Helicopters fly some of the 13,000 trapped tourists out of Swiss ski resort Zermatt after snow blocked roads… while other holidaymakers make the most of being stuck in winter paradise:

  • Snow has blocked all roads and the train leading to resort of Zermatt, a popular ski station in the Swiss Alps 
  • There are currently ‘around 13,000’ guests at the resort, head of the train station Janine Imesch has explained
  • Reconnaissance flight has been planned over area to determine how to deal with the extraordinary situation
  • Tourists have been making the most of the situation indulging in a spot of après-ski to pass the time
  • Helicopters have finally begun the process of evacuating the stranded skiers while trains begin to move again
