Freeride skiing at the Pic du Midi


This is skiing and boarding at its best, away from the crowds, wide open virgin snowfields... The descent from the Pic du Midi at nearly 3000 meters is just sensational, a magnificent panorama from the viewing terraces (can you see the coast???), so take your time to take it all in before heading down. One of the great off-piste descents in Europe and unique in the Pyrenees!
