Villars ski schools Ski lessons, ski touring & off-piste clinics in Villars
There are several Villars ski schools and ski touring mountain guide companies each offering a comprehensive ranges of lessons for all ages and abilities for both skiing, snow boarding and other mountain disciplines. Villars is ideal for learning as the sunny south facing slopes on the plateau at Bretaye (1800m) offer gentle pistes for absolute beginners that are well linked to wide and long cruising blue runs.
Ski guiding & touring
To experience the full extent of what Villars has to offer, why not try some ski touring in the Alpes Vaudoises. Expert local guides will navigate you around the high mountain trails off Glacier 3000 and over in to Gstaad where there is an abundance of off-piste opportunities.
Some of the best ski tours from Villars include...
Diablerets to Leukerbad
This 6 day tour is for good skiers taking you via the Wildhorn and Wildstrube huts before arriving at the wonderful thermal spa resort of Leukerbad. From Villars, its a gentle ski over to the Glacier 3000 lift and then it starts to get interesting. The tour takes you up to Arpelistock (3035m), across the Tungel glacier and there are some teriffic long off-piste sections - not to be missed!
Some of the ski schools operate during the summer months offer guided hiking tours and mountain climbing and many more mountain adventure activities. A very popular walk is from Scex Rouge to Quille du Diable on Les Diablerets glacier and does not require a guide.
