    Even if not skiing, you can still visit the slopes, sit at the hill side restaurants and view mountain sceneries from up there if you take a cabin lift. A return ticket costs about 6 - 7 euros.

    There are many slopes for all skill levels and some ski lifts start at the village center so there's not much need for transportation if you're staying within walking distance from the center. However, there are free bus transportations from the hotels.

    'La Mure', the Wall. This steep black piste is not for nothing called this way and a realy nice adventure to try once (and if you have done that, you want to go again - after you take a rest. The Wall is situated on the border of Switserland and France. Don't do it when you're a beginner, as it looks maybe okay but takes an enormous strength of your muscles and is in distance further then the look from above. Maybe you won't fall, but you might sprain a muscle that ruines the rest of your wintersport.

    Another great thrill is the 'women's worldcup super G' that has a quiet different terrain and has amazing view over the valley of Morzine.

    This is something you should try while visiting the Alps: eating in the local style. They actually bring you a plate of raw slices of meat or poultry and a small table cooker/grill or a fondue pot to prepare your food at table. Interesting and great fun but incredibly hot. The downside at this restaurant was that the ventilation was managed by opening the door and then some customers sitting closer to the door were cold and wanted to close it while we at our table were still steaming hot. But otherwise a great experience.

    Favorite Dish: Fondue and Raclette. Try the cheeses. Yes, they are smelly but don't let that scare you off, the taste is heavenly.

    Table grills are HOT The desserts were great

Les Gets Transportation

    I have travelled to Les Gets about 6 times from the UK. The best airport is Geneva which is about 1 hour 15 mins away.
    The best transfer way is by hire car ; taxis etc. are available but are expensive some friends have just been to Morzine (2009) (which is the next place to Les Gets ) and were charged 600 euros for a mini bus return trip.
    Note : Genveva airport is shared with Switzerland and France if you rent a car on the French side it can be a real pain as you have to go through all the French customs etc. and VERY VERY difficult to find the return rental location!
    The Swiss have a motorway tax for all users. Swiss car rentals carry the tax but the French dont so you could be caught out with an extra road tax at around 30 euros.
