10/03/2021: Today's Updates...
Bonjour from Chatel.
It is a cold and frosty start to the day here in Chatel, with temperatures close to -3c in the village and below -4c in the valley.
The Meteociel site is down this morning, so most of the charts we view are not accessible, however, there are some points of interest coming up in terms of snowfalls.
Thursday night, Saturday night, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, all have potential for some snowfall down to village elevation. Temperatures may also trend down from Sunday, so it does look as though a period with a much wintrier feel is on the way.

Those who bought PDS season passes in the "flash sale" from the Chatel ski pass website last spring, should now be receiving emails giving options to either roll them over to next season, receiving a credit note or getting a refund. This applies to unused passes.
Most updates and photos this season are posted on the WhatsApp members group
