World's Scariest Ski Slopes

Mont Fort and Tortin, Verbier, Switzerland

The Ride: Mogul-phobes, beware: these two bump-studded Alpine trails—which together form the longest run in Verbier’s Four Valleys—will keep your joints jackhammering for about 3,000 vertical feet. If you’ve had knee surgery, avoid this route; if you haven’t, you might need it by the time you get down.

Insider Trivia: Though it’s considered one of the roughest bump runs in Europe, Tortin is actually rated an intermediate trail. But as regulars know, that’s only accurate when there’s a thick layer of powder to cushion your shock absorbers (and your wipeouts).
