Skiing Breithorn

~ Wednesday 29th October 2014

Plan A yesterday was to use the Klein Matterhorn lift to go and climb/ski Pollux and Castor. Although the website said it was open, it turned out the lift is broken and won't be running until late November at the earliest. Hmmm, on to Plan B then!

The Breithorn is well known for being a short ascent from Klein Matterhorn, and the easiest 4000m peak in the Alps. Starting from Trockenersteg adds another 900m vertical, and makes it all quite tiring!

Ready to ski from the Breithorn summit

The mountain was unsurprisingly deserted, and the ski off the top was firm but good.
