“Should be closed in the winter!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013 via mobile

Very bad ski resort, old lifts, dificult access, terrible customer service and not prepared for the snow.
If you are planning to come on a family holliday then Saint Lary gets even wosrst... try another place!
Nothing really works in the station. The conections are terrible, there are shuttles for the tourits that take forever and you can be waiting in the snow with your children for an hour. The lift to the station is not better...it's old and takes too much time to get to the top, and when you finally get there there's a lot of stairs waiting for you. The slopes are not good, very short and lot of tracks going up when what you want is to go down. The lifts in the slopes are old and most of them were closed. In some cases you have to go down and take the bus to return to the slopes.
The restaurants are also very bad and for two times the station run out of food! You can only drink!
There is a nursery for children in the station but it's a nightmare.
Generaly the people in the station are not very nice and that makes the experience even worst.

THIS WAS THE WORST STATION I HAVE EVER BEEN!

“Now !A very special ski Resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

We have been visiting St Lary for over 25 years it hs just gone on improving. It now has excellent restaurants, vastly improved lift systems and when we went the snow was incredible. My only gripe is the prices which are virtualy the same as the Alps for lift passes etc, its a good thing the food and hotels are more favourable

“Closed for the week!,”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2012 via mobile

Went between holiday seasons - not enough snow for skiers and not enough sun for others. But perfect for us. Village was quiet and we had the mountains to ourselves for cycling, hiking and running. Hardly any of the shops were open though, mostly due to the bank holiday where they seemed to take four days off. Beautiful scenery and fabulous place to visit in a campervan.

“Little known gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2012

Saint-Lary-Soulan is a big resort, with extensive lifts, great on piste cafes, and if you stay at Saint-Lary 1900 (Espiaube), no queues.

“Small resort, OK for a weekend.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2012

Small resort, essential to get pass for 1900 and 2400 ski areas. A lot of road travel going from one area to another.
