From the panoramic viewpoint at the tippy top of Champéry’s cable car, you'll skirt the ski slopes, stopping for refreshments at picturesque alpine restaurants along the way.

Start your hike at the top of the Croix de Culet cable car, walking downhill between the cable car building and the Planachaux chairlift arrival station to find the pink Start flag.

Continue downhill, following the snowshoe signs to turn right and cross the Planachaux ski slope (Beware of skiers!). When you reach the restaurant Refuge du Chaudron, continue straight on in front of the restaurant and the drag lift arrival station. The trail will head downhill and curve around the left edge of the reservoir.

At the reservoir, take the fork to your left, heading downhill. In the distance, you will see the twin drag lifts between the Ripaille ski slopes and the legendary Chavanette ski slope, otherwise known as the Swiss Wall. Continue down to the Le Toupin restaurant or further on to the Les Marmottes restaurant, partway up the Ripaille slope.

Take the same path to return to the cable car.
