Hautacam: ski resort in winter, leisure park in summer!

Located in the town of Beaucens , the family ski resort of Hautacam is as famous for the quality of its slopes in winter as for the diversity of its leisure activities in summer. It is easy to spend a full day there to fully enjoy the beauty of the grandiose mountain landscapes . The Val d'Azun dominated by the Balaïtous, the Pibeste massif and the high peaks of Gavarnie and Cauterets stretch as far as the eye can see! To access Hautacam , a winding road winds through the green valley and offers sumptuous panoramic views. This ski resort, popular with families in winter, is transformed in summer into a real leisure park that promises great sensations for all ages: summer tobogganing, off-road scooter and DévalKart , quad rides , Segway and "Fat bike" ! What to spend memorable moments with family, friends or lovers.

Imagine going down 1km of rails on a toboggan that descends the slope at 46km / h with the Pyrenean chain in the background! A good dose of adrenaline awaits you. The resort has a superb summer toboggan run , also called "Mountain luge" on which you adjust your speed as you wish. Equipped with a brake and perfectly secure, the sled allows you to control your acceleration on the course dotted with hairpin bends or let you slide without restraint. Rest assured, an automatic shutdown system is installed on arrival. These sledges being two-seater, this activity can be practiced alone or in pairs, triggering laughter and shivers at each turn. Accessible from 3 years old, children must be accompanied by an adult up to 8 years old. A smart descent for a memorable experience facing a unique panorama!

Also enjoy a moment of relaxation where pleasure and thrills mingle at the wheel of a “Sherpa”, a funny hybrid machine between mountain biking and all-terrain scooter . For safety, the management team provides a helmet at the start of the ski lift, before hooking the kart or scooter to the pole to climb the slope effortlessly. These activities use the infrastructure of the existing ski lifts . Once at the top, it's up to you to hurtle down the slope at full speed or at your own pace, a steering wheel brake system allowing you to regulate your speed. These original concepts, simple to use and easy to handle, provide thrills at low cost!
