Les Gets is a pretty alpine village in the French Alps sitting at 1170m. It offers easy access to the Portes du Soleil ski area, that in total has 650km of marked pistes and crosses over into Switzerland.
Les Gets dates as far back as 1135 with it farming history reflective in the copious rolling blue slopes, evident of the pastures lying beneath. The first ski lift was erected here in 1938, and has since grown from strength to strength. It is by no means ‘purpose built’ like many of the French resorts that rose up in the 60’s and 70’s – both old and new ski chalets dominate the mountain valley.
With a well laid out lift system easily reched by the petit train in resort, there are minimal lift queues and well groomed pistes to be enjoyed by all. The main take off point is at the bottom of the Chavannes lift in the town centre, with other options such a the Les Gets telecabin taking you to the plateau where you’ll find a wide expanse of blue slopes perfect for learners. You can also get skiing via the Perrier’s lift at the other end of the village and the Mont Chery bubble.
If you find yourself in the right spot the views are incredible. With unmissable views of Mont Blanc from both the Mont Chery side of the village (linked by train or on foot) as well as above the Ranfoilly bowl, which has a big selection of blue, red and black runs to cater for all abilities.
Although the resort is on the quieter side in comparison to neighbouring Avoriaz and Morzine, there are still plenty of great bars in town for some après ski fun. The first port of call would be the Hotel Bellevue that sits at the bottom of the slopes and has a regular DJ or live music to keep everyone entertained, as well as Bar Bush and the Black Bear. Plus there’s the newly opened Ana Purna wine bar for something a little more sophisticated if that is more to your taste.
The resort has a great selection of accommodation options from luxury chalets to well-priced hotels, plus the restaurant choice is excellent, all serving the cuisine you would expect in a Savoyard town (cheese and meats!). You’ll also be hard pushed not to sample the local digestif ‘Génépi’ which most restaurants offer for free at the end of a meal.
Les Gets also has a great selection of shops ranging from your standard ski gear and local artisanal stores, to interior design shops. All conveniently located along the main high street, where you’ll also find the villages ice rink and Tourist office.
