Organise your Airport Transfers, Ski Extras & In-Resort Services

Book your Flights

The nearest and most convenient airport is Geneva, just over an hour from Les Gets resort. The main provider of budget flights from the UK is EasyJet, but British Airways also offer regular flights from London Heathrow, along with one or two others.

It is also possible to drive to Les Gets. The village is about 9 hours' drive from Calais and, if chosen carefully, the route will be all motorways until the final 30 minutes or so.

The final option is to travel by train. The best option is to get the Eurostar to Paris, then the TGV to Geneva (at lightning speed!). After a 15-minute train ride to the airport, you can take a transfer bus from Geneva Airport to Les Gets. See below for details of transfer companies.

Order your Liftpass

Liftpasses are available from the main liftpass office in Les Gets village centre, and at most of the major chairlifts throughout the ski area. In some cases, your chalet company might arrange this for you so you don't have to go and collect it (this service is usually free of charge, too).

Liftpass prices vary according to the time of the season, the age of the skier, the time-duration of the liftpass (in days), and the resorts included. Click to find out more about Les Gets liftpass prices.

Plan your Time in Resort: Eating, Drinking, Relaxing & Family Time

There is so much to enjoy in Les Gets besides the skiing and snowboarding. Once you're in resort, you'll want to know where to eat lunch, where to go for a drink, and what to do as a group or family when you're not skiing.

Enjoy the Les Gets Skiing

In the final days before your departure, you'll be checking the snow forecast and looking at the Les Gets webcams, hoping for the best possible snow conditions. If you've not been to Les Gets before, you're in for a treat.

It's part of the biggest ski area in Europe - 650kms of pistes in two countries. It's ideal for all experience levels - local slopes are gentle and wide for beginners and families; just an extra chairlift away lie plenty of challenges for even the most advanced skiers. It's perfect for families, with a section of the mountain set aside for children only. It's a dream for photographers - a picture-postcard resort, full of unspoilt Savoyarde charm.

Les Gets is part of the Portes du Soleil ski area, which at 650kms of pistes is europe's largest. It's connected to Morzine, Avoriaz, Chatel, St Jean d'Aulps, La Chapelle d'Abondance, Morgins, Torgins, Champoussins, Champery & Les Crozets. You can ski across into Switzerland and back all in the one day. With this scale on your door there is plenty for all levels and all styles of skier & snowboarder.

The Local Area lift pass covers Les Gets & Morzine. 120kms of pistes, plenty for beginners & intermediates. The Full Area Lift Pass covers the whole 650kms.

Generally we'd recommend the local area for beginners, lower intermediates, and for those with more limited time (e.g. if you've to pick up children from ski school at lunchtime.)

For higher intermediates and advanced skiers & snowboarders then the full area lift pass opens up a whole world of skiing and we'd defintely recommend it. For the cruising intermediate then you can ski village to village on what feels like an infinate collection of blue and red pistes, having lunch in a different resort each day. For the advanced then there's no shortage - from off piste decents to the infamous "Swiss Wall" (reputed to be one of Europe's hardest mogul runs), you'll find more than can be touched in even a whole week of first ski lifts until last.
