Photographer's Note

Three of the most known mountains of the north Alps of Switzerland : the Eiger(3970m), Monch (4099m) and Jungfrau (4158m). There are 2 mountain village on hte bottom of these mountains : Grindelwald and Wengen. Wengen is the ski station that organise the "International Lauberhorn Ski Races". These downhill, which is the longest downhill of the Ski World Cup, will be run next Saterday (Jan 17th).
The Eiger is one of the most famous rock wall of the Alps, the north face is terrible. A lot of climbers have try it, also a lot of are dead in this wall.
The picture was taken during a flight from Bern to Berlin. We was only at 4000 m, just the same altitude as these montains. The rest of the land was cover with coulds. It is why I like this picture.
