Leysin Ski Resort Switzerland

Leysin ski resort is a popular snow holiday location in canton Vaud, Switzerland. Leysin combines with Les Mosses - La Lécherette to form an extensive ski region accessible by train from nearby Montreux via Aigle.

The ski resort has a respectable skiable vertical of 855m & over 100km of piste trails to explore. The terrain is perfect for beginners & intermediates with only a tiny trail rated advanced. The Leysin ski sector is connected to the Les Mosses - La Lécherette sector by a free shuttle bus. Despite being situated in an incredible mountain landscape, advanced, expert & off-piste powder hunters should probably explore the gnarly freeride routes at nearby Glacier 3000, or head to the opposite side of the Rhone valley & seek out the pleasures of Portes du Soleil!

Where is Leysin Switzerland?

The Leysin ski resort is located above the village of the same name, less than 30min by train from the Rhone valley town of Aigle. The gateway airport is Geneva (GVA), 122km (1½hr) west of the resort by road via a circuitous route around Lac Leman (Lake Geneva) and through Montreux.

The recommended mode of travel to the ski resort is by train. From the Geneva airport, direct trains to Aigle (direction Brig) leave every hour through the day and take 1⅓hr. If staying in Montreux prior to skiing, Aigle is only a 10min train ride from the city. From Aigle, regional trains depart regularly from the ‘outside platforms’ to trundle up the main street to Leysin - a truly bizarre sight! Depending on where one is staying in Leysin, either of two railway stations can be utilised to access the town - Leysin Feydey or Versmont. Both are close to the centre of the village.

Leysin Accommodation

The village of Leysin is spread across 3km of mountainside below the ski resort. A multitude of 3-star hotels are prevalent in the village, many close to ski lift bases.

If simply considering Leysin as a day trip destination by train, the next best alternative to staying in Leysin itself would be to base oneself in Montreux. Glam it up & check out the prices in one of the Grand Hotels!
