Interested in this resort?
There are a variety of runs for all abilities here, although best catered for are beginners and intermediates. Excellent nursery slopes, both at village level and at the top of the gondola, as well as the wide, uncrowded pistes, certainly make this a great introduction to skiing, and the ski school here is first-rate. The number of runs for intermediates means it is also perfect for those wishing to improve their skills.
Very good for intermediate skiers.

Aprés-Ski at Leysin and Les Mosses
ice skating leysin
Sandwiched between the Suchet forest and the Tour d'Aï mountains, this semi-enclosed ice rink is a fantastic option for après-ski!
Curling is a fantastic choice for an après-ski activity and teaches players the value of teamwork. Given that your most of your group are unlikely to have tried curling before, it will give your group a chance to try their hand at something new too! Instructors can be arranged if required.

Broomball is great fun for groups!
Brooms replace hockey sticks, the puck is replaced by a ball and no skates are required.
climbing wall leysin

swimming pool leysin
Open for 11 months of the year, the half-Olympic size pool (25m) has 4 swimming lanes. With a water temperature of 28 degrees, the pool is the perfect place to relax.

The gentle slopes at the bottom of the village are perfect for sledding. This age-old activity has certainly lost none of its attraction and makes an ideal après-ski activity.
