Les Diablerets

A week in the Swiss Alps village of Les Diablerets lecturing at the Saas-Fee winter school on protoplanetary disks and planet formation. The view from the conference center had a high mountain quality not often seen from inhabited places in the Rockies, and certainly not from locations accessible by train!

This being the Alps, a cable car offers a speedy (if pricey) ascent up to 3000m, all year round! The main attraction is skiing on the glacier – and in summer no doubt great hiking – but the view of the high peaks is itself worth the trip.
