 The "La Chapelle" pass

The "La Chapelle" pass provides access to all the lifts and pistes in the 2 local ski areas - the Cret-Beni and Braitaz ski areas.The pass covers the shuttle bus service link between the village, Cret-Beni and Panthiaz/Braitaz, and gives access to 23 prepared pistes and 12 lifts and tows, which is probably plenty for most beginners.

1/ Crêt-Béni ski area
In the heart of La Chapelle d'Abondance, is a firm favourite with families and offers a great choice of tree lined pistes on the flanks of Mont de Grange. You will find a 6 seat express chairlift ready to speed you on your way, whilst our brand new snow cannon system helps ensure we can offer plenty of skiing even mother nature has held back. Beginners will find a choice of wide and gentle, green and blue pistes, some of which descend from the very top of the lift system right to the edge of the village. Meanwhile the red runs are steep enough to provide experienced skiers some real challenges.
Whilst the snow park will be a firm favourite with Boarders with a range of natural bumps and artificial rails, pipes and other features to test your skills.

2/ Braitaz ski area
Is perched high up on the opposite side of the valley. The village shuttle bus links to the Panthiaz car park where a telecabin awaits to speed you to tree lined slopes on the flanks of Mont Linleu. This area also links with 4 pistes of the Torgon ski area in Switzerland.

Braitaz is also the gateway to the vast Portes du Soleil ski area, but to explore the links and slopes beyond Torgon, you will need either the "Chapelle Liberté" or the full "Portes du Soleil" Pass.
