Les Gets Ski Resort
Pretty, charming and unspoilt, the old farming village of Les Gets has something special to offer every visitor, with a variety of skiing to suit all levels, but where this magical resort truly excels is in the service that it provides to families. The resort is a proud owner of the ‘Famille Plus Montagne’ label, which means that the needs of younger guests have been carefully considered. Facilities include a medical service for minor injuries, and events, such as carpentry workshops where children are taught to make wooden models, are geared towards providing them with a safe and exciting stay.
The resort has top notch ski schools, several of which have won awards, and extremely good nursery slopes are located in the centre of the village. It’s also a great place for adult learners; try the British Alpine Ski and Snowboard School which offers group and private lessons.
One of the many draws of Les Gets is that it’s reachable within an hour’s transfer from Geneva. The other draws include conveniently laid out lifts, minimal queues and un-crowded slopes – which makes a change from most French resorts which tend to get very busy. The quiet slopes can become a little less quiet on the weekends due to the fact that the resort is within easy reach of Geneva and Lyon but it still won’t be jam-packed. On the downside, at 1172m altitude, snow is not guaranteed at village level, however, there is much more skiing and fun to be had up the mountain at Chavannes including more nursery slopes.
