Back to White-Peak
Looking for a budget ski holiday this year? Why not try Chatel, in the giant Portes du Soleil ski area of France and Switzerland.
The resort is close to Geneva Airport (great for budget flights with Easyjet), and is also one of the first resorts you reach when driving from Calais.
With the greatly improved pound-to-euro exchange rate (and assuming it doesn’t change too much during the winter), in-resort prices will be between a fifth and quarter cheaper than they were last winter.
What’s more, the Chatel tourist office is offering 10% off either a local-area Chatel lift pass (valid 3 days or more) or a Portes du Soleil lift pass (valid 5 days or more) if you book online before the 9th December 2012. Visit Chatel.com for more information.
We also have lots of budget apartments to rent in this ever popular resort – plenty of studios and 1-2 bedroom apartments which won’t break the bank! Follow this link to view our self catered apartments in Chatel.

I know it is mid June, but waking up to snow on the tops of the mountains in Chatel has got me thinking about winter already, and of course, snow!
Making snowmen is a popular way for children to entertain themselves during the winter months. It’s a great winter tradition. Two giant snowballs, some lumps of coal and a strategically (or comically) placed carrot – and that’s usually about it. Continue reading
Some great pictures from yesterday’s Critérium du Dauphiné 2012 stage which finished in Chatel.
We are currently re-developing our website and hope to re-launch at the end of August with our new portfolio of self catered ski accommodation in France and throughout Europe.
We have partnered up with one of Europe’s biggest suppliers of high quality self catered property, and we will be offering this to all the White-Peak guests.
As well as ski accommodation, we will also have a large range of self catered accommodation for summer holidays in France and beyond.
You will be able to check the live price availability and book online.
Watch this space….we think you’ll like it.
After a mild and sunny March, I was just about ready to hang up my skis and get my bike out for the summer. However, winter has returned with a vengeance - heavy snow on the mountain (even a light covering in the village of Chatel) and cold temperatures and more snow forecast for the rest of the weekend.
With the lifts staying open until the 22nd April, and the pistes (and off piste) empty, the next 8 days promise to offer fantastic skiing and boarding in the area. The Chatel tourist board are still reporting over 1 m 50 at top station and there is still 2 m at the top of the Portes du Soleil.
For those of us who live here – this is a little reward for all the hard work during the winter season. And once the lifts close, if it remains snowy I’ll just have to get my touring skis back out!
As the Easter holidays approach, it really doesn’t get any better than this for spring skiing. It is warm, but not too warm, the pistes are in great condition (still well over 2m at the top of the Portes du Soleil, and everyone is happy skiing on great spring snow under clear blue skies. To cap it all off, we may get another dump of snow at the end of the week. Happy days…
