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, the Spanish 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 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 ski resorts.

Many of the Spanish ski 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. To find out more about skiing Spain and book your 2024/2025 ski holiday today, please contact our ski experts.

Much of the skiing is split between the Granada area which features resorts such as Sierra Nevada, Spain’s highest resort (3,300m), and the Spanish Pyrenees with Spain’s largest resort, Baqueira (160km of slopes). A lot of the skiing in these destinations is above the tree line and on large, wide-open pistes with magnificent views. Easily accessible off-piste is also on offer in many of the Spanish resorts with terrain suitable for every level of skier.

Throughout the Spanish ski resorts, there are fantastic choices of mountain bars to enjoy sunny patio drinks on and numerous cosy bars to relax in until things start to kick off around 11pm. There aren’t many ski areas where you can find yourself skiing in the morning and come evening enjoying flamenco shows in Granada with the possibility of a dip in the Mediterranean (if the water’s warm enough).

Despite Spain being perceived as a summer holiday destination, it’s high altitude makes the resort amongst one of the most snow-sure in the whole of Europe and the winter ski season often goes late into April. State-of-the-art snowmaking systems in many of the resorts mean that even in the low snow seasons the snow is always top-notch.
