QUEEN: A Day at the Slopes
Thinking of taking the plunge on a European ski vacation? Queen drummer Roger Taylor has just the destination for you -- Zermatt, Switzerland.
He says, "I went to Zermatt for the first time in 1980 and I was instantly smitten by everything about the place. It is extreme in its beauty and its fearsome, steep mountains, and is very pure in its 'Swiss-ness.' I love skiing, and I believe Zermatt is the perfect ski resort, with more than a dozen or so peaks towering at 13,000-plus feet in the surrounding area. It also has some of the best-looking mountains across the globe, including the Matterhorn, which is probably the most spectacular peak in the world."
Taylor even suggests you stay at the Hotel Post, a former hang for rock stars.
