Chatel Ski Resort Guide
Snowboarding in Chatel
Avoriaz is the snow boarders Mecca in the Portes du Soleil ski area, but Chatel is not a bad place to learn. The Terrain park at Chatel is better suited to beginners and intermediates rather than experts. Many of the lifts around the Super Chatel area are drag lifts so beware! For some of the best boarding in the area head for the Linga sector which offers good varied slopes and some excellent off piste runs. Flood lit runs are open every Thursdays on the Stade de Slalom run which is always popular with both boarders and skiers.
Après ski in Chatel
Chatel certainly won’t disappoint even the most hardened of party animal, but much of the evening entertainment centres around the resorts many bars. The Tunnel bar is very popular with Brits; it has a DJ or live music every night. The Avalanche is a British style bar with internet and is popular when the slopes start to empty, so to is the French styled bar The Godille located at Super Chatel and gets very lively as people head home at the end of the day.
Activities off the slopes in Chatel
The off slope activities are limited in Chalet, however the tourist office arrange daily activities and the walk along the river is very pleasant. Morzine would be a better choice for non skiers.
