Its a brilliant mountain top and the viewing platform opposite presents a wonderful vista. Watching the sun rise and light up the Matterhorn from the tip towards its slopes was an amazing experience!

When skiing in this large ski arena we come to many different places where we saw the Matterhorn from different sides, in different light: amazing! How could we not make tons of pictures...?

I stared and stared at the Matterhorn our whole ski trip. It's just so striking and so beautiful, you wonder about all that glacial history and wish you could have known and seen how it was formed.

No matter how many times you see it, no matter the angle you see it from, this mountain is always awesome! It is omnipresent and dominates this region entirely.

Visiting the Matterhorn is simply an amazing experience. Skiing is world class and you can take the mountain down to several countries. We stayed in Zermatt and the gondola is a short walk (10-15 minutes) from most of the hotels. Take your camera and capture everything. Spectacular!

Worth seeing "the original." Fingers crossed for a sunny day to admire the mountain's different faces.
