This difficult weeklong ski expedition covers the Haute Route (“high route), a well-traveled, well-marked trail two miles above sea level that stretches 110 miles across the Alps. It’s most famous for its spectacular mountain top views. You’ll zip through a couple mountain villages (a perfect place to stock up on hearty food) and you can sleep at small camping huts above the tree line along the way. Go in late March, April, or early May when the huts are open and the snowpack is perfect. ($2695 per skier; mountainschool.com)
Who said you have to be 65 and retired to see the world? The clock is ticking, so check some of these sweet trips off your bucket list before you’re 30.
