A change of scenery is guaranteed in the Pays d'Enhaut - a charming combination of wild nature and ski paradise. Action sports enthusiasts and winter walkers can enjoy their favourite pastimes surrounded by spectacular panoramic views. The Pays d'Enhaut is also home to the Château-d'OEx International Hot Air Balloon Week, during which hot air balloons and zeppelins compete in elegance and originality, adding a lively and unique touch to the region. The variety of the winter landscapes and activities around Château-d'OEx are utterly delightful. Discover the countryside from an unusual angle - from a hot air balloon or on a paragliding flight. The 250 km of slopes for skiers of all abilities can be accessed directly from the villages. Ski schools, snow kindergartens, cross-country trails, sledge runs and many more winter sports are perfect for families and sports enthusiasts alike. Nature lovers can try out the 60 km of marked snowshoe trails in the region, while the newly added "Nordic skiing in the Alpes Vaudoises" meeting point, on the Les Mosses-La Lécherette plateau, is the ideal starting point for a range of Nordic sports.
