From the panoramic viewpoint at the tippy top of Champéry’s cable car, along spectacular alpine mountainsides to the picturesque village below, this athletic itinerary has a little bit of everything.

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 top of 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 infamous Chavanette ski slope, otherwise known as the Swiss Wall. Continue down to the Le Toupin restaurant, then follow the signs to the bottom of the Léchereuse drag lift. From here, follow the Seumont River to the Chalet du Pont. Now on a wider path, pass under the Grand Paradis chairlift and take the Route des Parses to the crossroads with the Route de Sur Cou. From there, take off your snowshoes and follow the Chemin des Rochaz (on your right) back to the village.

This itinerary can be done in the reverse direction for a more strenuous challenge!
