Les Gets is a pleasant farming village, which has grown in to one of the world’s top resorts apparently without noticing. Picturesque and relaxed, it has neither the sometimes oppressive enthusiasm for health and fitness that some of the high altitude French purpose built centres promote, nor the pre-occupation with glitz that attracts the soulless money-obsessed to others.
Instead, it’s charming, relaxed, and full of its own unique character and ambience. How many other resorts can offer a museum of mechanic music and animated mannequins or free excursions to the local cheese farm? For added convenience, the “Maison des Gets” encompassing the Lift Society, the Events Society, the Tourist Office, the nursery, town hall and lift ticket sales desk So clients will easily find all the information they need in one place.
The resort is close to Morzine, six kilometres (four miles) away by road and also the main lift-linked destination over the Pleney mountain. Both are on the huge Portes du Soleil circuit and it’s possible to strike out in most directions on skis with a regional pass, or just stay local with a Les Gets-Morzine only ticket.
Les Gets’ long history as a winter sports resort is proven by its status in being the location of the first Ecole du Ski Français which opened here in 1940. Don’t get the idea that this is some quaint old skiing back water either though, there’s been heavy investment in recent years in a series of state of the art lifts.
