"If you're looking for great skiing, a lively town and a short transfer, then Les Gets is a perfect choice - it's easy to see why it's one of the most popular choices for British skiers. I visited Les Gets for the first time a few years ago and can't wait to go to back to explore the rest of the Portes du Soleil area."

Les Gets Ski Holidays

The charming ski resort of Les Gets is located just 65km (an approximate 1 hour transfer) from Geneva Airport in the huge Portes du Soleil ski area. A small and pretty village set among rolling peaks, Les Gets is made up of traditional chalet-style buildings with shops, restaurants, hotels and bars lining the main street.

Les Gets is an excellent choice for families - with lots of gentle rolling slopes, most of which return directly to the village - and also serves as a great base for skiing adventures in the larger Portes du Soleil ski area. This charming resort is a firm favourite with Ski Independence clients.

Skiing in Les Gets

Les Gets sits at the south-west tip of the Portes du Soleil ski area. This makes it an even shorter transfer than its neighbour Morzine at only an hour from Geneva Airport. Again, as with Morzine, you have the huge Portes du Soleil ski area at your disposal where, with approximately 650km of pistes on offer across 12 resorts in France and Switzerland, you certainly won’t run out of places to ski.

When staying in Les Gets, you have a choice of two lift passes depending on how much skiing you plan to do. The Les Gets-Morzine pass is a good choice for beginners and there's plenty to keep leisurely skiers who want to check out Les Gets and the neighbouring resort, perhaps for a spot of lunch, busy too - especially if on a short break. Within the Les Gets-Morzine area, the Chavannes Bowl and the Mont Chery areas are popular options thanks to their choice of runs for intermediates and advanced skiers, as well as a good selection of mountain restaurants for the required hot chocolate breaks!

For those who look to cover a lot of mileage or who are likely to seek higher and steeper slopes, the Portes du Soleil pass is the best choice, allowing you unlimited access to the full network of pistes across all the resorts in the Portes du Soleil area. This includes resorts such as Avoriaz and Chatel which have an extensive variety of  slopes for all abilites, snowparks and off-piste options as well as one of the world's steepest runs, the infamous Swiss Wall. Avoriaz can be reached on skis via Morzine (with a free tourist train or bus taking you from the Les Gets side at Pleney to the Avoriaz side at Super Morzine or Prodains).
