See the ski slopes and ski lifts with our interactive Sierra Nevada ski map. Plan your day before heading to Sierra Nevada or navigate the mountains while you’re at the resort with the latest Sierra Nevada ski map. Our Sierra Nevada ski map shows slopes, altitudes, mountain restaurants, ski lifts and nearby ski resorts.
Sierra Nevada in Granada literally means “snowfall mountain range” and includes some of the highest peaks in Europe, not to mention the highest concentration of peaks over 3000m in the country. Mulhacén at 3482m is the highest mountain in the Iberian Peninsula.
The ski area is majestically at the foot of the irregular Veleta peak at 3398m, the third highest in Spain after Aneto (3404m) in the Pyrenees. Due to the altitude, the ski slopes are above the tree line and take the form of wide ski slopes rather than narrow groomed slopes, something that favors the more enthusiastic skier in particular as well as generally giving a feeling of overall confidence especially for off piste fans!
Backcountry skiing in Sierra Nevada has made a big name for itself. Open extensions lend themselves to finding easily accessible areas throughout the terrain with very little risk of avalanche according to European comparisons. It’s also something less experienced “backcountry skiers” love because there’s no need to hike to find good sections to learn!
There are 110 km of slopes here in Sierra Nevada, the longest is “El Águila” at 6.3 km. In addition to the ski slopes, there is a cross-country ski slope, a 2.5 km cross-country ski circuit and the incredible Sulayr Freestyle Park with a half pipe and a variety of jumps and rails.
The cable cars are open from 9 a.m. at 5 p.m. (last cable car at 4:45 p.m.) although also, during festive times they remain open from 8.30 am. Night skiing is offered on Thursdays and Saturdays from 7 pm to 10 pm subject, of course, to weather conditions.
These are the 4 main ski areas in Sierra Nevada.
Loma de Dílar
This impressive area offers spectacular views over the valley to Granada and has an excellent variety of long and wide blue slopes that provide ample fun for skiing among its rolling hills and gentle ridges.
Veleta y Laguna de las Yeguas
Advanced skiers will find plenty of action at both Veleta Peak and the La Laguna Valley. Full of challenging red tracks and a couple of black tracks, which is not a forced itinerary if you go down the red ones.
Rio Monachil y el Parador
From Borreguiles, there is a long track that goes back to the town of Pradollano, the base of the ski resort. The 3.2 km “El Río” track follows the Monachil river in “highway style” with ample space for everyone. It is one of the main achievement goals for skiers in Sierra Nevada.
Mainly accessed through the Al-Andalus and Borreguiles Gondolas, Borreguiles central station opens onto an impressive bowl with wide, smooth and perfectly groomed slopes, ideal for first-time skiers.
Sierra Nevada in its full capacity, has more than 100 skiable kilometers adding all the tracks.
Our establishment is located at the foot of the slopes, a few meters from the Borreguiles Cable Car that will take you to Borreguiles and its upper slopes. Blanca Nieve is located next to the El Parador urban chairlift, which is the only chairlift that goes up to the urbanization and will bring you closer to your hotel or apartment.
