Winter | Skiing
The ski area consists mainly of blue and red runs (beginner and intermediate). There is an area known as “The Bowl” into which numerous ski runs and chairlifts feed. Also in this area are the resort’s most easily accessible black runs: ‘Yeti’, accessed via the resort’s slowest chairlift, La Rosta, and Myrtilles accessed by the Grains d’Or Express. Mont Chéry hosts the majority of black runs, also having numerous red runs, with just one blue and no green pistes. It is the “locals’” mountain, Les Chavannes being the tourist side. There are several good spots for off-piste skiing and snowboarding, the best of which are: to the sides of ‘Yeti’, the long black run off Chamossiere and also by taking a short hike from the top of the Ranfoilly lift. the latter has been rated as one of the best off-piste powder bowls in Europe (although there is very often a medium chance of avalanches).
Summer | Biking
Mountain biking in the summer. Les Gets hosts many downhill mountain biking events. There are two distinct downhill mountain bike areas, one on each side of the village. The downhill mountain bike run on Mt Chéry has been used in the Mountain Bike World Cups in 1996, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2002, 2003, and in the Mountain Bike World Championships in 2004.
Les Gets has an 18-hole par 70 golf course 5,264 metres (17,270 ft) long, which overlooks Mont Blanc. In the winter it forms part of the pistes.
