Photographer's Note

Felskinn is a minor summit in the Pennine Alps, situated near Saas Fee in Switzerland. Altitude is about 3000m. This is the view from exit of cable funicular. There is the junction to lower station of the Metro Alpin which gives access to Mittelallalin.
While the Mittelallalin (about 3500m) is an all year round ski area, from Felskin station begins mountain hiking trails, going at altitude between 2500m and 3200m, crossing glaciers, moraines (left after melted glaciers) and rocks. You can start hiking from there to Britannia Hut and continue to Pllattjen and return to Saas-Fee by another cable funicular (gondola) or return to the Felskinn. I suggest to plan the hiking route before You buy tickets to gondola, because, as I have heard, cable lines are operated by different companies and return ticket bought for Felskinn wil not be accepted at other stations.

Panorama was created from 11 vertical shoots. Take a look at the Large Version.
