As a response to the success of cross country skiing, Peyragudes, resort of the French Pyrenees chose to create this winter a new Nordic trail within the ski area. It is also perfect for snowshoeing and this track called ‘La Crête d’Aube’ allows visitors to walk until the panoramic restaurant Le Cabanou located on the bowl le Peyresourde, at 1,950 meters above the sea level, near the chairlift Les Cimes.
It is a new itinerary comprising an elevation of 300 meters starting at the car park Priviliège in Peyresourde. We hope it will fulfill the expectations of cross-cross country skiers, an activity more popular every year allowing them to discover amazing views over the mountains from immaculate slopes.
The new Nordic Trail at Peyragudes
These visitors are seeking for nature, the silence of the mountain but also the quality of the doomed slopes while going down. When going cross country skiing you expect to see animals of the mountain, much harder to see when going alpine skiing. The restaurant le Cabanou offers spectaculars views over the domain and the villages of the valley of Louron. If you have not got yet your equipment, do not worry.
You can rent your skis and gears in different shops at the base area and even your snowshoes. But be prepared before going, even if you are used to alpine skiing, cross country skiing is very challenging and take enough food and water for the day, it is exhausting! What is new for winter 2015-2016 ?
The slope “Crête d’Aube” on the side of the mountain Peyresourde features a new base area at the mountain Pass above the Cabanou. Moreover, a new Nordic trail is opened on the bowl les Agudes on the sector of the Valley Blache “the Wood“. The two itineraries are also opened for snowshoeing.
