Walk the walk:

The Sunday Telegraph - Travel - - Front Page -

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.
