Cheap ski hire Les Gets
Les Gets is one of the 12 resorts that makes up the Portes du Soleil skiing region on the Swiss-French boarder, and at only about an hour from Geneva it’s one of the shortest transfers in the Alps. Les Gets itself is a small, traditional, village, with cosy chalet-style restaurants and accommodation.
Though the après ski here tends to be largely quiet, bars such as the Black Bear and Igloo chalet club stay open until late and are good places for winding down after the slopes. The recently reopened Le Chasse Montagne is well worth a visit, as are many of the eateries around offering traditional Savoyard food, such as the gratin de crozets a la savoyarde on offer at the Alpine Tavern, or the tartiflette that makes A Pela such a pleasure to eat at.
The 12th-century dairy farming village retains much of its original Savoyard charm and has won multiple awards for its excellent childcare and junior skiing facilities, providing a great base for families wanting to develop skills, or parents looking to gain some freedom to enjoy the famous Portes du Soleil.
