MINT Snowboarding since 2006. World Snow Award Winners in 2016 & 2017!
Chatel is a genuine French mountain village on the border of France & Switzerland that’s grown into a charming, picture postcard ski resort.
Recent years have seen major improvements in the ski lift system with the addition of the Portes du Soleil and Gabelou ski lifts, liaising the sectors of Super Châtel and Linga.
For all levels of riders there is a huge amount of terrain accessible heading towards both the French & Swiss areas of the Portes du Soleil. There are plenty of wide, open slopes which are often much quieter than other parts of the Portes du Soleil.
If you are into freestyle then the Smoothpark in Super Chatel is a well maintained snowpark which has features for both beginner and advanced snowboarders. In 2012 the Smoothpark hosted the French leg of the ‘Nike Chosen Series‘.
The off piste accessible in this ski area is absolutely unlimited, with everything from easy fun undulating terrain to steep & narrow couloirs. There are numerous backcountry peaks within easy reach, perfect or backcountry snowboarding or an exciting day out splitboarding. And best of all is the lack of people heading off the beaten trail in this area!
MINT Snowboard School offers private lessons, childrens lessons, freestyle coaching and backcountry & splitboard guiding in Chatel. Our ski school meeting point is at the bottom of the Pierre Longue chairlift. Lessons are with qualified British snowboard instructors or fluent English speaking instructors.
