matterhorn

Zermatt, Switzerland

This is the place for you if you like resorts that are scenic, upscale, and infused with history. And you think digging into a three-course lunch isn't a bad way to pass a few hours.

This Swiss shepherds' village turned cosmopolitan mountain resort is home to one of the most recognizable peaks in the Alps: the famed Matterhorn. The towering three-sided spire of jagged rock, crooked at the top like a witch's cap, is such a singular and picturesque peak that all sorts of visitors - skiers and nonskiers, royalty and backpackers, serious alpinists and people who'd rather stock up on souvenirs than break a sweat - come from all corners of the globe to have a look.

Features

Thanks to some management changes at the top, Sunday River is now sporting a newer, happier attitude, causing one reader to call it "a civilized version of Killington." But its biggest success is still the Les Otten formula of snowmaking, grooming and lots of fast lifts.
