The ski resorts of the Alpes vaudoises stand out thanks to an Olympic half-pipe, a glacier at an altitude of 3,000 metres above sea level offering exceptional snow conditions, as well as ski slopes for all levels, from beginner to advanced, and over a total of more than 230 km of descent! On each of the ski areas, you will have the pleasure of finding slopes adapted to your level.
The connections between the ski areas allow you to fully enjoy your day without doing the same track twice! On the Leysin-Les-Mosses-La Lécherette side, the ski areas are connected by shuttle bus. And as far as the Villars-Gryon- Les Diablerets ski area is concerned, the connections are made by ski lift. It is even possible to reach Glacier 3000 by shuttle bus. It connects the village of Les Diablerets to the Col du Pillon on a regular basis throughout the winter.
Villars-Gryon-Diablerets et Glacier 3000
The Villars-Gryon-Les Diablerets ski area offers more than 130 km of slopes for all levels. Beginners begin their learning with confidence in the many snow gardens. Wide slopes and sunny slopes on an area ranging from 1,200 metres to 3,000 metres above sea level, this playground offers many possibilities. Thanks to the shuttle that connects Les Diablerets to the Col du Pillon, you can reach Glacier 3000 which completes the ski area by allowing you to ski from November to May! If you are a seasoned skier, the Combe d'Audon and its strenuous black run and the Red Run will test your skills. They offer 8 km of slopes with a total drop of 1,700 metres.
Leysin-Les Mosses-La Lécherette
The Leysin-Les Mosses-La Lécherette ski area offers 100 km of varied slopes for all levels. The slopes of Leysin, which are oriented south, offer you a great diversity, whether it is the blue slopes or, for the most experienced, the mogul fields. Freeskiers and freestyle snowboarders can have a blast in the snowpark which is renowned for its quality and its half-pipe in front of which we will find ourselves speechless.
On the Mosses-La Lécherette side, the slopes are wide and perfect for beginner to intermediate levels, ideal for families.
The Rougemont “La Videmanette” ski area, which is located at an altitude of 2,151 metres above sea level, is linked to the Gstaad ski area. More than 23 km of demanding slopes, including the longest descent in the region with its 7.5 km and a drop of 1,160 metres, await experienced skiers and snowboarders. They all enjoy and like to slide in the powder snow at the foot of the limestone massif “Le Rübli”.
