Skiing for everyone

We come to ski in Les Gets with family or friends with the certainty of finding something to satisfy everyone.

Beginners are particularly pampered in this Haute-Savoie resort with the p’tite glisse pass, which allows them to make their first descents at a special rate. This pass gives access to 7 ski lifts and 11 slopes including 5 green, 5 blue and 1 red, as well as the Mappys area, an area dedicated to novices located away from the resort.

Skiers of all levels will have fun skiing down the green and blue slopes on the Chavannes side, while experienced skiers can set off from Mont-Chéry where red and black slopes predominate.

Our favorite slopes in Les Gets:

  • the Bleuet blue slope located on the Chavannes slope, for its pretty descent of nearly 2 km in the middle of chalets and fir trees

  • the blue slope Les Trembles, the newcomer in the Perrières sector

  • the red runs Lièvre, Epervier and Chamois to perfect your technique

  • the black track La Gazelle to test yourself on a World Cup track

  • the Ibex black slope for its passages with almost 70% slope and its dreaded starting wall

On the children's side

The resort-village offers many mountain activities for young skiers.

Once they have discovered Bankids, it's a safe bet that your little ones from 2 to 6 years old will not want to leave this mini ice floe located at the bottom of the slopes. What could be better than to think of yourself as little Eskimos evolving in the middle of igloos, ice caves and bears?

From 3 years old, the Jardin des Neiges and the Piou-Piou Club will help your children to make their first descent on skis, surrounded by instructors and animators.

At any age, the Espace des Mappys is the ideal place to learn the basics of skiing by taking advantage of gentle slopes and conveyor belts. Here there are only beginners and you learn in peace and in total safety.

Who wouldn't be tempted by a little hot chocolate at the end of the day exploring the descent? Gourmets young and old can just head to the area of ​​the purple Milka® slope to enjoy it, after having overcome a few ski challenges.

Finally, 5-12 year olds will not be able to miss the territory of Grand-Cry, a village with the allure of the far west. In addition to the various activities dedicated to them, young and old can set off on the green track with sound for the Indians. It is dotted with sets, mini-slalom, bumps and tunnels for a total change of scenery.

Snowboard and other slides

Les Gets is one of the best flagship resorts of the Portes du Soleil in terms of freestyle areas.

To discover all new sensations of skiing, go to the blue Gentiane slope on the Chavannes slope.

To make your first snowboard descents, head for the mini boardercross suitable for the whole family. Seasoned skiers and snowboarders will enjoy the Deborah Anthonioz snowpark and boardercross, named after the Olympic vice-champion from the resort.

Another atmosphere on the Mont-Chéry side with a parallel slalom to challenge yourself on timed courses.

And if that's not enough to satisfy your appetite for riding, take to the seas!

With 11 snowparks and 4 boardercrosses spread over different resorts in the area (Avoriaz, Chatel, les Crosets, La Chapelle d'Abondance and of course les Gets), the Portes du Soleil will not let you down. 

Off-piste and freeride

Ultra accessible, you get to choose the great offer of off-piste routes in Les Gets that is the perfect configuration for learning to freeride.

Due to their low vertical drop, Les Gets has freeride spots intended for beginners and intermediate levels. You can progress in powder snow in total safety through the forests of the Chavannes sector.

The Mont-Chéry side also has beautiful sections of freeride skiing on gentle slopes with good visibility, one of the assets of off-piste in a mid-mountain resort.

The ESF Les Gets organizes off-piste courses during school holiday periods. Intended for good skiers, they allow groups of 8 people maximum accompanied by a great guide to discover nooks and crannies unknown to the public and evolve on different terrains to vary the pleasures and sensations.





Nordic Ski

The resort's charm and the tremendous snow-covered panoramas appeal to Nordic skiing enthusiasts of all levels.

Cross-country skiing or skating have their place in Les Gets, with 25 km of trails dedicated to Nordic skiing.

On the Chavannes side, you will have the choice between three loops, lasting from 20 min for 920 m in length to 1:05 for the one spanning 4.4 km.

In the Mont-Chéry sector, the loops are a little longer: allow 45 minutes for the 2.9 km long and up to 1h50 for the 7.3 km longest.

A marked and secure ski touring route starting from the village at an altitude of 1172 m and climbing to the summit of Mont-Chéry at an altitude of 1826 m allows you to tame the wild nature of this slope in winter while admiring an exceptional view of Mont-Blanc.
