Les Gets is world-renowned as an all-round great place to ski. It caters to all levels of skier and snowboarder and has some rich ski-in / ski-out access, which makes it particularly attractive to families. The clever folk over at Les Gets HQ know this, so they’re always investing in their family-based infrastructure. Here’s what they’ve got planned for you and your kids this winter.
Les Gets has great boardercross runs, and what better way to make the mini-boardercross more fun than to add a videopark? So save yourself the stress of trying to film your child on skis, keeping them in shot and focus, while trying to look where you’re going and ski yourself. simply scan your (or your child’s) lift pass and Les Gets’ video cameras will do all the hard work for you. Then you can watch the video online later or have it sent to your phone. Genius. There’s also a parallel slalom videopark at the base of the Perrieres lift, so this completes the set.
Timed Parallel Slalom on Mont Chéry
If you have older kids and you’ve been on a few ski holidays together, this is the one for you. Over in Les Gets’ hidden paradise, Mont Chéry, a parallel slalom course awaits. Your kids can go head-to-head and battle it out for the title of fastest skier on the trip with this amazing timed race course. And the adults can race too, of course!
Selfie Spot at the Top of the New Ranfoilly Chairlift (Kids Optional)
You may have already heard the news of the new Ranfoilly chairlift. The old four-seater is being replaced with the new and super-speedy Ranfoilly Express. It will be able to transport 3300 people per hour and will move at 6m per second, phew! The new express will also have a covered area for loading, as well as a more spacious unloading area once you get to the top. Furthermore, a new piste will be added to the top section to make the difficult run down more fun for less-experienced skiers and snowboarders. The same incredible views of Mont Blanc will still be visible from the chairlift, and even better, there will be an automatic selfie spot at the top of the lift! Just get into position in front of the landmark mountain, get your picture taken, then view and share it online later.
