Les Diablerets (Home of the Devils) is a pretty village served by a scenic train service out of Aigle with three distinct, and very different, mountains. Meilleret (1949m) is mostly below the tree line and connects to the busy Villars ski area, the Isenau (2120m) area has some pleasant sunny runs good for beginners and intermediates and a great park (with a couple of half pipes), and then there is the glacier on Diablerets at an often chilly but reliably snowsure 3000m. Villars is the more popular package holiday destination, but family-friendly Les Diablerets has much to commend itself as a holiday destination.
