If you want to take the gondola to Le Pic du midi and it's April/May, make sure you ring or go to tourist bureau in Bagneres to check if the gondolas are working. They do maintenance at that time of year and we got caught out. You would think there would be a sign on the road letting you know!

Not a lot to say about this ski resort. In summer the cable car to the Pic du Midi runs through the day. You can stay up there overnight with guided visits to the observatory. The restaurant offers basic food and on a good day the views are superb. It is said that on a clear day you can see... More

We have just had a great week skiing staying in Bareges.We were very lucky as all links were open to La Mongie the skiing was great and the lifts system good. The people working on the lifts very helpful.

Despite checking the website the cable car to the Pic du Midi was closed when we arrived. The whole resort was like a ghost town, be aware of you are booking accommodation here as there is no where to eat!!

We went to La Mongie to get to the Pic du Midi on public transport, the journey took about an hour from Tarbes, but was worth it, the scenery was breathtaking and the cafes and bars were reasonably priced (for a ski resort)

The Pyrenees are a great alternative to the Alps. La Mongie and Bareges make up Tourmalet, the largest ski area in the French Pyrenees...great for every level of skier and with a great snow record. Fly to Toulouse and 1 hour 45mins later you're there. Stay in the Campan Valley and drive up to La Mongie or stay the other... More

It is given to be the largest ski domain in yhe Pyrenees : It is wrong. Only a few tracks where open, the people went on a kind of a strike, and the were not ready on time. Only a part of the ski domain is open, but they charge you the full price...
