Explore the ski area between the resorts of Champéry and Les Crosets and admire the view of the Dents-du-Midi, the Massif du Ruan and the Dents Blanches, without forgetting to stop off at one of the mountain restaurants and bars.

The start of the snowshoe trails is at the top of the Croix-de-Culet cable car (walk between the restaurant building and left of the arrival of the Planachaux chairlift to reach the pink Start flag).

From the Croix de Culet, walk downhill towards Planachaux, then turn right across the ski slopes (beware of skiers).
When you reach the restaurant “Refuge du Chaudron”, go along the reservoir (lake at the place called “Sur le Joueur”). Stay on the trail on the right (follow the number 11).

The trail finishes in Chaupalin. Enjoy an invigorating stop at the Buvette “Chez Yoyo et Jiby” with a splendid panorama of the Dents du Midi (3257m), the Ruan massif (3220m) and the Dents Blanches (2760m). You overlook the Crosets valley and its resort.

Take the same way to return to the Croix-de-Culet.
