Ski Area

Map of the village

Here is a useful interactive map of the village. Le Yeti 6 chalet is up towards the left hand side of the map at 186 chemin de Barbossine in Petit Chatel

Chatel webcams and weather

It is always useful to look at the webcams to see what is going on in the village and up the mountains before you travel


A summertime must-do, the Fantasticable whizzes you across the valley at high speed. Brilliant.

Water activities in Chatel

So much to do, so little time, a must do is white water rafting on the River Dranse.

Intersport in Petit Chatel

I recommend this ski shop in Petit Chatel as there is free parking right outside. If you are renting skis and boots, it is cheaper to book in advance online. Pascal is really friendly.

Aquatic Centre

Try the brilliant new indoor / outdoor pool in the centre of Chatel! A fantastic new amenity in the village for those days when you don’t feel like skiing or walking

The two piste maps

Here are the two piste maps, the first to the Chatel slopes, the second to all 650kms of the Portes du Soleil, the largest ski area in the world!
