LES DIABLERETS & GLACIER 3000

Les Diablerets Valley ViewLe Diablerets is a mountain village set in a valley in the heart of the Chablais Alps, at the foot of a mountain range of the Les Diablerets peak from which the town takes its name. The village located in the Lake Geneva region (Vaud) of Switzerland is best known as a ski resort reached by winding road or scenic cog train from Aigle from the south or from Gstaad to the north. The original town name was "Le Plan de Isle" comprised of several little hamlets, but to make postal delivery easier took the name of the nearby mountain and a tourist hotel in the village. Skiing as a sport first came to the area in the middle of the 19th Century when Les Diablerets offered the first ski lift in French speaking Switzerland
