Pyrenees Skiing Holidays

Pyrenees Cycling Holidays

Nestled against the border of Spain, Luchon-Superbagneres, Peyragudes and the Spanish gem Baqueira Beret provide superb family friendly pyrenees skiing that represents great value for money.


The Pyrenees with an enviable snow record provides a welcoming and traditional skiing experience for British skiers, with many guests returning year after year.

Predominantly French, with a strong mix of Spanish, the charm of the Pyrenees remains relatively undiscovered in the UK, with Luchon-Superbagneres fondly called “le petit Chamonix” being the ideal skiing destination to experience the “Pure Pyrenees”


Our highly rated fully catered ski chalet packages feature excellent cuisine, comfortable accommodation for up to 10 guests in 4 rooms, a ski companion service in our featured resorts of Luchon-Superbagneres, Peyragudes and Baqueira-Beret, all underpinned by our personal service aimed at providing guests with a memorable pyrenees skiing holiday. 


Surrounded by many of the famous Tour de France cols, Bagneres de Luchon is the ideal destination for your cycling holiday in the Pyrenees.


As the historical home of cycling in the Pyrenees, Bagneres de Luchon has played host to the Tour de France over 50 times, including the start for the very first mountain stage of the Tour in 1910.


Peak Times operate a number of fully supported and independent cycling holidays throughout the year, aimed of groups of up to 8 riders. Our "Le Tour Special" is always in high demand along with other events linked to local and regional cyclosportives.


With our extensive knowledge and experience on the road, combined with quality accommodation and excellent cuisine, our "it’s more than just the bike" approach will ensure you have a challenging and enjoyable pyrenees cycling holiday.

Heavy snowfall over Christmas :

Tempete (storm) Bruno dumped almost a metre of fresh snow across the Pyrenees during the Christmas holidays leaving our local ski stations with tremendous conditions with all runs and lifts open. The latest snow depths are:

Luchon Superbagneres: 70cm/100cm

Baqueira Beret: 180cm/240cm

End of an Era - Final Winter Season:

We are sad to announce that the winter 2017/18 will be our last. After providing skiing holidays in the Pyrenees for over 12 years the joys of retirement and pre-retirement beckon.

We hope that many of our clients will return one final time, however before the snow arrives we would like to thank each and everyone of you who has shared our very special corner  of the French Pyrenees and our home in the stunning resort of Luchon-Superbagneres.
