Spain ski holidays

Think of Spain and picture snow not beaches and imagine the beautiful Pyrénées mountains, endless kilometres of wide-open pistes, some fantastic off-piste terrain and a laid back feel all wrapped up in wonderful Catalan hospitality. That's what you'll find in Baqueira Beret.

Spain at a glance
  • Undiscovered area
  • Quiet slopes
  • Laid-back nightlife

  • Excellent freeriding
  • Heli skiing available

It has the perfect combination of majestic mountains, un-crowded slopes, traditional family-run hotels and fabulous food, all at really reasonable prices. The nightlife is low key but if you are looking to relax with a glass of fine wine and some great food, Spain is just the ticket.

Spain is good for...

Everyone, really. A friendly and relaxed atmosphere, great skiing and facilities and a relatively new, still uncrowded ski area ticks all the boxes. And it's particularly great for intermediate skiers and boarders.

 

You'll find a great choice in accommodation too - everything is south facing to make the most of the sun. Childcare facilities for all ages are available, and there's an unmissable selection of traditional Spanish restaurants around, all serving up fab food and wine.

Eating like a local

Spanish cuisine is renowned for its tapas, smaller dishes which are perfect for sharing. Meals in Spain are an event and are meant to be savoured. You won't find yourself having a quick bite here!

 

Traditional dishes tend to include meats, potatoes and fish, all accompanied with plenty of fresh salads and vegetables. This is great hearty food which is ideal for fuelling a day on the mountain.
