In the first episode’s cold open, the Air Zermatt team rescues a severely injured man from deep within an icy crevasse. The intensity is real and the tension is palpable in this risky rescue mission
Only thirty years ago, falling into a crevasse on a glacier was a death sentence. Today, with faster response times and more advanced technologies, survival is possible, but still; it’s a race against time that can only be won by a team with great skill and experience. Air Zermatt’s teamwork and mutual trust will be put to the test in the heart-stopping rescue of a skier who has fallen into the darkness of a 30-meter (nearly 100-foot) deep crevasse of glacial ice. In a race against time, the team must coordinate the rescue of the seriously injured skier before his body heat melts the millennia-old ice around him, encasing himself in a frozen tomb.
