Mountain info

Châtel ski resort has a fantastic snow record due to its proximity to Mont Blanc and offers 72 ski slopes, stretching over a total length of 130km. Châtel has two separate ski areas; Super-Châtel and Pre-La-Joux (which is just a short drive away or you can take the free bus). Super-Châtel is perfect for beginners as it offers gentle slopes and it rarely becomes busy due to it not being linked to any other areas. Here you can also find the snow park; a play area for beginner to expert freestylers with rails, kickers and slide boxes. There is also a fun zone on Chalet Neuf where you can time how fast you go thanks to an electronic ski display. The Pre-La-Joux ski area offers a variety of red and blue runs and off-piste skiing, and also links directly with Portes du Soleil allowing you to go further afield and explore resorts including Avoriaz, Morzine and Les Gets on the French side and Les Crosets, Val d’Illiez and Morgins on the Swiss side.
