Championship snow

Catalunya is snow. If what you’re looking for is the emotion of big national and international competitions, go to the Catalan Pyrenees where the excellent infrastructures and services provided by the ski resorts make them the perfect place to hold all sorts of quality sports events. One example is the La Molina resort, which will be hosting the Snowboarding World Cup in February.

Getting ready for the Barcelona-Pyrenees candidature for the 2022 Winter Olympics, and to test your level, the world snowboard event in La Molina, the World Cup from 14 to 15 March, has summoned the best riders of the boarder cross speciality (an Olympic event since 2006) who will make their descents individually and then four by four including jumps, obstacles and banked curves.

Also during the month of February, the 35th Marxa Beret race will be held in Baqueira Beret, Spain’s main cross-country skiing race included in the Euroloppet, the main European circuit of marathons in this modality. This race scores International Ski Federation (ISF) points.

Sports events continue at Catalan resorts in March and April, whether you participate or are a spectator. If you like cycling and skiing you will have a unique opportunity to enjoy the two sports with the arrival of the 94th Volta Ciclista a Catalunya road race in La Molina on 26 March and in Vallter 2000 on 27th. Two emotional finishes full of snow. And at Boí Taüll Resort, at the end of January, you can ski and a lot more at the Esquiada 40 Principales/In Eleven Surf3 skiing competition.
