Skiing La Mongie-Barèges/Grand Tourmalet-Pic du Midi

The Grand Tourmalet ski resort connects Barèges 1250 m and La Mongie 1800 m to form one of the largest ski resorts on the French side of the Pyrenees. The Col du Tourmalet is located in the center of the ski resort. The Tour de France has made the highest pass road in the French Pyrenees famous. In the winter, the pass is closed and the slopes lead alongside it. A highlight is the well-known Pic du Midi de Bigorre with its observatory and impressive panorama. A cable car lift goes up in two sections from La Mongie to the Pic du Midi (2877 m). There are no official ski slopes leading from the Pic du Midi. It is exclusively freeride territory.
