The delights on offer in Les Gets make it a travel destination that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. While younger skiers have a lot to enjoy here, it is also perfect for more mature winter sports fans as well.

A mixed crowd of skiers come here, with people of all different ages loving the different ways to have a good time in Les Gets. If you are looking to live the high life and believe that age is nothing but a number then the following are some of the best reasons for heading to Les Gets.


Ski at the Right Level for You

Maybe you are a highly experienced skier looking for fresh challenges to stimulate you. Alternatively, it may be that you are just starting out on this as a new hobby and want to get going easily without too much stress or hassle.

Either way, this is a magnificent place to get out on the snow to ski. The fact that Les Gets give you access to the giant Portes du Soleil ski area means that you can find the perfect piste for your current level of ability.

This linked ski area has over 650 km (which is more than 400 miles) of slopes for you to try out when you get here. In this way, you can head out to a different section every day of the trip if you want as much variety as possible.

Even just heading out to more remote slopes on one of the area’s many ski lifts will give you a new way of seeing the area and trying out new pistes at the same time. If you are an adventurous sort of traveller then you won’t want to restrict yourself to just one part of the ski area anyway.

Whether you want to get to grips with the basics or really push yourself on to the next level, you can certainly find the right spot on which to do it while you are here. Of course, if you keep coming back time after time then you can slowly start to sample all of the slopes and discover which are your favourites.


Get Great Accommodation

As we get older, most of us like the idea of adding a touch of extra quality to the trips that we make. If you want to relax in luxurious surroundings then you will find an impressive array of options to pick from here in lovely Les Gets.

For instance, you might be tempted to stay in a quality hotel when you visit this marvellous ski resort. There are some excellent hotels to choose from here and the best ones give you everything you need for a tremendously relaxing break with no worries.

Other options include chalets and apartments, which can make for a fantastically independent break. There are some great chalets and apartments in and around Les Gets, with some of them offering wonderful views and a nice range of facilities.

Choosing the right type of accommodation for your trip will give you a fabulous base from which to explore the area. Perhaps you will want to stay close to the best restaurants or bars or else where it is easy to get out to the pistes quickly each day.


Enjoy an Amazing Culinary Experience

No matter what age you are, the food you eat can add up to a big part of the overall holiday experience. However, it seems fair to say that more mature skiers often get even more pleasure out of eating well while away.

The good news in this respect is that Les Gets is a ski resort that is packed with great places to eat. Among the restaurants well worth trying here are Les Copeaux, Brasserie La Taniere and La Pela.

Quite simply, there are few things in life as exciting as going for a day of skiing and then following it up with a tremendous meal in one of these eateries. If you love eating fine food in world class settings then you will love the options that you find when you are here on a trip.

Even if you don’t normally pay all that much attention to what you eat when on holiday, you will discover some amazing options here that put a big smile on your face each time that you eat out.

The range of restaurants in town means that you can also choose from French meals or international dishes, giving you a great variety in what you eat each day.


Find the Perfect Type of Nightlife

It is wrong to think that only young skiers can enjoy the thriving après ski scene at Les Gets. However, perhaps the key for more mature visitors is that there is plenty of variety to choose from here.

This means that even the most demanding party lover can find somewhere that suits them perfectly here. A good example comes with the Bar Bush, where you can enjoy an English pub type of experience in a busy bar.

Another après ski sport worth taking into account is at Le Pub Irlandais. As the name suggests, this is an Irish pub and it is a fine place to get a few drinks and some great company. You might also want to spend some time in the Le George wine bar. This place sells food and also offers a great place to sample some fabulous French wine in a quality setting.


Make It Easy

Finally, none of us wants our long awaited ski trips to be difficult to organise. No matter how busy your life is, there is a lot to be said for going on ski breaks that are simple and easy to sort out. In this respect, you will love the fact that a trip to Les Gets is incredibly simple to arrange. To get started you just need to look online for the deals that might interest you.

Once you see a deal that looks good then it is simple to book the whole thing on the internet for the dates that suit you. By doing this, you will be ready for your trip in next to no time and without spending too much on it either.

This ease continues when you head out there, as it is a lot simpler to get to Les Gets then you might fear that it will be. Indeed, if you are travelling across to the French Alps from the UK then it is only going to be a short flight to Geneva Airport and then a transfer of an hour or so to the resort.

All of this ensures that you don’t need to make any great changes to your life in order to make a trip to Les Gets whenever you feel like it. Just choose the dates that suit you best and you will soon be having a wonderful time in this world class ski resort.

Fun seekers of all ages will find a warm and welcoming ski resort here, where a great time is virtually guaranteed. If you want to have the time of your life in Les Gets then it doesn’t matter a jot how many candles you blew out on your last birthday cake.
