Supertravel Ski - 150th anniversary of the first Matterhorn ascent


 
Aug. 27, 2014 - PRLog -- 26 August 2014

2015 will see the 150th anniversary of the first ascent of the Matterhorn mountain (4,478m), one of Switzerland’s iconic images, conquered by the British climber Edward Whymper on 14 July 1865.  Meanwhile, Supertravel Ski, the luxury ski specialist, will be marking its own 50th anniversary in 2015.  An interesting quirk of fate, due to new Swiss employment legislation being enacted in its Golden Anniversary year, means that Supertravel Ski is now just one of two British tour operators still offering luxury ski holidays in the exciting Swiss resort of Zermatt, where skiing first started for the British traveller many years ago.

See below for Supertravel Ski’s special offers in Zermatt for the coming ski season, in celebration of its 50th anniversary – available only for early bookings made in September.
