This year is the 150th anniversary of winter tourism in Switzerland – 2013 and 2015 are also big anniversary years, celebrating the first Thomas Cook tour from the UK to Switzerland in 1863 – The Grand Tour as it was known in those far off days – while 2015 celebrates the first ascent of the Matterhorn in 1865.
