Ski Resorts Nearby

There are several famous ski resorts close to Lausanne. We suggest here some of those: [Villars], [Verbier], and [Les Diablerets] (where PKC'05 took place).


The 77 ski lifts and 220 km of trails of the Villars-Gryon-Les Diablerets and Glacier 3000 ski area mean that you can leave and return to the resort with your skis on your feet, having skied from the 3,000-metre glacier all the way back to the village.

Access from Lausanne

By train (approx. 1 hour 30 min): Go from Lausanne to Aigle, change train and go to Villars-Gryon. Another possibility is to go through Bex instead of Aigle (it takes a little longer though).
By car (approx. 50 min): Highway A9, exit Aigle. Then you need approx. 20 min to get to Villars.
