Visitor Reviews of Leysin
Family of 4 from Switzerland writes:
Just returned from a week of ski holiday in Leysin, from Dec 28 to Jan 4, this is our first time in Leysin, but we have being skiing across the other side of the valley in Villars for many years.
Compared with Villars, Leysin seem to attract fewer skiers, which is fine with us; less crowded at the lift chair waiting lines.
In general, the ski area is okay. However, the cable car access is not very user friendly. You need to climb two levels of stairs to get to the cable car; a pain in the neck when you have the ski boots on.
For the slope, in general, is quite okay when there is snow. We are fortunate because most slope are not open until Dec 28 2013 due to lack of snow.
