Off Piste Routes

The Luz ski area is actually quite interesting for lift served off piste located between 1730 and 2500 meters. When the snow is good you can ski down past Aulian to Sazos and beyond. From the summit of the Bédéret lifts you cross into a large east-facing bowl of the Combe des Aulhères, which offers 800 meters of vertical. Before you reach the Bédéret road a traverse brings you back to Aulian.

Le Soum d’Arriou-Ne at Luz

The Aulian bowl offers some interesting terrain although rather too close to the pistes for some tastes.

From the Col de Cloze we spotted some interesting possibilities to the east in the Cirque de Cloze, here you are completely outside the ski domain in a real mountain environment with the additional risks that entails. The descent though a large valley brings you out on a track that leads to the village of Aynis. Watch out for cliffs after the lac de l'Espuguette.
