Ski touring in the Vaud Alps
No more queues to take the ski lifts, you are as free as a bird! Follow our ski touring routes and discover the Vaud Alps with the strength of your legs... the descent will only be more beautiful!
Ski touring is a sporting activity that consists of traversing the mountains in winter on skis. Like snowshoes, it allows lovers of wide open spaces to discover authentic nature, on skis! In ski touring, it is with the strength of your legs that enables you to go up the slopes.
Closer to nature, this activity allows you to evolve at your own pace in wide open spaces in order to reach a summit or a viewpoint via marked ski touring routes. You go up with the help of “sealskins” then go down again on off-piste skiing or on the slopes of a ski area.
Our destination offers you the ideal playground for practising ski touring. Whether you are a beginner, occasional skier or already a professional, our many marked trails take you to the heart of the Vaud Alps.
In Villars-Gryon-Les Diablerets, the Rando Parc offers marked and safe routes for all levels. In the Pays-d'Enhaut, several routes are very popular for the practice of this discipline dedicated to lovers of wide open spaces.
A unique playground to practise this 100% natural discipline!
