A ski holiday in the Pyrenees, where you don't miss anything!

2 stations, 1 cable car, 1 balneotherapy center, the numbers are in and in Pyrénées Central Park, you really don't miss anything! Everything is on site, easy to access and quick to get from the slopes to your accommodation, to the pretty village of Loudenvielle for shopping, a movie and even a day of having fun or relaxing in thermal waters. At the gates of Spain, the ski area is accessible and attractive to everyone: from beginners to the most seasoned, on skis, snowboards, or any other unidentified sliding device. Snowshoeing, hiking, cross-country skiing, nature is here at its most beautiful, adorned with uneven to entertain, amaze and amuse the whole family.


Loudenvielle and the Louron Valley (classified since 2018 as a Grand Site Occitanie " Pyrenees Aure-Louron " and since 2008 Cities and Countries of Art and History ) can be enjoyed all year round, not just in winter and when the snow covers nature! 46 villages, 2 valleys and 500 years of history await you. Here, it is the kingdom of hiking, mountain sports such as mountain biking, trail running, paragliding, climbing. Visits to tourist sites, breathtaking panoramas and always the convenience of Skyvall to go from the village to the summits (green this time) and organize a family picnic. The Pyrenees Central Park is accessible all year round.


Snowy lake and valley

Read our article on the Balnéa thermo-play center. It is a truly exceptional place, a reason in its own right to come and spend a holiday in the region! 5 world-wide baths, indoor and outdoor, dedicated to the whole family, to bathe in waters of up to 38 degrees, facing the snow-dusted mountains. A la carte treatments, hammam relaxation areas, sauna, a restaurant, you will love bath time!


Winter balnea

The novelties to have fun, have fun and enjoy the snow

The Skybar

The Skyvall, this ultra-fast gondola lift to reach the slopes from the village in 10 minutes, has a friendly sandwich shop. Do you like tapas? Take a break after skiing? Now is the time to get your fill. Note that you can also benefit from a very practical ski locker when staying in the village of Loudenvielle: in the morning all you have to do is take your skis before getting in the cabin towards the slopes, and presto!


To organize your stay at the Pyrenees Central Park, pull out your smartphone and download the Skyvall Experiences application. Maps of ski slopes and other trails (hiking, mountain biking, etc.), weather conditions, opening hours of various services, public transport shuttles, wire cutting, ideas for walks, in short, essential isn't it not?

We only pay for what we ski: the flex card

The Flex card is a brand new novelty that will please those who only do beginner slopes or who teach their children to ski. The card costs 5 euros for the season and then it gives you the possibility of choosing a lift pass at a preferential rate which only includes the slopes that interest you . The mat, the beginner's area or the “ mini area ”. There are even reductions for the classic package, in the shops and services of the resort. We will no longer hear " I'm not going skiing because I only stay on the blue slopes! ".

Beginner's area on the Peyresourde side

Beautiful slopes are essential for beginners. Also the beginners' area which is located at the foot of the Skyvall on the Peyresourde side has been redeveloped and enlarged. It consists of: a covered carpet of 80m, a snow-white carpet of 140 meters, a new Aladin carpet and all this to serve 3 tracks with arches, modules. Beginners (who are already almost no longer) can take the Carrousel chairlift here to set off on a green slope! An offer that fully justifies the Flex card (read above).


The Carrousel slope is lit in the evening (during the holidays and on weekends), for fantastic toboggan runs and more...

Snooc takes over the slopes

Do you like unidentified slippery objects? The Snooc is a mixture of skiing, tobogganing and snowshoeing at the same time. The machine looks proud and astride the seat, you will have a lot of fun during the descent. Perfect for those bored with snowshoes.

Côte Agudes also we will be able to practice Snooc at the end of the day, but also Tubbing, a big buoy that allows real moments of fun, in complete safety. Access via the covered Barbioules carpet.


A new fun snowcross area for all ages is inaugurated on the Gourgs Blancs blue slope. A course with sculpted snow modules to jump, have fun, challenge yourself. Areas available: Funslope, Family Park and Flame Snowpark. And to rest from your emotions, come and sip a drink on the panoramic terrace, at the top of the flame chairlift! Picnic, relax, contemplate… The step into the void will be for the more adventurous!

New ski and snowshoe trails

You don't like downhill skiing? No problem, Pyrénées Central Park is aware of the growing appetite for nature snow activities. 2 new snowshoe trails are being created this year and 1 new marked ski touring route from Agudes towards the panoramic terrace at the arrival of the Lac chairlift.


Snowshoes

Life-size Land's Games

Lovers of geocaching, escape games and other puzzle and hiding games will be able to have fun even on vacation in the snow. The Land's Games are courses and stories that lead you to solve inquiries, while crisscrossing the resort on foot or on snowshoes. With a playbook and an application, you are autonomous and you discover the local heritage, beautiful landscapes, and above all you work as a team to get there!

New in Val Louron

The resort of Val Louron is also investing for beginners: the fun area of the peaks is equipped with new modules, as well as a fun digital system for taking pictures on the slopes. To ensure access throughout the season, artificial snow has been reinforced at this location. A play area for the little ones has been set up in the heart of the village for fun moments between outings on the snow.
