Visitor Reviews of Chatel

Garry from United Kingdom writes:

Chatel and the Porte de Soleil are great BUT the lift operators need to go on a customer care course in the USA with very few exceptions. They just stand around gormlessly and let the seat whack you in the back of the legs and when it snows they don't sweep the seats clean so consequently you sit in a pool of freezing water. So wake up guys and make a good resort great.
