Inner Tubing

innertubing 200x150Located at the top of the "Magic Carpet" conveyer belt in Borreguiles in the Sierra Nevada ski resort. This consists of descending a prepared slope, away from the main runs, sat in the middle of a huge inflated inner tube. Pre-booking is not necessary.


ski lockers sierra nevada spainLocated in the passageway entrance to the "Borreguiles" cabin lift (below the control tower), on the slopes in Borreguiles in the Sierra Nevada ski resort.

There are both code controlled lockers that can be hired for 15.00€ per day as well as smaller day lockers for storing a backpack using a refundable coin method.

The coded lockers are large enough to store up to four sets of skis and boots and there is also a place to leave day gear (coats, backpacks etc.) to the left of the main Borreguiles restaurant building.

skiwearTiendas Goreski is the main place in Sierra Nevada that hires out ski clothing.

They are located in the Melia Sol y Nieve shopping gallery in the Plaza de Pradollano.

It is recommended you "beg, borrow or steal" clothing before coming out for reasons of expense and personal comfort.

riosportlogIntersport Rio Sport has two shops in the Sierra Nevada ski resort.

Their main rental store is located in the Plaza de Andalucía close to the Al-Andalus Gondola entrance and their other shop is located in the Plaza de Pradollano near to the Parador chairlift.

apres ski sierra nevada spainThe Sierra Nevada ski resort is well known for it's lively night scene, especially during the high and mid-season periods.

Earlier on in the day, at the end of your ski day the Pradollano square area hosts a good selection of typical Spanish Tapas bars that get extremely lively between 5-8pm after which they empty out as people drift off to get their dinner/siesta before heading out later on to the night bars.

Lift passes are required for all skiers or boarders whether you are a novice or otherwise. 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.

lift pass office Located in the central square of the Sierra Nevada ski resort, "Plaza de Andalucia" and well indicated with the word "TAQUILLAS".

You must pass by here to buy your lift pass before going up any lifts. They between 08.00 - 16.30 each each day.

On Friday's, Saturday's and Sunday's it is posible to buy your lift pass(es) for the next day between 17.00-20.30.

Pre-booking your pass can save you time, hassle and queueing which could ultimately delay you significantly in getting onto the slopes!

Parking Sierra Nevada SpainThere are three main parking areas in the Sierra Nevada ski resort:

  • Plaza de Andalucia
  • KM 31
  • Peñones

To avoid paying anything, try driving down through the village towards the mid-zone where the intermediate stop of the Parador chairlift is. Street parking is free in most areas around here.
