With more than 80km of its own pistes, Châtel ski holidays take place in the vast Portes du Soleil ski area which has a total 650km of pistes. With a lift pass for skiing in Châtel, you have access to the Massif du Linga/Pré-la-Joux, the Massif du Super-Châtel and the Swiss villages of Torgon and Morgins.
For most on a Châtel ski holiday, the ski areas available are sufficient enough to head out and have a fantastic ski holiday. However, we advise advanced skiers skiing in Châtel to extend their pass to include the Portes du Soleil area. This allows you to make longer trips and visit the famous resort of Avoriaz. Although skiing in Châtel is more viable for less advanced skiers and snowboarders, the Portes du Soleil still has a number of fun slopes available for those with less experience.
Another perk about using these lift passes when skiing in Châtel is that they can be ‘self-serviced’ as the pass can be scanned automatically at the ski lift. Unfortunately you cannot extend your Châtel lift pass to include Les Portes du Soleil once at the location.
