Snowshoes: Route Isenau-Pillon

From the skiing area of Col du Pillon, admire the breathtaking view of the Mountain of Diablerets from this beautiful and easy walk with snowshoes.

To join the start of this walk marked Swiss Snow Shoe n°2, take the Isenau cable car from the centre of the village of Diablerets. The route begins along the terrace of Isenau's restaurant, then crosses the ski piste and continues on the path also for pedestrians. Continue the route by the plaine des Moilles to Lac Retaud distinguishable under its snowy blanket. If the heart desires it, the restaurant of Lac Retaud welcomes you to take advantage of a pleasant break. If you do not want to stop however, continue between the forest to re-join Col du Pillon and have a break at the restaurant with the same name. From Col du Pillon, take the (free) shuttle bus that will bring you to the village.

This easy route is around 1h30 and offers you an amazing view of the mountain of Diablerets. Do the route in the other direction for a sportier version. Take the shuttle bus to Col du Pillon, then go up the road to Isenau and go back down in the cable car, or prolong your walk with the route of des Crêtes to the village.
