Night skiing and other special features in Châtel
In the Portes du Soleil ski area, you have the opportunity to enjoy night skiing in three resorts. Two of these ski resorts are in Switzerland, one in France. Every Thursday, the red piste in the Linga stadium, located on the outskirts of Châtel, becomes a floodlit piste. With music, you can thus extend your day on skis on the Linga slope until 9:30 pm. A ski bus takes you directly to the Linga valley station. All those who don't want to spend the whole day on the slopes can enjoy ice skating, snowshoeing or ice fishing. New trends that are particularly popular include a ride on the mini snow kart "Yooner" or on a bodyboard. Those with a culinary taste can enjoy a typical French cheese at the local cheese dairy or watch it being produced. Of course, you can also enjoy a delicious cheese fondue in the local restaurants.
In the Super-Châtel ski area you will also find the Smoothpark, a snow park that offers beginners and pros alike a variety of modules. Freestylers will find rails, kickers, slide boxes and much more. Those who have had enough afterwards can relax in the chill zone or celebrate après-ski parties in one of the huts.
