The Bareges ski area,  known as the Grand Tourmalet and already the largest in the French Pyrenees, is to increase by 20% over the next 5 years.

The project is called Grand Tourmalet 360, the ski area will increase from 280 to 360 hectares

New pistes are being created on both sides of the Col du Tourmalet with magnificent new blue runs ready to open for this coming winter.

This photo was taken on the 6th June 2013 just before the top of the Col du Tourmalet, as one brave cyclist battles between the immense walls of snow, the last few winters have seen enormous amounts of snow.

There have been so many changes since we offered our first ski holidays in Bareges in 1987 – Skiing from the Pic di Midi, comprehensive snow-making, fast 6 seat lifts.
