The official opening date has just been released today – it’s Saturday 28th November – so start sharpening those edges and waxing those bases.

Poster for Sierra Nevada opening date 2017

The early opening is all down to the low temperatures we have have had for the last week.  These have enabled the use of the artificial snow canons in the Borreguiles beginners area over the last couple of days.

Exactly how big the opening area will be won’t be known until Friday night, but today (Wed 25th) the pisteurs had already prepared nearly 2 kilometers around the ski chairlift at around Emile Allais and the Borreguiles carpet lift.

Access to the area will by the Borreguiles gondola lift, which runs to and from the resort of Pradollano.  As usual, a reduced price lift pass will be offered of €20 (youth €18 & juniors €16) which will run until 2nd December.

Meanwhile, the artificial snow system will continue to run, depending on the temperatures, with snow production in adjacent areas being incorporated into the ski area.

The station will also open the Mirlo Blanco recreation area and also have a restricted piste for wooden sledges in the final stretch of the Rio piste available.

Finally, as a bit of a bonus, underground parking in the Plaza de Andalucía car park will be free until December 2, 2015.
