  • 23/04/2017.....Farewell 2016-17!

    After a spectacular start to the winter season which effectively guaranteed the whole season ahead, Sierra Nevada will be closing the lifts down for this year as of 3pm this afternoon. The Winter Season of 2016-17 has officially been declared as the most successful campaign in recent years contributed initially by the fantastic snowcover received at the beginning of season, the consistently superior piste maintenance work and a natural influx in ski visitors. With the end of season due to finish next Sunday 30th, the decision to close early has been one of great consideration and due to basic safety concerns with the unusually high temperatures and lack of precipitation for the time of year, the resort management company have assessed the impossibility to maintain the slopes in adequate conditions for another week. We sincerely thank all our clients and anyone else who has benefited from our services this season and wish you all a very happy summer!

The Mirlo Blanco Recreation Zone & Other Activities

This landscaped area is located just beyond the Jara chairlift and down from the Al-Andalus gondola (Fuente del Mirlo & the "Mirlo Blanco").

hoyamoraMany shops hire out toboggans/bum-boards which, whilst not allowed on the pistes for obvious safety reasons, can be taken to several areas at the village level.

One of these areas is off from the Mirlo Blanco recreation zone along the track that leads away from it on the mountainside.

At the top of the village is another area called "Hoya de la Mora" which has a wide expanse available for tobogganing. There are rental huts and coffee stops here too.
