Ski Resorts


Le Mourtis

Le Mourtis is Saint Béat’s local ski station. It’s a relatively small, family oriented place with 15kms pistes (8 Green, 5 Blue, 5 Red and 2 Black). The drive to the station takes about 15 minutes but in heavy snow you will probably need chains. Situated at 1,350m at the base and 1816 at the top, Le Mourtis has 10 lifts in all. It's an attractive ski area with pistes running through the forest, ideally suited to intermediates. There is also a Snow park and tobogganing area. Le Mourtis has restaurants, bars and 2 ski-schools (ESF and ESI). Link to Station here . Piste plan here

 

Luchon (Superbagneres)

There are 35kms of runs (4 Green, 11 Blue, 7 Red and 6 Black). There's a good ski school, plus a snow park, cross country skiing and an area for sledging. Luchon is 15 to 20 minutes easy drive away.

Baqueira Beret

Baqueira Beret is a very large, sophisticated Spanish ski resort about 45 minutes drive away. Ski passes here are more expensive than each of the above, but it's well worth a visit. With over 105kms of runs suitable for beginners and advanced skiers, and great mountain restaurants, it has much to commend it. Link here
