Long Description: 
The most mountainous region in Switzerland, the Valais has some of the highest peaks in Europe including the Matterhorn. Since the middle of the 1800s, the snow, the blue skies and Swiss hospitality have attracted tourists to this area. You'll see twenty-four of the world's best snowboarders drop down 10,000 feet of uncharted mountain, travel along with the Glacier Patrol as they race across the top of the Swiss Alps, learn the art of curling, discover the secrets of dog- sledding, tend the Dalai Lama's vineyard and take a train ride through some of the world's most beautiful country.
