Val from United Kingdom writes:

Bareges is a friendly, unspoilt and unpretentious spot for some excellent skiing and great value. Prices on the mountains and in the village are less than half of what you would pay in the Alps. Easy to get to via flights to Lourdes and the very cheap navette bookable on the Lourdes airport site. Hotel le Central highly recommended.
