The Mountain Institute


LAS Alpine InstituteThe LAS Alpine Institute brings adventure and mountain science to students at the Leysin American School in Switzerland. For a few years of their lives, students at the LAS live in one of the most spectacular places on earth. The Alpine Institute connects them with their local mountain environment. 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.
