We just received a report from guide Liz Smart on the Alps Classics Program. On Day 1 everyone summited the Rifflehorn during a rock training session.
The team rode the cograil train back down from the base of the Rifflehorn to town and will spend another night at their hotel in Zermatt. Tomorrow they head up to climb Pollux (4092m) and will stay overnight at the Val d’Ayas Hut on the border between Italy and Switzerland. It appears that conditions are good and the team is off to a good start!
