5 reasons why you should ski in Sierra Nevada
The south of Spain is a worthy destination for most times of the year, but if you’re starting to plan out your next ski holiday, you should think twice before bypassing Sierra Nevada as a worthwhile option. Sunny and with nearby attractions, amongst the ski community, this is probably one of the best kept secrets!
We may not be able to indulge in skiing right now, but if you’re spending lockdown planning your next getaway – here are five reasons why the Sierra Nevada is a fantastic choice.
Did someone say sun?
When you think of ski getaways, you probably don’t think much about sunshine! But – some of the best ski destinations benefit from glorious sunny weather, and Sierra Nevada is no exception.
Thanks to the region’s southerly location, Sierra Nevada promises sunshine for over 80% of the day during peak season. That means you can take to the slopes in comfortable temperatures and maybe even get a tan if you’re out there for long enough!
With wonderful sun comes other benefits, which leads us nicely onto the next reason why you should be considering Sierra Nevada for your next ski holiday…
Yes, Sierra Nevada is probably one of the most unique ski getaways on offer because of its lengthy ski season. Whilst most resorts are closing up for the winter months in early April, Ski resorts in Sierra Nevada can often remain operating until May or even sometimes June!
If you’re a last-minute type of holiday goer, or want to avoid the peak season madness, you should seriously consider Sierra Nevada as a worthwhile destination.
Ski slopes for professionals and amateurs alike
Sierra Nevada is home to perhaps one of the most extensive ranges of ski slopes of any resort of its kind, making it a great option for groups or families where there is a distinct variation in abilities.
From beginners to seasoned pros, there is a ski slope for all levels and with over 110.4 km of pistes,19 of which are suitable for those still finding their feet and a further 7 intense runs for absolute professionals, there’s certainly enough to keep you entertained for the duration of your stay.
Excellent local attractions
Situated at the heart of Granada – and just a stone’s throw away from some of the country’s most famous attractions, including the magnificent Alhambra, which is home to much of the country’s rich history – you’re never far from something to do. If you’re looking to take a break from skiing, you can soak in the views, indulge in the delicious local cuisine or even take a trip to the beaches of the Costa del Sol, which are incredibly close!
