Sierra Nevada Slopes
Sierra Nevada has a skiing terrain of 110 km distributed among 21 ski lifts, 131 slopes for all the levels and with the highest vertical rise in Spain, with 1200 m. Within the total of slopes, 19 are green slopes (easy), 45 are blue slopes (intermediate), 53 are red slopes (difficult), 7 are black slopes (expert) and 7 are Snowpark slopes to practice freestyle.
Due to the high altitude at this resort, the ski slopes are above the tree line and take the shape of wide ski fields instead of narrow slopes, something that favors the most enthusiastic skiers in particular giving a feeling of confidence in general.
Freeride skiing in Sierra Nevada has made a big name for itself. The open terrain allows to finding accessible areas off-piste with steep lines and very little risk of avalanche. It’s also something that beginner freeride skiers love because there’s no need to hike to find good sections to learn.
The minimum ski height is in Pradollano at 2100 meters, from where the main Ski lifts of the station depart. The maximum ski height is given by the Veleta peak, the fourth highest summit in Spain, located at 3400 meters above sea level.
Sierra Nevada ski station opens its doors daily from Monday to Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., also adding a different and fun option with night skiing on Thursdays and Saturdays from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
These are the 4 main ski areas you can easily recognise in the Sierra Nevada Trail Map.
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 good fun for skiing among its rolling hills and gentle ridges.
Veleta and Laguna de las Yeguas
Advanced skiers will find plenty of action at both Veleta Peak and the La Laguna Valley. The most challenging red trails and some black trails predominate in this area. The area of La Laguna is the preferred one for practicing Freeride, being extremely wide and with endless off-piste options.
Rio Monachil and el Parador
The Rio piste allows skiing 3.2 km below the Telecabinas from the Borreguiles area to the Pradollano urbanization, the base of the ski resort. It follows the Monachil river in a “highway style” with enough space for everyone. It is one of the main 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.
Blanca Nieve’s store is located a few meters from the access to the Borreguiles Gondola and at the base of El Rio trail, which means a privileged location since you can pick up your equipment at the beginning of the day before your first ascent to the mountain and ski down the El Rio trail to our store at the end of the day.
