To start skiing, which resort to choose in Ariège?

Of course, all Ariège stations have a beginner's area and a piou-piou space so that children can progress smoothly and familiarize themselves with the slopes. Despite everything, we have made a selection of intimate, family resorts, ideal for starting to ski!

  • Ascou
    A beautiful resort nestled in the heart of a preserved environment, at the foot of the Pic du Tarbésou and the Col de Pailhères. 18 slopes including 10 green & blue ideal for beginners!
  • Goulier
    A low-cost resort with a big heart! Under the gaze of the Pique d'Endron and the village of Goulier, the 7km of slopes are ideal for beginners! Far from the crowd of large resorts, they facilitate the progression of all skiers.
  • Mijanes
    On the other side of the Col de Pailhères, accessible only from the Aude in winter, the resort and its 15 downhill ski slopes promise beautiful descents for beginners, in the heart of Donezan, the “little Quebec Ariégeois”
