Ax 3 Domaines Ski Resort France

Ax 3 Domaines is a surprisingly expansive ski resort in the French Pyrenees near Andorra. At its base, the spa town of Ax les Thermes is absolutely brilliant.

Whilst we slowly get around to building the information on the ski resort, check out the Ax 3 Domaines ski trail map.

Where is Ax 3 Domaines France?

The Ax 3 Domaines ski resort is in the Pyrenees of southern France, close to the borders of Andorra & Spain. The resort is around 130km (1¾hr) by road south of the major city of Toulouse, 200km (2¾hr) north of Barcelona, and 62km (1⅓hr) north-east of the Andorran capital, Andorra-la-Vella. The nearest major airports are Toulouse (TLS) & Barcelona (BCN). 

Regular train services operate between Toulouse to Ax-les-Thermes, so if Ax is your only travel destination, the recommended mode of travel to the resort is by rail. Should you be wishing to link a visit to Ax with nearby ski areas in the region (i.e. Andorra or other French or Spanish Pyrenees ski areas), we recommend a rental car. Note that some of the roads from the south (from Andorra & The Spanish border near Puigcerdà) to Ax can be rather ‘hectic’ during winter storms!

Rail services to the region can be taken direct from the Toulouse airport station into the central city station of Gare de Toulouse Matabiau, from where trains to Ax-les-Thermes can be boarded. Travel time from the airport to Ax is around 2¾hr.

Ax 3 Domaines Accommodation

At the base of Ax 3 Domaines, the spa town of Ax-les-Thermes is fantastic. Retaining much of its old-world charm, the vibrant town centre is loaded with wonderful bars & restaurants. When combined with the ease of access via train, a gondola leading up to the ski resort & a wide range of lodging options, Ax les Thermes is as good a French ski town as we have come across (maybe Chamonix aside!). Its major downfall is its low elevation equating to a lack of snow throughout the town for of the season, proving that no matter how good a place may be, they are very rarely perfect!

Review

The Powderhounds visited the valley base village of Ax les Thermes in 2020. Unfortunately driving rain (which the next day turned to driving snow) drove us away before touching any snow on the mountain at Ax 3 Domaines. We will provide some sparkling repartee, photos & insights on the brilliant Ax les Thermes & the French Pyrenees in the near (or distant) future.
