The authentic village ski resort!

The Resort

The authentic mountain village of Les Angles is proud of its Catalan roots and culture. Its ski area is one of the best in the Pyrenees and offers picturesque views of its quaint churches and forests and lakes whilst the battalion of snow cannons and its excellent exposition mean great snow conditions.

The pretty village of Les Angles has a rich Catalan history and culture. The pistes above the village sweep down into the centre of the village which is based around a typical local church (its crowning glory) and its pretty central square, a pleasure to wander around. The village with its natural warm springs and the 'Espace Bluneige' leisure centre has a friendly, welcoming and relaxed atmosphere and is great for families. However, its very lively nights in its selection of restaurants and bars make it ideal for those looking for a night life as well.

The resort is a ski resort and so much more – there is an abundance of other cultural, exploratory and adrenaline activities for any non-skiers in the group. Why not try Biathalon or Canyoning in thermal waters during the winter months. A once in a lifetime experience!

Skiing

Situated above the pretty village of Les Angles lies the ski resort of the same name. The resort extends from 1,600 metres to 2,400 metres with 50km of lift served runs and 36km of cross country and snow shoe trails. It offers picturesque ski trails and views of the churches and the forests and lakes below. This ski resort has been a favourite resort for both French and Spanish for many years.

The resort also features 1 snow park and has 363 strategically placed snow canons to ensure great snow coverage at all times. Les Angles has two Nordic ski areas which are located on either side of the alpine ski area and contain 36km of marked and groomed trails ideal for cross country skiing and snow shoeing.

The Pla del Mir sector of the ski area and the Sources de L’Aude Nordic area can be accessed by road which is on the outskirts of the village on the road to Perpignan. The Balcère Nordic ski area can be accessed via the Ave de Balcère which turns off at the Tourist Office. Shuttle buses run from the “Pelerins” cable car station to both these areas.

Les Angles has plenty to offer mixed-ability skiers and families who appreciate a relaxed experience in stunning location with breath taking views. In addition to its relaxed, friendly environment and village and slope side safe areas for beginners and children, Les Angles also offers enjoyable and scenic cruising blue and red runs with a good and varied selection of blacks and some great off-piste possibilities.

The snow record at Les Angles is excellent due to the fact that 60% of the ski area is situated above 2,000m at high altitude. Furthermore, the ski areas north facing aspect means excellent snow conditions whilst the 363 snow canons covering 70% of the ski area ensure season long snow coverage. The well-groomed pistes are served by a modern and efficient lift system with three access points from the village itself. The resort has a real big-mountain feel with its three distinct and well linked sectors as well as the outlying Nordic ski areas which are easily accessed.
