13. Croix de Culet - Pauvre Conche

13. Croix de Culet - Pauvre Conche
13. Croix de Culet - Pauvre Conche

Description

Starting from the Croix de Culet, accessible via the cable car, this circular hike is ideal for sporty snowshoers in search of sunshine and panoramic views of magnificent mountain ranges.

The snowshoe trails start at the top of the Croix-de-Culet cable car (look for the pink flag indicating the start).

Exit the cable car building and follow the path straight ahead, in the direction of Les Crosets. Following the pink trail marking signs, turn left onto trail number #13. Pass by Chez Coquoz restaurant and, at the Hotel Plein Ciel, turn left and follow the trail to the Grand Paradis chairlift arrival station. Follow the trail downhill under the chairlift, then head to the right to take the trail to the Lechereuse drag lift departure (this lift is closed for winter 23-24).

Continue along to the departure of the Pauvre Conche chairlift; on your left, you will see the restaurant Les Marmottes, the Ripaille peak, and the famous Chavanette black slope we call the 'Swiss Wall'. Turn right to cross under the chairlift line and head up the slope towards the Toupin Restaurant.

Continue uphill towards the reservoir lake and the Restaurant le Chaudron, then continue along the path until the Planachaux ski slope. Cross the ski slope (watch out for skiers) and turn left onto the steep trail that climbs back up to the Croix de Culet cable car.

Champéry - Croix de Culet Cable Car

Inaugurated in 1987, the iconic red and white Champéry cable car whisks you to a height of 1,962 metres in under 5 minutes.The cable car linking Champéry to the Croix de Culet was built in 1987 by the famous ropeway transport company Garaventa. The 2 cabins hold 125 people, with an hourly flow of 1,000 people. The cable car spans a distance of 899 vertical meters from the departure point at 1,037 m altitude to the arrival point at 1,936 m. At the top, pedestrians in search of tranquillity will be awestruck by the panoramic views from the Croix de Culet while skiers can access the vast Portes du Soleil ski slopes. In summer, mountain bikers can set off for a multitude of downhill and enduro trails and hikers equipped with the Multi Pass can take the cable car and all of the Portes du Soleil lifts for free. At the arrival point, and the jumping-off point for the ski slopes, you will find a restaurant, snack bar, restrooms, and panoramic views from a vast, sunny terrace. How to get here? If you are arriving by car, there is a large car park in front of the cable car. It is free in summer and costs CHF 5.- per day in winter. Overnight parking is not allowed in winter. The AOMC regional train arrives right at the departure station of the cable car ('Champéry' stop).
