Situated at 1263m of altitude, Leysin’s ski resort takes advantage of an exceptional situation.
Its skiable domain, its Tobogganing Park, its panoramic revolving restaurant “Le Kuklos” and its international ski schools are the main characteristics. Leysin’s skiing area (along with Les Mosses pass and La Lécherette) counts 100km of pistes (from 1300m to 2048m of altitude) served by fast installations.
