The cirque of Gourette is a classified site thanks to its numerous natural sites and the protection of the surrounding landscape. Dominated by the Col d'Aubisque and the Pic de Ger, Gourette is a mythical destination located on the thermal water route. Its natural and authentic heritage combines perfectly with the innovative and modern architecture of the resort.
The first ski descents took place in 1903, but it was not until 1930 that the very first hotel was built. Then in the 1960s, the democratisation of winter sports allowed the acceleration of real estate and the development of tourism.
Discover the ski area
The Gourette resort is one of the 8 destinations of N'PY, which groups together the 8 best ski resorts in the Pyrenees, including La Mongie. Offering 40 ski runs over 1100 metres of vertical drop, the Gourette ski area will surprise you with the diversity of its terrain. Its numerous skiing areas are perfect for all types of skiers.
The BEZOU beginners' area has been designed for skiers who wish to learn the basics of skiing in complete serenity. Fun runs, green slopes in the forest, everything to have fun while progressing at your own pace. For intermediate skiers, the Cotch sector offers blue runs to enjoy the magnificent scenery while skiing down the forest slopes. For high mountain enthusiasts, go to the Pène Blanque area, the highest point of the resort. You can ski down mythical slopes and enjoy an incredible panorama of the whole valley and the snowy peaks. Finally, for all the freestyle lovers, try new tricks in one of the 3 zones dedicated to thrill seekers: CintoPark, RailPark and KidsPark. Many modules are available for all levels!
All the resort's activities
Several snowshoeing routes are available from the resort. With a 360° view of the Gourette cirque, you will walk to the Col de l'Aubisque through fields of fresh snow, a paradise for snowshoe enthusiasts! As you move away from the groomed tracks, you can discover Nordic circuits to reach the peaks.
Discover the life of a musher and enjoy a dog sled ride to discover the great plateaus around. A natural escape that guarantees a unique experience in the heart of the Pyrenees.
For a thrill, will you try the Grande Tyrolienne? Suspended between two slopes, you will enjoy a breathtaking experience! Admire the slopes and the ski area after closing time on a groomer ride. Go up the slopes at sunset and discover the job of a groomer with the last rays of the sun.
