About Us

  • 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!

Who Are We?

Sierra Essence and the British Ski Center is a Spanish limited company established in December of 2006 by Giles Birch & Jonathan Buzzard.

Our business focuses in two prime areas:



1. An Intermediary Booking Agency for Ski and Activity breaks/holidays whereby through our mediation with local businesses, agencies, hoteliers and other suppliers, we can arrange any or all of your package requirements (except flights). Sierra Essence is not a Travel Agency or Tour Operator and thereby is under the sole legal obligation of pertaining to a fully comprehensive Public Liability Insurance without any necessity of subscribing to ATOL bonds or similar.

2. Our Ski School (British Ski Center) is dedicated to the tuition of skiing and snowboarding alike in Sierra Nevada.

Both sides of the business are effectively web based via three prime websites: www.sierraessence.com, www.sierranevada.co.uk & www.britishskicenter.co.uk. As a "virtual" identity in this respect we have no physical office to speak of except during the winter months in Sierra Nevada, where the British Ski Center operates out of Intersport Rio Sport equipment hire shop in the Plaza de Andalucia. For the remainder of the year, our business operations are home based.

The company is registered under the name of: Sierra Essence Ski & Mountain Center 2006 S.L. with fiscal ID: ESB18803262.

Our company address is: C/Pico del Goteron 7, 18160 Güejar Sierra, Granada, Spain.
