Mont Gelé (3,022 m) is a mountain of the Pennine Alps, part of the Municipality Riddes and overlooking Verbier in the Swiss canton of Valais. Located on the range north of Mont Fort, its summit is the tripoint between the municipalities (and valleys) of Bagnes, Riddes and Nendaz. It is one of the two mountains named Mont Gelé in the valley of Bagnes, the other being located on the Italian border.
In winter, Mont-Gelé summit can be reached from Verbier (or Siviez / Nendaz) through aerial cable-car (upper station: 3,002 m). It is also possible to go down the mountain by two official but off-piste ski slopes, for good skiers only.
