History
Glacier 3000 In 1714, a massive 100 metre wide piece of the huge mountain became detached and crashed down the Alp Derborence side, smashing fifty five chalets and burying fourteen people under the rubble. The locals were convinced that the devil (diable) was living within the mountain and re-named it to “Les Diablerets”, literally : the abode of the devils. ... Read MoreEvery year, when they heard the noise of smaller rocks echoing large CRACKS as they bounced and smashed all the way down the mountain, the local people living in the valleys then believed the demons were playing skittles. A large pointy peak at Les Diablerets was even named “Quille du Diable”, literally: the Devil's skittle. It was later officially renamed to Tour St Martin, (“St Martins Tower”) but even to this day, it is still known and called “Quille du Diable” by local people.
