And you, what is your superpower ?
On International Women’s Rights Day, 8 March, we would like to highlight the women of the Gets who, each in their own way, have superpowers.
Emblematic figures, medal-winning skiers, guardians of heritage and culture, seasoned mountain women, culinary chefs or working in the background, many women contribute to the development and dynamism of the resort thanks to their activity, their profession and their passion.
Although we have not been able to show all the faces of the heroines of Les Gets, we would like to pay a collective tribute to all the women of Les Gets.
