There are few places in the world where you can ski in the morning then head to the coast for a swim in the afternoon, but the proximity of Sierra Nevada to the Med allows this. Don't be fooled into thinking that the skiing will be second rate either. 20 lifts serve 100 km of piste at the Sierra Nevada but it can get busy at the weekends with bottlenecks at the lifts. The pistes lend themselves to the intermediate but there is ample off-piste skiing for the advanced riders. Off the pistes, there are some good restaurants and lively bars. If you get bored or the snow is not as good in the Sierra Nevada, just head for a beach! A halfpipe was added to the snowpark Salayr in 2011 (165m long and 6m high). It is the biggest in Spain. The snow junior world championship was celebrated in this park.

Visitor Reviews of Sierra Nevada

Carolina Aparicio from Spain writes:

Sierra Nevada como estación es, bajo mi punto de vista una maravilla. Ofrece cantidad de actividades al cliente y sus condiciones climatologicas son envidiables. Sol y mucha nieve. Fui el invierno pasado con mi familia y la verdad es que todo el personal de la estación nos trató de forma acogedora.

Como escuela, recomiendo La Escuela Internacional de Esquí, principalmente por el trato que tiene con los niños pequeños. Mis hijos de 3 y 5 años salieron encantados, y nosotros, los padres también.
Con respecto a la comida, el restaurante la Cuña, situado al lado del telecabina y a pie de pistas, nos lo recomendó un amigo y la verdad que no se equivocó. Trato exquisito y comida muy buena calidad-precio.

Sin duda volveremos a repetir este año. Para los apasionados del esquí, esto es algo que no deja de engancharnos.
