The charming village resort of Cauterets has a varied range of ski slopes spread across the width of its two ski areas. The first, Cirque du Lys, is a vast area dedicated to skiing and snowboarding. The second area, le Pont d'Espagne, is a breathtaking ski area, nestled right in the heart of the Pyrénées national park. It has been developed for snowshoeing, sledding or cross country skiing. The Lys Gondola that heads up from the village is quick and comfortable and accesses the ski slopes in the Cirque du Lys (the village to the top takes 12 minutes!). For “nu-skool” freestylers, it is worth noting that the Cirque du Lys has a Freestyle Park ranked among the top 10 in France. Open to all, it is composed of 2 zones; the Mini-Cross and the C-Park. Cauterets isn't only a ski resort, as a natural spa town that is renowned for its sulphur rich spa waters and revitalising relaxation centres. There are two spas in the town, both welcoming children and adults from February to November. Well known for the treatment of respiratory and rheumatology problems, the Cauterets spas also offer conventional spa packages for 6 or 12 days. Far away from the worries of daily life, the spas welcome those who are already seasoned spa veterans and those who have not yet discovered the benefits of a true relaxation session in the thermal waters. Situated at only 200 metres from the centre of Cauterets and the Lys Gondola, the baths offer everyone a moment of well-being and potentially add another interesting aspect to your relaxing getaway... Cauterets is an ideal holiday destination for families wanting to spend quality time together. The whole resort is set up so that children feel comfortable and secure. Various companies and organisations provide day care, recreation centres, a playground and a juniors club, each allowing the kids to live moments they'll never forget. After skiing there is a range of activities to keep you occupied in Cauterets. The town has swimming, ice skating, tennis, bowling, a climbing wall, but also a cinema, a library and of cause not forgetting the local Cauterets Casino.
