Did someone say paradise? Yes, 'Grand Paradis', an appropriate name for the idyllic setting of the cross-country ski trail on the outskirts of Champéry. Others, given the bracing wintertime temperatures of Grand Paradis, say that it is closer to Canada's Great White North!
Champéry’s cross-country ski track is located just 2 kilometres past the village, and is easily accessible by car or by free shuttle-bus. The 5 kilometre circuit in Grand-Paradis offers classic or skating tracks and approximately 100 metres of altitude difference.
Grand Paradis is arguably a place like none other, a magical winter microclimate where the snow crunches underfoot and everything from the forest to the fenceposts to the rocks along the river sports a spiky winter coat of sparkling frost crystals.
Just minutes from the centre of Champéry (free parking in Gd. Paradis or shuttle bus from the village), the cross-country trail is perfect for beginners and experts alike.
