Skiers had been stranded in the resort because of heavy snowfall and exceptional risk of avalanches
Helicopters are evacuating stranded holidaymakers from the upmarket Swiss ski resort of Zermatt after about 13,000 tourists were stranded in the mountain village for two days by heavy recent snowfall and an exceptional risk of avalanches.
Local police said the airlift was taking about 100 people an hour who urgently needed to leave Zermatt to the nearby village of Täsch, a three minute flight, from where rail replacement buses were available for their onward journey.

Stufe 5 von 5 im gemäss . Das letzte Mal gab es Stufe 5 vor 9 Jahren mit einer ähnlichen Wetterlage wie aktuell. Föhn aus Südost brachte viel Neuschnee nach .
