Spanish Ski Resorts
Although Spain is normally thought of as a summer paradise, known for long, beautiful beaches and azure sea, as the second most mountainous country in Europe, Spain also offers an excellent winter season of skiing. Benefiting from long hours of sunshine in the winter months, Spain’s ski resorts offer spectacular mountain views, expertly maintained runs and the perfect balance of snow and sunshine.
Sierra Nevada, one of Spain's largest ski resorts, is the most southernmost in Europe, giving skiers the opportunity to soak up the sun rays on a day out on the slopes. Reaching elevations of up to 3,282m, skiing in Spain is not to be scoffed at - the fantastic altitude means that higher resorts are relatively snow-sure and can provide a unique experience for those looking to try something other than the usual European resorts.
Many of Spain's resorts are gentle and cruisy and, with their uncrowded nature, it is the perfect choice for many beginners or intermediates looking to carve up some new terrain.
