For snowboarders, there is a terrain park and a half pipe. The closest airport is at Geneva but the transfer time is 1. This typical Swiss mountain village in the heart of the immense French-Swiss recreational area called Les Portes du Soleil is the perfect home-away-from-home from which to explore the surrounding regions.
Here, sports enthusiasts enjoy an endless range of activities, while leisure-seekers can just rest and soak up the cosy atmosphere. Everything started with the opening of the luxurious Hotel Dent-du-Midi in With ski lifts and over km of ski slopes, this is the largest international ski area in the world. Numerous other activities include cross-country skiing, winter walks, paragliding or snowshoeing.
Night owls who still have the energy after a hard day on the slopes can prolong the fun into the wee hours at the many local bars and discos. The Portes du Soleil recreational area keeps 24 chairlifts open for the summer, giving access to over km of paths just waiting to be explored on foot, on horseback or by mountain bike.
The Dents du Midi and the Dents Blanches mountain ridges also offer numerous well-marked walks and hikes with breath-taking views at every turn. Accrobranche, a new adventure course in the treetops, is our most recent addition to an already diverse panoply of kap activities which include fishing, hiking, horseback riding, Via Ferrata, canyoning, ipste paragliding.
To round out your visit, a trip to our open-air museum, breakfast on a working farm or a leisurely stroll down our beautifully traditional village main street adds a memorable touch of local culture.
And nobody throws a party like the Superpark.
Summer events such as livestock fairs, our popular handicraft market and the colourful August 1st national holiday celebrations showcase local traditions.
Summer also saw the introduction of a hilarious new addition to the social calendar, the much-appreciated Maxi-Rires comedy festival.
Champery Piste Map
Have been to Champery over the last six years or so and have never skied such a large linked resort. You can spend most of a week there and hardly ski the same run twice. The village itself is quiet, even in high season; it feels fairly empty and you don’t see many youngsters about ’till gone midnight. That chakpery, there is plenty of places to get a few beers!
You can get two types of lift passes, Swiss side or the Porters de Soleil pass which covers the French resorts which are a little higher with the snow being better if the season is not very snowy. All in all, if you like skiing more than nightlife this is a great place to ski, and if you get the train from Genova, like we do, it follows lake Carman then takes you up the mountains.
The scenery is beautiful; no better way to start a ski break.
