Luxury Vacations: A heli-drop skiing excursion in Zermatt, Switzerland, is the perfect European winter vacation. Zematt is arguably the greatest destination in the world for the ultimate luxury- skiing vacation. There are slopes for skiers of all levels and heli-drop programs, whereby resorts transport guests to the best skiing and sightseeing in the area.

The Klein Matterhorn is the highest peak reached via cable cars and chair lifts at 3,883 meters (12,740 feet). Along with amazing skiing conditions, many of the best hiking and biking tours of the Swiss Alps begin here, including the Haute Route, which leads to Chamonix in France and the Patrouille des Glaciers.

In order to control air pollution, no carbon-emitting vehicles are allowed in the city of Zermatt. Only electric cars and cable cars are driven only in this German-speaking town with a population of around 6,000.

Four tops: Sunnegga, Gornergrat, Klein Matterhorn and Schwarzsee are the skiing areas of Zermatt.
