Full review

Chatel is an economical place to stay, although skiing is not cheap, Chatel provides great value for catered chalet accommodation etc. It is a beautiful alpine village with charm and character larger than you think. It has a good selection of bars with DJ's and music but if you are looking for the big party life, Chatel is not your place. Chatel has a different vibe, more about the skiing with its great runs for all levels. The excellent ski lift system linking the Portes du Soleil 650kms of pistes, will ensure you find something that suits you. Super Chatel area has a few button lifts but is an excellent area for beginner and low intermediate level. Following the new lifts connecting Super Chatel to Linga, there are plans to upgrade the lift system on the Super Chatel side. The Linga to Pre le Joux ski area is excellent and has a great lift infrastructure. Due to its snow making facilities, its Topography and micro climates, Chatel is always open from the beginning of December through to late April. Do not be fooled by altitude statements and having to be super high. After 1800m you lose the treeline which exposes you to wind and white outs!!! We love Chatel and cannot rate it high enough in comparison with many other major resorts.
