Les Portes du Soleil is a major skisports destination in the northern French Alps (Chablais Alps) encompassing thirteen resorts between Mont Blanc in France and Lake Geneva in Switzerland. With more than 650 km of marked pistes and about 200 lifts in total, spread over 14 valleys and about 400 square miles (1036 square km) Portes du Soleil ranks among the two largest ski areas in the world (the other being Les Trois Vallees). Almost all of the pistes are connected by lifts - only a few marginal towns can only be reached by the free bus services in the area. There are twelve resorts in the Portes du Soleil area, of which seven are French and five are Swiss.
Most of the resorts have grown around traditional valley villages - only Avoriaz and the very small Les Crosets and Torgon were purposely built during the mid-sixties. Morzine and Chatel are the largest of the traditional towns in the area. As a whole the skiing is relatively low in altitude compared to most French destinations. The highest skiing is just below 2.500 metres (7.500 feet) and the lowest app. 900 metres (2.700 feet). However, the area is heavily influenced by the microclimate between Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc, which generates very substantial snowfall between November and April making it possible to keep the area open to skiing typically from early December until mid to late April. Some of the lower stations close around April 1 or earlier depending on snow conditions though.
It is a Swiss town situated at an altitude of approximately 1050 metres, nestled at the base of the Dents du Midi and the Dents Blanches, at the end of the Vallée d’Illiez. It is a 150 years old village with a substantial role in developing the skiing tourism i Switzerland. It was also among the initiating towns when the Portes du Soleil skiarea was established in the late sixties. There are no pistes leading all the way down to Champery due in part to the fact that the mountainside above the town is heavily exposed to snow. The Champéry – Planachaux cable-car (125 passengers) and the new 6-seater chairlift in Grand-Paradis are easy and fast connections into the vast system though.
The resort of Chatel lies at 1200 meter and the highest point of skiing is about 2.200 metres, but many of the lower slopes are north facing and do retain the snow throughout the season.

Morzine is set high in the valley of the River Dranse at an altitude of 1000m in the Northern Alps. Situated between Lake Geneva and the Mont Blanc massif the area is steeped in history and tradition. Previously ruled over by the Dukes of Savoie it is now part of the Haute Savoie region of France.
Beautifully located, nestled up next to the slopes of Les Crosets, a hamlet of chalets on 1850m altitude.Les Crosets is a quiet resort. There are four or five bars to chose from, four or five high quality restaurants, a small supermarket, gift shops and two ski hire shops. There is also a spa and beauty treatment centre and a sports masseur.
1,5 km from the village center and 800 m from the ski lifts.
Baby lift just 5 minutes from the chalet and easy ski slopes for beginners.
Situated only 90 minutes from Geneva, Champéry offers postcard Swiss village charm with preserved architecture, a flourishing restaurant scene and direct access to Les Portes du Soleil - the world’s largest internationally ski domain with 194 ski lifts and 90 on-piste restaurants. One of Champéry’s key selling features is its easy access to Les Portes du Soleil’s incredible network of ski lifts, making Champéry a top ski and mountain bike destination. Regardless of the season, each day offers a new safari for skiers, hikers and mountain bike enthusiasts of all levels.
The village itself is also another attraction. The main street features beautifully kept wood chalets with tantalizing storefronts and eating establishments and the village is small enough to keep everything within walking distance. Overlooking Champéry are the 7 spectacular peaks of Les Dents du Midi which rival the Matterhorn and the Eiger in natural beauty. In recent years, an influx of young and dynamic chefs has made Champéry’s restaurant scene one of the best kept culinary secrets of the Alps.
This follows the path of 90 on-piste restaurants throughout Les Portes du Soleil which for years have been delighting discerning guests and food critics alike. A specially created Pass Gourmet guidebook highlights the best local specialties. Also centrally located is Champéry’s Palladium (National Ice Sports Centre) with on-site accommodation and meeting rooms, fitness centre, indoor pool, skating and curling rinks as well as outdoor pool, clay tennis and beach volleyball courts.
During the high-season, the Tourism Office organises diverse activities including guided hikes and walks, an award-winning Via Ferrata, and breakfast on a Swiss alpine farm with demonstrations of traditional cheese-making. Folkloric activities and festivals abound as do activities for children.
