Skiing in Les Gets

01 January 0001

Les Gets

  • Part of one of the World’s largest ski areas with access to over 650 kilometres of ski slopes.
  • Small lift queues and modern lifts mean more skiing and less waiting around.
  • Being just an hour away from Geneva means that you can ski the day that you arrive!
  • Great wide runs that flow through a range of different terrain, with high altitude skiing and low tree lines.
  • Low crowds throughout the week meaning you get these excellent pistes to yourselves, including the terrain parks for those that want them!

Ski Area Overview

Skiing in Les Gets is relatively varied and definitely suitable for a group consisting of mixed abilities. There is an area accessed via the Chavannes lift known as "The Bowl" into which numerous ski runs and chairlifts feed. Alternatively, Les Gets’ jewel in the crown, Mont Chéry, is a quiet and beautiful spot offering some challenging black runs and numerous reds that range in difficulty. Mont Chery also has plenty of wide open pistes which role down the mountains into sunny bowls, plenty of tree skiing and a fantastic snow park for those who like to throw themselves off things! Furthermore, Les Gets is famously family friendly and even has a Native American themed trail on the Chavannes which includes real tepees and various themed activities to enhance your day on the slopes.

Take a look below at our breakdown to find out more information relevant to your ability:

Advanced

With some excellent wooded areas and plenty of off piste available, Les Gets has plenty on offer for expert skiers and snowboarders. In particular, the black runs that run down the back of Mont Chery are fairly steep and often develop some natural moguls. Eventually however, expert skiers and boarders would be best advised to explore the entire Portes du Soleil area for some more variety and some further challenging terrain.

Intermediates

Les Gets is a fantastic resort to flatter your ability and build confidence on lovely blues. There are plenty of excellent red runs on the local slopes suitable for lower and higher end intermediates, including Mont Chery. However, those wishing to clock up some mileage or advance onto tougher terrain would be best advised to take full advantage of the entire Portes du Soleil ski area.

Beginners

You can rest assured that beginners and lower end intermediates are well catered for in Les Gets. The lower nursery slopes are ideal for young children and for adults finding their ski legs and are lined with snow guns in order to keep that cover topped up. Also, there is a large area over at

Chavannes which is snow sure and boasts plenty of progressive terrain. The Bleuets on Chavannes is well suited for those ready to progress onto the next level, however the Chavannes area is generally suited for beginner skiers right the way through to lower end intermediates.

Snowboarders

Both in the local Les Gets/Morzine area and the Portes du Soleil there is more than enough for all levels of snowboarders to stay entertained. Throughout the ski area there are few draglifts, and even if you do come across a draglift it is rare that there isn’t a chairlift alternative heading in a similar direction! The Les Gets/Morzine area also has very few flat areas that may catch snowboarders out. But one of the best things about being around the Portes du Soleil area is the variety of terrain parks such as the award winning ‘Stash’ park over in Avoriaz which has features made entirely out of wood.

Off Piste*

With such a vast array of skiing in the Portes du Soleil area you will find that there is an unbelievable amount of off-piste to match it. For those not wanting to get the touring gear together there is still plenty on offer around the resort, whether it be up high or down low dodging trees and hitting cliff drops! Around Les Gets and Morzine the area around the Point du Nyon and Chamossiere areas are great for charging the powder and some stunning views of Mont Blanc from the top!

* Ski Weekends strongly advise that off piste skiing should only be undertaken when in the company of a professional ski instructor or guide.
