How and where can I purchase lift passes?
There’s a few different options available:
- If you’ve booked through a Tour Operator or a chalet company, or plan to stay in a hotel, ask them if they organise lift passes for their guests
- Book and pay online.
- Purchase in Les Gets from one of the ticket offices.
Should I choose a ‘Les Gets/Morzine’ or ‘Portes du Soleil’ lift pass?
This really depends on you and your party’s skiing abilities and aspirations. The Les Gets/Morzine ski area provides ample skiing to keep most people happy. If you’re advanced skier and aim to cover as much of the area as possible, or you plan to visit Les Gets early or late season (when snow conditions can be less predictable), you may consider a full area Portes du Soleil pass. Here’s some more details, to give you more of an idea of the ski area included in each type of pass:
‘Les Gets/Morzine’ ski area:
- 2 Resorts
- 120kms of ski runs
- 68 Ski runs
- 50 Ski lifts
- 1 Snowpark
- 1 Activity area (Grand Cry Territory)
- 1 Boarder Cross area
- Freestyle Zones
‘Portes du Soleil’ ski area:
- 2 Countries
- 12 Resorts
- 650kms of ski runs
- 287 marked ski runs
- 196 Ski lifts
- 7 Snowparks
- 3 Half-pipes
- 4 Boarder cross areas
Should I buy a ‘standard’ or ‘season’ lift pass?
The standard lift pass is valid for a defined duration and only during your stay in Les Gets. They are priced on a sliding scale, which reduces each extra day of your visit. If you are skiing for just 7-10 days, this is the best option. The season lift pass is valid from the opening to the closing of the ski area. It allows unlimited skiing and eliminates time-consuming visits to the lift-pass office. The price of a season pass - if purchased before 30th November - is the equivalent of 10 one-day lift passes.
Are there any discounts available?
Yes, please visit the Lift Pass Prices page for more information.

How does the ‘hands-free’ pass work and are they free?
This is a plastic pass with a microchip on to which your lift pass is credited. Carry the card at all times in a pocket and it is read electronically by the scanning devices at the bottom of each ski lift.
- Practical. Less risk of loss or deterioration because it stays in your pocket (be careful not to put it next to your mobile phone or other hands-free device).
- Environmentally friendly. Reusable season after season.
- Good Value. Each card costs 3 euros and there’s no need to repurchase a card each holiday. You can save precious time by recharging your lift pass online, avoiding queues at lift pass offices.

How do I ‘recharge’ my hands-free pass?
Each card has a unique number made up of 14 letters and numbers. This number is called the ‘WTP’ or ‘No. Internet’. It is printed in the following format: XXXXXXXX XXX-XXX and includes numbers and letters (never the letter ‘O’, but number zero). Enter this number on your internet order, and tick ‘Avez-vous un badge? OUI/ NON’ (Do you have a card? YES/NO) and the system will recharge your card with your required lift pass. The updated pass will be validated the first time you use a ski lift on your first day of skiing in Les Gets. (Please pass the electronic scanner slowly the first time you use it). NB. The number is printed on your card. Do not confuse it with the card number which begins 477… as this number will not allow you to recharge your card.
Where do I collect my lift pass?
Pre-booked lift passes can be collected from the Tourist Office (in the village centre), at a ticket office or may be delivered to your accommodation (depending on where you are staying). Select your preferred option when making the online booking.
