You don’t have to wait until winter to ski here, Zermatt offers a certainty of snow all year. Zermatt is home to the highest peak in Europe! Take a cable car ride up the Klein Matterhorn to see 4,000 meters of gorgeous alps. A stone’s throw away from Italy, this location has a lot to offer and explore when you aren’t on the slopes.
SUN VALLEY RESORT
Sun Valley, USA
There are many reasons Sun Valley Resort is at the top of the list for many luxury travelers. This resort has seen numerous improvements in recent years to its infrastructure, as well as its 2,000-acre trail system. But what we love is that its distinctive charm has remained unchanged. In the winter months it attracts celebrities and the wealthy, but still has a rural flair. With two mountains there is a variety of challenging terrain as well as perfectly-groomed slopes for the beginners.
