News – 2015/16

Over the hill in Champéry, two hotels were renovated and re-opened as Champéry’s first 4-stars. Le White (used to be du Parc) has a modern chic style while the National Resort & Spa retains a more Alpine feel.

Summary

Morgins is a fairly scattered but attractive village, between Châtel and Champéry on the Swiss side of the vast Portes du Soleil ski area. The village is a quiet family-friendly place, with two hotels and some chalets and a central beginner area. Two chairlifts start on either side of the valley, heading in opposite directions around the circuit with a short walk in between. The slopes back to the resort suit intermediates best, including a delightfully quiet, away-from-the-lifts blue run from the top of La Foilleuse above Champoussin. The sunny, narrow blues down from Châtel may prove more difficult for timid skiers.
