Les Crosets, in the Val d'Illiez valley in the canton of Valais, is the highest point on the Swiss side of the Portes du Soleil (at an altitude of 1670 m a.s.l.). It offers easy and medium difficulty pistes and a snow park. Good access to the resorts Champoussin, Champéry and Avoriaz (France), as well as an illuminated slope are additional advantages of this place. The nearest airport is in Geneva, and the valley itself is easily accessible from Swiss Highway 9.
