Les Gets Update: New for Winter 17/18
Our new residents in Les Gets will be delighted by the volume of investment in local lift infrastructure ahead of the approaching winter season.
The installation of a much-talked-about ‘teleporter’ link between the Chavannes on one side of the valley and Mont Chery mid-station on the other is still very much up in the air – pun intended! The new lift connection would make it easier for skiers and snowboarders to explore the incredible terrain in one of the Portes du Soleil’s quietest corners, breathing new life into the bars and restaurants on the mountain. Our Annapurna and Kinabalu developments sit at the base of Mont Chery and you can ski within metres of your luxury apartment.
However, the new link divides opinion across the resort. The ‘teleporter’ will be suspended 50 metres above the rooftops of Les Gets, a village we all consider to be one of the most charming in the Alps. On both environmental and cost grounds, many believe the development makes little sense. We will of course keep you updated on developments.
Meanwhile, fans of Les Gets’ Ranfolly Bowl are in for a treat this winter. A staggering €9.5 million has been spent on replacing the Ranfolly chairlift for the coming season. The original 4-man chair was built in 1986. It’s replacement is a 6-man, capable of carrying 3300 skiers per hour.
Lift Pass Prices & Opening Dates
Subject to snow conditions, the ski lifts of Les Gets will whir into life on Saturday 23rd December 2017 and the season ends on Sunday 15th April 2018.
Les Gets shares its ski area with Morzine and you have two options when it comes to purchasing your lift passes. There’s the Les Gets – Morzine pass, which covers the lifts and pistes across the two resorts, or the larger Portes du Soleil pass, offering access to a staggering 650km of piste.
Book your holiday lift passes before 30th September and you’ll enjoy a 15% discount. New for this winter, adult lift passes now include a free child’s ski pass for the entire Portes du Soleil network when children are aged 12 or under.
Les Gets continues to be a property investment hot spot. If you’d like further information on our current developments, please contact our Les Gets sales team.
