Les Gets in France Resort Guide
Les Gets lies within the Porte du Soleil circuit, the world's biggest lift and or bus linked winter playground which joins eight resorts in France and seven in Switzerland. Les Gets (1170m), too, is a traditonal farming village which has expanded steadily since it started in 1937. It retains a good reputation for producing some of the better powder, some excellent challenging off piste and otherwise has extensive terrain for skiers of all abilities. Les Gets has replaced the diesel generators on its lift system with the eco friendly solar panels . With so much sunshine in this region this was a logical step and instead of being concerned about being so low in altitude and thus running out of snow it has used the sunshine to good effect . However, Les Gets' height isn't the only factor in getting and keeping it's snow - grassy 'pasture pistes' need very little snow to make them skiable, many runs are north facing or tree lined, which also helps, and the area benefits from the Mont Blanc Effect.
Accomodation & Après Ski
Les Gets has a relatively laid-back après ski scene. There are still some fantastic places to relax, including the Black Bear Bar and the Irish Pub, which offer charming decor and amazing views. L’Anka is a small tapas bar that is well worth a look, offering amazing Spanish food and a mouth-watering drinks menu. There is an ice rink in the centre of the village, while snowmobiling and hot air balloon rides can also be arranged.
If you are looking to relax after a day on the slopes, the Les Gets Beauty Salon and Wellness Centre will be the perfect place to soothe aches and pains, with a wide range of treatments available along with a swimming pool, jacuzzis and saunas.
