Swiss Slopes Get Groomed Preparing Terrain for Skiers

VILLARS-SUR-OLLON, Switzerland Snow groomers were out at dusk smoothing the terrain on the western slopes of the Swiss Alps ready for skiers.

Adrian Jaggy and his snow groomer were busy preparing the slopes in the Tele Villars-Gryon-Les-Diablerets ski area in the snow-blanketed village of Villars-sur-Ollon, 90 kilometers (56 miles) west of Geneva.

Villars, a quaint little village with chalets dotted around the western Vaud Alps, sits 1,300 meters above sea level and boasts some 270 kilometers of pistes for skiing and snowboarding of varied abilities.

As well as skiing, the region is well known for its vineyards and nature trails, some of which offer striking views of the Mont Blanc and Lake Geneva.

The high ski season in the Alps takes off mid-January with good snow coverage will into March and sometimes April.
