Skiing & Snowboarding: The seven resorts of Leysin, Villars, Gryon, Les Diablerets, Les Mosses, Rougemont and Chateau-d'Oex make up the spectacular skiing area of Alpes Vaudoise, the skipass covers all resorts and is even free to under 9s. With 74 lifts and 220km of downhill pistes (135 miles) this must be one of the 'prized areas' for skiers visiting Switzerland. The region is just 115km from Geneva and can be reached in nine hours or less on mainly motorways from Calais. The Bern-Lausanne-Geneva motorway goes right past the 'gateway town' of Aigle and from here you turn off to Leysin or to Villars via Ollon.
Leysin has 17 lifts and a snow park with a half pipe, and ski tours and snow-shoe treks offer skiers and snowboarders ideal opportunities for enjoyment. And there is also a snow sport school, a lit cross-country skiing trail and toboggan run. A round of the Snowboarding World Championships is held in Leysin each year.
250 kilometres of hiking trails, mountain tours and interesting bike tours offer plenty of exercise in the open countryside. Mountaineers find several challenges in the precipitous chalk rock-faces which resemble the Dolomites. The difficult via ferrata at the Tour d'Aï is for experienced mountaineers only.
