Les Gets Resort Map

Les Gets Resort Guide

Our Les Gets CLUB Chalet is situated at 300 vertical metres above Les Gets in Les Chauvannes, the major lift and piste crossroads and start of all the cross country tracks.

From here you can take the bubble lift down to the resort until late in the day, or select from a number of gentle pistes down to the lower nursery slopes. The lifts outside the door lead you to the challenging Point de Nyon, the untracked Chamoissiere off piste or the gentle intermediate Les Gets bowl.

Just over the ridge is Morzine from where the variety of the Portes du Soleil is outstanding; the largest linked ski area in the world, a claim made by many certainly, but only here will you find 2 countries, 14 resorts, 209 lifts, 288 marked slopes, and over 650 Km of piste. Mountain restaurants are a real highlight; value for money traditional log cabins with open fires, local speciality dishes and "vin chaud" on tap.

For beginners
Altitude Lodge is perfectly located for the beginner’s area of Les Chavannes. With a dedicated learning area which consists of two magic carpets, a snow cable and a rope tow to access skiing on the 4 slopes in a quiet and secure environment.

Snow parks
If you are less confident in the park but looking to improve the best place to start is in the park at Mont Chery. It’s never very busy and the jumps are gentler so you don’t have to worry about embarrassing yourself in front of others. On the Les Chavannes side is where you’ll find the Boarder Cross for all levels, which is accessed by the Mouille au Roi drag lift. There are also 2 excellent parks in Avoriaz, La Chappelle is the smaller of the two with 3 sets of 3 kickers (green, blue and red) and a selection of rails and boxes. The Arare Snowpark is where you will find the professionals honing their skills. The blue kickers here start with 5 metre table tops, red kickers of 8 - 10 metre tables and two black kickers with 18 metre table tops. There is a large spine, a wall slide and an array of daunting rails. The Arare Snowpark really is for the pros, as inexperience here will lead to much more than a few bruises. The Superpipe is next to the Prodains cable car and is one of the biggest in Europe at nearly 200 metres long.

Off Piste
The Portes du Soleil is often disregarded as a haven for off-piste. This often works in its favour, as the majority of extreme skiers and powder hounds head for our more famous powder resorts. Subsequently when it snows here there is always plenty of powder to be found. If you head over the valley to Morzine, the tree runs off the Super Morzine are excellent fun as too are the Lindarets tree runs and the wide powder fields into Prodains. The Express du Fornet on the Sectuer Chavanette leads to the Canyon Du Pshott Snowzone; a large unpisted bowl with canyons, natural half pipes, cliff drops and kickers - well worth a visit after a heavy snowfall. It is imperative that you take all the safety precautions you can, shovels and probes and beepers can be purchased or hired. Speak to lift operators prior to going off piste as they will have a better idea of what is safe and what isn’t. To be extra safe professional guides can be hired who have all the local knowledge to take you to the best spots without sacrificing safety.

Cross Country Skiing
There’s nothing like cross country skiing for getting into shape...Les Gets has many different circuits to offer the cross country skier, with free access to 12 km of specialised marked tracks. If you’re willing to venture a little further afield then the whole Portes du Soleiil area offers you a staggering 200km of cross country trials. You will find ‘walking, Cross-country skiing and snowshoeing maps’ at the Tourist Office, alternatively lessons and guided excursions are available from the various ski schools, ask a member of staff for details.

It doesn’t get any easier
Vermont Ski provide our pre-booked ski & board rental service in Les Gets. Rather uniquely the ski shop is located opposite Altitude Lodge and a two minute walk across the piste. At the end of your stay just leave your equipment in the boot room. Can’t get easier than that.

Be careful of other suppliers offering great discounts online
We guarantee the quality of the equipment fitted in the comfort of your chalet and we have wrestled the price down to be extremely competitive. Others online might promise cheaper equipment but at what price ? is it available when you arrive? how far away is the shop and how do you get there ? how easy is it to change ? what happens when it breaks ? when do I have to drop the kit back ? Your time in resort is precious, don’t waste it sorting out your equipment.

Don’t forget to pre-book
It is ever so important that you book your equipment before you arrive as there is only so much quality kit in a resort to go round. Don’t worry that it might not fit perfectly or that you might need to change during the week, Vermont Ski are opposite Altitude Lodge, next to the piste and lifts. You can book equipment on my VIP SKI shortly after you have made an accommodation booking, here is a list of guide prices. Alternatively, drop us an email or call us for further guidance.

Possibly one of the most important aspects of a ski holiday, the lift pass is vital unless you plan to walk up the mountain before skiing down!

Pre-book your lift pass directly with us before you travel. Your lift passes will be delivered to your chalet before breakfast on the first morning, in plenty of time for you to make it up the first lift.
