Ski Les Diablerets by Train

84 km of piste between 1200-3000m

Les Diablerets (Home of the Devils) is a pretty village served by a scenic train service out of Aigle. The main ski area at Meilleret (1949m) is accessed by a gondola installed in 2018 to replace an old chairlift, whilst a chairlift at the top gives access to the popular Villars ski area. Overlooking the village and accessible by a post bus and a navette is the glacier on Diablerets at an often chilly but reliably snowsure 3000m. Sadly the old Isenau (2120m) ski area, which linked to two, has been closed down whilst funds and agreement are being worked on. Villars is the more popular package holiday destination, but family-friendly Les Diablerets has much to commend itself.
