A Guide To Sierra Nevada Skiing
Where is the Sierra Nevada Ski Resort?
Stationed in the province of Granada in south-eastern Spain, the Sierra Nevada skiing resort has earned a reputation for being amongst the best in the world for its optimal weather conditions and excellent range of facilities.
It’s actually the third highest peak in peninsular Spain, and the most southerly ski resort in Europe, which is evident if you ever go because the weather is fantastic. The perfect balance of snow and sunshine.
Reasons to choose Sierra Nevada for your next ski trip
We appreciate that with so many ski resorts out there, choosing just one location to spend your time and money can be tough. Here are four of our favourite reasons to choose Sierra Nevada:
Snow, snow & more snow
When it comes to snowfall, you’ll be hard pushed to find a better skiing spot that offers such depth of snow combined with glorious warm sunshine. In fact, Sierra Nevada sees over 400 inches of snow every single year, making it by far one of the most scenic places to don your skis.
Best range of ski slopes
Whether you’ve never taken to the slopes before, are a seasoned enthusiast or are looking to travel with a group whose abilities range drastically, Sierra Nevada ski resort can accommodate.
With over 120 different pistes on offer, you can enjoy some super easy slopes or challenge yourself with a handful of black slopes that promise to catch even the most experiences skier off guard. Still not convinced there’s enough variety on offer? Here’s a breakdown of exactly what you can expect:
- 19 green slopes – “very easy”
- 45 blue slopes – “easy”
- 53 red slopes – “difficult”
- 7 black slopes – “very difficult”
Take your pick, whatever you choose, you won’t be disappointed.
