High in the Andalucian Panibetic mountain range we find Spain’s best resort- Sierra Nevada. Not only is it Europe’s most southerly ski resort but the village is also one of the highest, at 2,150 meters.

Remember to bring your suntan lotion because this is officially the sunniest resort in Europe. And if you’re worried about the sun affecting the snow conditions then don’t- Sierra Nevada is nearly entirely covered by an advanced artificial snowmaking system.
Beginners visiting Sierra Nevada will be pleased with the well groomed greens and blues on offer here but the resort is probably best suited for intermediates. The long reds (the longest is 6.5km and runs all the way from the summit of Veleta mountain at 3398m down to the village at 2,150m. Advanced skiers will find some challenges including a men’s downhill world cup run.
For snowboarders there is a well kept half pipe and board park and some opportunity for freeriding.
Off the slopes there is plenty to do with saunas, a gym, snowmobiling, sleigh rides and plenty of shopping. The après ski is lively and typically Spanish- that means partying well into the early hours- and there are plenty of bars and clubs to party in.
