C

aux, below the pistes at Rochers de Naye and Dent de Jaman, has wonderful views over Lake Geneva and is dominated by the imposing former Caux-Palace Hotel, reputedly the inspiration for the castle in Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and which, during World War II, housed civilian refugees, interned escaped Allied prisoners of war and finally 1,600 Jews from the Kasztner train from Budapest. The resort was also home to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle for a time. The ski runs are serviced by a combination of the cog railway and surface lifts, with a good range of freeriding opportunities.
