New in Les Gets

07 September 2010
The Chavannes gondola is having a total facelift, the new six-person bubbles allow for quicker travel and shorter queues.  Access to the lift is easier, particularly for beginners as its now all on one level.

The snow front and ski runs at the Carry Area are being upgraded. As well as the gondola upgrades the departure point of the Boule de Gomme draglift will be repositioned. This will be of major benefit, particularly for beginners, as it will be very easy to ski effortlessly from the Ski school to the cable car due to the perfectly smooth ground. The upper ski slopes on Carry will also be remodelled to level out and widen the existing ski run.  Beginner skiers will appreciate all these changes.

A new six seater chairlift will access the Chamossiere ski area. The black and red ski runs will be accessible by the new lift which replaces both the Blanchots draglift and the old 3-man Chamossiere chairlift. It will now take only five to seven minutes to reach the summit, with breathtaking panoramic views of Mont Blanc.

A new boarder-cross run is being created on the quiet red run cruising area of Mont-Chéry. This was constructed on the advice of the silver-medal winning local Olympic champion, Déborah Anthonioz, from Vancouver’s 2010 winter Olympic games.

Les Gets links easily into the Morzine ski area giving access to 120 km of piste.  A local Morzine/Les Gets pass covers this ski area without the need for a full Portes de Soleil area pass.  The Les Gets ski area can easily be reached from both Morzine and Les Gets.  The area is very much tree lined and yet while very suitable for families and beginners the Chamossiere provides good on and off piste challenging runs.  

Les Gets is only an hour from Geneva airport making it a perfect ski weekend of short/flexible ski break location as well as having plenty of skiing for a week ski holiday.
