A Tryst with the Matterhorn in Zermatt

13 Mar

Our second day in Zermatt was completely packed with numerous activities with a lot of “first time” and “must try” items of my travel list. But the two things that I was most excited about were – up-close and personal views of the Matterhorn and my first step in actual snow. 🙂 We met with Tanya in the morning and she gave all of us our all-inclusive ski passes that included trips on the gondola and ski lifts, a visit to the glacial palace, actual skiing and even  a train ride to Gornergrat. And with these passes in our pockets, we all embarked for our epic day trip up to the Klein Matterhorn.
