The famous Zermatt

Last week we had our white week (read four days) in one of the best skiing places in Europe. Good slopes, lot of choices, fantastic weather...we really enjoy it even if in the last day we almost got stuck in the Italian side. The wind started and they closed one of the chairlifts just behind us ...and there was a second one to take to reach the top and cross to Swiss part. We needed more than 30 minutes for a ride that usually takes 10. The wind gust were so strong that the chairlift was stopping every 5 meters. Anyway I like Zermatt a lot and now is difficult to decide between Zermatt and Courmayeur where we skied last year. Anyway both of them are quite famous and I understand why. We took some nice photos but still you have to go there to appreciate the place properly. Hopefully we will have the chance to go back someday.
