At 75 minutes’ drive from Geneva airport, Chalet Gueret offers easy access to the massive Portes du Soleil skiing area, linking 12 resorts in France and Switzerland with 196 lifts and 11 snow parks.
The Morzine/Les Gets skiing area is the nearest – just seven minutes’ drive away. With 50 ski lifts it is the largest local ski area on the circuit. There are great beginners’ slopes. Intermediate and advanced skiers will enjoy the tree-lined runs and snow bowls with magnificent views of Mont Blanc. There are some challenging runs and off-piste opportunities for expert skiers. On the other side of the valley, a short drive to the Ardent lift takes you into the Portes du Soleil circuit with access to the slopes above Avoriaz, Chatel and Les Crozets. The Super-Morzine lift takes you to the gentler runs below Avoriaz, while Les Prodains is at the bottom of some of the most challenging skiing in the area. There are large car parks by the lifts. Passes can be booked online.
A free ski bus operates from the church at Essert Romand, about five minutes’ walk from Chalet Gueret, to both Morzine and Les Gets, around once an hour (except lunch time). Local taxi/transfer companies can be booked in advance to provide a private minibus for guests to and from Chalet Gueret and the Morzine Pleney lift.
Morzine has French, International and British ski schools. It is always advisable to pre-book, and we will be happy to help.
