We have been to Baqueira twice, and will definitely go again. It has the perfect combination of scale, variety and quality at affordable prices. The ski area sits on three mountains which have an exceptional micro climate, however it is sometimes susceptible to long periods without snow, Good job it has a good snowmaking coverage to keep the pistes in great condition. For accommodation there is a good range of hotels and apartments in the main village, and the new gondola is highly efficient. The skiing starts in earnest at 1800, but the runs down to the resort are kept open all season. The centre area has some good intermediate runs, but for the most excitement you need to get out to the extreme sides of the area. Apres ski is a bit quiet, and there is a bit of a limited choice of restaurants.
