Les Gets ski passes
If you’re unfamiliar with the area, Les Gets ski passes can seem a bit tricky to navigate. At Hunter Chalets, we live in resort year-round, so we’ve created this guide to help you choose the right ski pass. Book a Les Gets chalet or apartment with us and we will have your Les Gets ski passes ready and waiting in your accommodation when you arrive.
Les Gets is one of 12 resorts that make up the Franco-Swiss region of Portes du Soleil (one of the largest linked ski areas in the world). Choosing the right ski pass is essential for making the most of your ski holiday in Les Gets, so read on…
A guide to Les Gets ski passes
First, let’s go over exactly what and where Les Gets is. The mountain ski resort is located in the Haute-Savoie area of the French Alps. Most guests fly into Geneva in Switzerland and we can arrange a transfer to Les Gets in France, which takes around 1 hour 10 minutes.
Les Gets shares a ski area with neighbouring Morzine. While both villages have a similar traditional style, Les Gets sits 100m higher and is popular with families and great for beginners. Morzine is bigger with a more lively apres scene and is part of the Morzine-Avoriaz commune (Avoriaz being another ski resort neighbouring Morzine).
Morzine is just a few minutes’ drive from Les Gets (closer than Avoriaz) and has its own town hall and Tourism Office. They’re both connected via pistes, so it’s easy to ski between them. If you want to ski further afield you can opt for the Portes du Soleil ski pass which includes all 12 ski resorts.
2 ski passes to choose from
There is a choice of two lift passes: the full Portes du Soleil or Morzine-Les Gets.
Morzine-Les Gets ski pass
The Les Gets and Morzine ski area spans 120km. It’s completely connected and operates under one lift pass. The pass includes access to 71 runs, 47 lifts and 15 fun runs via the Chavannes Express chair lift on one side of the village and Mont Chery Ski Lift on the other. Note that you won’t be able to use the Morzine-Les Gets ski pass on the Super Morzine lift in Morzine, which takes you up to Avoriaz and further afield to Switzerland.

Which ski lifts will you be using?
There are four main ski lift areas you need to know about when visiting Les Gets ‒ Chavannes, Mont Chéry, Les Gets Bowl and Perriers & La Turche.
Located in the centre of Les Gets, Chavannes has both a gondola and a fast chair lift which takes you up to the Chavannes ski area. At the top, you’ll find ski school meeting points and a free beginner-friendly zone. Intermediates and advanced skiers are catered for too with blue, red and black runs off Chavannes Express, TC des Chavannes and the Chavannes Bowl. There’s also a ski and play area for children aged between 5-12 called the Grand Cry Territory, which has a native American Indian theme. Mountainside restaurants include La Croix Blanche and Le Yeti and there are plenty of upmarket bars and restaurants in the centre of Les Gets for apres and dinner.

Les Gets Bowl
Les Gets Bowl is a three-sided bowl located north of Chavannes. It has five chair lifts split across the eastern and western sides of the bowl which all converge at the bottom, including Ranfoilly Express and Grains D’or Express. We recommend this ski area for intermediates, as there are some lovely red and blue runs and one black called the ‘Yeti’. There’s also a great selection of restaurants to warm-up in while enjoying raclette and steaming mugs of hot chocolate.

Perriers and La Turche
Perriers / La Turche is a small ski area on the western side of Les Gets. There are two ski lifts – Express Perriers and Turche – and two main runs, which include a long red and a fun blue. Off the Turche drag lift is the amazing BBQ restaurant La Paika!

Chatel & Switzerland
Of course, we can’t forget Chatel and Switzerland as it’s not every day you get to ski two countries in one ski holiday! You’ll need the Portes du Soleil ski pass to gain access to these areas.
Chatel is a great choice for all abilities as it has a wide selection of runs at different levels, plus the option to go off-piste. A top ski piste here includes Linga, which has plenty of thrills along the steep run. There’s also an easy blue on the right-hand side.
It’s possible to ski from Les Gets to Switzerland by making your way there via Chavannes Express and Ranfoilly. You’ll then need to head to the Chamossière sector, then go via Nyon towards Morzine. Go to the Mossettes lift from Lindarets or drop over the Swiss Wall, known to be one of the most difficult downhill runs in the world (a piste that gives access from Avoriaz to Les Crozet with an incline of about 40 degrees). Alternatively, you can catch the Chavanette chair down.
If you want to save some time, you can add our 24-hour resort driver service in winter. Call or WhatsApp the team and they can pick you up from your chalet in Les Gets and drive you to Morzine to catch the Super Morzine lift. Alternatively, they can drive you to the Ardents lift near to Lac de Montriond, a bubble lift that will take you right up into Lindarets, which links to Chatel and Switzerland.
Ski passes waiting in your chalet
Once you’ve booked your Les Gets ski holiday with Hunter Chalets, our Concierge team can help with ski passes. While we offer a small discount on passes, the real benefit is having them ready and waiting the moment you arrive at your chalet. That’s one less thing to worry about and no queueing for your passes on your first day here!
There are child, youth, adult and senior passes available, with different durations available. Guests who have booked a week-long stay normally opt for one of the 6-day ski lift passes.
Don’t worry about not having the right equipment either. We can arrange ski equipment fittings and rentals from the comfort of your chalet, so there’s no waiting around in hire shops. We can book ski lessons in Les Gets for you too.
