There has been huge investment in the Grand Massif lift system over the last few seasons which continues. This has opened up new ski slopes and is helping to reduce queues at previous bottlenecks.
Yes, half-term is busy but isn’t everywhere in France and Italy during these periods.
This is such an extensive ski area close to Geneva and it’s very possible to drive to Les Gets and ski the Portes de Soleil and Chamonix if you wish.
A really pretty typical working French village with lots for non-skiers to do with lovely valley walks and an extensive animation programme during the season.
Yes, the lift to 1600 can get busy especially if there are lots of skiers coming for the day from Geneva on the weekend. However, there are plans to build a new lift to alleviate this in the next few years.
We have been coming here for 23 years and still love it today.
We’ve seen many changes, most for the better and yes, a few more manners from some wouldn’t go amiss but the same can be said for all nationalities.
We’ll keep returning especially for the skiing and amazing summer.
