You know that feeling. You’ve pushed hard up the climb and endured the freezing 15 minutes while you break through the cloud. Or maybe you’ve exerted yourself in parking your bum on the seat of a chairlift. The feeling ion your chest is the same though, when you look out over everything else below you.
These are my all time favourite top of the world spots.
The top of the chairlift that starts in Chatel, France, and finishes looking out over the Swiss countryside. Buy your burger in Euro at the bottom, and your energy drink in Swiss Francs at the top.
Avoriaz, France. A spot familiar to skiers, snowboarders, MTBers, Tour de France riders alike.
