Les Diablerets Resort Overview

Located at 1,200m and reaching up to 3,000m at its highest lift, Les Diablerets sits majestically in the heart of the Vaud Alps. As the gateway to the Alpes Vaudoises ski area, the resort boasts 125km of diverse, skiable terrain.

Established in the 19th century, Les Diablerets village is dotted with charming, wooden chalets that offer a range of accommodation, including ski-in-ski-out options and luxury hotels.
