Les Gets Potters

Anouk and Nathalie, two Getoise farmer/potter sisters are running beginners’ pottery workshops at the Ferme de la Sarre.
Children of 12 are dextrous enough to use the potters’ wheel and Anouk will teach them traditional pottery turning techniques. The end results are the product
of the imagination and skill of each child - whether a bowl, a pot etc
Children under 12 (from 6 years old) learn a different type of pottery. They can feel the clay between their fingers as they knead it, play with it and model and sculpt it into imaginative shapes. They will learn the Colombin technique of moulding pieces of clay together to create shapes. So younger children too can make little models or their own bowls, plates … anything that sparks their imagination!
The goal is for each child to leave with their own finished piece of pottery (fired by the potters) at the end of their holiday.
Price €20/person
Duration: 1 hour. Reservation required.

In nearby Avoriaz, Aquariaz is a brand new indoor/outdoor waterpark/swimming pool (30 mins drive)


142 Routes des Rennes
74110 Avoriaz

Phone: +33(0)4 50 74 24 42

Aquariaz has been designed as an aquatic paradise in the mountains featuring lush vegetation and rocks: a river with variable gentle current, a slidewinder (aquatic halfpipe), a water playhouse, a paddling pool, a large pool with climbing walls, massage benches and the must: an open-air spa heated to 34°C! This type of water park is found nowhere else in the mountains and features a 'hybrid' concept with natural tropical vegetation in mountain surroundings.


It is made up of three different worlds:

•    The first world, Water Playhouse, is for younger children and features geysers and pouring-water play equipment including water slides, water guns and a tipping bucket that pours out tens of litres of water at a time. This extends into a large paddling pool.

•    The second world, the Slidewinder, is for the most adventurous bathers who are looking for big thrills and an adrenaline buzz. More than 10 metres up, you sit in a rubber tube and slide down a halfpipe

•    The third world, in the central pool for bathers of all ages, is made up of three sections:
- A gently flowing river with water games (bubbles, jets and faster and slower sections) with two areas of bubble-massage seats along the way.
- A swimming pool, 1.5 metres (5 feet) deep.
- A 1.5m (5ft) deep pool below a climbing wall that extends for its entire length.


And not forgetting the outdoor Jacuzzi® with its uninterrupted view of the valley.

From Les Gets village centre, you can ski Les Gets from a choice of two ski areas. On one side there’s Mont Chery (some of the most challenging slopes and usually quiet) with its sumptuous views of Mont Blanc, and on the other is Chavannes, with access to 650 km of ski-runs and the other resorts in the Portes du Soleil. In order that skiers can cross the village on skis, a white way is built every winter for skiers. It’s actually a snow-covered strip of road that serpents between chalets, letting people cross easily from one side of the mountain to the other, without taking their skis off.



Les Gets is well situated for beginners with good nursery slopes in the village as well as more snowsure ones up at La Chavannes. There is a special area
including play facilities, reserved for beginners and children.

The “Espace des Mappys” beginners’ ski area, is a fantastic innovation in Les Gets. It is free of charge and provides the perfect environment to learn to ski safely, protected from faster more confident skiers. Easily accessible from the top of the Chavannes bubble lift, this beginners’ zone is in a calm, safe area just beside the main ski slopes. It has 2 moving carpets and 2 towropes on a gentle beginners’ slope.


Intermediates have wide cruising runs from La Ranfolly and from the top of Le Pleney down to Morzine. There are some excellent reds on Mont Chery. Portes du Soleil has extensive intermediate slopes with big lift networks.



For the more advanced there are also good slopes on Mont Chery, on the other side of the resort. Experts will find good steep runs over the back of Mont Chery. More intimate, it is ideal for the more reflective skier and the perfect environment for powder skiing. The runs are mainly red and black and there are also two slalom
runs and a snowpark with an airbag.
You can find off-piste opportunities on Chamossière.



Snowboarding in Les Gets is fun with access to a snowpark on the upper slopes of Mont Chery with airbag, hips, handrails, tables and a wall; plus a Jib park with a table and handrail. There’s a boardercross near the top of Chavannes.



In good snow there is plenty to do off-piste, including some excellent wooded areas.

The expert park is at 'Arare' with an airbag. Beginners and intermediates should head to 'La Chapelle' which is a 500m long park. 'Parkway' is good for beginners and children (including traffic lights for safety and mini jumps). 'The Stash' (concept came from America) has routes cut through the forest with wooden elements bringing all-mountain riding and freestyle together. The last park is 'Lil'Stash' which is a mini version for children. There is also a super pipe and boardercross.


The Perrieres Videopark
You can now watch yourself improve over the parallel slalom on skis or snowboard thanks to this exciting area fitted with cameras and stopwatch. The video system starts automatically when you pass your ski pass through the checkpoint at the top of the slalom. When you finish your run, you can watch your personal video on a screen or see it on the website and share it on social networks. It is free of charge and access is via the Perrières Express chairlift from the bottom of the Mélèzes ski run.
