Gryon is a pleasant little ski resort in the Alpes Vaudoises region of Switzerland, just to the east of lake Geneva. It's sometimes marketed alongside the neighbouring resort of Villars, but they are both completely separate resorts and villages. Gryon sits on a ledge above the valley at an altitude of 1110m, and is accessed by train from Bex down in the valley below.

Gryon has its own ski slopes above the village, with the Les Chaux area, and also has links to the pistes of nearby Villars.
