The most alpin and crowded race in the Pyrenees
2016 is the year of recognition! The Pyrenees will be on the international alpine skiing stage with Le Pays Toy doing the honors.
Obviously, this hasn’t been achieved overnight: this event is the result of 11 editions that began with the hosting of the Euskadi Championship, and from which stemmed the editions at Luz Ardiden resort, then incorporating the Ardiden Trophy, followed by an edition at Gavarnie. Since 2008, it was then hosted at Barèges and Luz Ardiden under the name of Altitoy.
Over the years, strong links have been formed between the two sides of the border around this sport, which is currently experiencing huge growth. Since the introduction of the race on the Grande Course circuit, this event’s reputation has stretched out across both sides of the Pyrenees, even reaching the Alps.
In fact, we hope to see the world’s best here and we would like to demonstrate that, despite the distance, there’s much to be discovered in the Pyrenees, in addition to alpine skiing.
The 9th edition will take place on February 27th and 28th, 2016. Once again, our goal is to present very attractive and alpine trails, including the so much desired pass by the Pic de Midi de Bigorre at 2.877 meters high.
Be aware that registrations will open up on December 9th.
We wait for you in Pays Toy, the ski mountaneering paradise of the Pyrenees.
See you soon.
