Ski Areas

  • 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!

This is a great area for getting your teeth into the technique and sensations of carving and free riding which has exploded on the slopes over recent years.

Heavy implementation of snow cannons in the area have guaranteed great skiing here.

The area is typically quieter than Borreguiles, making for a peaceful escape from the hubbub of high season periods.

The World Cup Giant Slalom and Slalom black runs, the "Fuente del Tesoro" and "Neveros" are accessed from this area as well as a few others which are guaranteed to test your speed control or at the very least your adrenaline limits.

The expansive, gentle rolling, open fields that make up the Lomar de Dilar area make it a superb spot for also enjoying and improving off-piste techniques after fresh snow falls.

Sulayr Superpark

The 2014-15 winter season saw the Superpark hit new heights by boasting the longest line of slopestyle in Europe. With a total of 71 different modules and ramps, it is possible to rack up to 46 of these in just one descent!

Slopestyle has been of significant focus  since 2012-13 in particular and it has paid off very well indeed with Sierra Nevada recieving International repute for it's efforts and design ingenuity. Having hosted world class events including the World Junior Championships (2012), the World Snowboarding and Freestyle Championship Finals (2014) and the Winter Universiade Games (2015).

The halfpipe is Spain's largest descending an impressive 165 metres with walls surpassing 6 metres high.
