Zermatt – Winter Paradise revisited

After our trips to Zermatt in November in December my husband and I were showing our photos and praising the beauty of Zermatt village to our families. My father, who is a avid skier, was fascinated. Every winter he comes to visit us in Lucerne to spend some quality time together. Impressed by our Zermatt experiences he asked us, if we could organise ski trip to this lovely village. Of course, we did.
