Piau Engaly

A ski tour to Italy

The resort of Piau-Engaly, in the heart of the Haute Vallée d’Aure, is at the gateway to the Franco-Spanish frontier. Located at altitudes between 1,860 and 2,600 metres, Piau-Engaly is the highest ski resort in the French Pyrenees. Its skiing area extends over more than 65 kilometres and offers pistes for all abilities. 

RESORT-

Piau is one of the ski resorts with the best snow cover and is usually open until mid-April. Relatively simple transfers from both Pau and Lourdes airports – and long drives from the Channel ports are repaid in some seasons by snowfalls which can even outperform the Alps.
