Sierra Nevada Skiing 2016 – 2017

The ski season has got off to a great start up at Sierra Nevada, with some good early snowfalls and the resort opening on schedule on Saturday 26th November.  The taster video below was shot from the top of Stadium chair lift on Tue 7th Dec – a cracking day with no wind and bright sun above the clouds in the valleys below gave us some superb early season skiing.

Sadly the cloud cover extended over the Mediterranean, so we didn’t get a chance to see the Riff mountains over the water in Africa, so consoled ourselves with a hot chocolate laced with the local rum!

As always skiing / snow boarding is a part of our winter activity options.  We realise, though, that first timers usually have to commit to a series of ski school lessons.  We can supply expert qualified tuition with English speaking instructors if you fancy a quick refresher.

However, for total beginners who’d like to join in we recommend using SnowBlades instead of trying to ski for the first time on full size skis. Snow Blades  are small skis only a foot or so long, which are easy to turn and steer.  Also, being a shorter than regular skis they aren’t as fast, so as a result you feel in control.  Highly recommended, as these will give you a superb taster of the fun to be had, without all the expense of having to book formal lessons, etc.
