The cable car was out of service cue to lack of snow. The station looks good and the facilities are there, but we were two weeks too late, the season was over. It seems that the cable car will be in serves again as from 1 June for the summer season.

On the way to the Port de Bucharo (7338 ft).

From Gavarnie you drive up the wonderfully twisty turney exposed D923 up to its very end, where there is a parking space facing a steep cliff to the south. This is the Col des Tentes. If you follow the trail to the northeast up the hill you soon come to a small peak with a circular table showing the 360 degree surrounding mountains with their names. If from the parking space you continue up the road (now blocked for cars) to the west southwest, in a mile you come to the Port de Bucharo, which is a high pass on the Spanish border. This mile walk is not at all difficult, and the close-by peaks are stunning. Once at the Port you are met by stiff winds and a view into the bleak Spanish Pyrenees. It is said that this is one of the escape routes into Spain hazarded by refugees and resistance fighters fleeing the Nazis in WW II.

Bad reception

Too commercial... Avoid it.... Not a Natural Park, no public area where you can have a pick-nick. Horrible attitude of the restaurant owners if you try to have a stop outside of their restaurant.
You can drive to Cirque de Tremousse in the same area, whre you will be in the middle of the nature. If nt, forget it.

you drive up and up and the views as expected are quite beautiful, at the top there is a place to park and then you can walk a bit further till you really do feel on top of the world, anyone with height phobias, its to be avoided

Quiet pistes, perfect for beginners, fantastic views

Gavarnie is the perfect place to learn to ski, it has quiet easy slopes and the longest green in the Pyrenees! Having said that, there are perfect blues for cruising, reds and blacks for the more experienced skier. All the staff there are friendly. The chairlifts are a bit ancient, but hey, in such a beautiful place, who cares! I've enjoyed every day I've spent there, and usually picnic up high, opposite the Breche de Roland, in the sunshine!

Disappointing effort
Feb 2015 • Friends
We wanted to experience skiing in a proper French ski resort without the masses of foreign tourists. After a good fall of snow they were very slow to get the pistes and lifts up and going again for weekday skiers and the town itself was very 'shutdown'. There was not one place in town to buy a meal and the little shop was not even open for bread every day. A real shame as with a little more effort it would have been great, beautiful scenery and everything there - if it was open! Spent 2 days skiing at nearby Bareges who had made slightly more effort. Make sure you have winter/snow tyres on your vehicle and chains as they insist you put them on.

Beautiful if you can get up there.

A lovely small ski station in the Atlantic Pyrennees region. There are only a handful of pistes so it's idealfir a few days you might get bored if you want to stay for a full week in the area and ski Gavarnie every day. Most of the piste are easy blues and greens. There are a couple of reds and a couple of black runs however the blacks are not pisted and can be very tricky. This Jan the snow was ok with a big fall on December 29 however the snow red ord in early season is hit and miss. The access to Gavarnie is the issue with snow clearance not up to the standard of other resorts in thee Pyrenees. Snow chains Or tyres are pretty much a must. We opted for the ski bus from the village as the roads to the station were poorly cleared. The issue with the bus was only 2 a day up and as a result places were hard to get. The locals do not queue at all so it's a bun fight for seats.

greedy?

for the last 7 years we go to the Pyrenees for our ski holidays, visiting relatives and enjoying the different ski resorts. This year weather conditions have been awfull, and when we went to Gavarnie on 21 January, the access road was a challenge, even for a 4x4 with snow tyres, but when we asked whether the station was open we were told that blue and green runs were open. Though it was snowing we decided to go for it. First run was nearly impossible to find (30cm of fresh snow, visibility around 20 meter), and at the next one we were informed that the rest was closed. Went back to the office, where we were informed that they'd told us(?) There were 2 other brave skiers, who decided at the same time to stop, they had been falling more than skiing.
We understand that those people have to live from tourists, but not this way. After 7 years of going to Gavarnie, this was the last time for us.
