Why Climb the Matterhorn With Alpine Ascents?
Honestly, I cannot think of ANYTHING you could have done to improve my experience. Great company, great guide, great weather, great huts, great organization of itinerary, great mountains! EVERYTHING was perfect! -2019 Climber
We have been guiding the Matterhorn for the past 15 years. Our familiarity with the region, combined with our expertise and knowledge around the world lend a depth and richness to every expedition that we feel is unrivaled in the guiding community.
One of the most important factors in the success and enjoyment for our climbers has been the ability to adjust our climbing schedules as needed to account for the ever-changing conditions in the mountains. Rather than throwing our hands up and ending an expedition when a route may become unclimbable, we treat these situations as challenges in their own right. Thanks to our experience and local expertise, we can change locations mid-expedition if necessary and offer alternate climbs and adventures for our climbers. When such occasions have arisen, our climbers regularly praise these adjustments as highlights of their expeditions.
This is a note to let you know what my experience was in Zermatt and with Johnathon and Hans. I would like to say that I have done climbing numerous peaks over the last 25 years. I have used guides a number of times and have never experienced the quality of the guides Johnathon, Hans, and Cece.
