Nearest Lift Locations and Car Parking


2 mins from the chalet. Quiet local skiing. Mainly drag lifts but lovely runs and some of the best views in the valley - and it is excellent value for money! Link

La Chapelle d'Abondance - Cret Beni

5 mins from the chalet, just before the village centre. There is a small nursery slope with the excellent Clos de Savoyard restaurant close by. There is a larger nursery area and restaurant at mid-station. This can be a good area for a 'base-camp' as this restaurant provides a good view of the nursery area and is a good rendezvous point for more advanced skiers returning from the higher slopes.
Cret Beni also has a very relaxed feel to it and is quieter and cheaper than the larger resorts, especially during peak periods. Link

La Chapelle d'Abondance - Panthias/Braitaz

Less than 10 mins from the chalet on the far side of the village towards Chatel. From here you can link to Torgon, Petit Chatel, Super Chatel, Morgins and the Portes du Soleil Grand Tour. Link

Chatel - Super Chatel

15 mins from the chalet in the centre of Chatel with links to Petit Chatel, Torgon, Morgins, Avoriaz and Panthias/Braitaz. Includes nursery slopes and a fabulous border-cross run. Link

Chatel - Linga (and Avoriaz, Morzine, Les Gets)

15 mins from the chalet below Chatel centre. Telecabine and fast chair lift to the upper slopes, with links to Pre La Joux, Avoriaz, Morzine and the wider Portes du Soleil. Linga is ideal for intermediate/advanced skiers. Link

Chatel - Pre La Joux / Pierre Longue (and Avoriaz, Morzine, Les Gets)

20 mins from the chalet at the head of the valley south-west of Linga.
There are two express chair-lifts into the heart of the fully linked area:
* Pre la Joux for Combe and Cornebois lifts and beyond, and
* Pierre Longue (1/4m further up from Pre la Joux) up to Plaine Dranse and on to Lindarets, Avoriaz and beyond.

There are several restaurants throughout the area. Non-skiers can take the Pierre Longue chairlift up to the restaurants at Plaine Dranse and relax in the winter sun!

The nursery slopes adjacent are adjacent to the car park and the ski instructors tend to operate from here for all abilities.

This area is good for all types of skiers, with excellent links for intermediate and experienced skiers to Linga, Avoriaz, Morzine, Les Gets and Switzerland. The off-piste skiing is particularly good. Link
