Also looking for the best one for us - has to have motorhome campsite nearby or preferably right on the lifts and maybe cheap warm chalets on the site too for my kids. Do you have any suggestions? It can be a smaller resort. Cost is a factor with us all. I guess ski passes are all of a muchness?

Resorts on de spanish side of the Pyrenees are considerably less expensive than their french cousins.
Cerler, Boi-Taull and Baqueira-Beret are the best resorts. BB is rather expensive for spanish standards, but well priced compared to France. Boi-Taull is an artificial resort (like Les Menuires but much much much smaller.

We usually find Barcelona the cheapest, but Toulouse is usually a shorter transfer. BA actually often are cheaper than the the budget airlines, also Vueling. There are campsites in Andorra, which although not in resort, nowhere is very far in Andorra.

If you want to go to the Pyrennées, Ryanair flights to Carcassone are also a good option

When we went to Andorra, we found that Vueling into Barcelona was by far the cheapest option.

We have been to pyrenees (andorra) a few times from both Barcelona and toulouse. I find there are more options for cheap flights to Barcelona as easyjet, ryanair, jet2 all fly there from most UK airports.

Whilst the distance is slightly further the roads, if driving, we find easier from the Spanish side. We also have a motorhome too and I'd prefer the drive up from barcelona.

If you drive to Grau Roig (it's the valley between Pas De La Casa and Soldeu) there are loads of motorhomes which park and stay in a car park right by the lifts. We've not stayed but it looks an excellent location but I'm guessing you have to be self sufficient, no hook up. I'm not sure on other accommodation in the Grau Roig valley but it is very well linked by lifts to the Pas side and there is a lift linking to the Soldeu side too.

If you're going to be on the Spanish side then Girona (Ryanair) and Barcelona are your only real options, although Toulouse is fine if you ski in Baqueira-Beret, and I guess Zaragoza is OK too if you'll end up on the western side.

I'm not too familiar with the campsite options in winter, but I know for a fact that there's a winter one in the Benasque valley (for skiing in Cerler), and at least one in the Val d'Aran (for skiing in Baqueira-Beret). I would imagine that there would be some that serve Formigal-Panticosa, and Astún / Candanchú as well. On the eastern side, I don't know, but if you're on that side then it's trivial to get to the French Catalan resorts, where I can't believe there wouldn't be any, what with the French love of camping.

How old are your kids? When we holidayed near Perpignan one of ours joined us via Eurostar and the TGV Paris>Perpignan and back. He got a 1st class ticket for a very competitive price. His 07:15 train in Perpignan got him back to Brighton in time to watch a match kicking-off at 19:30. I've visited a friend for skiing in the French Pyrenees by flying to Montpellier (easyJet and BA) and then taking the train to Perpignan to be picked-up there.

@poppyb, you can park your motor home for free in the big car park at El Tarter by the Gondola. Also I’ve just returned from Barcelona on EasyJet at a cost of under £100 for two of us, but no hold luggage.
