Skiing in the Sierra Nevada

Esquiar en Sierra Nevada

There are few places in the world where you can ski in the morning then head to the coast for a swim in the afternoon, but the proximity of Sierra Nevada to the Mediterranean allows this. Don’t be fooled into thinking that the skiing will be second rate either. 20 lifts serve 100 km of piste at the Sierra Nevada but it can get busy at the weekends with bottlenecks at the lifts. The pistes lend themselves to the intermediate but there is ample off-piste skiing for the advanced riders. Off the pistes, there are some good restaurants and lively bars. If you get bored or the snow is not as good in the Sierra Nevada, just head for a beach!
