Sledging is about as fun as it gets when it comes to snow sports. Even a simple "shovel" sled and a decent slope can be amazingly fun. Les Gets offers some great sledding opportunities. All the designated sledging areas are on the Chavannes side of the valley with most in the Chavannes area and one being in the Perriers area.
A sled or sledge is a basic vehicle with "runners" similar to skies for sliding across snow. Sled or sledge can typically be used interchangeably. Americans tend to use "sled" more and the British tend to use "sledge" more. Some people use "sled" to describe a smaller unit for moving humans and "sledge" to describe a larger unit for transporting goods and freight. A toboggan is basically a sled/sledge without runners.
There are five designated sledging areas in Les Gets. Two are right next to the village centre, two up the mountain a bit and one at the edge of the village. None of these are on the Mont Chery side of the valley.
Note: Sledging is not permitted on the ski areas during day or night.
If you are a guest in one of our chalets then sledges are provided as standard. We have a number of different designs depending on the chalet you are staying at. If there is something specific you are looking for please let us know and we will do what we can to facilitate you.
If you are not staying in one of your chalets then we would suggest you try one of the many ski rental and sports shops in the village. They typically have sledges for rent for a small fee.
