Opened in 1957, the Saint-Lary resort was first developed around the Pla d'Adet sector, which alone counts for nearly a third of the station's accommodation. The foot of the piste is directly connected to the village centre by the cable car and gondola. It is home to lots of services and shops, ski schools and a large part of the “Family Plus” offer: daycare, ski lessons, a Kidpark, and more.
With the construction of the access road and the merger with Soulan, a second foot-of-the-piste opened near the village Espiaube. This is the point closest to the town if going by car, and certainly the most central for exploring the whole resort.
The ski area is part of the largest in the Pyrenees, extending over different types of slopes, with different configurations: sometimes on sheer rock, sometimes in the forest. a wealth of landscape and exposures which ensures that skiing is possible in almost any weather!
A rare bonus - a place where beginners are not obliged to stay at the bottom of the slopes!
One of the big advantages of Saint-Lary is in the way it was designed so that the whole family, whatever their skiing ability, can enjoy everything in the whole resort - for example having lunch in one of the restaurants at high altitude. In addition to being served by numerous lifts open to pedestrians, the resort offers plenty of "blue" alternatives to the challenging pistes preferred by really good skiers, so anyone of any level can enjoy all the beautiful sights of Saint-Lary. No need for beginners to mooch around at the bottom of the slopes!
