Portes du Soleil Ski Resort Guide & Piste Map
Portes du Soleil Resort Description
Les Portes du Soleil is a large region of the Alps (Chablais Alps) encompassing thirteen resorts between Mont Blanc in France and Lake Geneva in Switzerland, popular for skiing, snowboarding and other winter sports. The region offers 650 km of marked pistes and about 201 lifts in total, spread over 14 valleys and about 400 square miles (1036 square km).
As with many other Alpine ski resorts, the lower slopes of the Portes du Soleil have their snow pack supplemented by snow-making canons to extend the skiable season by keeping the lower slopes open during the warmer months.
