A brilliant 2 days ski touring in Zermatt taking advantage of good weather and snow. There are more pictures here.

First, we climbed the Breithorn from Klein Matterhorn, reaching the summit above a sea of clouds.

                                                                     We skied off the top and down the Theodul glacier all the way to Zermatt - 2500m of descent.

                                         Next day, we skied and skinned round to the Schwartztor glacier, and again found good snow and fresh tracks.
