Beginners skiing in Villars

Villars is an excellent choice for beginners, with gentle nursery slopes by the resort and also at the top of the Bretaye, reached by the scenic mountain railway. The ski schools are excellent and will ensure you are soon onto higher, gentle pistes.

Intermediates skiing in Villars

Intermediate skiers will really enjoy the wealth of excellent blue and red runs throughout the linked Alpes Vaudoise network. Try the reds and blues from the top of Le Mazots.

Advanced skiing in Villars

There is plenty of high mileage skiing in the whole area as well as challenging long runs. On the Glacier des Diablerets, enjoy the 10km red run down the Combe d’Audon.

Snowboarding in Villars

The area has become more and more associated with snowboarding over the last few years. It has had a lot of coverage in magazines such as Onboard due to Diableret’s year round pipe and park. There is some superb freeriding in the backcountry – hire an off-piste guide to fully exploit it. In early April, Villars hosts ‘Snowbombing’ – the biggest music and snowboard festival in the Alps.

Après ski in Villars

Villars is a cosy village with a few lively bars such as Murphy’s and late night El Gringo’s.
