What’s new in Chatel for Winter 2010 ?   September 30th, 2009

It’s been a very busy summer up the mountain, with a new chair lift and extra snow cannons being installed.

Chatel is currently in the middle of a 4 year program to install snow cannons on all the pistes in the Pre La Joux area, this summer has seen the creation of a new reservoir to supply the extra water to the cannons that have been added to the Les Combes and Linga 2 pistes. These new cannons bring the total number in the resort to 173.

The new super fast 6-person chair lift will be called Echo Alpin and is a replacement for the 3-person old Linga 2 lift, the new lift will start further down the mountain and only take 5 minutes to get to the top.

Anyone who has skied the huge off piste bowl of La Leiche will be loving the new lift, because instead of having to get the Leiche drag lift and then Linga 2 chair to get back to the top which used to take over 15 mins in total, Echo Alpin will now do it in a third of the time.

The diggers have also been very busy up at Super Chatel earlier this summer, they’ve reshaped the red piste which comes down towards the village and upgraded the snow cannons that where there.
