Zermatt

In keeping with my new year's resolutions 3 & 4, I've just come back from a week in Zermatt. Skiing was fantastic, snow in great condition, weather so-so, and all-in-all a great break.

Zermatt is so picturesque it feels like a film set, and although the skiing isn't so extensive, it was more than enough for 5 days. We even managed a grand dinner in celebration of the 140th anniversary of Edward Whymper's first ascent of the Matterhorn, his account of which is a must-read for anyone interested in Alpine mountaineering.

I now have 5 weeks to get in shape for the next one :-)
