Portes du Soleil

The Portes du Soleil is one of the biggest Skiing areas in the world. It is also the „door“ of the French alps to the Swiss alps – or vice versa. The famous „Pas de Chavanette“ or the slope known as the Swiss Wall are on the grounds of Champéry, in other words on the Swiss part of the Portes du Soleil. This slope, 1 kilometre long and featuring 391 metres of height, is believed to be one of the most difficult slopes open to the public in the world. A very special alpine world around Les Dents du Midi, which has its own PanoramaKnife collection.
