Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Hunting Season Les Gets Morzine

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Looking to bring our dog with us to Les Gets in September and want to hike the surrounding area. Is there any official link to hunting season dates and areas? We’d like not to get shot at.

This is a link to last years dates, Googling key words in this document will probably get you what you want for this year.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Thanks @Timc, from this doc it appears hunting goes on until Jan 20, well into ski season!

As far as I can make out that is the general regulations for the department which local bye-laws supercede. You may do better with an enquiry to the Mairie for local restrictions. https://www.lesgets-mairie.fr/contact.aspx

I used to know an old guy in Chatel who ran a ski hire shop in winter but in the hunting season had his own still hidden in the woods where he would distil his own "moonshine". Going to the woods every day with his gun to check on the state of the initial fermentation and them the distillation, hunting was a great excuse to test the alcohol, this routine was usually finished before the first snows of winter. I don't know if the culture still exists but alcohol and hunting used to go together.

Hiring skis from him was a great experience as apres-ski started when you took the skis back when he would always offer at least one glass of his "moonshine" and the more French you attempted to speak the more glasses he offered.
