Les Gets Alpine Pearls
Les Gets is part of the fabulous Franco/Swiss Portes du Soleil ski area, with its 650 km of ski slopes suitable for all levels. A frontier-free area, with fun skiing between pine trees and through snow-covered Alpine meadows, with views to take your breath away, starting with the magnifi cent back-drop of Mont Blanc.

Impossible to describe in a few words, this is an "infinite" domain, where the mere contemplation of landscapes entices you to explore them. In Les Gets itself there are 2 ski sectors and you can ski back down to the village. 120 kms of ski-slopes with a technical diversity to delight both small and big. If you are still game for more we recommend our favourite : the Chamossières sector, amidst the Morzine and the Gets, offering an impressive view from the chair lift before pure joy on one of the longest red runs of the domaine.

Family off-piste

For the more experienced, the gets also offers off-piste sections: but be sure to check with local guides about possible risks. Two "familiy off-piste" itineraries are also available: "Les Maisons Larges" et "Les Crêtes du Chéry": this fairly easy routes leads intermediate skiers off into grandiose untracked snowfields with views of Mont Blanc. In order not to get lost and ski in total safety, you should be accompanied by a mountain professional. Welcome to a White Paradise! Find out just what it feels like to be a musher, and try their exotic method of transport, with sensations as pleasurable as they are thrilling. Before you lies the chance to discover wide open spaces whilst learning to drive a team of dogs, or enjoying a ride as a family (with a statequalified musher). From a short trek to the most technical driving techniques, a variety of formulas are available, every day. Pick of the bunch snow-shoeing. Escape into the heart of the mountains for a snowshoe trek: the silence is only broken by your footsteps in the snow...
