Quick Guide to Morzine and Les Gets
Morzine and Les Gets are part of the Haute Savoie region in between Mont Blanc and Lake Geneva.
The ski areas make up part of the Portes du Soliel, which is actually one of the largest linked ski areas in the world! With the area stretching over Switzerland and France there is no chance of getting bored, in total you can cover 14 resorts and 650km of marked pistes! In fact - many of the piste maps detail a circuit of the whole area than can be completed in a day (if you get your skates on!).
If you want a real challenge, the well known ‘Swiss Wall’ accessible from Avoriaz, is a very steep off piste run crossing the French Swiss border, it tends to be covered with very large moguls and has a 40% incline – not for the faint hearted, thankfully an option to take the chair down is also available!
Morzine and Lets Gets are traditional Savoyarde villages, charming chalets and hotels, horse drawn carriages and more artisanal cheese and meat that you can dream of, plus there is a plethora of shopping, top restaurants and bars.
Les Gets offers a well laid out and easily accessible ski area perfect for beginners and young families, with plenty of greens and blues allowing learners to really feel like they are exploring the mountain rather than being restricted to the baby slope.
Our insider tip would be to try out Mont Chery, the hidden gem of the resort offers an escape from the busier pistes of Les Gets, simply cross through the town to take the Mont Chery telecabine. Although the lifts are slightly more dated there are some fantastic rolling reds, blacks and blues, plus a mini park!
This year the resort will opening around the 22nd of December 2019 and closure will be around the 14th of April 2020, however the Avoriaz ski area will be slightly longer than this given its height.
Morzine and Les Gets are also very popular resorts to visit in the summer, their numerous mountain biking trails and parks have attracted the likes of big competitions such as Crankworx (the European leg of the World Series VTT) bringing a hive of activity to resort. The famous climbs such as the Col du Joux Plane ensure Morzine is often on the route for the Tour De France - making it a haven for road bikers. In addition to this there are hiking trails, paragliding, rafting and climbing to name a few activities that can be undertaken in the summer, not to mention relaxing by the lovely Lake Montriond just a few minutes away from both Morzine and Les Gets.
