For the pros, demanding slopes to wish for
Pyrénées2vallées - Val Louron is much more than just a beginner's area. With its 6 red slopes and its very technical black slope, the resort guarantees a real challenge even for experienced riders. Over a length of 600 metres, rub shoulders with the very steep and unpacked slopes of the Isards black slope! This still wild space tests your riding skills. It is known to be one of the most difficult in the Pyrenees! A little easier to access, the blue Lapadé run promises you 3km of pure pleasure on the edge of the ski area, between panoramic views and tight bends. Looking for thrills? The Les Cimes freestyle area and its tables, jumps and other modules await you at the top of the resort at 2100m altitude.

Go down the slopes of the Louron valley by mountain bike
Return to the solid ground and ride down the slopes of the Val Louron resort in summer, by mountain bike. The resort of Val Louron offers two easy mountain bike routes: start with a 3km descent on Le Tuco from the peaks of Sarrouyes to the resort. If your motivation is intact, continue to Le Nabias, which takes you into the valley to the village of Génos (6km). When you arrive, why not continue with a slightly more technical track? From Balnéa, the circuits of the Lake and the Neste du Louron take you to discover the villages of Loudervielle, Armenteule and Vielle-Louron as well as the lake of Avajan. If you are still not satisfied, the Louron Valley inaugurated the Skyvall cable car in the summer of 2019 to link Loudenvielle to the slopes of Peyragudes, another exceptional place for your mountain bike rides.
