1854 Leysin, Switzerland
Snowshoe for a View Atop the WorldLooking for a great little ski town in the Swiss Alps?
Head to Leysin, located in the Bernese Alps. Take a cogwheel train 1600 meters up from Aigle, and you are there.
You can walk everywhere in the town, from the hotel to the chair lift to the pubs. It’s small enough for everyone to treat you like a local, once you have been there for a few days—yet big enough to get your own space and privacy.
Ski, snowboard—or, for a quiet, peaceful workout on your own, rent some snowshoes and go off-piste, taking in the backcountry.
