Skiing & Snow Boarding in Sierra Nevada, Spain

Our base in Almuñécar is only just over an hours drive from the main Skiing in Sierra Nevadaskiing slopes of Sol y Nieve in the Sierra Nevada.  Here we offer skiing and snow boarding in the winter season.  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 and 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. Skiing in Sierra Nevada

 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.

From our base here in Almuñécar we adopt a "hit & run" philosophy, 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.

And, before you ask, yes - it is possible to ski in the morning and to sun bathe on the beach in the afternoon!
