The snow’s here!

We’ve had to swap the bathing costume for the skis at the bat of an eyelid. November began with temperatures over 28 degrees, and ended with snow covered mountains.

Haven’t you dusted off your skis yet? What are you waiting for? The snowfall of recent weeks has meant it has been possible to open ski resorts in November, a record! We are hopeful this season will be nice and long…

Espot resort offers snow for all the family: slopes for the older members and a fun park for the littler ones.

Masella was the first ski resort in the whole ofSpainto get the new season going. A few days laterLa Molina,La Vallde Núria, Baqueira Beret and the cross-country resorts of Sant Joan de l’Erm, Tuixent-La Vansa and Lles followed suit. And during the last weekend of the month, Ski Pallars (Port Ainé and Espot), Port del Comte and Vallter 2000 took down their “closed” signs. And those that still hadn’t opened their gates did so during the December long weekend of 6-8.

In addition to skiing, in Baqueira Beret you can go shopping at the newly inaugurated Nou Baqueira Store shopping centre.

Night skiing and snow ploughs, a few unmissable novelties

The ski resorts have worked hard over the last months to improve the slopes and prepare new services. Masella is inaugurating a proposal that is as innovative as it is suggestive: night skiing. Thanks to the lighting system that has been installed in the complex you can now ski in the moonlight along 13 cross-country trails.

At Port del Comte beginners will find the ideal place to get an introduction to skiing. The resort has installed a new button lift in the beginners’ area which has made it the biggest in thePyrenees. And for lovers of snowshoeing, it is opening five new circuits for different levels of ability.

At the resort in Tavascan you can take a ride in a snow plough whose cabin seats eight passengers.

Discover the most fascinating, inaccessible places in the mountains in the new snow plough whose cabin seats eight passengers, one of the novelties on offer in Tavascan. Cross-country skiers can enjoy a new cross-country trail at Vallter2000, which is also inaugurating a new mountain activities area, and atLa Molinayou can take advantage of its new freestyle space.

At La Molina you will find a new space to do freestyle and a whole lot more. 

These are just a few of the novelties of a season that has had one of the best starts in recent years. What are you waiting for to hit the slopes?
