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.
Departure point at the top of the cable car: Leave the cable car building and take an immediate left down the path next to the Planachaux chairlift, towards the Chez Coquoz restaurant. At the first chalet, turn right to cross the ski slope, being aware of skiers arriving on your right. Take the snowshoe trail to the Léchereuse drag lift. Continue on the path past the ski lift, then take the fork to your left when you get to the reservoir lake. Ahead, you will see the Ripaille ski slopes as well as 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.
