The Pyrenees are beautiful and the food and people great. But you will be lucky to get snow anywhere near the quality of North America or the Alps – strong sun, sea mists, wind and rain all take their toll. However, there has been a massive investment in infrastructure in recent years and the resorts, particularly in Aragon, are very well equipped and in mid-winter – with the right conditions – can offer world-class skiing and boarding at relatively keen prices. There are several first-class resorts near the Val d'Aran, such as Port-Aine, Boi-Taull and Basqueira-Beret. And in Aragon check out Formigal and Cerier. There is a focus on beginners, but some good off-piste as well. The quality of the food, particularly on the mountain, knocks spots off that at most Alpine resorts.
