Leysin - skiresort
The Leysin ski fields with their 60km of pistes are suitable for all categories of skier and are especially popular with youngsters and families. At altitudes varying from 1300 to 2200m and with snow guaranteed by the permanent snow canons, Leysin is quite often host to important sporting events (Champs open, GiantX Tour,…).
From the village centre, Leysin’s ski fields are reached by taking either the Berneuse cable car or the Aï 4-man chairlift. The area’s many lifts, mostly chairs, are all built on the same south facing slopes so are very sunny.
Leysin's ski domain offers the complete package. Its comprehensive set-up means that everybody can enjoy and make the most out of their favourite sliding sport. Beginners can start out either at Plan-Praz (upper village) or at the Daille (bottom village) as well at the top of the Berneuse where each site is equipped with a mini ski-lift or tow. The Snowpark and the permanent ski cross piste at the foot of the Chaux de Mont, as well as the slalom course are as big a hit with amateurs as they are with the professionals.
For good skiers or simply for a family day out, try the direct link with the ski pistes of Les Mosses - La Lécherette for over 100km of ski heaven.
