Back in 1947 the first ski lift was installed in Chatel which was the start of what was to become one of the most exciting places to visit for a winter holiday. Huge investment in new lifts, pistes, resturants, bars and activities over the following 65 years has seen Chatel grow into a very special winter ski resort and one of the best ski areas in the world. Whilst the ski resort has continued to develop every effort has been made to protect and respect all local traditions and cultures to ensure Chatel also remains a traditional Savoyard farming village and this is just one of the reasons it is such a special place.

Situated right in the heart of the Portes Du Soleil in the Northern Alps between Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc, the Chatel ski area offers a great variety of skiing and snowboarding and is surrounded by other French and Swiss ski resorts that make up the Portes Du Soleil.  This is one of the largest interlinked ski areas in the world with a great snow record. From mid November to the end of April an average of 8 metres of powder falls every year. Check out the ski area and piste maps in more detail....

Around Chatel you will find a large selection of great restaurants offering a variety of menus styles, a wide range of bars with live music throughout the season and also many sports shops selling all the equipment you will need for your holiday plus perfect gifts to take back home. Chatel also now has a superb indoor and outdoor swimming pool, spa and fitness centre open all year round.
