This winter, whether you're a sporty or a contemplative type, come and take a breath of fresh air in the Pyrenees! The mountains of the south are wooded, ideal for snowshoeing or dog-sledding. Whether you're a cross-country skier, snowboarder, downhill skier or toboggan fan, the resort villages (Artouste, Gourette and La Pierre Saint-Martin) and Nordic areas (Issarbe and Le Somport) offer skiing enthusiasts areas to suit all levels and abilities. Gourette is even a handiski resort. And there's plenty to do after skiing, with Nordic baths, spas and gourmet specialities.
