If you are looking for all of the charm and excitement of a ski holiday, but in a slightly more tranquil setting, Le Chable should be at the top of your wish list.
Le Chable is one of the most iconic Alpine ski resorts in the world for its quintessential surroundings, fantastic skiing and friendly atmosphere.
Situated only 15 minutes away from the larger Verbier, Le Chable is a great option for those who enjoy a slightly slower pace of life, perhaps looking for a ski retreat rather than fully adrenaline-pumping week of pistes and partying.
Le Chable has a ski station and new lift to Bruson, which has opened up the area to the other side of the valley area. This is fast leading to an increase in interest from visitors in staying and skiing in the area, as it allows you the exclusive chance to try out some almost untouched pistes. No one can deny that skiing in Le Chable is an experience to be had. The resort contains 6 ski lifts and offers an amazing 1345 metres of vertical descent on its magnificent slopes. Across 12 pistes you can enjoy unbelievable skiing, including 30 km of cross country ski trails.
It’s not just for skiing that Le Chable is so popular. It is its charm that makes Le Chable so desirable for visitors from across the world. Ancient 15th century architecture such as the hauntingly beautiful gothic church and traditional Swiss-design homes set on winding alleyways make the resort a true getaway. You may feel as though you have stepped through a portal into an imaginary land, and you will certainly feel refreshed by the unique local culture of this wonderful town.
In winter, the majestic Swiss Alps are fully covered in a thick layer of powdery snow which dusts the rooftops of the buildings as the light glint across the valley. This season is much-loved by skiers and snowboarders, from beginners to professionals, as well as those with a penchant for snow sports such as ice climbing, tobogganing and those just looking for that winter wonderland experience. Perhaps you could visit for a really special Christmas break and travel over to Verbier for its famous New Year’s Eve celebrations before heading back to your luxury Le Chable or Verbier accommodation when you feel like a little down-time.
All year round, Le Chable is a truly enchanting destination. Each year in February, the town is transformed for the annual Mardi Gras festival and parade. A usually serene getaway takes on great colour and energy as fantastically decorated floats and bright, beautiful costumes pass through the resort.
During summer, the crisp sunlight dapples down on the vibrant green grass and beautiful flowers of the Alpine meadows in full bloom. Le Chable is also a highly desirable destination for many during the summer months. The resort becomes awash in colour with thousands of stunning flowers and trees blossoming. Many cyclists love to follow mountain bike trails, in fact, the resort has formed part of the Tour De France and Tour De Romandie routes in the recent past. Le Chable is also popular with hikers, walkers and nature lovers who love to absorb the metamorphosis of the striking landscape as the area warms up. In summer you can even hop on the bus or ski lift across the valleys to take in the talent of local musicians at Verbier Festival.
