Children and Families
Les Gets was rated by both The Independent (2005) and The Sunday Telegraph (2009) newspapers as the top family ski resort in the world. Les Gets has a large ski area for young children - Le Grany Cry, there are also a number of easy green runs and an area for those skiing for the first time with a 'magic carpet'.
Ski Area for Children - Le Grand Cry
Le Grand Cry is a part of the snow domain in Les Gets which is dedicated to Children. And although the title of the place read purely in English is not particularly inspiring, it is certainly worth a visit.
There are two pistes which are not steep but full of obstacles, doors to go through where dad's need to bend a long way, turns, shortcuts, wigwams, percussion instruments and a video recording device for messages and memories .... All made around an American Indian theme.
Ideal for when the children need a rest from the challenging slopes at the end of the day but don't want to go home yet.
