A station with history
Ax 3 Domaines is not very popular on the south face of the Pyrenees, but it has a long history: it was created in 1955 and since then it has only consolidated itself as an alpine ski resort. In addition, it has repeatedly visited the Tour de France and opens in summer to offer different activities such as mountain biking and hiking trails.
An environment to dream
If you plan a quick and close getaway on your trip to the snow, Ax 3 Domaines is an ideal destination: it is a few kilometers from the border and access is easy. Calculate that from Puigcerdà it takes about 45 minutes by car to the picturesque village of Ax Les Thermes. The best thing is that you do not have to cross customs with large retentions.
All are amenities and facilities to get to the station: in the same municipality you can park for free and take the cable car directly to the slopes, which are 1,380 meters high.
As for its surroundings, it has little to envy to the Alps. In this short trip by cable car you can admire (if you do not get vertigo) an exceptional panoramic view of the mountains that surround you. They will leave you breathless.
