Switzerland's Matterhorn is an iconic symbol of the Alps—a pyramidal, isolated mountain between Switzerland and Italy. In March, four cyclists toured Zermatt, Switzerland, and captured beautiful footage at the mountain's base. "We used a variety of techniques ranging from filming on skis with handheld gimbal, drone shots and some time-lapse," said the filmmaker Christian Mülhauser. The result is breathtaking.
