About La Mongie
Not only is La Mongie the largest ski-area in the French Pyrenees - with over 125 km of runs and around 65 lifts - but it also has the most technical skiing of the massif. At the top it's 2450m (8100 feet) with over 1100m of vertical drop. There are some really challenging black pistes along with some more family-orientated red, blue and green slopes and extensive off-piste. Here you get all the advantages of a skiing holiday in the Alps but without the crowds or the Alpine prices. Now with the new N'PY alliance between several local Pyrenees resorts you can now ski over 300km of pistes (220 lifts) in the locality at much reduced lift prices. All eight resorts in this new collaborative chain are drivable for day trips from Villa Tamerza and Peyragudes and Gourette have made extensive changes to their skiing terrain during the summer - so are well worth a day trip.
If you haven't tried skiing in the Pyrenees, you must try La Mongie-Bereges. Lots of off-piste powder too, which doesn't get skied out before breakfast.
La Mongie-Bareges is situated almost midway along the length of the Pyrenees mountains which form the border between France and Spain and stretch some 200 miles between Perpignan in the east and Biarritz in the west. In total there are 38 French ski resorts in the Pyrenees and La Mongie-Bareges is the largest by far. La Mongie is a modern, purpose-built ski station situated at 1800m on the east-facing slopes of the Pic du Midi de Bigorre. Bareges on the other hand is an older, more traditional mountain village situated at the foot of the west face of the Pic du Midi. Access to La Mongie is slightly easier.
The nearest main towns are Bagneres de Bigorre - about 30 minutes drive from La Mongie and Lourdes which is about 45 minutes drive from either La Mongie or Bareges.
You can choose to ski or snowboard, both on and off piste, and there is a lot of choice of runs. You can stay for a week and not do the same run twice. The area is very well-connected and you can ski down to La Mongie and the resort village of Bareges on the other side of the Pic du Midi.
