Ski Or Snowboard In Southern Spain Now: Sierra Nevada Opens A Week Early On Saturday November 24, 2018

The Spanish ski resort of Sierra Nevada is opening on Saturday November 24, 2018 – one week before the scheduled opening date and with the largest amount of lifts and terrain in its history available for the inaugural weekend.

A total of 9 lifts and 43 kilometres of slopes are available, providing a vertical drop of 1,100 metres with accumulated snow between 20cm and 150cm depending on the altitude. When the resort is fully open there will be 110 kilometres of slopes available across 130 runs, offering one of the longest vertical drops in Europe.

Tour operator Ski Weekends specialises in packages to the resort, located in the southern Spanish region of Andalucía and within 40 minutes’ drive from the city of Granada – with views stretching to the Mediterranean Sea and beyond to North Africa on a clear day. Packages are available starting on December 1, 2018 from £522 per person for a 3 night stay including flights and airport transfers.

Dan Fox, Managing Director of Ski Weekends, said:

Sierra Nevada has a fantastic snow record and often opens in early December despite its proximity to the southern tip of Europe. But with conditions as good as this so early on, it presents an opportunity to grab an early ski trip and enjoy the slopes as well as the Spanish hospitality and food the region is so well known for. The resort is gaining in reputation with British skiers as they discover the excellent quality accommodation and facilities that provide good value for money. We’re delighted that the snow has come so early this year and it’s certainly a sign of good things to come.

A 3 night break in Sierra Nevada with Ski Weekends costs from £522 per person, staying in the 3* ski-in-ski-out Hotel Monachil on a half-board basis, including flights and airport transfers. A 7 night stay costs from £810 per person.
