Situated in the heart of the vast Portes du Soleil, Les Gets displays Savoyard charm and has access to 650 km of groomed pistes. Upmarket yet unpretentious, Les Gets is a firm favourite with families and has even been awarded the prestigious Famille Plus label as it offers superior infrastructure, services, and amenities for families. Not only is Les Gets a winter sports paradise, but it is also a fantastic location for sporty summer holidays too, with a large mountain bike park, a lake for swimming, an 18-hole golf course and plenty of hiking trails.
Les Gets also offers great access to 12 resorts, 90 mountain restaurants, 199 ski lifts and 30 ski areas due to its central location in the Portes du Soleil ski domain.
The resort of Les Gets has a lot more to offer than just skiing, there is the opportunity to try your hand at a new skill at the art and craft classes, one of the carpentry workshops or pottery. If you are away with children then there are plenty of activities to entertain them with, such as, bowling, ice skating or the cinema.
If you still want to be out of the mountain but want to get away from your skis, you could have a go at paragliding or parachuting through the mountains or hire some snowshoes and go on a walk and reach places which you can’t on skis.
Perched on the edge of the Portes du Soleil ski area, Les Gets has 48 of its own lifts and the resorts tops out at 1826 m. The main local slopes are accessed by the Chavannes gondola and the Chavannes chairlift from the nursery slopes beside the village. Mont Chéry on the opposite side of Les Gets is south-east facing and has lovely wooded secteurs and open slopes, although often closes later in the season.
One of 12 linked resorts, Les Gets offers access to 285 runs and 196 lifts. As one of the outlying villages in the ski domain it’s unlikely that you’d ski further than the lower slopes of Avoriaz in a day, but it’s nice to have the option.
The ski season runs from December to April, with snow cannons based on the runs to allow a smooth surface during dry weather. All the routes are maintained regularly, and you can expect expert guidance to help you develop your skills and become a better skier.
The closest airport to Geneva is Les Gets, which is around 50 km away.
