Les Gets and Morzine have been busy with new developments over the summer, in particular to upgrade access to Chamossière – which has some of the most challenging slopes on the Morzine side.

A new six-pack is being installed to the top of Chamossière, above the main Morzine slopes, replacing an old triple chair and a draglift. It will cut travel time to 5-7 minutes, and should help to reduce waiting times at Le Grand Pré – a busy link for ‘traffic’ moving between the two ski areas.

At Les Gets, the Chavannes gondola has received an upgrade. The base station has been reworked to offer access on one level and new cabins installed – keeping their distinctive red colour, we’re told.

To make life easier for part-time skiers and beginners, the resort is also introducing a four-hour consecutive lift pass – replacing the former half-day one – that you can start at any time during the day. New all-in beginner packages will also be made available to encourage use of the recently expanded nursery slopes on Chavannes too.

And if you’re already a confident skier or boarder looking for a bit of extra fun, Les Gets will offer a new boardercross course on Mont-Chéry next season too; it is supposed to have been influenced by Olympic silver medallist snowboarder in Whistler, Deborah Anthonioz!
