Europe's sunniest ski resort
When you book a school ski trip to Alp 2500, there’s no need to worry about poor weather – this is Europe’s sunniest ski resort! Linking the two ski towns of Masella and La Molina, Alp 2500 is the largest ski area in Catalonia and offers a fantastic Pyrenean skiing experience. And there’s no need to worry that all that lovely Spanish sun will turn the slopes to slush – most of the slopes are actually north-facing and set high up the Pyrenees. In fact, Alp 2500 is considered a ‘dead-cert’ for snow! Plus, you’ll be able to enjoy these fantastic skiing conditions without the high prices and crowds that are sometimes associated with skiing in the Alps.
Interested in this resort?
The two main areas, La Molina and Masella, offer your students different skiing experiences. La Molina offers gentle, wide runs, which are ideal for beginners to practise and improve on. Masella offers exciting tree-lined runs, which are better suited to more experienced skiers looking for their next adventure. But both offer extensive beginners’ areas at the foot of the mountain, as well as good progression runs from the top of the mountain all the way back to the resort. As well as a wide variety of runs for all abilities, the resort also has two snow parks and a superpipe. The infrastructure throughout Alp 2500 is highly developed and features high-speed ‘jet’ lifts and an integrated artificial snow-making system. Skiing starts high, at 1700m, and the north-facing slopes mean that all 141km of pistes are snow-sure.
The resort was fantastic for mixed ability groups, as there were a variety of blue, red and black slopes. The distance from the hotel to the ski lifts was so short (5 minutes), which was great. We really loved that we were able to have a locker to put all the skis and boots in overnight - this made getting students organised and off to their lessons much easier.
