A natural site with endless possibilities in the heart of the Alps

The area has resorts as prestigious as Avoriaz or Morzine, as well as others that are less popular but just as pleasant, such as Châtel, Les Gets, Saint-Jean-d'Aulps, La Chapelle-d'Abondance, Abondance, and Montriond. The Portes du Soleil area benefits from abundant snow cover from mid-November until April. Spread out between 900 and 2,460 m above sea level, the 286 km of slopes for all levels will delight amateurs! Winter also gives you the opportunity to try your hand at skijoring, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, or sledding. For something totally different, treat yourself to a yoga session facing Mont Blanc or an escape room in Champéry!

Spring and summer are an opportunity to discover the Mont-Blanc massif on foot, by mountain bike, or on horseback. From family trails to the legendary GR5, which crosses the Alps from north to south, explore the mountains at your own pace. Let yourself be soothed by the song of the birds, the unique charms of the special mountain flora, or the colours of a sunset on the surrounding peaks. Are you hiking with your family? Take advantage of the 26 ski lifts that walkers can enjoy, sources of great delight for the little ones!

The Portes du Soleil area also offers many ideas for cultural visits or leisure activities. Museums, swimming pools, mini-golf courses, ice rinks, climbing walls, not to mention the unmissable tourist trains, such as the Dents du Midi: all these can add colour and excitement to your holidays or your daily life as you see fit.
