It's true the main mountain in Chatel is a nightmare for boarders with loads of drag lifts if you want to head to the better slopes in Swizterland, but there are a number of good long off-piste runs if your prepared to endure the drags. All the best terrain is futher along the road in Pre la joux and linga which is acesed by the free ski bus going every ten mins, at both places there a good number of reds and blues and on powder days you cant beat Happy valley with various off-piste areas with natural jumps hits and various sized *** offs. Chatel is good location if you want to explore the Portes du Soleil.
