We are family of eight who have been coming to Les Porte du Soleil since 1998 to Ski, mountain bike, swim in the lakes, walk and enjoy French food and stunning mountain scenery. This is our second chalet having moved from a smaller one in Morzine. We love the area and find that it caters for all ages and interests (I now have 3 grandchildren who love coming here).

LES GETS SKI AREA
From Les Gets village centre, you can ski Les Gets from a choice of two ski areas. On one side there’s Mont Chery (some of the most challenging slopes and usually quiet) with its sumptuous views of Mont Blanc, and on the other is Chavannes, with access to 650 km of ski-runs and the other resorts in the Portes du Soleil. In order that skiers can cross the village on skis, a white way is built every winter for skiers. It’s actually a snow-covered strip of road that serpents between chalets, letting people cross easily from one side of the mountain to the other, without taking their skis off.
LES GETS BEGINNERS
Les Gets is well situated for beginners with good nursery slopes in the village as well as more snowsure ones up at La Chavannes. There is a special area
including play facilities, reserved for beginners and children.
The “Espace des Mappys” beginners’ ski area, is a fantastic innovation in Les Gets. It is free of charge and provides the perfect environment to learn to ski safely, protected from faster more confident skiers. Easily accessible from the top of the Chavannes bubble lift, this beginners’ zone is in a calm, safe area just beside the main ski slopes. It has 2 moving carpets and 2 towropes on a gentle beginners’ slope.
LES GETS INTERMEDIATES
Intermediates have wide cruising runs from La Ranfolly and from the top of Le Pleney down to Morzine. There are some excellent reds on Mont Chery. Portes du Soleil has extensive intermediate slopes with big lift networks.
LES GETS EXPERTS
For the more advanced there are also good slopes on Mont Chery, on the other side of the resort. Experts will find good steep runs over the back of Mont Chery. More intimate, it is ideal for the more reflective skier and the perfect environment for powder skiing. The runs are mainly red and black and there are also two slalom
runs and a snowpark with an airbag. You can find off-piste opportunities on Chamossière.
