Villars, in the French speaking part of Switzerland, is a simple place that sits in view of the high peaks of the Les Diablerets Glacier, where you can snowboard winter and summer. Villars is a popular place that get its fair share of visitors throughout the season. The slopes are well spread out covering the Les Chaux and Bretaye areas and linked after some careful navigation, with the base area at Les Diablerets.
Overall the place is not noted for being a hardcore destination, in fact, it's true to say that this is a resort that favours piste loving hard boot carvers and family ski groups. However, the resort has a good attitude towards snowboarding and regularly allows its slopes to be used for various competitions.
If you get a bit tired of it here and fancy something a more challenging, you can easily head up to Les Diablerets and ride harder and faster.
