Snowboarding in Les Gets
Les Gets is foremost a family orientated resort which has a great selection of terrain. The resort is well suited to beginners and intermediate riders as the ski slopes are generally very wide, open and cruisy.
For more advanced snowboarders there is plenty of good off piste to explore throughout the resort. In addition, the Mont Chery area is home to a great snowpark and this is in the sun for most of the day. Mont Chery is always very quiet, therefore a great place to head to avoid the crowds, with both south facing and north facing slopes.
Intermediate and advanced riders will also love the boardercross course on the Chavannes area. Open to all, this 500m course was built in honour of Olympic silver medalist Deborah Anthonioz. Deborah is from Les Gets and this boardercross course is one of the few permanent ones in France.
Les Gets is situated on the edge of the Portes du Soleil ski area which links 2 countries and combines 14 ski resorts. The slopes are well linked to those of Morzine. From Morzine you can access Avoriaz and beyond to the rest of the Portes du Soleil, as a result giving you a huge amount of terrain to cover on your snowboard.
