Leysin, in the Vaudois Alps, is a Mecca for freestyle skiing in Switzerland. Its ski slopes are also popular with keen skiers of all levels.
The linked resorts of Leysin, Les Mosses and La Lécherette form a ski area of 100 km. With such a large area, there’s something for everyone: families, beginners or experts. With its easy access and attractive prices, the region of Leysin-Les Mosses-La Lécherette is the ideal destination for your winter holidays!
From the centre of Leysin, skiers can take the Aï chairlift or the Berneuse cable car up to the slopes. At an altitude of 2048, the Berneuse is known for its revolving restaurant, Le Kuklos. But in winter, it’s mostly its south-facing slopes that attract skiers looking for sunshine and thrills. While keen skiers slalom down to the resort or the snowpark – at the bottom of the slope – children have their first skiing lessons on teaching slopes, at la Vallée Blanche for example.
Popular with snowboarders and freestylers, the snowpark is constantly changing its layout and has the only half-pipe in the Vaudois Alps.
