The Sierra Nevada Ski Resort is in province of Granada in southeastern Spain. By far the main attraction for visitors to the resort is the 100 km (60 mi) of alpine skiing runs. With abundant snow, it is possible to ski almost anywhere on the mountain, as the whole resort is above the tree line. Check out the Run detail´s on the Sierra Nevada Ski Runs
One ski area is on the northwestern slopes of Veleta, the third highest peak in peninsular Spain and the most southerly ski resort of Europe. The weather is such a delight that skiing and swimming on the same day, at this beautiful southern resort, is a realistic possibility. It is not uncommon for skiers to head down the slopes in short sleeve t-shirts and catch a nice tan whilst doing it! But skiing is not the only thing you can do in the Sierra Nevada. Some of the activities are designed for the snow and some are not, and some of them are especially suitable for children and families.
