Skiing & Snow Boarding in Sierra Nevada, Spain

Our base in Almuñécar is only just over an hours drive from the main Sierra Nevadaskiing slopes of Sol y Nieve in the Sierra Nevada.  Here we offer skiing and snow boarding in the winter season (approx. 01 Dec – 30 Apr).  The resort, based around the village of Pradollano (2100m), is the most southerly ski resort in Europe and ranges from a high spot of around 3400m to a lower limit of around the 2000m mark.  When the weather is clear you can see straight over the Mediterranean to the mountains of the Rift Valley in Africa!

Skiing in Pradollano, Sierra Nevada, Spain

Sol y Nieve successfully hosted the 1996 World Ski Championships andSkiing in Siera Nevada can offer a long season from early December through to early May if the snow gods smile, with enough to keep intermediates happy on 102 km of pistes for quite a few days. 

 There are around 120 marked pistes: 18 green, 40 blue, 50 red and 8 blacks, served by a good network of lifts - click for piste map as well as an excellent snow park with a variety of jumps, rails and half pipes for all abilities, as well as timed video slalom course.

From our base here in Almuñécar we adopt a "hit & run" philosophy,Snow Boarding in Snow Park checking the conditions, web cams and snow reports for Sierra Nevada in advance and flexing the days we go up to get the best of the conditions while avoiding the weekend queues & traffic.

For non skiers it is still a great day out, as you can take the lifts to the mid station to enjoy the views, as well as enjoying the village with its bars & shops.  And, before you ask, yes - it is possible to ski in the morning and to sun bathe on the beach in the afternoon!
