skiing in the Sierra Nevada mountains in Andalucia Spain

Skiing in the Sierra Nevadas

Did you know that if you are on holiday with us between the end of November and the end of April you could have a day on the slopes? Just an easy 1 1/2 hour drive away, the Sierra Nevada ski resort is a fantastic day out. With runs suitable for beginners to experienced and great facilities for snow boarders , it is a fun day out for all the family.

The resort is over 3000 metres high, meaning that the snow is great even late in the season. Our snow record has been one of the best in Europe over the last few years, with the addition of snow canons to keep the pistes topped up to perfection.
You can even see the Mediterranean and the mountains of Morocco from the amazing Laguna side of the mountain, such a stunning view.
If you ski in the spring it can be beautifully warm, you could ski in a t shirt, in fact on the last weekend of the season they have a day where you get a free lift pass if you ski in a swimsuit 🙂

The prices are great too, with a lift pass averaging at around 40 euros, depending on the season and equipment hire is great value too. Another bonus is that the prices for food and drink are hardly more than the usual Spanish prices and best of all, if you avoid weekends and peak holiday weeks, you can almost have the pistes to yourself.

You could be riding or walking in the mountains in hot sunshine or enjoy a day at the beach one day and be skiing the next , and what better end to a tiring day skiing than to come back here for a lovely hot Jacuzzi- how great is that?
