A traditional village in the largest international linked ski area in the world
Chatel itself has an extensive ski area with runs to suit skiers and boarders of all abilities. The whole village is served by a free ski-bus, so wherever you are, you are never more than a few minutes away from the ski-lift of your choice.
The resort is also part of the vast Portes du Soleil domain - the largest international linked ski area in the world with over 650 km of varied terrain spread across 8 French and 4 Swiss resorts. This gives skiers and boarders an almost endless choice of runs on their doorstep.
Chatel has two main ski areas – Super Chatel & Le Linga/Pre-La-Joux.
Super Chatel is ideal for beginners and intermediates, with its sweeping tree-lined blue runs. The Super-Chatel ski area links directly into Switzerland and the resorts of Torgon and Morgins.
Two minutes drive away from Super Chatel is Le Linga/Pre-La-Joux ski area. This area includes more challenging runs and links directly into the main Portes Du Soleil circuit, dropping down first into the high altitude Avoriaz ski domain.
The piste at Linga is open once a week for night skiing complete with floodlights and music. Night skiing is free to those holding a valid lift pass.
