It stretches from the French town of Les Gets, to the Swiss winter sports village of Champéry.

Portes du Soleil is also so popular due to all the facilities here being very modern. Consider, for example, the new ski lifts that have recently been installed here. Thanks to the addition of all of these extra ski lifts, you don't have to worry about having to wait too long.
