One of our team members will welcome you at the back of the cable car station (little rack train platform). Car access is tolerated through the slope on the right side of the building for unloading purposes. Put your luggage into the containers on wheels marked PLEIN CIEL. It will be transported by cableway in the late afternoon up to La Croix de Culet. From there, we will take care of luggage transport to Plein Ciel, around 6:00 pm at the hotel ski-room. Please keep your ski equipment with you, so as to be able to reach the hotel.

As all of these operations will be realized manually: we will not take care of any suitcases that are too heavy (+ 20 kg) and/or too large, little plastic bags and various loose objects.

After 4.00 pm

You will need to take your luggage with you in the cable car cabin. When you arrive at the top, you must leave them at the exit of the cable car station. We will take care of the transport to the hotel. Therefore, it is essential that you warn us if you will be arriving late.

After 5.00 pm

The hotel is no longer accessible until the next morning.

We advise you to plan your arrival at Champéry not later than 3:00 pm, taking into account the winter weather conditions and the fact that the roads may be congested on Saturdays. As a matter of fact, when you arrive too late, you will be forced to stay in the village, at your own expenses. Check out the weather before you go on
