Full review

We went to Leysin for a long weekend of snowboarding in March. On our first day we have some crusty hard pack, but on the second day it snowed all day so we had a good foot of fresh snow, which made it much more fun. Also, we were there during the Nescafe half-pipe contest, and it was fun to watch the competitors doing tricks. Overall it's a pretty nice resort. One of the main perks is that most lifts are chair lifts. We've been to a couple other ski resorts in Switzerland and a lot of them have mostly drag lifts... which for me is a real, well... drag! So two thumbs up for that. One drawback of the resort is that there is a lot of congestion on the main lift, and to get to the north side of mountain, you need to take a series of lifts. We found the pistes to be more fun over there, but it took longer to get to - it wasn't super accessible. On the other hand, the town of Leysin is very accessible, being only a 30-45 minute drive to Lausanne. And once you are in town, you can do pretty much everything on foot, which is also nice. Nice place to check out.
