Welcome to Sierra Nevada Ski Resort

Skiing in Spain’s Sierra Nevada mountains is a surreal experience. As one of Europe’s highest ski resorts, the lifts reach dizzying heights of more than 3000 metres. Yet on a clear, bluebird day, you can enjoy views of the Mediterranean Sea and even visit the beach on the same day. There’s nowhere else quite like it! Every level of skier can have fun here too. From a sweet collection of beginner-friendly green pistes and easygoing blues to powdery red runs and even a World Cup Giant Slalom course, there’s something for everyone.

Best time to ski in Sierra Nevada

When you think of Sierra Nevada, images of long, hot, sunny days probably spring to mind. And you’d be right! But with plenty of altitude, the snow is still impressive, and cannons keep the slopes well-groomed across the resort. In fact, the season is long, opening in November and closing at the end of April. Happy days! Catch early morning lifts to make first tracks on corduroy pistes in Spring. And aim for a midweek break to avoid the local weekend crowds. The best highlight of the Sierra Nevada winter calendar? It’s got to be the FIS Snowboard Cross World Cup in March. ¡Vamos!

Things to do in Sierra Nevada

In the resort itself, there’s heaps of fun to be had at Mirlo Blanco, a family amusement park complete with a wild rail toboggan track, snow tubing and slides. Hungry? Snack on delicious Spanish tapas and sip sangria before grabbing a siesta and hitting the bars and nightclubs later in the evening. ¡Salud!
