Here, Prince: Verbier Ski Resort, Switzerland

British Prince William and his possible princess bride Kate Middleton, skied recently in Verbier, a year-round alpine Swiss resort popular with wealthy Brits. When they weren’t on the slopes, they dined at Chez Dany, a local bistro, and stayed at Les Trois Chouettes (“The Three Owls”), a chalet owned by some friends.

Verbier is also the site of Switzerland’s most important cycling race — the Grand Raid Cristalp — with more than 4,000 bikers annually, as well as a music festival each July/August, and a celebrated horse tournament (this August 6-14). Info:
