Project Description

Port du Soleil


The world’s oldest cross-border ski and MTB destination, the Portes du Soleil covers the neighbouring Alpine regions of French Chablais and Swiss Valais, encompassing two countries and 12 resorts. These include Avoriaz, Champéry, Les Gets and Morzine with one liftpass providing access to them all. Located between Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc, this huge ski area boasts 650 km of pistes and 209 lifts. Portes du Soleil, or ‘Gateway to the Sun’, enjoys an annual average snowfall of nearly eight metres, with the region a flurry of activity throughout the winter and the ski season wrapping up in late April. The area also has plenty to offer the summer months, with hundreds of hiking and biking trails set against the spectacular Alpine scenery. There are around 600km of marked trails in the area with varying degrees of technical skill required, as well as countless mapped road cycling itineraries to explore. In addition, holidaymakers can choose from a range of climbing, trekking and fishing excursions or an array of more transformative experiences, like horse-back rides in the mountains or taking to the skies over the Alps in helicopter. As the closest major ski area to Geneva airport, Portes du Soleil enjoys an edge over other Alpine regions, with a transfer time of just an hour to Les Gets.
