Intro

Les Diablerets, an important centre for adventure sports, lies between Lake Geneva and Gstaad at an altitude of 1200 metres. Even in summer, the Glacier 3000 ski region in the heart of the Vaud Alps offers skiing and glacier enjoyment over an expansive area.

In the Middle Ages, the rock wall of the mountain massif which surrounds the small village was regarded as a dangerous and cursed place where the devil did his worst. Accordingly, the place name of Les Diablerets also derives from the French ‘le Diable’, the devil. But no one need harbour any fears in Les Diablerets today, at the most some courage for the multitude of adventurous sports on offer. A varied, child-friendly programme of events and adjusted prices and infrastructure characterise the efforts that have been made to accommodate the needs of our younger guests.

Winter

Three ski regions with a total of 125 km of pistes and a snow park extend up to an altitude of 3000 metres . The cross-country network of tracks consists of 30 kilometers of classical Nordic track and 15 kilometers of skating trails. Further attractions include a 7.2 km long toboggan run, snow-shoe walks, snow biking and ice fall climbing. Last but not least, the glacier restaurant constructed by leading Swiss architect Mario Botta in the Glacier 3000 ski region offers a unique panorama of the Lake Geneva region.

Summer

Active guests in particular will get their money’s worth in Les Diablerets. Skiing and snowboarding until well into the early summer in the glacier ski region of Glacier 3000 offer competition to a wide range of adventure sports: canyoning, hydro speed, paragliding, dirt monster biking (a cross between mountain biking and motorcycling), tyrolienne traversing, or the highest Alpine Coaster (toboggan run on tracks) at the Glacier 3000 mountain station. The «Indiana» fun obstacle course and fixed rope routes round off the activities.

But traditional sports are certainly also on offer: walking (250 km of walking trails) and mountain biking. And excursions to the Aigle viticultural museum not far from Lake Geneva, the Bex salt mine in the lower Valais, or by postal bus across the Col du Pillon to the nearby sophisticated resort of Gstaad are always worthwhile.

Family

From June to October, the resorts Les Diablerets and Villars-Gryon in the Vaudoise Alps offer guests unrestricted access to all types of mountain transportation, and to over 30 sports and cultural activities. In the winter all children under age nine ski for free during the entire season.
