The resort of Peyragudes, located in the heart of the central Pyrenees, is relatively unknown outside of France and Spain. The vast domain of Peyragudes has two base areas, the first Les Agudes (the less attractive of the two) has an old feel to it with dated buildings. However, this area has a large learner area and is best suited for first time skiers. The second base area (Peyresourde village) has a completely different feel, with a superb choice of restaurants facing the slope as well as shops and ski hire right next to the lifts. This area is normally bustling, and is especially busy during the main school holidays. Peyragudes ski area is well linked with a mix of modern lifts and a few slower chairs though, in general, there are rarely long queues. Though the skiing is above the tree line, the scenery is excellent, although, in poor weather, the runs can be difficult to navigate at the top of the resort. From a skiing and boarding perspective Peyragudes boasts 60km of pistes, and with a good snow record and vast snow making capability the pistes will remain in good condition throughout the season, and will satisfy skiers and boarders of all abilities. Because of the natural terrain there is a superb amount of off-piste available making this also an ideal playground for those that prefer to have fun away from the main pistes. Above 2000m, on the Peyresourde side of the domain, there is a fantastic snow-park for both boarders and skiers alike with its own snack bar and decked terrace. Behind this there is also a boarder-cross course that ends at the superb restaurant at 2000 metres with a large outdoor seating area and fantastic views across to St Lary Soulan. Both base areas have accommodation though many skiers will find staying at one of the many hotels, apartments or chalets in Luchon as the ideal base as this not only provides a good apres-ski option but also the ability to ski at other resorts within the area.

Cliente régulière de la station de Peyragudes et des autres stations NPY.
Je trouve que Peyragudes a des remontées super efficaces et beaucoup de canons à neige permettant de skier dans de bonnes conditions, même quand l’enneigement naturel n’est pas au rendez-vous comme en ce tout début de saison.
J'ai hâte d’y retourner après les énormes chutes de neige de ces derniers jours!
