50th anniversary in Les Agudes
On Thursday December 28, Les Agudes celebrates its 50th anniversary… and it will be celebrated in style. But before telling you everything it’s planned, let’s have a little look at the history of this idyllic valley of the French Pyrenees.
In the 1950s, skiing was considered a “forced” means of transport when there was snow. At that time, the inhabitants of the valley did not hesitate to climb the Col de Peyresourde and the slope of Les Agudes to slip through the white meadows of this wonderful valley of Louron. The success was resounding and the practice of skiing began to become fashionable.
During the 50s and 60s, the Gouaux Larboust town hall decided to open a path that allowed access to the foot of a restaurant on slopes, a rental equipment and a ski lift. In 1962, promoter Leopold Comier, then mayor of the small village, agreed that the farmers would give up their land and create the ski resort of Les Agudes, and from that date, the first buildings soon developed to see the potential of the area and the great influx of public.
In December 1967, the ski resort of Les Agudes opened under a private management model. It developed little by little. In 1988, on the initiative of Jean Peyrefitte, then member of the French National Senate and Mayor of Luchon, along with Michel Pelieu, the slopes of Les Agudes and Peyresourde merged and became the current ski resort of Peyragudes.
The management was commissioned to a new entity, called SEMAP Peyragudes. Since then, the ski resort has not stopped modernizing implementing new technologies, getting differentiated from the competition for its “futuristic vision” of the world of snow.
Holidays in Peyragudes: multiple activities
To commemorate this anniversary, the ski resort of Peyragudes has planned multiple activities throughout the day on Thursday, December 28 with a very complete program: animations on slopes, a ski race open to all public organized by the Ski Club, musical animations and games with gifts for children, a torchlight descent of ESF instructors and children from the Peyragudes Ski Club and the party will end in style, with the launch of Thai lanterns that will light up the sky and the mountains. The day will end with an appetizer / dinner that will be musicalized by the music group “Esquierry”.
This anniversary will be extended throughout the season with two photo exhibitions at the ski resort and in the town, which will feature unpublished images of the construction of the station, including many advantages for all those skiers who will celebrate their 50th birthday in 2018 both at the ski resort and in its shops (free pass for those who turn 50 between January 1 and April 2, 2018 and the half price pass for all who turn 50 in 2018). A season full of promotions, surprises and celebrations for Spanish skiers to sit in Peyragudes at home, skiing more and paying less.
