Have great fun skiing close to Barcelona!
Barcelona is not only in the summer months one of the best holiday destinations. Also during the winter season it’s got a lot to offer! The sunny days with a clear and blue sky are just made for a fantastic fun day, skiing the pistes close to Barcelona! There are many Spanish and Andorran resorts near Barcelona that offer great skiing from the end of November until the end of March.
The top ski areas close to Barcelona, La Molina (50km pistes) and La Masella (61km pistes), are fantastic for day skiing trips from Barcelona. They are both in the Pre-Pyrenees mountain range and can be reached within two hours by car or bus and it is also possible to get to La Molina by train which also departs from Barcelona. “Renfe” transportation offers a package to La Molina, which includes a train and ski-pas (forfeit) and can be bought at all Renfe railway stations in Barcelona. If you go there during a weekday, you will enjoy the luxury of empty pistes and no lift lines. During the weekend it’s a bit more crowded but still nothing compared to the Alps.
A larger ski area is the resort Grandvalira in Andorra in the Pyrenees, which is a 3 hours bus ride from Barcelona. With more than 210 km of run, it is the largest skiing area close to Barcelona. This resort usually offers uncrowded pistes and short lift queues. Moreover, the Eastern Pyrenees have 300 days of sunshine, so the weather is marvellous for skiing. Since the resort has high altitude, there are also several free ride trails and off-piste runs to enjoy.
The mentioned examples are just three resorts out of 14 skiing areas close to Barcelona.
The after-ski scene is much quieter than in Austria or Switzerland, but nevertheless, you will find some night life especially in Grandvalira, the largest resort. The most lively nightlife you will probably find in Pas de la Casa in Andorra.
Don’t miss out on this fantastic run and book your trip to the Pyrenees and enjoy great skiing with a clear, blue sky!
