Best case scenario you get to ski your whole life without needing the services of any on-mountain search and rescue team. But should you be lucky enough to ski in Zermatt, Switzerland (which we highly recommend!), and then unlucky enough to need an assist getting your kiester off the mountain, it’ll be Air Zermatt coming to your rescue.
Considered one of the world’s best aerial search and rescue teams, Air Zermatt was created to ensure the safety of those who take on the region’s famed Matterhorn by ski or ice axe. “The Horn”, a six-part series now available on Outside TV, follows the team’s brave men and women as they run (or fly, whatever) toward situations most of us spend our lives running away from.
Weekly episodes of “The Horn” are streaming Thursdays at 10pm EST starting April 8 on Outside TV+ available on the free Outside TV App, Samsung TVPlus, The Roku Channel, Vizio WatchFree, Xumo, Redbox, Sling, Dish, STIRR, and more.
