Les Gets Bike Park and mountain biking region is set in the French alps. Like Morzine It forms one of the many MTB resorts that make up the Portes du Soleil area. It's great for downhill, freeride and XC. There are 90km of tracks of which 12 are Downhill specific trails.

In terms of grading (across disciplines) there are three black, seven red, nine blue and three green mountain bike trails. Being slap bang in the centre of the Portes du Soleil area you get wider access to 650km of trails. Hence it is popular. The only downside is it can get busy. In April 2015 it had a free pump track set up in the town.

The Trails 

  • Les Gets is served by 90 km of slopes with 12 downhill. 1 freeride and 6 Cross-country (XC) trails. There is also 1 Jump Park, 1 mini Jump Park, a Pump Track, a a North Shore zone, a 4X track, a Kids Zone, a coaching track and a Freestyle airbag. 
  • The Les Gets bike park is famous for its technical trail features like the drop off from a wooden hut, steep descents, tight berms, jumps and doubles over obstacles.
  • The Chavannes side of Les Gets has the  Downhill des Chavannes descent with kickers, table tops and berms which culminates in 4X at the bottom. There are also some green tracks that are more family friendly too and a skills area that you can practise jumps and cornering. 

Other Stuff

  • Lifts are open generally mid to late June to September.
  • Pass'Portes du Soleil is an annual event that takes in many of the regions of the Portes du Soleil region.

I've used Les Gets a few times now as an Alps holiday base. Once to do the Portes du Soleil and then back a few years after just to redo the best bits. It's a great base and a neat town. Close also to it's sister site Morzine. The trails here are grin inducing and fast. It's hard not to fall in love with the place.

If you're looking for somewhere to stay for a week or longer that is going to still be offering new trails to explore come the end of the week, then this is the place for you.  The Les Gets Airline is worth a look but definitely more of a pro plus run!

Good Points
<div>Les Gets is fantastic for Downhillers with several man made courses featuring berms, banks, tunnels, jumps and northshore, the area also appeals to the Cross Country bikers with a staggering 400 miles of bike trails offering some of the best Cross Country and Down Hill Mountain Biking in the Alps.&nbsp;</div>
Bad Points
<div>Some of the trails have high usage and therefore get worn down quickly with lots of breaking bumps. &nbsp;There are a team of people actively working on the trails to repair and build new trails.</div>
