La Mongie - Ski resort at the foot of the Pic du Midi

Short distances, down to the front door and a unique mountain panorama - La Mongie offers ski holidaymakers all the advantages of a ski station, which is located directly at the foot of the pistes. The modern winter sports resort has been forming the largest ski resort in the French Pyrenees, Grande Tourmalet, since 1973, in conjunction with the traditional ski village of Barèges.

There are more than 80 kilometers of pistes, 70 runs of all levels, 2 snow parks as well as 2 Nordic areas with 50 kilometers of routes and many snowshoe routes available to winter sports fans.

The Pic du Midi du Bigorre also offers plenty of winter sports and leisure opportunities. With 2877 meters one of the highest Pyrenean peaks, the famous mountain forms the center of the ski resort Tourmalet.

Skiing is just a 15-minute cable car ride from La Mongie to the impressive summit, which offers breathtaking views thanks to its location north of the main Pyrenees ridge.

Traveling to distant galaxies on a skiing holiday

The unique view from the Pic du Midi covers one-sixth of the surface of France as well as the entire Pyrenees mountain range with more than 25 three-thousand, and on clear days in the west even to the lighthouse of Biarritz. The Pic itself has been registered since 2003 as a national natural site thanks to the beauty of its landscape.

If you do not want to miss this highlight, you can opt for a comfortable gondola ride or a sporty hike. To climb the summit on foot, hiking fans have two alternatives to choose from. From the Col du Tourmalet, which can be reached by foot from La Mongie with 2 chairlifts, you can reach the Pic in about 2 hours. The second and more demanding route leads from Artigues (5 km from La Mongie) over the Col de Sencours in about five hours to the summit.

But not only because of the natural beauties and the extraordinary panorama, the Pic du Midi is worth a visit. In addition to a museum, there is also an observatory on the summit with the largest reflector telescope in France, inviting to a journey into distant galaxies. For this purpose, various evening programs are offered for star seekers. This always includes a visit to the Pic du Midi Museum, an unforgettable sunset at almost 3000 meters, a traditional dinner and finally a trip to the realm of the stars. Upon request, participants can then return around midnight on to La Mongie by gondola or stay at the summit and still enjoy the sunrise in the high mountains..

For those looking for a bit of relaxation after a long day, there are 2 world-class spa facilities in La Mongie's surroundings, the Cieléo Spa in Barèges and the Aquensis Spa in Bagnères-de-Bigorre.
