Beyond Les Gets Chalet Holidays and Apartments in other Ski Resorts

Chalet Holidays in Other Ski Resorts

Les Gets is a dream ski resort in so many ways. But what happens when you want to explore beyond the local area? This page will help you find similar Alpine ski resorts, and find the best self-catered & catered ski holidays in those areas.

The Great Beyond: Skiing outside of Les Gets

Les Gets is famed for its picture-postcard village centre and its family-friendly skiing but, biased as we are, even we recognise that there are many other ski resorts out there with plenty to offer families, beginners and experienced skiers alike.

For something a little different...

If you're looking for the exercise and adventure of skiing but without the snow then a hiking holiday can be just the ticket. With Pinnacle Walking Holidays you can enjoy the great outdoors and meet some new friends!

Exploring the Portes du Soleil

With Les Gets nestled in its South-Western corner, and boasting no less than 650km of pistes and 197 lifts, the Portes du Soleil is a huge expanse of skiable terrain which will keep most skiers occupied for a lifetime. At the opposite end of the ski area, the approach to Torgon is a very big day's skiing away, offering new challenges and style of skiing even for those who know the region well from previous Les Gets holidays.

Portes du Soleil

With one of the world's most impressive lift infrastructures, the Portes du Soleil offers several exciting destinations, all within easy skiable distance of each other. You will find great ski holidays in all of these resorts, or you can simply ski there, have lunch, and ski back in time for afternoon tea.

Chalets & Apartments in Morzine

The nearest ski resort to Les Gets, Morzine will be familiar to many who have visited the Les Gets area before. Although at a slightly lower altitude, the resort itself is larger than Les Gets and has a little more to offer in terms of nightlife and aprés ski. Like Les Gets, Morzine has a lift infrastructure on both sides of the valley, with Les Gets to the south west and Super Morzine and Avoriaz to the north east.

Chalets & Apartments in Avoriaz

A unique destination in every sense, Avoriaz is an unmistakable and unforgettable ski resort ... once you have found it. A modern and functional ski resort with an emphasis on self-catering holiday apartments at affordable prices, Avoriaz has been designed to blend into the surrounding landscape and it does this remarkably well. To the point that it all but disappears!

Made up of jagged and angular buildings with few regular lines or silhouettes, the buildings of Avoriaz imitate the cliffs on which they sit, camouflaging themselves perfectly against the snow coated rocks beneath. Looking across from the top of Mont Chery here in Les Gets, you would not know that a whole ski resort is looking back at you until somebody pointed it out.

We will be adding information about recommended local chalet companies here in the weeks ahead. Thanks for your patience. In the mean time, have a look at our sister company's Morzine/Avoriaz property listings.

Chalets & Apartments in Châtel

Châtel has much in common with Les Gets. Although slightly smaller, it boats the same great access to great skiing, with a bubble lift straight out of the resort centre bringing the full expanse of the Portes du Soleil within comfortable reach. Also like Les Gets, Châtel is very picturesque, comprising mostly ski chalets and traditional buildings of wood and stone. An easy 90 minutes from Geneva, Châtel is an attractive destination for week-long and short breaks alike.

Other Ski Areas and Resorts

On this page, we have focused mainly on the two biggest ski areas in France, the Portes du Soleil and the Three Valleys. But, big and popular as they are, there is much to explore even beyond these vast regions. Before your bucket list of skiing can be considered 'done', here are some other ski destinations which you will almost certainly want to discover. Find your dream chalet or apartment below.

Chalets & Apartments in La Plagne

When it comes to sheer statistics, La Plagne is pretty hard to beat. It gives access to year-round glacier skiing at 3,250m with descents all the way down to 1,250m. That's one hell of a ride.

It has 225km of marked runs of its own and a double-decker cable car link to another 200km in and around neighbouring Les Arcs. Add this all together and you get the massive Paradiski area, served by its impressive 132 lifts.

Chalets & Apartments in Flaine

Established in the 1960-70s, Flaine's architecture draws heavily on Bauhaus school of design. Since that time, more traditional architectural styles have grown in prominence throughout most other resorts, making Flaine something of a standout and, arguably, a bit of a Marmite resort; some love it, some don't. Find some hidden treasures amongst Flaine's catered ski holidays.

Flaine is linked to Samoens, Morillon, Les Carroz and Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval, with 267 km of pistes in total. More information about Flaine Ski Resort ».

Chalets & Apartments in Tignes

According to the much respected Telegraph Ski Supplement, "a combination of enviable snow cover, a variety of impressive terrain and a season that lasts most of the year makes Tignes one of the most dependable winter destinations in France."

Access to the Grand Motte glacier means that Tignes ski resort only closes for ten weeks of the summer months. Otherwise, you can ski here all year round! Find out more about Tignes Ski Resort, France.

More about Skiing in the USA and Canada

Okay, this probably merits more than the couple of paragraphs we can dedicate to the subject right here, but this page wouldn't be complete if we didn't at least mention our friends across the pond.

What are the biggest differences between European and North American skiing? Well, according to Charles Leocha of USA Today, "The mountains in Europe are simply bigger - grand, jagged, rugged, inspiring and soaring. In the United States, [...] slopes seem to trace their way down what appear to be over-sized hills." Scale and vertical drop tend to be much bigger in Europe.

In defence of American skiing, we should observe a couple of areas where they certainly do have the edge. First, queueing for lifts: they have a much better system, making more efficient use of each chair or gondola, and your skis will scarcely be stepped on. Second, the attitude to the skiing: in America and Canada, skiers are there to ski - end of subject. Coffee, lunch, wine and apres ski all come second to the higher priority of racking up maximum time on the slopes.

Need to Widen the Search?

If you're looking for something very specific, or if you're looking for a late deal on a peak week such as February half term ski holiday, some of the larger chalet companies and chalet advertising sites can be a good place to start the search.

Some of these larger sites offer a service where you can explain your requirements and then have the chalet companies come to you, instead of you searching for something which might be hard to find.

The below companies offer chalets across multiple resorts, in the French Alps and across the globe.
