The resort is very nice. There was good snow, some areas a little icy but im a boarder so love the powder but on some slopes full of the fluffy stuff. depends on the run suppose. Good access to all runs and the area Portes du Soleil so lots of slopes to choose from. The lifts are generally in good working order and queues are correspondingly small - especially given all those pistes. There is a great selection of restaurants, like any resort there are good and bad - I recommend le Coquoz for a friendly welcome. Overall a resort with plenty going for it, best for intermediate or less skiers, as there is not too much for the advanced skier.

Took four total beginners with me. Big mistake totally unsuitable for the first time skier. No nursery slopes at top of cable car, have to walk down a steep slope with skis for 200 metres and walk back up a huge hill until you are good enough to ski down. Otherwise for the intermediate/advanced its awesome, links with Avoriaz are great and the skiing over the mountain is awesome, off piste powder was a pure delight and we never even scratched the surface of the Portes Soleil in a week. Quite nice turn left for France or right for Switzerland dont forget the Euros...

I live near Nyon, in Switzerland, about 1 hour's drive from Champery. Champery is one of my preferred resorts in the region - with access to the Portes du Soleil it gives some of the most extensive skiing available, the lifts are generally in good working order and queues are correspondingly small - especially given all those pistes!. There is a great selection of restaurants, like any resort there are good and bad - I recommend le Coquoz for a friendly welcome. Overall a resort with plenty going for it, best for intermediate or less skiers, as there is not too much for the advanced skier.

Been staying with family of four for last eight seasons. Champery is a charming traditional resort with a welcoming small community. A good selection of cosy places to eat along the long winding solitary road in the resort. Mitchells is a lively modern bar and the bar des guides offers a truly swiss atmosphere, rubbing shoulders with your ski instructor. Generally though it is a quiet family orientated village on the edge of the vast Port de Soleil. Maybe its a secret best kept

Quiet village with excellent access to the larger Portes du Soleil region. 1 Gondola from the village. Can not ski to the village but can ski to a bus terminal and a 5 minute ride. New sports center is a good addition. Lower elevation can make early season skiing questionable. Village is in a valley so not a lot of sunlight. Easy access from Geneva.
