Les Diablerets is a village and ski resort located in the municipality of Ormont-Dessus in the canton of Vaud, Switzerland.

The village lies at an altitude of 1,160 metres on the north side of the massif of the Diablerets in the Swiss Alps. It can be accessed by train (Chemin de fer Aigle-Sepey-Diablerets) or by road from Aigle. The Col du Pillon (1,546 m) on the east give access to the Bernese Oberland region and is the Glacier 3000 cable car lowest station.

The resort has a ski school, hotels and a small town centre. Tourists staying in Les Diablerets have the option to ski in the Scex Rouge area, the northeastern valley of Isenau or the southwestern valley of Meilleret. From Meilleret they can ski down the 13-kilometre (8 mi) run to the village.
