ski season

Depending on the snow levels, the season generally runs from the end of November or the beginning of December until the end of April or early May.

nightlife at the resort

There is a surprisingly active nightlife in the Sierra Nevada resort. Spaniards have a reputation for being night owls and this it often attributed to a hot climate that encourages people to lie low during the day and come out only once the cool of the evening has set in. However, the winter scene at Sierra Nevada contradicts this - or at least proves that old habits are hard to break.

who goes?

Most skiiers and visitors to Sierra Nevada come from Spain - mainly Madrid and the cities of Andalucía. According to the statistics from 2009/2010, over 90 per cent of those using the facilities at the ski station were Spanish. Out of the foreigners skiing in Sierra Nevada only 6 per cent were British.

when to go

You would do well to carefully plan your ski holiday in Sierra Nevada, keeping in mind that the last week of February children from schools across Andalucia have one week off school, presumably to enjoy the snow and go skiing, which is why it's called "White Week" (Semana Blanca). Most children don't actually get to go skiing, but February is reported to be one of the busiest months, so beware. Also, as would be expected weekends and banks holidays are particularly busy.

Look no further for your snowboarding or ski holiday.Whether it’s a more luxury hotel experience that you prefer or a cheap skiing holiday deal or package that you require, the Sierra Nevada ski resort in southern Spain will provide you with what you’re looking for.
