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!

Charming hotel at the foot of Tourmalet

Ideally located a short walk from the foot of Tourmalet with views of Pic du Midi de Bigorre, this completely renovated hotel welcomes guests all year round. Manager Christophe possesses a refined talent for welcoming guests! He will make recommendations based on experience and reveal some of his favourite areas to visit. Available activities include riding with mountain dogs, panoramic views of the Pic du Midi summit and in wintertime the impressive slopes of the Grand Tourmalet ski resort. After a day’s activities you’ll return to the cosiness of the hotel. Stone and wood construction is sympathetically combined with copper lights and mouldings giving a feeling of warmth. The cherry on the cake: tennis court and “energising” swimming pool! Bedrooms offer a slick combination of modern finishings and simplicity. As soon as you step inside you’ll want to curl up inside the cosy white bedding. Chef specialities changed daily.
