Baqueira (pronounced Bakira) in Spain is off the beaten track in the ski world, but that's a good thing as it's still largely undiscovered.
This means 120kms of quiet, uncrowded slopes, plenty of places to sit for lunch and very special, laid-back feel - just what you'd expect from a ski holiday in Spain.
With a skiing altitude of 1500 to 2510m, this is the perfect resort for intermediate and advanced skiers and boarders. The 78 well-manicured pistes and miles of ultra-enticing freeride areas are just waiting to be explored.
And this being Spain, the après-ski is just as important as the mountain. No worries about finding a suitable lunch or place for a evening drink around here.
