Châtel

Ski holidays in Châtel take place in a charming village located right on the French-Swiss border. It is a traditional, picturesque and atmospheric French mountain village and, even though skiing in Châtel has become one of the most popular ski holidays in France, it has retained its authentic character. The village is well known for its archaic architecture with lots of old wooden chalets and historic churches. Despite being surrounded by the fragile and historic buildings, a Châtel ski holiday is renowned by holiday-goers for its lively atmosphere and large skiing area.

Skiing in Châtel

Châtel ski holidays offer over 83km of ski slopes which cater mainly to beginner and intermediate skiers and snowboarders. It is, however, a part of the vast Les Portes du Soleil ski area, and with an upgraded lift pass you can have access to over 650km of ski slopes as well as skiing in Châtel. Les Portes du Soliel is also home to other famous French resorts including Avoriaz, Morzine and Les Gets. With the upgraded pass it is even possible to ski all the way into Switzerland.
