Suitable for intermediates and advanced
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 a 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.
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.
Intermediates can enjoy the slopes in the Meilleret ski area, accessible by a Gondola, 400m from our hotel. From here we can ski on to the more extensive and challenging pistes of the neighbouring resort of Villars.
The snow-sure Glacier 3000 ski area is easily accessible by the local ski bus with the bus stop approximately 3 minutes walk from the hotel. The bus takes around 15 minutes to reach the lift station. Here there are a variety of runs suitable for all standards of skiers as well as some amazing scenery and views to enjoy.
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 Gondola.
There is a cosy lounge area where we can gather in the evenings.
Each simple but comfortable room contains satellite TV, radio and hairdryer. Free Wi-Fi is available.
The transfer time from Geneva Airport to Hotel Les Sources is approximately 2 hours, depending on weather and traffic.
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.
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.
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.
6 day adult CHF279 approx ( payment is required in cash). There are no concessions for Senior Citizens.
6 days/2 hours per day: CHF240.00 approx (subject to sufficient English speaking ski school numbers)
Ski/boot hire/helmet: approx CHF230 per week
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.
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.

I was so nervous about embarking on my first Solos Holiday, but I shouldn’t have been – it was the best thing I have ever done!
Wow! Got to see the famous shipwreck beach in Zakynthos with Solos. Can’t wait to discover more of their destinations!
Our tour leader Monica was exceptional! Had such a good time and will be rebooking with Solos. Thanks for a great holiday!
