Sierra Nevada opens season with 26 kilometers of skiing slopes

The southernmost ski resort in Europe, Sierra Nevada in Granada, opens this Saturday November 26th the season with the largest skiing area in history at the beginning of the season.

For this last weekend in November Sierra Nevada is ready with snow depths of 20 centimeters to 1 meter in the areas of Borreguiles, Veleta, La Laguna de las Yeguas and in the area of ​​Loma de Dilar, where this year opens a ‘half pipe’ located in the snow park Sulayr. Sierra Nevada is now the only station in Spain with sufficient snow to start the season.

The ski resort is located in one of the two national parks in Andalusia and from its peaks you can see on clear days the Mediterranean Sea and the African coast.

Skiing and freestyle lovers can enjoy a wide variety of slopes and facilities for the enjoyment of snow sports as well as hotels, restaurants and so on to make pleasant your stay at 2,000 meters above sea level. The nightlife in Sierra Nevada is also very famous. The area also offers many activities for non-skiers and children, thus the whole family can spend a fantastic day in the snow.

And do not forget that the highest mountain in the peninsula is located just an hour’s drive from the Costa Tropical of Granada and 90 minutes from the Costa del Sol in Malaga. The season in Sierra Nevada is also usually the longest due to its height and usually it is possible to ski until Easter; a time when we can see already the first bathers on the Costa del Sol. Thus Sol y Nieve (Sun & Snow) is not a media overstatement as in fact it is possible to ski and take a dip in the Mediterranean Sea on the same day.
