Visitor Reviews of Villars
David from Switzerland writes:
Looking forward to another great season in Villars. 2017/2018 was simply massive with so much snow that the snow ploughs were opening up 'never skied before' pistes on a weekly basis.
The Magic Pass was a great success and will no doubt attract a lot of attention from Lausanne & Geneva for the coming winter. The two new chairlifts in Diablerets will make the transfer to/from Glacier3000 even quicker which is welcome news.
The new swimming pool and amazing spa in the centre of the resort are personal favourites and make for the perfect apres-ski wind down.
