Les Gets Ski Resort

France

Les Gets Ski Resort

Les Gets is a linked ski resort within the Portes du Soleil. Lift passes can be purchased for Les Gets and the neighbouring area of Morzine, or for the wider Portes du Soleil. Combined, Morzine and Les Gets have around 50 lifts across several distinct ski areas. Lift passes for Mont Chéry (at one side of Les Gets) can also be purchased for that area only.

The ski area consists mainly of blue and red runs (beginner and intermediate). There is an area known as “The Bowl” into which numerous ski runs and chairlifts feed. Also in this area are the resort’s most easily accessible black runs: ‘Yeti’, accessed via the resort’s slowest chairlift, La Rosta, and Myrtilles accessed by the Grains d’Or Express. Mont Chéry 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 tourist side.

There are several spots for off-piste skiing and snowboarding, including to the sides of ‘Yeti’, the long black run off Chamossiere and one a short hike from the top of the Ranfoilly lift. The latter has been rated[by whom?] as one of the best off-piste powder bowls in Europe (although there is very often a medium chance of avalanches).

The snowpark is located on Mont Chéry, which is on the ski area on the other side of the village. A bus connects the two sides, however it takes just as long as it does to walk. The snowpark has kickers, a spine, rails, boxes, a boarder cross and new for 2007–08 was a large air bag. The park is fairly small and served by a two-man chairlift.

Les Gets has an area of the mountain for children only, le Grande Cry. This has two button lifts and several runs, all themed around trappers and Native Americans. They hold weekly treasure hunts for children.

Many companies offer ski lessons for adults and children, private and public. The main company operating in the area is ESF (L’Ecole du Ski Francais), which has a building situated at the foot of the slopes, adjacent to Les Gets Village itself.

There is an open-air ice skating rink in the centre of the village.
