Les Gets’ immediate ski area links to Morzine and on through to the larger Portes Du Soleil. The Les Gets area offers a fantastic tree lined ski area with wonderful slopes to learn on and progress into a strong intermediate. Wide sweeping pistes characterise the area and provide more than enough terrain for a ski holiday even without linking to Avoriaz and Switzerland. For the more advanced there are plenty of bumps, steeps and deep snow to be found too. Towards Avoriaz and the wider Portes Du Soleil there are endless opportunities for higher slopes, high mileage skiing and fantastic terrain for every level. Advanced skiers and snowboarders can access some steep pistes including the famous Swiss Wall, patrolled off pistes ‘snow zones’ and wonderful backcountry. For those of the freestyle persuasion there are some of the best parks in Europe and the unique Burton stash. The Portes Du Soleil is not to be missed.
Number of lifts in the Portes Du Soleil: 206 Total km’s of piste: 650 km
Les Gets transfer times (approximate times based on normal road conditions)
Geneva 1 hour 10 minutes Lyon 2 hours 45 minutes
Les Gets is only 1 hour and 10 minutes from Geneva airport making for one of the shortest transfers available. It can be very busy on both Saturdays and Sundays as both are big changeover days. Due to the proximity to many towns and cities the high number of day skiers at the weekend can raise the number of vehicles on the road. With the traffic from Avoriaz, Morzine and Les Gets exiting through the same roads below Les Gets we suggest caution and elongating departure times on Saturdays and Sundays from New Year until the end of March.
