Stunning Red Lights Mark 150 Years Since The First Ascent Of The Matterhorn…

You'd Be Pretty Pissed Off If One Of These Lights Blew Once You'd Set It All Up.

The Matterhorn is one of the most iconic and beautiful mountains in Europe, and thanks to Swiss brand Mammut – it has now been seen in an even more stunning light.

To mark the 150th anniversary of the first ascent of the mountain, the company commissioned a team to give the route initially scaled in 1865 a stunning glow at dawn.

As you can see from the footage, the lit up Hoernli ridge looks absolutely amazing. Certainly a worthwhile project – and a predictably well executed one – from all involved in Switzerland.
