Villars is popular with second-home owners because of its closeness to Geneva airport. For many keen skiers, its low altitude and far from snow-sure slopes will rule it out. But for a varied family holiday it has its attractions.
News – this season 2012/13
A new SuperPass is to be introduced, which will cover all the Villars-Gryon-Diablerets-Glacier 3000 runs but also those of Gstaad, Leysin and Les Mosses.

A six-pack replaced the double chair to Petit Chamossaire. Two runs were dedicated to slow skiing, one at Bretaye and the other on Les Chaux. A skiercross course was built on the Grand Chamossaire slope. And the Alpe Fleurie restaurant in the resort reopened after refurbishment.
News – 2010/11
Snow-guns now cover the lower slopes from Col de Soud to the resort, and the link with Gryon via La Rasse.
