Leysin is great! I go back at least once a year. Nice atmosphere, sunny slopes, easy access, fun nightlife, interesting people. Could use another lift or two - especially on the west side near the old Les Chamois building.

Built in two main sectors on quite a steep hillside, Leysin has the reputation of being one of the sunniest spots in the Alps, which means the snow is typically better earlier in the season – especially with south facing slopes. The steepest terrain, on and off piste, is served by the Berneuse gondola. Here one of the resort’s three blacks runs, descends the first two-thirds of a top to bottom descent over the resort’s full 1000m vertical beneath the gondola. The high black served by the Chaux de Mont chair around the snowpark is also fun. The lift pass covers neighbouring resorts including the glacier skiing at Diablerets and those staying four days or longer a
