Walk the walk:
Ski resorts are a walker’s paradise even in winter – the piste-bashing machines that prepare the ski slopes also compact the snow on marked paths. Rent some snowshoes and get out there. We have lift off: Pedestrian tickets for cable cars and gondolas allow you to meet friends and family for lunch up the mountain. In Wengen, some of the ski lifts are trains – and you can ride one through the Eiger. Once up there, there are thrill rides, too. Resorts have recently been competing to create evermore vertiginous platforms or suspended walkways – for example, the Big 3 in Sölden, Austria.
