avatar Yes; you can ski in Spain
February 27, 2014 11:19PM
Far from the cliché of beaches and summer tourism, there are almost forty ski resorts in Spain and a culture of mountain sports about a century old. And yes, the clichés also apply to ski tourism in Spain. The extraordinary gastronomy, the wines, the weather and the fiesta coexist with the other faces of the Spanish idiosyncrasy. Take it or leave it; although most of you will probably end loving it.

The most visited is the sunny Sierra Nevada. It is incredibly just one hour drive to the warm beaches of the Mediterranean Sea, but with a consistent five-month season and more than a hundred kilometres of groomed tracks in its 1.200 meters vertical drop. A thousand kilometres to the north are the Pyrenees, where you can find plenty of great-little-gem ski resorts and the other five most popular, like the well-endowed Formigal, the charismatic and posh Baqueira-Beret, the fetching Cerler and the doyenne Candanchú, home along with La Molina, to the first Spanish ski clubs and school.

As you may know, in Spain things, uses, mores and landscapes change dramatically every hundred kilometers. Therefore, skiing here you will find an incredible variety of traditions, food, drinks and tastes along with a great diversity of art forms, among which is especially remarkable the Romanesque style in the Catalan Pyrenees or the Arabic architecture in Andalusia. It is more of a comprehensive playful experience what you can get from your ski trip to Spain.

And yes, you can ski real snow. Spain is considered the second most mountainous country in Europe, and the ski-resort base is placed in average at 1,500 meters over the sea level. It is not maybe Utah powder but it is usually found the same quality of snow you can enjoy in France, Italy or Austria. As we said early, abundant snow in an experienced and well-greased ski industry, with such a huge variety of cultural attractions that, with a little time and effort to polish up some minor lacks, would be the envy of any ski resort in the Alps (and indeed it is for many who already know the potential of our mountains).

Welcome everyone! And don't hesitate to ask us any questions about skiing in Spain, we'll be happy to help! smiling smiley



Was ist apreschi?: Als Après-Ski bezeichnet man die in Wintersportorten angebotenen Vergnügungen für Touristen, die zumeist nach dem Skilaufen wahrgenommen werden. Dabei handelt es sich meist um Partys in Kneipen oder Diskotheken, bei denen viel Alkohol getrunken wird und Après-Ski-typische Musik gespielt wird. Après-Ski-Musik zeichnet sich durch eingängige Melodien und teilweise frivole Texte aus, welche zum Mitsingen und Tanzen ermuntern sollen. ¿Qué es apreschi?: el término Après-Ski hace referencia a los placeres que ofrece el esquí para los turistas, que, en su mayoría, son disfrutados después de esquiar. Estos son, principalmente, fiestas en pubs o discotecas, donde se bebe mucho alcohol y se escucha música típica de Après-Ski. La música de Après-Ski se caracteriza por sus melodías pegadizas y textos en ocasiones frívolos, que deberían alentar a cantar y bailar.

That's my point! I know some South American resorts better than most of those in Spain. So, if it will not be labelled as off-topic, I can put in this forum any relevant link/page/video on the matter smiling smiley

It is important that the people want it to know how is our country in terms of ski found here people than can help them.

If somebody want it to know something about Tena´s Valley I´m available to help and I encourage to the people to do the same in the rest of the ski resorts.
