Snow-covered downhill run throughout the season
Thanks to the altitude of the Font-Romeu ski area between 1600 and 2200 meters as well as the targeted use of around 500 snow cannons, ski holidaymakers can look forward to snow-sure pistes during the entire season. The various downhill runs to Pyrénées 2000 are therefore available until the end of March and are suitable for winter sports fans of all levels, from beginners to professionals. 2 ski lifts lead from the station to the pistes directly above Pyrénées 2000. The Belvédère chairlift takes you from the valley station right into the ski area to the Col del Pam at 2000 meters altitude.
From here, winter sports fans reach the Gallinera high-altitude station, where some challenging black runs start. There are also several green routes from here to the central altitude station of the whole ski area Les Airelles at 1964 meters. Here you will find all ski schools, ski kindergarten and a huge practice area. Last stop is then the summit of the ski area, the Roc de la Calme, on whose pistes numerous blue to black pistes are available and also a snow park.
The ski area's main attraction is the two cross-country ski areas on the Plateau de la Calme and in the Vallée de la Têt, not far from Pyrénées 2000. Together, Nordic athletes have access to 111 km of routes up to 2213 meters, making Font-Romeu the home of the largest and highest cross-country skiing area in the Pyrenees.
Many recreational activities
Even though the Font-Romeu ski resort itself is not one of the largest areas in France, ski holidaymakers in Bolquère-Pyrénées 2000 benefit from an enormous selection of recreational opportunities off the pistes.
The two large sports and leisure centers "L'Elan" and "Termanal des Loisirs" offer all imaginable indoor activities. In the "Termanal des Loisirs" sports fans can choose between tennis, badminton, squash, indoor football, basketball, strength training, table tennis and street hockey on 2500 m². The "L'Elan" is more about playful pleasure. There are 10 bowling alleys and an arcade with pool tables, table kickers, simulators and a giant screen.
Those who prefer to be active in the fresh air also have plenty of choice in Bolquère-Pyrénées 2000. In addition to snowshoe hikes and dog sled rides, for example, snow tours are offered with the Quadbike, a kind of bicycle with 4 wheels. Adventurous people can - accompanied by experienced guides - go on such a tour even after sunset, or opt for the fast-paced downhill variant.
Rides on horses or donkeys are also offered in the vicinity of Bolquère-Pyrénées 2000, as well as helicopter and paragliding flights. Wellness fans will find in many spas of the region large spa facilities, which offer away from the spa also pure wellness treatments.
Extra tip: Exactly between Pyrénées 2000 and Superbolquères you will find the animal park "Territoire Lapon". In addition to reindeer from Lapland, goats, rabbits and sheep have found a home here. As a special highlight, ski holidaymakers can also book a ride on the reindeer sledge here.
