Ski de Fond at Issarbe
SKIING PYRENEES:

Skiing in the Pyrénées is not expensive - it can be as little as 60F a day - but it is more susceptible to the vagaries of the weather than, say, the more expensive slopes in the Alpes.
The season can begin in November, if the snow arrives, and end after the French Easter holidays. We have noticed that some of the best snow can arrive in May, after the local department has closed the pistes!
However there is sometimes a long, hot, sunny spell in January or February which wreaks havoc with the snow and leads to disappointment on the pistes.
But when there is good snow, the ski resorts are good value. You do not need bus or coach to travel from one piste to another, they can be relatively uncrowded, and the food and drink is not expensive.
Cross-country skiing, or ski de fond as it is known in France, can be very rewarding, offering wonderful views of the mountains and, on a clear day, a very long way around.
