Situated just 90 minute drive from Geneve past the Swiss end of the lake.
Champery is part of the extensive ski area known as the Portes Du Soleil the largest ski domain in the world linking into the French ski resorts of Chatel, Morzine and Les Gets to name a few. It has 194 ski lifts with a numerous number of ski runs to suit all abilities!
This is a personal favorite as I competed in the Youth Olympics here. The area is so extensive and some pistes are outstanding for training and racing.
Champery hosts the Welsh Alpine Championships in January each year and is a fantastic event, one not to be missed!
In the summer it is also a Mountain Biking Mecca holding the notorious Passport Du Soleil where athletes have to race around every resort with over 80km of cycling and get back to the starting point before the lifts close. I can highly recommend this to any ski athlete that uses mountain biking as a cross over sport!
