Zermatt, Switzerland. Zermatt is surrounded by a range of mountains, among which the highest of Switzerland: Monte Rosa, but it is famous for the Matterhorn. It was one of the last alpine mountains to be conquered (in 1865), and the first expedition that reached the top ended dramatically (only 3 of the 7 climbers survived).
Up the train to the gondola to the chair lift(s) to the T-bar lift and never take another lift. SKI ALL DAY in Zermatt, Switzerland. (Don't forget to bring your passport in case you want to ski to Italy for lunch!)
