THE "BAS DE STATION" AREA
This beginners' zone is right in the heart of the Village Resort. There is a magic carpet and the Bambi chairlift takes you the top of one gently sloping green run.
The area is fully accessible to people on foot, so family and friends can come and lend their encouragement.
There is also the kids' area at the Ecole de Ski Français, as well as a sledging run.
Set apart from the other areas on the skiing area, it is absolutely perfect for families.
It is very easy to get to by foot or else by the shuttle service, and there are superb views over the resort's historic village and Matemale Lake.
Note that there is a direct connection to the skiing area via the Les Pèlerins cable car and the Les Jassettes chairlift.
Free night-time skiing on the lower slopes of the resort every day during the French school holidays, from 5 PM to 7 PM.
THE "PLA DEL MIR" AREA
The Pla del Mir area faces south and is reserved for children and beginners to learn how to ski without others bothering them. There is a shuttle service from the village.
Set in the heart of the Pla del Mir Cirque it is a haven of peace and quiet, offering a reassuring and stress-free environment in which to learn, as well as being very practical for parents and anyone else who has come to lend support.
It is an area for skiers of all abilities, and you can come up and put all you have learned into practice on the three green runs (Collade, Marmotte and Faon) with ski lift access and magic carpet, or else head off across the whole skiing area via the Pla del Mir chairlift.
There is also the Les Angles Animal Park.
So whether you're young or old, a skier or else simply out walking, then the Pla del Mir is the ideal place for you.

THE BIGORRE PLATEAU
The Les Pèlerins cable car arrives at the Bigorre Plateau, the heart of the skiing area. At an altitude of 2100m, it is an absolute delight. It acts as the heart and lungs of the entire skiing zone, providing access to all the various areas.
Its great strength is the wonderful 2-hectare plateau that really is an intermediate access zone between the beginners' areas and the space for serious skiing. There is also the P’tit Yéti, an entirely safe high-altitude area operated by the Ecole de Ski Internationale.
There is pedestrian access from the Les Pèlerins cable car, and with its high altitude restaurant, ‘Le Chalet’ and yhe "Hors sac room", it is the perfect place to relax in the sun whilst keeping an eye on your children.
The perfect place for children and adults alike, you can learn how to ski or else soak up the sun whilst admiring the peaks of the Roc d’Aude and Cambre d’Aze.
The Costa Verde Area
For those that like to experiment with the off piste, the Espace Costa Verde free ride area is actually quite interesting for lift served off piste within the ski area limits.
When the snow and conditions are good you can pop over the back of the Roc d’Aude into this free ride area with its three black off piste runs.
Named after the local birds of prey, Épervier, Aigle Royal and Gypaète (hawk, golden eagle and vulture) are great on a powder day.
The BALCÈRE AREA
Les Angles offers some great runs for experts from the top of the Roc d’Aude and Mont Llaret.
The Roc de Peborny black follows the outer limits of the ski area starting out on the open ridge with some great views and then heading down into the tree line becoming a steep black.
The JASSETTE AREA
The Mur Mermet as its name implies is a wall run with some very steep sections underneath the Jassettes chair lift.
The smaller Sourcade noir is a black that runs peels off from the Sourcade pla del Mir blue run and runs parallel to the Sourcade village green run. However the black takes in a steep upper section.
