The word “Matterhorn” reminds me of that old Goofy cartoon where he skis off a jump with a “yahoohoohoowee,” and crashes right into his bed.
I found the actual Matterhorn to be as breathtaking as I still find that cartoon funny. Here are some photos from my trip to Zermatt over Thanksgiving 2013, a trip on which our Jamaican bus driver cooked us a delicious Carribean-style Thanksgiving dinner, using the kitchen of a small Swiss restaurant. Not your typical Turkey Day, but definitely one for the record books.
Happy skiing and après skiing!
