Les Gets Ski Resort

From its origins (in the 11th century), the village of Les Gets has had wood in its veins, the name "Les Gets" came from the local dialect words "gitte" or "giette" meaning the corridors used to send logs rapidly down the hillside. Well before tourism developed from winter sports, wood and water were the main resources for the inhabitants of Les Gets.

 

In Les Gets, you start off with your skis clicked on in the village. Once up on the pistes, you can just let yourselves be carried away by the tranquility of the area and take the time to contemplate the stupendous background: the Mont Blanc range. The Les Gets / Morzine ski area links the Chavannes and Mont-Chéry areas to the Pléney et Nyon areas of Morzine.

 

Situated in the heart of the Portes du Soleil (14 French / Swiss resorts, 650 km of skiable runs), the Les Gets area also offers "discovery" circuits with the aim of guiding you as far as our Swiss neighbours by using pistes suitable for your own level of skiing.

 

On the pistes there is a veritable American-Indian village, complete with teepees, Indians, Trappers and lot of activities for the children including, treasure hunts, a war-paint workshop. The «Territoire du Grand Cry», a small paradise for children, includes boarder-cross style pistes (with moguls and banked turns, to practice skiing while having fun).

 

In the village there are bars, shops and lovely restaurants plus an outdoor seasonal ice rink. Les Gets is just an hour away from the Interenational Airport in Geneva so it is very easily accessible too.
