Saint Lary Soulan
FREE MAP DOWNLOAD There are three different zones in this stunning resort. The first, Saint-Lary 1700, also known as the Pla d'Adet can be accessed from the main gondola in the centre of the village. It includes ski schools, the Piou Piou club (a snow garden), tobogganing and snow games. The ski lifts from Pla d'Adet take skiers up to 2300 m altitude, to the Soum de Matte. From here you can either enjoy long ski runs on the blue piste back to the starting point, or to take the more technical red and black pistes for those wanting more of a challenge. St Lary 1900 "Espiaube" is an intermediate area beginning at 1,650 m above sea level at the car park. This has many blue and red pistes running from the upper areas of the resort, and a sports zone with excellent red and black runs through the forest on a north facing slope. Saint Lary 1900 has some very long runs of more than 3 km, such as Mirabelle and Terranère. Mirabelle is served by two chairlifts and a cable car and has a mountain restaurant which is also accessible to non-skiers. Moving upwards and crossing the ridge, Saint-Lary 2400, or the "Vallon du Portet" is a true jewel of the skiing world. At an altitude above 2000m, it offers a wide range of pistes, an extraordinary 360° view of the Pyrenees and plenty of sunshine. There are mountain restaurants accessible to non-skiers, snow sports zones such as the "De Le Rue's Line" and the snowpark with a cross-country ski track 3 km long.
