Champéry in short

  • Good valley downhill skiing, even in poor snow
  • Almost the entire village is a pedestrian zone
  • The best winter hiking spot of the Portes du Soleil

Champéry lies at the foot of Dents-du-Midi, one of Switzerland’s most beautiful mountain ranges. It combines old charm with modern luxury. In the village you will find beautifully renovated hotels, modern lift systems, shops and different places of entertainment. Champéry is located in the gigantic ski area Les Portes du Soleil, which has access to no fewer than 650 kilometres of ski slopes. From the centre, the gondola lift will take you to the smaller area of La Planachaux; then through Les Crosets you will reach this enormous ski area.
