Freeriding, terrain parks and pistes
in St Lary


Freeriders looking for vast powder bowls are not going to get them here. Advanced and hardcore riders wanting major long steeps are going to find this place a bit easy and without too many challenges. The cluster of black runs off the Tortes chair offer some opportunities for freeriders to excel on fairly featureless terrain.

Alternatively, the area known as Bassia is pretty cool, which will suit riders looking for trees to shred.


Freestylers will find the the Quicksilver Snowpark interesting, with its long boardercross circuit, an improved pipe, and a series of decent hits. The parks split into three definite areas: the family park, which is great for beginners, the slide park which is full of rails and the snowskatepark, which is a fun slopestyle run.


Riders looking for fast, wide piste to lay out big turns will find the few reds to be basic but okay. They should also provide some early learning opportunities to novices who are getting to grips with steeper terrain.


Beginners will certainly find the easy blues spread out across the resort perfect for learning, with a mixture of chairlifts and drags to ferry you around. The short, easy stuff reached from Saint Lary Pla D'Adret will sort you out before taking the runs over on Vallon Du Portet. The Corniche is a long, easy blue that freeriding novices will soon be able to handle.  READ NEXT: Village life, accommodation & nightlife
