Villars Skiing and Snowboarding

Villars has a good variety of wide, open and wooded slopes. The cog train heads up through the village to the Col of Bretaye which has intermediate slopes on either side. The other side has open slopes that go to La Rasse and link to the Les Chaux sector. Beginners will have fun on the village nursery slopes and also at the top of Bretayne. Intermediates will love the wealth of excellent blue and red runs. The reds and blues from the top of Les Mazots are worth a visit. Experts will find plenty of high mileage skiing and boarding throughout the area as well as some challenging long runs to test the legs on. However, the main attraction for experts will be the off piste and heli-skiing. There are long trails up the valley past La Rasse for cross country skiers. For those people looking for terrain parks then you will find them at Les Chaux and Chaux Ronde. There is also a half pipe at Les Diablerets.
