Chavanette – The Swiss Wall

Champéry · Les Crosets

Ranked in the top 10 of the world’s toughest ski runs, Chavanette boasts a formidable 37° slope with an overall 76% declivity, making for a vertiginous drop and inspiring its nickname - the Swiss Wall.

Beginners beware! Some skiers may choose to take the ski lift down after the obligatory photo souvenir at the top. The 90° declivity at the summit is too steep for the snow grooming machines so the mogul field at the top regularly attains 2 metres in height, the size of a Volkswagen Beetle!

The run starts on the Swiss-French border, then plunges down the Swiss side of the mountain towards Les Crosets.
