Skiing in the Gard

The Cevennes to the musketeers, crossing the Adriatic from the Causses, the garrigues and the Camargue, the Gard has everything to seduce. A territory of 2000 years of history that has been the cradle of romance, three sites listed as world heritage by Unesco, exceptional historic cities and remarkable urban places…. The Gard is also a department where you can practice a variety of outdoor activities, especially in winter, at the peninsula of Mont Aigoual, In the small ski resort of Prat Peyrot (now renamed Alti Aigoual), where there is downhill skiing (14 trails), cross-country skiing (65 km of trails) and snowshoeing, as well as sledding… all the pleasures of skiing await you in the heart of the Cevennes National Park, only 1h30 from Nîmes and Montpellier.

The Gard ski resort, Alti Aigoual

The most popular ski resort unknown of the country is undoubtedly in the Gard. Indeed, one thinks of the sea rather than snow in the Gard department. The charming ski resort of Prat Peyrot, located in the hollow of the Col de Prat-Peyrot, receives you in the heart of the Cevennes, 1h30 from Nîmes and Montpellier, on the massif of the Aigoual.

The Val d’Aigoual is home to a only station ski resort, the Val d’Aigoual, which has been privatized. In order to promote outdoor activities throughout the year and not only in winter on the Aigoual massif, the municipality of Val d’Aigoual has recently entrusted the management of the facility to Aigoual Qualité 1567 under a public service contract whose objective is to develop outdoor activities all year round.

The resort, which is located in the PyreneesThis was more and more difficult to open each year, due to the high demand. For the time being, it is out of the question to modify the installations. The new licensees will invest in new snow guns to continue the activity.

Summer/winter ski resort

The Alti Aigoual Resort offers two distinct locations: the Restaurant – Bar & Gites and the Observatory in summer at the top of Mont Aigoual at 1567m, and the Self Le Chalet, the Bar After Ski on the slopes of the Prat Peyrot pass in winter.

More than 60 km of cross-country snow, 2 luge tracks and kilometers of snow-shoes.
