The Ski Resort

The Glacier 3000 ski area near Les Diablerets offers almost 30 kilometres of slopes. Beginners will find easy, blue-marked pistes on the three T-bar lifts on the glacier and on the 4-seater chairlift Glacier-Scex Rouge. More experienced winter sports enthusiasts, on the other hand, can enjoy two of the longest runs in the region: the red run from Scex Rouge to Oldenegg is around eight kilometres long. The black Olden piste (Combe d'Audon) from Oldenhorn to Oldenalp is seven kilometres long and also requires a certain level of skill and fitness. In addition, there is a large snow park on the glacier. Freeriders will also find great routes here.

To enter the ski area you have two options: the cable car Reusch-Oldenegg or the cable car Col du Pillon-Cabane. The only way back down to the valley is a black run from Oldenegg to Reusch, which is only suitable for experienced skiers. All others should descend with the cable cars. The ski season in the snow-sure glacier ski area usually lasts from November to May.

In the ski area you have several mountain restaurants and huts to choose from. You can enjoy a beautiful view of the Val Derborence in the Valais and the Bernese Alps in the Refuge l'Espace at the Quille du Diable. Only regional delicacies are served here.

At the Scex Rouge mountain station you will find the Restaurant Botta. This consists of a restaurant on the 4th floor, a self-service restaurant on the 3rd floor and a terrace on the 2nd floor. There you have a great view of the glacier.

For refreshment after the strenuous descent on the Combe d'Audon, head to Zeller's Skibar on the Oldenalp

You can also stop off in the valley. At the Col du Pillon you will find the restaurant of the same name with a view of the Dar waterfall and the north face of the Scex Rouge. Regional specialities are served here.

If you fancy après-ski at the end of the ski day, the Rooster Bar at the Reusch base station is the place to be. But it is also known for its Fondue au Trois. The bar is only open when the Reusch cable car is in operation.

A visit to the Glacier 3000 ski area is also worthwhile for non-skiers. At the summit of the Scex Rouge, for example, you will find the Peak Walk by Tissot. The 107-meter-long and 80-centimeter-wide suspension bridge offers an impressive view of numerous Alpine peaks such as the Matterhorn, Mont Blanc, Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau at lofty heights. The bridge is accessible free of charge.

The Glacier Walk, a leisurely hike to the Refuge l'Espace restaurant at the Quille du Diable, also starts at the Scex Rouge mountain station.

The Alpine Coaster is only open from May to September. From April to October, there is also a cross-country ski trail of around 7 kilometres on the glacier, which can be used for classic skiing and skating

Getting here

The Glacier 3000 ski area is located between Gstaad and Les Diablerets, directly on the border of the three cantons of Vaud, Valais and Bern. If you are coming from the direction of Gstaad, drive via Gsteig to Reusch. From Les Diablerets you can use the cable car at the Col du Pillon to access the ski area.
