hey, did three season there, 2winters, even spent summer there (lots of mountain bikesrs, 100:1 men to women!) but as for winter nightlife, you got igloo niteclub, best bars in town are zebra3, bar bush, and boomerang, you will meet plenty of other seasonaires there, and have a good season, skiing is also pretty good.

Hey I'm working for Esprit this winter.
I've done two seasons before but never at this resort.
It seems pretty cool from what I've read and been told but if you could give me n e more info about nightlife and the snowboard parks and stuff then tht would b awesome.

You can find info on les gets park at snowpark-lesgets.com, its on Mont Chery, which is very accessable by a 6man bubble lift and close to centre of town. There are good areas for off piste at Nyon and Chamoisere and the les gets bowl has some good pistes too (la turch especially). But if you get bored of the les get/morzine area, just head off to Avoriaz,if ya can drive there   you can get there after lunch, get plenty of riding in and get home in the evening. its possible to ski there and back also.

Nightlife is what ya make of it really, its a small place so its easier to get to know people, although each company tends to be clichey with each other, but thats the same for everywhere i guess.

Hey,
 
I'm going to be working in Les Gets this year. First winter season just finished my first summer season back in England. Really excited. go on to snoweye you can see webcam views of Les Gets at the moment. It looks like theres a lot of snow at the moment. But there was none last year so we could be on to a winner! What company are you going to be working for?

The boomerang hotel in les gets hire bike guides, mechanics and bar, room/restaurant and kitchen staff for the summer. Also try alpine active, crystal, and alpine elements. The boomerang hotel used to be where the aussie junior teamed stayed whenever they came to the portes du soliel, Cedric Gracia and Fabien Barrell has held camps for guests of the hotel and journalists from MBR and MBUK stay there too. All in all very major hotel in the world of mountain biking!
good luck have a good summer

I'm working in Morzine this season, my hubby is still looking for work and I am now looking for accommodation, what are you and your guys doing for work?
 
Moira what town is your boyfriend staying in and where did he find accommodation?
 
It'd be good to hear from someone else going out there!

I've spoken to the people at Chalet Nanteque, they do still have rooms but I am hoping to find and pay for a double, so a better option financially for me, will be to rent an apartment and find some others to share with. I'm probably going out to Morzine in August so I'm hoping I'll find something while I'm out there. If you know anyone looking to share an apartment do let me know.
 
When do you lot start your season?
