Les Gets is a delightful French village in the heart of the Portes du Soleil region, 80km from Geneva airport. A traditional dairy farming community in years of old, Les Gets has become one of the most popular ski destinations in The Alps for families, due to its relaxed yet vibrant atmosphere, close proximity to the airport and being part of one of Europe’s largest linked ski areas.
With 650km of slopes to enjoy across the Portes du Soleil, there is something to cater for all abilities; from the wide, groomed pistes in Les Gets and Mont Chery to the steeper more challenging slopes in Avoriaz and Chatel. Cross-border skiing is also on offer and the world famous “Swiss Wall” is a real challenge for expert skiers. In addition to the fantastic range of skiing available, the panoramic views are some of the most breath-taking in The Alps; the view of Mont Blanc from the top of the Chamossiere is simply stunning. The village is full of life with around 100 bars, shops and restaurants to frequent and an outdoor ice rink adds to the charm.
Further to the popularity of the resort in the winter months, Les Gets offers an extensive list of summer activities including mountain biking, paraponting, mountaineering, golf, hiking and horse riding. Some of the lifts are open in the summer allowing access to the mountains throughout the year.
The Portes du Soleil continues to improve and update its infrastructure. The second half of the plan to facilitate and speed up access between Morzine and Avoriaz begins in 2019 with the construction of a new lift between Morzine town centre and Prodains, at the foot of Avoriaz. This fantastic addition to the region will allow far quicker access to the highest pistes in the ski area and demonstrates the Portes do Soleil’s intention to evolve and stay alongside other prime resorts.
Located in the picturesque family area of La Turche in Les Gets, the 600km of the Portes de Soleil ski slopes are on the doorstep.
