France and Zermatt

Postby jasoncapecod » Tue Jul 20, 2010 1:16 pm

My wife wanted to take the kids on there first Euro trip this summer. She wanted Paris and the Loire Valley . I wanted the Normandy (D-Day beaches) and the Alps.

Not wanting to write a play by play of the trip . I'll let the pics speak for themselves.. And the skiing was a absolute blast. Definitely a top ten day

I instantly recognized the Zermatt T-bars, confirmed by the subsequent photo in the village. Nicely done!

Nice shots! I didn't realize it was year round skiing there. Wondering if I can swing some turns on my honeymoon in september. We're going from Grindelwald to Vienna. Anyhow, it looks great!

There about a 100 vertical foot lift off the Jungfraujoch. It's in no way worth it, but you could easily rent the skis up there and go hike partway up one of the surrounding peaks. I'm sure they wouldn't be too happy, but there was clearly nothing stopping you from doing it, although I might not trust the skis they were renting--I'd definitely bring a screw driver to increase the DIN. I'll see if I have any pictures of this area.

Grindlewald is lovely. So is nearby Wengen.
