Le Giettaz (Les Portes du Mont Blanc) Ski Resort

Part of the Savoyard ski area of ​​'Portes du Mont-Blanc', La Giettaz (pronounced "Jietta" or "The Jiett!" For regulars) is a small mountain village of traditional Savoie.
The area includes the resorts of Combloux, Le Jaillet / Megeve and Cordon and offers 100 km of slopes mostly red runs.
But this small resort is also part of the vast 'Evasion Mont Blanc', 445 km of pistes spread over 6 resorts mainly around the Megeve Valley.
You can also ski in the cosmopolitain resort of La Clusaz - 10 km away...

In a beautiful setting between the Aravis range and Mont Blanc.
Surrounded by spruce forest, with abundant wildlife - not unusual to see deer in your garden !

La Giettaz is the ideal place for lovers of mountain scenery and postcard panoramas.
Numerous downhill runs and hiking trails take you deep into the mountains, amid a soothing silence, occasionally broken by the passage of the odd goat !


Domaine Evasion Mont Blanc Ski Area

 

A lesser known area that deserves greater recognition as it is the 3rd largest area in France with 445km (276 miles) of piste served by 107 ski lifts and featuring the resorts of Megeve, St Gervais, Les Contamines, Combloux, La Giettaz and St Nicolas de Veroce.  You can also link into Les Houches and onwards to the Chamonix valley via the Tramway du Mont Blanc from St Gervais. The lift pass price is reasonable for such a large area and the atmosphere that of genuine French market towns and villages and not of purpose built ski resorts .  If you are looking for authenticity where French is still spoken in the bars and shops this is the place ! 

The area is one of the easiest to reach from Geneva airport , just 86km so an easy 45 minutes motorway drive and then just 7 minutes up the hill to St Gervais. 

The area is less well known as there are no major tour operators bringing the mass market to the area, however there are plenty of like minded independent travellers and the range of villages means you will find a holiday to suit almost every person and pocket. From the uber rich clientele of Megeve to the family friendly resort of Les Contamines – there is something for everyone. This also applies to the skiing which is varied to suit all abilities and the traditional villages makes this a great destination in the summer months too with a range of activities for everyone.
