining with blue light. The left and right ridges stretch and guard the main peak. In the early morning, the ice lake is as flat as a mirror, and the algae in the water are vague, and the snow peaks reflect. The rocks along the lake were scattered, and the grass was covered with frost, but the nameless white velvet was also tenaciously opened. We set up a tripod by the lake, quietly waiting for the first dawn in this cold wonderland. The sun climbed up the Dome Peak not far away, and slowly descended to the spire of Matterhorn, and gradually smeared it and ignited it. In such a peerless landscape, you will always think of a lot of things that you have experienced, people you have loved, people who have lost, and faces that have been forgotten - they always seem to stay in the corner of memory. This moment is also illuminated by the sun. When the entire ridge is awakened, the glow of the lake is stained with water, and as the picture trembles with the light, everything begins to heat up and the dream gradually dissipates I realize that I have forgotten to press the shutter for myself.
