Zermatt Matterhorn

You won’t be skiing down the Matterhorn itself, but you will have a jaw-dropping view of it from the top of the Klein Matterhorn lift, the highest in Europe. That would be at the dizzying elevation of 12,736 feet, so make sure you’re acclimated first. You have the option to ski down the Italian side of the mountain to the villages of Cervinia or Valtournenche, or to the town of Zermatt on the Swiss side. Either way, it’s a long trip—the biggest on-piste vertical drop in the world.
