As you set off from Champéry’s cable car station, you’ll leave this charming village behind to tackle the little-known climb of the Col de Champoussin. The first kilometre will give your calf muscles a workout with an average gradient of 10.5%. After that, you’ll continue on a gentler slope with gradients varying between 6% and 8%. In the middle of your climb, a short gravel section will spice up your tour as the view grows ever more splendid with every passing kilometre. Once at the summit, marvel at the Dents du Midi mountain range from their best angle.
