Lea gets bike park is getting worse each year. There are some great tracks but they are I rideable due to the lack of maintainence. They are so rough. They aren't designed that well so brake bumps are everywhere. They are building new tracks but the shapers don't have a clue and are still building tracks that get bumpy very quickly and have no flow. The only good thing about les gets is that the lift is good and there are lots of secret trails to ride off of the bike park. Even so I would not come here on holiday and pay for a lift pass just to ride les gets. Waste of money . Go to morzine or chatel instead

While the actual bike track is decent, the cable lift is 'no descent' which is misleading and thoroughly unscrupulous to people who assume that they can descend, indication of this unprecedented regulation was generally vague and disappointingly obscure.

Fortunately we were able enough to physically descend the mountain by foot, taking approximately 50 minutes.
However this was bitterly disappointing, especially if someone with a disability would have wanted to ascend for the view, and then to be notified of such preposterous regulations upon the intent of return to Les Gets.

The gateway to a huge MTB area; there is so much hidden stuff, go exploring but have good insurance!
