Le domaine du Cirque du Lys vous propose :

Le damage et la qualité d’entretien des pistes sont également deux grandes forces du domaine reconnues depuis maintenant 50 ans (ouverture de la station en 1964).

On aime

Les aires débutants, sécurisées et enrichies de deux nouveaux tapis de remontée, idéales pour s’initier à la glisse en famille.
Le nouvel espace luge, situé sur la zone Jonction est le lieu de rendez vous des familles. Le tapis de remontée « Jonction » permet de réaliser plusieurs descentes en continu, avant une petite pause restauration à La Tartinerie.

La piste bleue Crêtes, 700 mètres de dénivelé du point le plus haut du domaine au point le plus bas, qui offre un panorama unique sur les sommets emblématiques des Hautes–Pyrénées : le Vignemale, point culminant des Pyrénées française avec ses 3298 mètres d’altitude et le Pic du midi de Bigorre et son observatoire astronomique.

L’ Oakley Park, premier freestylepark pyrénéen (et deuxième français) labellisé par la célèbre marque Américaine. Vous y retrouverez un parcours de bordercross et 20 modules dont un O’rail et un Stairset Oakley, uniques en Europe.

La forte déclivité de certaines zones (ex : secteur Touyarolles) particulièrement appréciée pour du ski sportif.

Visitor Reviews of Cauterets


Tony Tollinton from United Kingdom writes:

Cauterets is a great little resort ideal for a few days skiing, and when you want a change there are resorts such as Bareges/La Mongie and Luz Ardiden that are no more than 45 minutes drive away.

Cauterets has not been discovered by the Brits yet, but it is great to visit at all times of the year. It has a good snow record and this probably explains why there is a longer skiing season than most resorts in the Alps. In the summer it becomes one of the premier mountaineering centres of the Pyrenees and has some fabulous walking on its doorstep.

Cauterets itself is at under 1000m, but the main skiing area is served by a gondola that goes up to 1850m. There are a good mix of blue and red runs and some blacks. There is also a small skiing area that is a short bus-ride/drive away at Pont d'Espagne, but this is more suited to cross-country skiing.

The appeal of Cauterets is not just the skiing but the resort itself. It developed as a spa town where people came to take the waters, and it retains a charm that is missing in most French Alpine resorts. Lots of restaurants and bars, but probably not much to appeal to anyone looking for exciting nightlife.
