TV tip: The mountain rescuer and hut warden

From 20 October 2023, the second season of the four-part documentary series "Hoch hinaus" will be broadcast on SRF. In this series, various people who pursue different passions and professions in the Swiss mountains provide exciting insights into their adventurous everyday lives. The series begins with a portrait of rescue specialist and mountain hut warden Richard Lehner. Viewers witness Lehner being called to several rescues together with Air Zermatt.

Rochard Lehner has been a mountain guide and rescue specialist in Zermatt for over two decades. During rescue missions in the mountains, he is called to help and has to get to the injured either by Air Zermatt or on foot. The TV documentary shows how Lehner, together with the Air Zermatt team, comes to the aid of several people in distress. But as a family father of two sons, how far is he prepared to go to save the lives of others?

At the same time, Richard Lehner is also a hut warden: together with Killian Emmenegger, he runs the Monte Rosa Hut, which is located in the heart of Zermatt's impressive glacier landscape. In "Hoch hinaus", Richard Lehner is accompanied in his everyday life during the high season, in the middle of the majestic mountain world of Zermatt.
