Hello from Zermatt, Switzerland.
Today was the first day of our Matterhorn expedition. The team all met this morning over breakfast and coffee. By mid day the team was up at over 8,000ft working on our technical rock climbing and alpine climbing skills. We had a fun and relaxing first day as our climbers adjust both to the altitude and the time zone.
During our skill session classroom we had amazing views of the Matterhorn. The mountain looks to be in great shape and we have reports of climbers summiting. Alpine Ascents had there first team summit the Matterhorn 3 days ago on a private expedition. Congrats again to David and Tim for their success on the Matterhorn.
Tomorrow our team is heading into the Saas Almageller valley to spend 2 nights/3 days working on skills, climbing peaks, and acclimatizing.
We will be in touch shortly and thanks for following our cybercast.
