Les Diablerets   Skiing In Swiss Alps

For anybody looking for an undiscovered Swiss resort with a short transfer time and guaranteed year-round skiing, Les Diablerets is a must.

Les Diablerets

Les Diablerets

Join us for a ski holiday to remember in the charming and beautiful resort of Les Diablerets, which lies in the heart of the Vaud Alps in Switzerland. Located just over an hour away from Geneva, this beautiful “chocolate box” village enjoys a stunning setting, and is overlooked by the enormous Glacier 3000 ski area – meaning the resort can guarantee year round skiing. Loved by the Swiss, it’s great base for skiers, lying within easy reach of several different ski areas, all of which are covered by the region’s Alpes Vaudoises ski pass.

Great days & nights

For a complete change, head to the nearby resort Leysin. Lake Geneva, the largest lake in Central Europe lies just below Leysin Village and on a clear day we may be able to see the Eiger and the Matterhorn. The area offers pistes of all grades served by an excellent interlinking lift and transport system so there are some superb skiing days out to be had.

After a hard, but fun day out on the slopes, its time for some après-ski! There are a variety of bars and cafés to try in this welcoming Swiss village, as well as a disco, ice skating, curling, snow-shoeing and a long toboggan run for anybody looking for an extra adrenalin rush.

On the slopes

Intermediates can enjoy the slopes in the Meilleret ski area, accessible by a chairlift 500m from our hotel and from here we can ski on to the more extensive and challenging pistes of the neighbouring resort of Villars.

Alternatively, the Isenau gondola, served by the ski shuttle bus and within walking distance of our hotel, takes us up to a second ski area, where there are some interesting blue runs down to the village, and also a linking run to the cable car which accesses the snow-sure Glacier 3000 ski area. Here there are a variety of runs suitable for all standards of skiers as well as some amazing scenery and views to enjoy. For those who relish the challenge of a good black run, there is a long red/black slope down to the valley. Les Diablerets also has an excellent ski school if you are a beginner or are looking to brush up your technique.

Hotel Les Sources

Built in the traditional Swiss style, our family run hotel is located close to the centre of the village and within walking distance of the Meilleret chair lift and the Isenau gondola.

Facilities include

There is a cosy lounge area where we can gather in the evenings.

Rooms Include 

Each simple but comfortable room contains satellite TV, radio and hairdryer. Free Wi-Fi is available.

Useful Information

Transfer Time
The transfer time from Geneva Airport to Hotel Les Sources is approximately 2 hours, depending on weather and traffic.

Skiing Programme
You may either take group ski lessons, private ski lessons or form groups to enjoy exploring the slopes together. Whatever you preference your Tour Leader will be available to help organise your skiing.

Ski Hire
Poor piste conditions can be hazardous to ski equipment as uncovered rocks and stones can easily scratch and damage skis and snowboards. We strongly recommend you inspect your ski hire equipment at the start of your holiday and agree the state of their condition with the ski hire suppliers, as clients are responsible for the care of their hired equipment and should this equipment be damaged the ski hire suppliers are within their rights to ask for a compensation payment.

Ski Equipment
This can be hired in the resort where you will be advised about the most suitable equipment for your standard of skiing. It is very important to have ski boots that are comfortable and fit well, so do not be afraid to keep going back and changing your boots until you get a good fit. For your safety, we advise that you wear a ski helmet wherever possible.

Ski Passes
6 day adult CHF260.00 approx

Ski School
6 days/2 hours per day: CHF240.00 approx (subject to sufficient English speaking ski school numbers)

Ski Hire
Ski/boot hire/helmet: approx CHF222 per week

Dress Code
On a skiing holiday, dress is generally very informal, the emphasis being on comfort and warmth. We recommend that you pack a pair of skiing trousers and warm ski jacket or a waterproof shell and separate fleece lining or an all-in-one ski suit. Thermal or silk underwear is recommended. Cotton/cotton mix roll necks, T-shirts or sweat shirts; several thin layers are better than one thick layer. Ski socks, ski gloves or mitts and a hat or headband are suggested. Where temperatures are expected to be well below zero, take a facemask or balaclava. Moon boots or waterproof walking shoes are a “must”. Suntan cream (high protective factor), lip salve, sunglasses and/or goggles are all very useful items to pack. Casual clothes are ideal for the evenings; it is unusual on skiing holidays to dress formally in the evenings.

Gratuities
We suggest a Group Collection to cover transfer drivers, and hotel staff of CHF20.00 per person or the equivalent in local currency. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate Ͽo add on. If you choose to have ski lessons, you may also like to thank your ski instructor at the end of the week with a token of appreciation.
