The area hosts many festivals, competitions, and other high profile events, spanning over 12 separate ski stations and offers excellent skiing for all abilities leading over into Switzerland for unrivalled variety and miles of piste!

The Snow Park is a little tamer than its big brother up in Avoriaz. It’s perfect for beginner to intermediate riders with easy jumps and a very relaxed atmosphere. There’s a lively café culture, restaurants, snack bars, boutique shopping and an open-air ice rink – just one of the many highlights that get Les Gets on the family favourites list year after year.When the early birds have turned in, the resort’s après-ski kicks off and keeps going into the early hours, every night, all season long.

Les gets for beginners

With its excellent learner slopes, well priced ski schools and friendly, non-pressured atmosphere, Les Gets is one of the most suitable resorts in which to learn. Ski or board basics can easily be mastered in a 3 day weekend with the English speaking instructors on offer.

Les Gets the resort 

The Après-Ski and nightlife in Les Gets is surprisingly lively, and with about 16 good bars and a nightclub, the resort will keep going into the early hours. There is also a good café culture for the not-so-hedonistic among you and of course great restaurants too. For families there are plenty of off-snow activities.

Ski Weekend les gets - les gets Resort Guide

undefined

This lovely looking alpine village has been popular with boarders and skiers for decades and for a very good reason. The lively vibrant atmosphere combined with being part of ‘The Portes Du Soleil’ – the second largest area in France - gives the perfect ingredients for a holiday to remember. Below you will find some of our personal favourite places in and around Les Gets. 


Where to Eat?

Being the quintessential French resort, the restaurants and food are much what you’d expect.  

Vieux Chene: Typical local dishes, good service in a central location.

Taniere: Located near to main ski lift. Heated terrace, great with kids and does great moules-frites and salads.        

Tourbillion: Very good quality Savoyard cuisine, at affordable prices.

Le Flambeau: Small but perfectly formed! Meats and fondues are great! There are also pizzas to takeaway.  

Le Tyrol: Warm friendly feel with cosy interior. Try the hot stone or fondue. Very popular restaurant.

Schuss: Situated on the main street, great for big group bookings when the object is consuming vast quantities of pizzas and red wine.


Where to Party?

The Irish Bar: Themed evenings, live bands and drinks promotions 4-6 pm.
            
The Black Bear: Located above the Irish Bar. A lovely cosy bar with plenty of snug alcoves to warm up in. Great bar snacks.

Bar Bush: 
Brits seem to love this place. Happy hour is between 5 and 7pm.

Zebra Bar: Some brilliant live bands playing until 9ish when the DJs take over. 

undefinedBar Canadie: Civilised & fun. Fantastic cheese plates to share over a pint with friends.

Boomerang: Lively, down to earth Australian hospitality. Is on the main street, part of the hotel of the same name.

L’Igloo: If your legs can take more, get your dancing feet down to L’Igloo for some late night grooves.
