Ski Passes, Insurance & Money

Ski Passes

Ski passes can either be booked online for collection at the tourist office in Les gets (or sometimes provided by your tour operator) or can be purchased at the lift stations on the first day of your skiing.

The tourist office is located opposite the ice rink next to the Mairee’s office. When you enter the building the ski pass pick up point is at the back on the right.

Everyone in the tourist office are helpful and friendly. All speak English.

Check online for offers. Sometimes they offer “Buy one adult pass, get a child free”

The big decision you need to make is whether to purchase a Lets Gets / Morzine pass or a full Porte Du Soleil pass.


Firstly I would decide on group ability. Les Gets and Morzine offer enough skiing for a weeks holiday for anyone up to intermediate ability. The Les Gets and Morzine ski pass allows you to ski the Mt Chery side (which is probably the nicest ski area and always much quieter)

The only time I would consider a Porte Du Soleil pass is when the snow is mixed or poor in Les Gets or you are looking for more extensive skiing. I’ve skied for over 30 weeks in Les gets and never tire of the area.

Snow conditions early season in Les Gets because of its height can be mixed and a late hot Easter can leave the resort short on snow so consider a full pass only if the conditions look unfavourable on the snow reports. You can always buy a weeks ski pass for Les Gets / Morzine and then buy an additional day extension if you are looking to go to Avoriaz.


As I have previously mentioned, getting a bus from Les gets to the Prodains lift is laborious. Firstly you get the bus to Morzine and then change for the Prodains bus. Travel time is 25 minutes but the journey can take up to an hour with waiting around.


The better option is to drive to Prodains from Les Gets and park up there. The Prodains Express lift takes you straight into the centre of Avoriaz. That journey is 20 minutes and parking costs are low for the day.

Personally, if this is your first time in Les Gets and the snow is good, Just explore the area. Conditions change every day. It is a wonderful resort especially in the bowl around La Rosta and the Ranfolly Express.


Insurance

When you buy your ski pass you get an option of insurance. ALWAYS buy it. Having had a child who’s had a double fracture of his arm twice, and had to be transported off the mountain then you greatly appreciate the cover that the insurance policy includes.

Always make sure you have adequate insurance on your policy to include winter sports. This has to be agreed before you travel.

Some credit cards have insurance policies included as part of the package. Always check that your policy includes winter sports.


Money

Obviously you will need Euros when you travel to France and it’s always a good idea to take at least one credit card. A fantastic discovery we have made is a Revolut card.  A mobile based current account that allows you to hold, exchange and transfer money in 25 different currencies. The exchange rate is amazing. Check it out on Revolute.com

This has transformed our spending in France and other holidays we’ve been on. A MUST have.
