In summer, some 800 km of hiking trails and 600 km of mountain bike trails await outside your front door, with quaint alpine restaurants and sunny terraces at strategic intervals along the way. In winter, the snowy landscape is a study in stark contrasts, from the hushed mystery of the frozen back country to the invigorating hustle and bustle of 600 kilometres of state-of-the-art groomed ski slopes.
No matter the season, this is a place of exhilarating peaks and inspiring views, where the border between France and Switzerland has all but disappeared and your backyard stretches as far as the eye can see.
In a land with no boundaries the possibilities are infinite; activities, events, sports, restaurants, thermal baths and wellness centres, a national ice sports centre… At the risk of sounding cliché, there really IS something for everyone in the Région Dents du Midi!
1 international Ski area : Les PORTES Du Soleil
The Portes du Soleil area is composed of 12 resorts spread across the Franco-Swiss border, making it the biggest international ski area in the world. The perfect winter playground, it is also very popular amongst mountain bikers, hikers and trail runners!
With a single pass you can directly access the French resorts of Avoriaz and Chatel riding up the chairlifts from the Swiss side, whether on skis, on foot or by bike. The best of both countries right within your reach!
