About this holiday
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.
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.
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.
