Sierra Nevada literally means “Snowy Mountain Range” and it includes some of the highest peaks in Europe, not to mention the highest concentration of peaks over 3,000m in the country – our ski lifts go to 3300m and offer 1200m of vertical drop.
Founded in 1964 the resort has a great snow resort – being one of Europe’s highest. With a ski season that runs from mid-November through to Early May.
As part of its ski heritage, the resort is still the only resort in Europe to have held World Cup Downhill skiing and Freestyle ski / Snowboarding.
Officially the sunniest resort in Europe you can expect to see down to the city Granada and the Mediterranean Sea beyond…sometimes even as far as the Moroccan coast.
