All Photos Chris Patient

Chris Patient has lived in Zermatt for 20 years and is one of the top local photographers. You can find him most evenings working in the legendary North Wall Bar. Incidentally, the North Wall Bar serves up Zermatt's  best pizzas and cheapest beers to a hardcore crowd of (largely) English-speaking skiers and climbers. Be sure to visit if you like that sort of thing! Tell 'em you saw them at 'Ski-Zermatt'. Click here for a map to locate the North Wall Bar (North Wall Bar website).
