Skiing in Font Romeu

Font Romeu has been built on the side of the Carlit mountain and presents sun and snow in abundance

Font-Romeu is  part of the Catalan Pyrenees and is justly proud of its delightful climate, its traditions and its surroundings.

This authentic village does host a modern and panoramic ski resort and it has two centres with Font-Romeu at 1650m and Pyenees 2000 at........, you guessed it, 2,000m

Getting here - fly, drive or take the train:

The resort is easily reached from Perpignan or Barcelona airport or the train station at Font Romeu. If you need details on driving directions, transfer options or train times - send us your dates and transport preferences from here

Skiing in Font Romeu

As you wind your way up in to Font Romeu, do look out for the Heliodysée which is the helix shaped building covered in glass - it is a research station looking into solar power and how to extract energy from the sun. With 2,750 hours of sunshine each year, the decision was taken that this was an ideal location for research. Visits can be arranged - see the Doing More tab and select Tourist information.

Font-Romeu is stunning and is surrounded by towering peaks that rise to 2900 meters - it claims to be the sunniest in France......but there are a few that claim that!

Skiing & Boarding in Font Romeu

The resort has 58km of downhill ski runs and 111 km of cross-country trails and the resort benefits from in excess of 500 snow cannons

The lift served area extends from 1800 metres to 2200 metres and there is a snowpark. 

The ski area is ideal for beginners and intermediates although there are a few blacks to keep you focused - the resort is popular with the Spanish so the busy weeks are the one's that coincide with the Spanish holidays more than the French holidays.

This resort is ideal for a family ski holiday.
