LES GETS in WINTER


Les Gets is part of the vast Portes du Soleil ski system situated between Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc, a huge skiing area (over 650km of Piste) encompassing 12 ski resorts (including Morzine, Avoriaz and Chatel). At an altitude of 1200 metres, the resort benefits from high snowfall and being only an hour away from Geneva Airport.

Les Gets has a fabulous ‘winter wonderland’ feel during the winter season, with twinkling Christmas lights, flood lit pistes and an outdoor ice skating rink in the town hall square. Each evening bustles with life - children playing in the snow and adults enjoying the après ski and independent shopping! Voted as the number one family resort by many newspapers, gaining the ‘Family Plus Mountain’ Award that guarantees a welcoming environment for children and a fantastic snow record, Les Gets is the ideal place for families and friends to experience the best ski holiday possible. 

The great thing about Les Gets skiing is that there is skiing for all abilities: There is a well-developed beginners area serviced by a brand new bubble lift from the village centre, a good variety of blues and reds and a handful of challenging blacks for the more daring.

The off piste when you ski Les Gets is great, and if you want to really push yourself one day then a tour of the Portes du Soleil will delight and tire the hardiest of skiers!
