Located between Lake Leman and Mont-Blanc, in the heart of the Portes du Soleil ski area, is the resort of Les Gets (1,172 to 2,002 metres).
Typically Savoyard, Les Gets has managed to preserve its mountain-village soul, it is a charming village of mainly traditional chalet buildings, in stone and wood nestling in the valley bottom with mountains rising on either side. The church with its steeple, the old style farmhouses and tree lined slopes make an attractive alpine picture. The village has expanded to encompass the winter sports market and there is a good range of shops and some excellent restaurants.
In the summer you can do any of the following activities; hiking, mountain biking, golf course opposite Mont-Blanc, the tree-to-tree Adventure Park… A wide range of outdoor activities for everyone!
Les Gets hosts many downhill mountain biking events, it has an 18 hole par 70 golf course 5264 metres in length which overlooks Mont Blanc which in the winter forms part of the pistes.
In the winter, Les Gets is a linked ski resort within the Portes du Soleil ski area. Combined Morzine and Les Gets, have around 50 lifts across several distinct ski areas. The ski area consists mainly of blue and red runs (beginner and intermediate). There is an area known as “The Bowl” to which numerous ski runs and chairlifts feed into. Situated in this area are the resort’s most easily accessible black runs: Yeti and Myrtille. Mont Chery hosts the majority of black runs, also having numerous red runs, with just one blue and no green pistes. It is the “locals'” mountain, Les Chavannes being the more tourist side.
There are several good spots for off-piste skiing and snowboarding, the best of which are; to the sides of ‘Yeti’, Les Creux the long black run off Chamossiere and also by taking a short hike from the top of the Ranfoilly lift. The latter has been rated as one of the best off piste powder bowls in Europe.
The snowpark is located on Mont Chery, which is on the ski area on the other side of the village. A bus connects the 2 sides however it takes just as long to walk. The snowpark has kickers, a spine, rails, boxes, a boarder cross. The park is fairly small and served by a 2 man chairlift.
Les Gets has an area of the mountain for children only, Le Grande Cry “Indian Park”. This has 2 button lifts and several runs, all themed around trappers and Indians. They hold weekly treasure hunts for children.
Les Gets is not just about the village and the views. The variety and quality of the skiing is one of the reasons why families go back year after year. The ease with which beginners and intermediate skiers can access gentle scenic slopes with plenty of more challenging terrain for more experienced members of the family, makes Les Gets a favourite.
Once you start exploring you’ll find plenty of charming mountain restaurants where you can stop for everything from a restorative hot chocolate to a hearty home made tartiflette. Many are old mountain huts originally used by farmers and most are still run by local families.
This sunny village has a quiet ambiance that appeals to families but also Les Gets livens up at the weekend for those wishing to have a drink or dance after skiing. The scenery in Les Gets is best from high points such as Mont Chery where you can get a lovely panorama of the village, wooded slopes and in the distance – Mont Blanc.
