We think so, but what is Les Gets’ secret? We think it’s all about variety and more specifically, the variety of slopes.
Everyone has a favourite resort and different reasons why. Whether it’s the village, the slopes or a favourite restaurant, there is something that draws us back to certain places, time and time again.
The Les Gets ski area has such a wide range of slopes that are quick to access, it's ideal for groups with mixed levels of experience and abilities.
The main beginner area, located at the top of the Chavannes gondola, allows novice skiers to enjoy being up in the mountains rather than stuck down in the village. It’s also one of the best beginner areas that I’ve ever taught in, with 2 magic carpets and a rope tow, providing fantastic progression for adult and child beginners alike.
The next step brings you to the wide-open gentle slopes of the Chavannes, to build confidence and optional steeper sections to test your metal before venturing deeper into the ski area.
There is so much to do in this one area you really can’t ever get bored. The Grand Cry Indian Village and Milka runs provide fun, themed tree runs as well as teepees, perfect for a snack break, and mini-farm with goats and sheep to visit.
For the more adventurous, the freestyle snowpark is full of kickers and rails to suit the most ardent freestyle junkies.
Don’t be fooled into thinking that Les Gets is just for beginners though. More experienced skiers have fast access to the Ranfoilly bowl and Perrières with a great range of cruisy red runs but head to Chamossière for it’s challenging red and black runs and off-piste freeride zone.
If peace and quiet are your thing, a trip to Mont Chery has to be on your ‘to-do’ list and you can stroll across the village or take advantage of the little train that links the two ski areas. Dominated by it’s red and black runs, it is the domain of experienced skiers, which, makes it lift queues a very rare occurrence, even in the busiest holiday periods.
And let’s be fair, Les Gets isn’t the biggest village in the Alps but being one of 12 connected resorts of the Portes du Soleil boasting 286 pistes and 196 ski-lifts there really is something for everyone.
