Europe's most southerly resort
Snow sure
Best for beginners and intermediates

Resort Information

Europe’s most southerly resort, Sierra Nevada is just a short drive from Granada and Malaga airports. With slopes that boast spectacular views across the Mediterranean, it may not surprise you that this is also Europe’s sunniest resort. But you may be surprised to discover that, despite this, it’s still very snow-sure, thanks to the altitude and excellent snowmaking capabilities. This welcoming resort offers plenty to entertain your students in the evenings too, with shops, restaurants and other exciting après-ski activities.

Skiing Information

Sierra Nevada is made up of six areas all with unique characteristics that between them provide plenty of variety for all levels of skiers, including beginners who have a fantastic dedicated area to learn in. With the highest lift reaching 3300m, your students will love the experience of high-altitude skiing under the Mediterranean sun.
