Les Gets - Mont Chery Ski Area - A hidden gem in Les Gets

No better time than now to enjoy the fresh snow on Mont Chery. It is well known by locals and regular visitors as one of the best areas in the Porte du Soleil - It’s quieter, never has any queues, offers terrific on and off piste skiing with stunning views of the surrounding mountains. Although the lifts are older and slower, you still get more skiing as there is no time lost queuing. You also get a real sense of nostalgia – you can’t fail to enjoy a wonderful experience there on a sunny day in fresh snow.
