A true duality
While in the valley the more smoothly. spring is established little by little, at altitude the SNOW still covers the ground. You will have to show up cautious and patient before embarking on high mountain hikes.
A reconquest of space
While, for safety reasons, some valleys are not accessible in the heart of winter, during the spring the disappearance of the snow makes it possible to find certain spaces. Little by little, the Ossoue valley, the Tech dam or Gloriettes lake become accessible again by car. In a second step it will again be possible to climb the cols and to switch from one valley to another, a little patience before passing the Col du Tourmalet!
Far from the fervor of summer, spring is the ideal season for hiking in complete tranquility in the most coveted sites. So you can fully enjoy a walk in the Gavarnie Cirque in Pont d'Espagne or the Estaing Lake. The more seasoned, equipped with ice axes, crampons or even cross-country skis, will be able to enjoy the spring snow as well as the beautiful panoramas in high mountain.
