There’s local skiing on the slopes around the villages of Champex-Lac and La Fouly.
La Fouly has 20km of slopes and four lifts, with a winter sports area ranging from 1.600-2,200m. Champex, at 2000m altitude, is nicknamed "Little Canada" and has very good snow conditions. It has four lifts and 25km of pistes.
A little further afield, the Le Châble cable car takes you directly to the popular resort of Verbier, where 80 lifts will give you access to over 400km of pistes. All these resorts offer paragliding, ice climbing and many other snow sports.
If you fancy something a little different, marked snowshoe trails start from the village. Ski-touring and cross-country skiing are also popular - tourist offices in Orsières and Champex-Lac will be able to advise you and provide trail maps.
