About Les Gets
Les Gets is a commune in the Haute-Savoie department in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region in south-eastern France.
Les Gets has its origins in the 11th century and its name is derived from the local dialect words "gitte" or "giette" which mean the corridors used to send logs rapidly down the hillside.
Les Gets is an excellent Alpine resort which gives out a very French vibe, partially because of the alluring food and wine shops found in its centre.
Despite its relatively low altitude (1172m), Les Gets is well known for its exceptional snow record every year.
Les Gets is a renowned family-friendly resort that offers many engaging activities besides skiing, which is why the resort is equally popular during the summer season.
Moreover, the resort is the owner of the "Familie Plus Montagne" label, which means that the children's needs are carefully considered. As an example, Les Gets hosts a themed ski area for children.
Another great thing about Les Gets is that while it offers excellent slopes, it tends to be less busy than most French ski resorts.
Skiing in Les Gets
Les Gets, which shares its ski pistes with Morzine, offers 120 km of mostly beginner and intermediate ski slopes, serviced by 47 ski lifts.
In Les Gets you will find very convenient nursery slopes which will keep the kids busy and happy while you can enjoy the excellent red slopes that the village has to offer.
For the most advanced skiers or for those who think that 120 km of slopes are not enough, Les Gets is part of the Portes du Soleil - one of the widest ski domain in the world with more than 650 km of slopes.
As one of the largest ski area in the world, Les Portes du Soleil offers 34 green pistes, 119 blue pistes, 101 red pistes and 32 black pistes, serviced by 200 ski lifts.
Les Gets is a dream for mixed-ability groups. While the local slopes are very beginner-friendly, the most experienced of the group can ski to Switzerland and back in one day or head for the snow-parks of Avoriaz with the Portes du Soleil ski pass.
Furthermore, the resort has very good ski schools, some of which have also won awards.
While Les Gets has been recognized and prized as a very family-friendly ski resort, it still has a lively nightlife.
As a mid-sized ski resort, there are many pubs and bars where one can warm-up and relax after a snowy day.
In the summer, there are many activities in Les Gets, from discos to the "Pot de Bienvenue" (a welcome drink) on a Monday evening.
Live bands often play on the stage in the centre of the town.
The outdoor ice rink of Les Gets is located right in the heart of the village and it is definitely a favourite among Les Gets tourists.
The ice rink also offers a toboggan rental for kids and the possibility to organize an ice party.
Mechanical Music Museum
The Museum hosts an impressive number of over 750 mechanical musical instruments.
The Museum has a rich history as it has been opened in 1988. However, it has recently doubled its collection and the tour content has been redesigned.
