Many great climbers from the 'golden era' of climbing were instructors including Dougal Haston who later took over running the school when Harlin died on The Eiger. Courses are still run in Leysin with many other international schools from particularly the UK and US making use of the area.

    At this time Club Vagabond was in it's heyday with great luminaries of this climbing scene such as Chris Bonnington, Mick Burke and Nick Estcourt frequenting the famous club on various occasions.

    The town is accessible by train from nearby Aigle, which is home to World-Cycling-Association (UCI) or road via Le Sepey. Although the region is famed for mountain sports, other less tasking sports are also well catered for such as cycling and toboggan.
