The most southern ski area of Europe is the Sierra Nevada, located in Spanish Andalusia. Part of this mountain range is the highest mountain on the Spanish mainland, the Pico Mulhacén with an altitude of 3481 m. The Spanish name of the mountain range says it all: Sierra Nevada means snowy mountain range. This sunny region guarantees sunny winter sports for you and your party. Or you could book a holiday home in the gorgeous city of Granada for example.
The advantage of this winter sports area is it can be combined with a beach holiday. The sun drenched beaches of the Costa del Sol for example are not far away from the Sierra Nevada. And of course you can enjoy the delectable Andalusian culture. You will find fabulous descents near Monachil, Gueiar Sierra and Dilar. The village Pradollano is located at an altitude of 2100m and gives access to more than 60 km pistes. There are 19 ski lifts and a fun park for the snowboarders. In 1996 the world ski championships were held here, and the Sierra Nevada has since been considered a fully fledged winter sports area.
Many Spaniards come here for a weekend skiing or snowboarding. All facilities like ski rental, restaurants and bars are here. And you can also enjoy a nice drink during après-ski. The winter sports season in Sierra Nevada runs from late November to end of April included. If you are looking for a holiday with sun, snow and a very rich culture, this is the right place for you. The ideal destination for any holiday maker! Book one of our holiday homes in the Sierra Nevada.
