The vast Monte Rosa massif dominates the eastern part of the Pennine Alps, and rises to the highest point in Switzerland at 4,634 metres. Since the first ascent back in 1855 by a team of Zermatt guides, it has been a magnet for alpinists. Whilst the most popular climbing season is high summer, during the spring the massif offers some of the most challenging and spectacular ski mountaineering in western Europe, as revealed here by adventure photographer and skier Hamish Frost
