This website’s content is being migrated to a constellation of new Alpine Institute websites that are currently only visible to LAS staff and students: Alpine Institute Hub, Outings, International Award, LETS Observe, Globe Day, Edge, Citizen Science in Learning & Education, and our YouTube channel.

In due time the current website will close.

For a few years of their lives, students at the Leysin American School live in one of the most spectacular places on earth. Our goal at the LAS Alpine Institute is for them to connect with their local mountain environment as deeply as possible.

As a center for mountain science, sport, environment, and culture, the Institute works with teachers across the curriculum to build a deep understanding and passion for the mountain landscape and culture of our Swiss home.

Diablerets Glacier Ascent 2017

Last weekend, the LAS Alpine Club struck out for our annual ascent of Les Diablerets, at 3,210m, the highest peak in the Canton of Vaud–which is our home canton.
