The Pyrenees on the other side of the border
The best known destination for skiing in France is probably the Alps. However, most times it is not easy to find enough days to get there. With less fame but with a great attraction, the French Pyrenees is one of the closest ski destinations and with more possibilities, as the number of stations are counted by tens.
Every trip to the snow of the French Pyrenees is guaranteed a good variety of slopes -some of vertigo, others more suitable for beginners-, as well as a considerable range of activities to do during après-ski hours. And it's cheaper than in the Alps!

One of the favorites by many is the nearby Font Romeu - Pyrénées 2000, just 21 kilometers from Puigcerdà. Its domain adds 43 skiable kilometers by which 41 tracks of all levels are distributed, apt to go with the couple, friends or family who are starting and also for the most demanding. If something is known this season is for the large number of runners who train all year round for their slopes.
