Skiing in Barege

Winter in Chalet du Bastan and Barèges

Chalet du Bastan is very close to the extensive Domain du Tourmalet ski area which takes in both Barèges and La Mongie ski areas. There is a huge range of skiing on offer for beginners and experts alike. There is a network of easy runs which allow you to explore the resort, as well as some challenging and exciting runs for experienced skiers. Luz Ardiden and Gavarnie ski areas are accessible by car or by bus if you want to spread your wings and try other areas.

The ski area has recently been improved and modernised, new lifts have been put in and snow-making equipment has been installed to make the resort snow-sure for the whole of the season.

The Tourmalet ski area has some of the best restaurants you are likely to find at any ski resort. You can choose either simple, home cooked meals at very reasonable prices, or if you prefer, you can go for a full gastronomic blow out.

The ski schools have English speaking instructors, and offer a full range of lessons from ski school to individual lessons and off-piste tours.

Ski hire in Barèges is very reasonable. The hire shops update their equipment every year, and can offer very competitive packages for all levels of skiers.
