Why enjoy a ski trip to Font Romeu?

 

The Font Romeu Ski Resort is one a skiing reference in the South of France. The skiing domain is combined with the Pyrénées 2000 domain, in order that both resorts have 44 alpine skiable kilometres and 111 kilometres to practise nordic skiing. All of the slopes are located in the French Cerdanya, which is surrounded by great views and mountains. This resort is ideal for families because of it's nice atmosphere.

The facilities of the resort have 22 marked circuits, 41 ski tracks, 504 snow cannons, 23 ski lifts, 1 snowpark, 1 gondola, 1 leisure area, 2 sledge routes, 4 skiing schools and 1 biathlon stadium.

 

 
What makes Font Romeu so special?

 

The facilities are what really charactherise Font Romeu, especially for families. Different areas inside the resort are great to learn how to ski with kids. For children, the resort has available a nursery for kids that are at least 18 months old.

Nevertheless. the best about the resort is the 20 hectare area where you can enjoy the slopes and the descents with a lot of trees and great views, especially aimed for kids and beginners. In conclusion, at the Font Romeu Pyrénées 2000 resort you will be able to enjoy nature with large areas with authentic character. 
 
If you are a snowboarder, the resort counts with one of the best snowparks in Europe, that has been remodelled in order to host different international sport events. In fact, in December 2017, the complex celebrated the Freestyle World Cup at their facilities.

Regarding the gastronomy of the area, we recommend to go to Les Airelles, right at the heart of the resort. There you will find a restaurant with the same name, where you can enter with your skis on! The facilities of the building are also adapted to children's necessities. There are daily menus that go from 8€ to 12€. Great value options.
 


 
Snow activities in Font Romeu 


Apart from the advantages for beginners and children, Font Romeu offers other alternatives to skiing to let everybody enjoy the snow. One of the favourite is going for a snowshoe excursion. The fact is that Font Romeu has 11 circuits for this purpose. The most common route is around 4 km long with an easy climb that goes from La Pleta de Farnés to the Coll del Pam viewpoint.

Another experience that people enjoy is Snake Gliss, a strange form of descending in a sledge. This practise is on a couple of platforms that put together, in order to descend, so it looks like that you are descending the slopes on some kind of snake.
 

 
Après-ski in Font Romeu

 

There are many options to go for, for all tastes and preferences, because of the fact that in the area it is possible do to many cultural visits. For example, in Odeillo you can see the Forn Solar parabolic, the first solar oven with industrial capacity built in the world which is registered as a Historical Monument as from 2009.

We also recommend discovering the territory and specially the villas that have been declared Humanity Heritage by the UNESCO. It's worth exploring Montlluís and Vilafranca de Conflent. Definitely, Font Romeu is a resort with sunny slopes and facilities to enjoy the snow in a great way. The visits that can be done in the area will make you enjoy a great weekend.
 
Another reason to choose Font Romeu as your destination is the gastronomy. When skiing is over for the day, at the town you will be able to find restaurants and cafes for all tastes and preferences. We recommend la Table des Saveurs (with great French mountain gastronomy).

It is worth parking up the mountain as it is free, the lifts are of good quality, there is always staff on hand,
I was only there for 2 days and I thought that every night they put some artificial snow on the slopes if necessary, but there are some slopes where that doesn't happen. But we still skied perfectly, I totally recommend it.

I was accompanied by relatives who were skiing for the first time and I think this season is ideal for it, you just have to know how to avoid the French school holidays, the Spanish never arrive here en masse so if you look at the French calendar you will be fine, it will never happen more than five minutes waiting in a ski lift and that for me is almost more important than everything else.
That sometimes it can be packed with children and classes and teachers and... In short, avoid French school holidays and skiing without many people.

Ideal slopes for intermediate level, long and varied Landscape and surroundings Accessibility to slopes Easy parking although you have to go early
Too many people Access of people to the area of slopes that do not ski Long queues to order at the cafeteria on the terrace Keep in mind that the opinion of the overcrowding of people is due to the fact that during the month of February it is a holiday period in France

The only bad thing is that the slopes are separated into 2 parts that are joined by 2 green slopes where it is easy going with snowboard to stay stopped and have to walk.

Shabby weekend. The ski lifts are old, slow and stop constantly. Eternal queues are made in the ski lifts due to the few chairlifts (almost all of 4) and their slowness. Sunday in the pla of calm we were more than 45 minutes in the tail of the climber. The winches to the ski lifts were broken and 4 tracks closed for competition. In general a disaster.

The diversity of tracks, the number of chairlifts, the short wait to get on the gondola and chairlifts.
Little respect for beginners. Maybe something should be done from the station itself. The greens were full of skiers in certain sections, which made learning skiing difficult.

Since I am a beginner I can only talk about the green, blue and some red tracks. The tracks are wide and comfortable. The inclination allows to play and explore to gain confidence and to refine the technique. And all this with the landscape of the Capcir in the background. Spectacular!
The connections between ski lifts are sometimes a bit heavy. There are places where you have to move by rowing with batons.

All very well
Lack of medical services in the fields, execpte emergency. I suffered a mild sprain and wanted me to assess the flexion strain, and was told that there was no doctor. They told me that if you hurt half track you collect, you go down and then you buscquen an ambulance or fire. I think it is an important shortcoming. In part, believe that the insurance covers you, then? I do not understand

I liked much for beginners, it is small but has good tracks to learn. If you are an expert in no time you touring the entire season ..
I not liked the connection between the different areas, in some cases the only way to get from one valley to another is green (rowing) or black. There should be some intermediate track ..
