Resort overview

With views of some of the highest peaks of the Pyrenees (Mount Aneto and Maladeta), Superbagneres offers a stunning backdrop to some great group skiing. Superbagneres ski station has three main skiing areas. The first (Secteur de Techous) is perfect for learners, beginners and improvers with plenty of sunny greens and blues to practice on. The second (Secteur du Lac) has longer, more challenging runs with a good choice of blues, reds and blacks. The third (Secteur de Cecire) is more suited to the accomplished skier or snowboarder, with long reds and blacks.

Superbagneres is 2,260m at its highest and 1,440m at its lowest and the 125ha ski domaine opens up 32km of pistes. There are:

  • 7 red runs

  • 5 green runs
  • 1 three-kilometre-long cross-country ski run

Where to stay

The ski station itself is well-equipped with large car parks, cafes, restaurants, ski shops, ski pass offices, a large hotel and some self-catering flats but the town of Luchon is the place to stay if you don’t want to be isolated at the top of a mountain at the end of a great day’s skiing.

Luchon is a buzzing town, with plenty of apres ski fun and plenty of choices for accommodation; hotels, self-catering, B&Bs, chalets, apartments and large houses for groups. See our holiday directory for some tried and tested suggestions or visit Luchon’s tourist information site for an exhaustive list of the options.
