by Jean Michel Loric

Starting point of the hike : The Col d'Azet 1585m.

From Saint-Lary follow the direction Sailhan Azet. At the village of Azet continue towards the Col d’Azet.

For this snowshoeing trip on the Azet ridges although very accessible, we have chosen to be accompanied by a guide who will take us off the beaten track in order to make the most of this hike in complete safety.

After an efficient distribution of people in the vehicles, to limit the number and the loading of the equipment, here we go in convoy behind the car of our guide towards the pass of Azet.
The journey to the pass took place at the rate of “Ho”, “Ha” or “Holala as it is beautiful!”.
As we climbed, the sun, the snow and the sky was more and more pure and dazzling.

Accessibility by road

For the whole family Ideal for an introduction

The Louron valley, the Peyragudes pass and the Peyragudes resort.

As we take the trail that slopes gently up to the Azet ridges, in the distance we see a relay antenna that we are heading towards. It’s a warm-up that allows us to tame our equipment!

We continue our progress by leaving the trail to reach the ridge line with a breathtaking view of the Louron valley, the Peyragudes pass and the Peyragudes resort. A little further on the ridge we discover the panorama on the Valley of Aure, the summit of Arbizon and the ski area of Saint Lary.

We are in ecstasies of in front of the beauty of the landscapes and it is a real pleasure for all the family. By the time we made our way back up, the sun was beginning to disappear behind the peaks.
Below, it was already a long time since St. Lary and the valley were in shadow.

And finally...

On the way back

We will keep the memory of this superb afternoon in blue and white for a long time, which we ended in beauty around a raclette between friends.

If you have time on the way back from your hike do not hesitate to visit the village of Azet or Sailhan.
