Sure, the Haute Route linking Chamonix and Zermatt is an iconic, beautiful ski tour, but being the most popular ski traverse in the world, it’s also massively overrun with thousands of skiers each winter. Switzerland’s Bernese Oberland offers skiing amongst the iconic Jungfrau, Eiger, and Monch peaks, an extensive and (largely) crowd-free hut system. Stay in Wengen, a car-free village in the shadow of the Eiger where kids sled to school and a 100-year-old cog train ferries skiers to the resort’s slopes. From Wengen, ride the Wegnernalp cog train about 30 minutes to Kleine Scheidigg, where you transfer to another train that snakes through the north face of the Eiger and up to the Jungfraujoch. Hop off, strap in, and ski down the Aletschgletscher, at 14 miles long, the longest glacier in Europe and a UNESCO World Heritage site. This is crevasse-riddled terrain, so hire a guide. Grab tea and cake at the Konkordia Hut, and post up for the night before continuing on to the Finsteraarhorn Hut, or any number of multi-day tour variations.
