The ski area is divided into six areas:
- Borreguiles: This is the area where green and blue slopes predominate, making it the ideal place for those starting out in snow sports.
- Veleta: This area features red slopes with good inclines.
- Loma Dílar: This area is divided into two zones, the first with long and wide blue slopes and the Montebajo area with black slopes.
- Cauchiles / Parador: It offers a wide variety of blue and red slopes, with the Águila slope standing out for its length, which runs the entire length of the station from top to bottom.
Skiing in Sierra Nevada is a fantastic activity to do with children. In the Borreguiles area, you can find a themed zone designed for families with kids, as well as adventure activities suitable for the little ones, such as snowmobiles and inflatable sleds. Of course, Sierra Nevada also offers various courses tailored to the needs and ages of each child.
Another highlight of skiing in Sierra Nevada is the Après-ski, an area full of sunny terraces where you can enjoy a meal and drinks that will delight all sports enthusiasts. For those who enjoy nightlife, there is a vibrant nightlife scene with bars, nightclubs, and pubs, all within a thirty-minute drive from the center of Granada city.
If you’re interested in more activities besides skiing in Sierra Nevada, you’re in the perfect place. You also have the opportunity to go sledding or ride inflatable donuts. The area also has a roller coaster that will have you soaring above the white snow, and, of course, the forests surrounding the ski resort allow for snowshoeing routes. And if that’s not enough, you can also enjoy the ice skating rink located in Pedrollano, the urbanization of Sierra Nevada.
