To celebrate the completion of Luke's Masters Degree program we headed to Zermatt for the weekend. We woke up early Saturday morning to catch our 6:17 train which we made with 0 seconds to spare. As it was, we were running late to the train station and didn't arrive until 6:10. Then, we had to get the stroller, our snowboards, boots, bags, etc out of the car and run to the platform. When we got there it was 6:15 and we were out of breath. Luke asked if I had my keys and I said no, I thought he still had them. That is when we realized my keys were sitting on top of our car in the parking lot because he thought I had picked them up. Luke took off running to get our keys and 30 seconds later our train arrived. I thought for sure we would be sitting in the snow for an hour waiting for the next one because there was no way Luke would be able to run to the car in back during the 1-2 minutes the train was stopped at the station. But, sure enough Luke came running back and we jumped in the train right as it was ready to leave. We met up with Luke's coworkers in Bern and at 9:00 we were in Zermatt. We headed to the hotel right away and the guys got ready to go skiing while Jack and I got ready to go sledding. By 10am everyone was ready and we walked to the station to buy tickets and just as I was about to buy our sledding ticket, I noticed Jack was down for the count:
On clear days you have an awesome view of the Matterhorn. This is the last city on the Swiss side and once you cross the alps, you will be in Italy.
Later that night we headed out for some good food.
Our first run of the day was right at the foot of the Matterhorn
We arrived home safe and sound, but completely exhausted. Now we have two days to rest and then it's off to Barcelona for Christmas. Good thing too because I need a vacation ;-)
