In recent years the Pyrenees has experienced equal if not better snow falls than the Alps – and with the village of Perles at the heart of winter activities in the Ariege, you can be guaranteed a wonderful winter holiday.
If downhill skiing or snowboarding is your thing, the telecabine for Ax 3 Domaines is five minutes drive (a drop-off and pickup service is provided by us as part of your holiday) . With 95km of pistes, Ax 3 Domaines is a fantastic resort for your winter holiday. Also close-by is the Ascou-Pailheres ski station, which has another 20km of pistes. The mountains surrounding Pyrenees Haven provide some exhilarating off piste skiing and ski touring.
From the gite you are just a short drive from the dedicated snow shoe and cross country ski resorts of Beille (65km of pistes) and Chouila(75km of pistes). Beille also provides the opportunity to give dog sledding, biathlon and ski cross a go. For the lazy ‘sledger’, Beille also has a covered moving carpet to take you back to the top of the sledge run!
What started years ago as purely a means of getting from A to B, snow shoeing, has evolved into a popular winter activity for fun and fitness. Beille and Chouila and the mountains of Ax open up even more on a pair of snow shoes. All ages and ability levels can enjoy the sport. No lessons are necessary, if you can walk, you can snowshoe.
