First snows of 2017/18 season in Sierra Nevada

 The Sierra Nevada ski resort is just up the road from us here in Almunecar and the news is that the first snows of the 2017 /2018 winter season have started this morning.

Down here on the coast we have had thunderstorms and rain, but the white stuff is coming down higher up from 2500m up to to the top of the resort mountain, Veleta at 2398m the summit of Mulhacen at 3479m.

The resort is planning on opening Sat 25th November and now sports a brand new logo, which was rolled out on Monday with a large presentation and audio visual presentation projected onto the walls of the Centro García Lorca de Granada.

The new logo incorporates what is seen to be more modern colours, a new font, a revised stylisation of Pico de Veleta and a nod to Granada itself.

Daily list pass prices for are pretty well in line with last year, running from €36.50 for Spring, €46 for low season, €48 for high season with a promo price of €44 for selected dates (pries given are for adults aged 17 to 59 – discounts for under 17s and 60 years plus).
