Champéry is great for intermediate skiers looking for a quiet time in a lovely place if you can live with the cost and the negatives. Access to Avoriaz is fairly easy - and there may be good snow in France when the Swiss side is suffering. Champéry is on the Swiss side of the Portes du Soleil region, with fairly quick links to Avoriaz in France, and to the valley between Avoriaz and Châtel.
Pros

Access to Portes du Soleil circuit

Quiet, relaxed - yet plenty to do off the slopes

Cons

Lift system is antiquated

Local slopes suffer from the sun

No runs back to the village

Not good for beginners

Getting there
