Prior to the start of last winter, I spent two years going from season to season across the world. Whilst chatting with colleagues and ski buddies I met on these adventures, the ‘Best resorts you have ever skied in’ conversation would often crop up. Zermatt was a name that was often mentioned. Skiers would paint a picture of the challenging steeps, testing mogul runs and endless off-piste exploration. To top it off, every turn was made with the iconic Matterhorn in full view. It quickly found a a place atop my ‘Resort bucket list’ and I made a plan to spend the following season there training and working with Altitude.
