Winter in Les Gets

Skiing and snowboarding are naturally our primary winter sports, and the Les Gets-Morzine area alone boasts over 50 pistes. Linked to Les Gets, the full Portes Du Soleil pass will give you access to over 650km of runs in both France and Switzerland, all of which we are happy to tour with you to share our knowledge of the area. We are ideally suited to all levels of ski ability, are a great place to progress your skills, and even boast 9 terrain parks (including superpipe and airbag jumps) for those who like to be scared!

Further afield we can arrange to take you for a day to nearby Chamonix, or the Grand Massif or Aravis ski areas – just ask for more details.

These are activities that bring together the whole community – even being included as PE lessons for the local schools! Les Gets is very proud of it’s community Ski Club, run by the ESF, and of the achievements of it’s previous members.

The silver medal winning performance by Deborah Anthonioz in the Olympic Winter Games 2010 Women’s Boardercross has resulted in our very own ski/boarder cross course here in Les Gets in her honour – the only such permanent facility  in France capable of receiving international competitions. The course is open to all throughout the winter season.

Other snow-based activities are also available across the Portes Du Soleil. Les Gets offers daily guided snowshoe walks, and a parapente tour gives you the chance to see the area’s beauty from a birds-eye view. You can have a go at other types of skiing too – telemarking, randonee, mono-skiing, and snow scooters (if you are brave enough!). 

Dog-Sledding and Ski-Joering (mountain horse riding) are also available, and for a more leisurely afternoon you can visit Les Gets open air ice-skating rink in the town centre.

For the less thrill seeking amongst you we have a newly refurbished spa in the centre of Les Gets, offering many types of massage and other therapies, and a brand new indoor pool in the neighbouring town of Morzine.
