Chatel is just a stones throw from the Swiss border, set between Lake Geneva and the Mont Blanc. It's a charming haut-savoyard village at 1200m and has remained true to its traditions. Located in the Northern French Alps and combined with the effects of Lake Garda, this produces a micro-climate, which ensures optimal snowfall throughout the winter. Nevertheless, to content with the weather's unpredictable nature and to guarantee snow in certain areas, Chatel has invested in artificial snow-making machines and today as 170 snow-makers.
