Altitude check: the aloof, imposing presence of the Matterhorn, towering upward on the Swiss-Italian border, provides the ideal backdrop for a striking image of a pair of ski-jumpers pictured aloft. The classic mountain peak has long exercised a fascination for climbers and its name owes its origins to the Matten (Meadows). Ski-jumping is one of the most exciting of all winter sporting pursuits and competitions are popular throughout Alpine centres, where height is an important factor and low-lying areas are exposed to not uncommon spells of warm weather during the winter season.
