Chatel ski resort is a traditional French village that has enlarged to become a very popular ski destination, the resort and ski area suits families who enjoy the blue runs and the ability to gain access to the Portes du Soleil ski region easily. The village/town retains much of it's original character whilst also offering a good range of bars and restaurants. Chatel is a traditional Savoyard village with a lovely feel of chalet style buildings keeping the natural ambience. Chatel is based in the massive Portes Du Soleil ski area, the world’s biggest lift linked ski area.

The skiing is split between 2 main areas. The first is Super-Châtel Barbossine, which provides access to Morgins and Torgon in Switzerland. The second area is Linga Pre-la-Joux and, via a telecabine, will take you towards Avoriaz. This vast ski area provides 650km of pistes. Snow cover is generally good due to the high altitude of some of the lifts. The longest piste in Chantel itself is 6km.

The main beginner area is at the top of the Gondola with a large bowl area providing gentle slopes. There are lots of runs in both directions for the intermediate skiers and the best area for the expert skiers is towards the Linga side. The scenery is breathtaking with wide slopes, tree lined runs and mountain peaks in the background.

In terms of snowboarding there is plenty to do, with a snow park in Chatel itself, and a further good snowboarding area in Avoriaz.

For those interested in the apres ski, Chatel will not disappoint. With numerous lively all night bars there is a different spot available for every night of the week. There is a good variety of restaurants with those serving traditional Abondance cheese dishes to waffles and crepes. This is a great choice for those who enjoy the off slope activities as much as enjoying the skiing!
