Skiing in the Alps vs skiing in the Pyrenees

Skiing Travel Guide: Alps vs Pyrenees



Fall-Line Reader and guide Robert Mason has pointed out a couple of errors on the above infographic, which was made by Europcar:

The height for Val Thorens is quoted as being 3200m, which is the height of the highest lift, not the resort height. Using the same logic, the highest lift in the Pyrenees tops out at 2875m on the Pic du Midi de Bigorre, not at 2000m as quoted above.

Also, Grand Tourmalet is the closest Pyrenees resort to London, just a 40 minute transfer from Lourdes airport.
