It is ideal for families and beginners, because of the mainly blue pistes. Six ski lifts serve the pistes: 5 surface lifts and 1 gondola. The Swiss ski and snowboard school offers beginners courses. There is also a snowpark with two lines, ideal for snowboarding fans.
Due to its steep pistes, Meilleret has blue and red pistes that are suitable for intermediate as well as advanced skiers. The sub-area has 3 chairlifts and 6 surface lifts. The main attraction of Meilleret station is the toboggan run. At 7.2 km, it is one of the longest in Switzerland. From the mountain station of the Mazots chairlift, at 1717 m altitude, to the village of Les Diablerets, the sledders overcome an altitude difference of 560 m on this extraordinary route. The exciting ride takes about three quarters of an hour. Another highlight in Meilleret for piste fans: the new Jorasse floodlit piste.
Incredible experiences await skiers of all abilities on the Glacier 3000. Beginners can discover the pleasures of glacier skiing on specially prepared pistes at 3000 m altitude. Ski professionals, however, brought the Combe d'Audon fun and thrills. With a length of 7 km, the Combe d'Audon is one of the most difficult black pistes in the region. Accessible via the glacier, the piste has both flat sectors and steep pistes. The piste requires a lot of physical strength and technical skills from experienced skiers. It is therefore not surprising that the Combe d'Audon is the annual venue for extreme ski races. From time to time you can also go deep-snow skiing, especially after snowfalls. Then the piste is secured but not rolled.
