Between Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc, two regions have merged across the Franco-Swiss border to form a single region known as Portes du Soleil. The world's largest international ski area includes 12 charming ski resorts in France and Switzerland, among them Champéry. Easy access (115 km from Geneva Airport), a wide selection of good-quality accommodation and romantic ski restaurants make the area especially attractive. The Portes du Soleil ski area offers 650 skiable km, 206 ski lifts, 290 slopes in the 12 ski resorts. One "hands-free" ski pass is valid throughout the entire area. The Champéry-Planachaux cable car (125 persons) transports you to the slopes in less than 5 minutes

Champéry sits beneath the spectacular Dents du Midi on the Swiss side of the Portes du Soleil and certainly Champery offers some of the finest views in this region. The ski area is a vast 650km and a glance up from the cable car gives a fantastic view of both the Planachaux bowl and the infamous black run “The Wall” above it. This friendly and relaxed traditional town is an ideal destination for skiers who want to get away from the commercial side of this huge ski area and experience a true Swiss resort.

Champéry has a pretty good selection of cafes, restaurants and bars. as you would expect. A popular choice for après-ski drinks is Mitchell’s Pub and Restaurant where you can relax in front of the roaring fire or sometimes listen to live music they have there frequently. Bar de Guides is the haunt of the Ski Instructors and popular with the young, or for a more chic apres ski experience, C21 offers fine wines and gastromy tapas. Finally, the historical Café du Centre boasts an authentic Asian menu and even its own brewery – don’t miss a pint of Champéry Pale Ale before heading to The Crevasse nightclub to finish off the evening, that is of course unless the evening exploits finish you off!
