Experience Sierra Nevada – Spain’s highest ski station and Europe’s most southern,
With its high elevation the amazing Sierra Nevada ski station also boasts the longest ski season and offers skiing just 100 miles from the Costa Tropical though we doubt there’ll be swimming weather the day of our trip.
We’re all about the snow so we’ll be heading directly to the ski resort village, Pradollano, once we leave Nerja. The village stretches up a hill, starting at about 2,100 m above sea level, and is home to a large number of shops including boutiques for ski and apres-ski wear, sales and rental of ski equipment, souvenir shops and a small supermarket. Plus of course a variety of restaurants, cafés and bars to enjoy a warming cup, tapas or meal.
The ski resort summit is at just below 3,400m and about halfway up (at 2,675 m) is the mid-station, Borreguiles, which is served by two cable cars that run from the bottom of the village.
We do recommend taking the gondola up to the mid-station where you’ll find a few typical ski-slope cafés and restaurants and a great area (weather permitting) to sit at tables in the snow and watch the skiers come and go.
If you do want to take a run or two yourself please remember to allow time for ski hire and return if needed, and plan appropriately for the weather and the return trip.
