Keep a look out for SkiColor, a unique (and colourful!) ski event
Hosted in Les Gets in early March, SkiColor takes inspiration from the infamous colour run. Based in Mont-Chéry area of Les Gets, over 1000 participants wear white suits and ski through an explosion of coloured powder. With its own pop up ‘Skicolour village’ the event also includes live music, children workshops and art exhibitions.
Skiing in Les Gets
Ideal short break destination for families
Small and family friendly village with a quiet charm that appeals to families, Les Gets is a great base to explore the huge ski area of the Portes du Soleil.
Best ski base for experts
Often overlooked for its neighbour - Morzine, Les Gets may not offer as convenient access to the whole Portes du Soleil but it does benefit from quick access to the Mont Chery ski area which offers a great range of challenging (yet quiet) red and black runs perfect for experts and intermediates.
Beginners will also enjoy Les Gets. The nursery slopes are conveniently located in the village and once these have been mastered, we recommend heading to the bleuets on Chanvannes.
650km of ski piste
For quick access to the full area of Portes de Soleil, the Ardent gondola is a short drive from resort.
One lift pass, full access
Les Gets offers one lift pass, this is the morzine-Les gets pass that covers the whole Portes du soleil area
Where to Après Ski
There isn’t a huge après scene in Les Gets, but there is a bar or two for a well-earned drink after a long days skiing. The Irish bar offer 6 home brewed beers while the Black Bear above it, is also a popular choice.
For those looking to dance, The Igloo Disco is open until 6am and has regular theme nights.
Where to Eat
There are some great dining options in Les Gets, to recommend a few – The Ferme de Montagne, The Tourbillon, Outa and the Fruitière. Choucas and Tyrol serve excellent pizza while Vieux Chêne is a great choice for traditional Savoyard dining.
Looking for food on the mountains? Mont Chery has two restaurants that have great views and quality food. Grande Ourse is at the top of the mountain and Belvedere is half way down the slopes.
