Les Gets has relatively easy access to rest of the vast Portes du Soleil ski area which boasts variety of skiing from relaxing intermediate runs to the most challenging blacks and off-piste. In the immediate Les Gets ski area there are some 60 pistes. Les Gets queues are also short compared to many resorts and you can hit the slopes very quickly.
Best Places To Eat and Drink
Après-ski in Les Gets reflects the laid-back, family friendly atmosphere of the resort itself. There is a good selection of restaurants, lively but civilised bars and a nightclub or two for those looking for a drink or two before heading back to a luxury ski chalet.
Start the evening at Le Pub Irlandias with its home-brewed beer and delicious tapas or the nearby cosy Bear Bara. Other good options are Zebra Bar, Bar Bush, Bar Canadie and the popular bar at the Boomerang Hotel.
Many of the restaurants offer a good Savoyard-style menu and places to try include Vieux Chene, Taniere, Tourbillion and the Ferme de Montagne. If you are staying in a self catered luxury chalet and taking your children out for dinner but don’t think the local fayre is going to be a success, there are a number of pizza restaurants including the Tyrol and the Schuss.
L’Igloo is probably the best local nightclub but if you are looking to really hit the late night hot spots, just ask your chauffeur to take you over to nearby Morzine.
Many of the mountain restaurants are averagely priced and of a decent standard. At the top of the Rosta chair is La Rossetaz restaurant, which is locally famous for its baguettes. There is also the Taniere at the bottom of the Chavanette chair lift, which has a varied menu and offers reasonable prices.
