Val-d’Illiez - Les Crosets - Champoussin



Val-d’Illiez
This charming and peaceful village, situated at 950m, is the ideal spot for a relaxing visit. Nestled at the foot of the majestic Dents du Midi Mountains and in the heart of the Val d’Illiez valley, this village is part of a commune that also includes the resort towns of Les Crosets and Champoussin.
Val d’Illiez is widely reputed for its thermal baths, which offer therapy for body and spirit in a spectacular natural setting…
Additionally, many other activities await you here all year round: walking trails through the mountains, all-terrain mountain biking, and the Via Ferrata for the not-so-faint-at-heart…
Annual highlights include, in summer, the yearly fête au village . This is an unforgettable moment of merrymaking local-style. In winter, the season’s festivities open with the annual Christmas market, which then cedes its place to the traditional Christmas crèche. Another high point of the year is without a doubt February’s Carnaval, replete with local colour including its children’s parade and Mardi Gras celebration.
Val-d’Illiez boasts both the rustic charm of a traditional alpine village, and the convenience of quick and easy access to all the modern sports and facilities of the Portes-du-Soleil resorts.

Les Crosets
This village, located at 1,668m, is the ideal jumping-off point for families, sports lovers and anyone who wants to explore the Portes du Soleil. In winter, the resort boasts excellent snow conditions and a quick-as-a-wink connection with France over the spectacular pointe des Mossettes lift (2,277m). The experienced instructors at the Swiss Ski School await beginning and advanced skiers and snowboarders alike for lessons and guiding. Freestylers can get their fill of thrills in the Snowpark which, according to those in the know, is one of the world’s best! The bravest among you might even like to have a go down Chavanette, otherwise known as the ‘Swiss Wall’, but be careful you don’t fall!
Lest you think otherwise, Les Crosets is not just about skiing. A multitude of other activities await our visitors. Winter activities might include snowshoeing on marked trails or a ride down the sledging run. Special events include nighttime sledging, Snowpark competitions and ski races. In summer, the snow melts and gives way to an infinite number of hiking and all-terrain biking trails, criss-crossing the alpine pastures and leading to rustic local eateries and rest-stops. Fishing enthusiasts will love the Lac Vert, also the setting of a charming animal park with animals from around the world. One summer highlight is the foire du bétail, an unforgettable event which showcases music, local artisans and traditions against a backdrop of local farmers conducting the very serious business of buying and selling their livestock. There are also all-terrain mountain biking competitions and, year round, you can always plan a day at the waterslides.

Champoussin
This Valaisan village, built in the architectural style typical of the Val d’Illiez, will enchant you with its rustic authenticity. The resort is situated at an altitude of 1,600m with the majestic Dents du Midi Mountains as a backdrop.
Summer and winter, Champoussin offers a multitude of activities for everyone: paragliding, sledging, snowshoeing, horseback riding, hiking. Not to mention a goat farm to visit with cheese making demonstrations and cheese tasting to follow, an alpine museum to explore… If all this is too much for you, you may simply want to have a quiet afternoon in the pool or sauna at the local fitness centre! At the end of the day, treat yourself to a special meal that showcases the regions specialties and local terroir.
The annual winter sledging race is a breath-taking event where competitors hurl themselves downhill on everything from antique hay sledges to sleek modern machines…
In summer, the fête du bois is a fun and educational festival where local artisans demonstrate all aspects of woodworking. The fête des jeux, or games festival, is an occasion for young and old alike to test themselves at different games and challenges.
