The World’s Highest Underground Metro TrainFrom Saas-Fee’s Spielboden ski area, the world’s highest underground metro train barrels up to the Längfluh Glacier, where snowboarders and skiers carve with abandon. The less brave (or less crazy) come to the 11,482-foot-high station for the kitschy-cool revolving restaurant, the ice tunnels, and the exhibits about the glacier.
