Châtel is one of just a few French ski resorts that have access to a large ski domain while being less than 90 minutes from Geneva Airport.
This authentic, family-friendly resort is part of the sprawling Les Portes du Soleil ski domain which boasts 650km of groomed pistes and encompasses 12 resorts between France and Switzerland.
There are two main ski areas, Super-Châtel and Linga, and the 84 local slopes are an intermediate’s dream as 66% of them are blue or red. For advanced skiers, there are six black pistes in the local area and some steeper red runs in the Linga area. Beginners are not forgotten either and there is a good selection of nursery slopes close to the village centre as well as several ski schools.
