The 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.
