Sierra Essence offers a personalised selection of accommodation options.  Since we live here and have developed excellent relationships with the accommodation agencies and hoteliers we can hand-pick the accommodation according to the specific requirements of our clients. 

Accommodation options in Sierra Nevada are essentially split between Self-Catering Apartments or Hotels / Hostels.

Lift passes are required for all skiers or boarders whether you are a novice or an expert. Sierra Nevada has one type of pass that covers all lifts over the ski terrain, whilst also providing options for non-skiers to use the gondola up to Borreguiles or the Parador chairlift running up through the ski village.

Sierra Essence offers the facility to pre-book your passes in advance and save you from annoying queues that can build up especially during peak season periods.

After a successful trial run of last summer's downhill mountain biking season offering routes across areas of the ski terrain, this season the stops have been pulled out and with an extended season, new routes and trails catering for complete novices through to the more hardy and advanced biker plus the well-established cross country routes of "Fuente Alta".

As Europe's second most mountainous country (after Switzerland), Spain rises to an average altitude of 650m above sea level with over 25% of the country actually over 1000m above sea level. Little wonder then that Spain is home to around 35 ski resorts!
