The Sierra Nevada can be translated to mean Snowy Mountain Range; the perfect name for what it offers. It has some of the highest peaks in Europe, so it sees plenty of snow and enjoys a long season, often extending from November to May.

As it’s not one of the most recognised ski resorts in the world, the price of skiing in the Sierra Nevada is lower than other European resorts, making it ideal for trying it out with the family.
Great For Beginners
Thanks to the high altitude of the peaks, the majority of the skiing takes place in ski fields, rather than narrow tracks and they are above the tree line. So if you’re feeling nervous, or if you’re a beginner this is a more reassuring option.
