The village looks like a scene from a chocolate box. It is full of traditional Swiss chalets and snowy winding streets.
Champéry is definitely worth discovering. The backdrop is soaring Dents du Midi and Dents Blanches Mountains.
Magnificent views greet skiers that come to the nearby Portes du Soleil ski area. It’s just a five-minute cable car ride from Champéry. The Portes du Soleil is popular as the most expansive ski area in the world. It spans the Switzerland/France border and brings together 12 resorts, including Champéry.
Champéry itself is not the best place for beginners. However, the nearby Portes du Soleil provides scores of slopes for beginners. 51% of its runs are blue. Intermediates do well both within Champéry and the larger ski area. Intermediates enjoy runs to Grand Paradis, Les Crosets and Champoussin. They have the run of 40% of the trails in the whole Portes du Soleil region. For experts, a favorite challenge is the famous Pas de Chavanette (the Swiss Wall), a steep, long, and demanding run in the midst of spectacular scenery.
