These are some pictures of glaciers in Zermatt and Saas Fee. Glaciers are formed by snow that stays in the same place year-round, when enough snow increases to transform into ice it forms a glacier. Each year new layers form and put pressure on previous layers which means that glaciers are always growing and moving down the mountain.
When we saw the glaciers it was really incredible to be so close and see the colour of it (the colour of a glacier that we saw was a blue colour). It is amazing to look at the shapes that they form.On one of the roads to a piste you can actually touch the glacier!
