For expert skiers, the resort is also famed for its off-piste and has access to the Pic du Midi (2877m), an entirely un-pisted mountain that attracts world cup freeride competitions. There is a large terrain park with boarder cross, big air, bumps, rails and boxes. The nearest airports are at Pau (1.5 hrs) and Ossun (Tarbes/Lourdes) (45 min). Toulouse and Biarritz are within 2.5 hours by car and the nearest train station to Bareges & La Mongie is at Lourdes. Accommodation : the resort has two contrasting centres either side of the Col du Tourmalet ; La Mongie and Bareges.

Visitor Reviews of Grand Tourmalet-Bareges/La Mongie
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.
