  • Summer Enquiries for Winter 2017-18

    The vast majority of self-catering apartments don´t release their rates or accept bookings until November for the upcoming season. Many of the hotels do not release rates until the Autumn either. As such, there are just a few options we can give you now such as the two 4 star Melia hotels and the 3 star GHM Monachil. As we are "out of season" our response rate will be much slower as a result of this. From mid-June onwards, we intend to respond to any enquiries on a weekly basis. Most accommodation options nowadays offer a "flexible" tariff which allows future modifications and/or cancelations. We can generally compete very well with alternative options found elsewhere and so would urge you to consider this so that when more options open themselves up to us you may well be able to take advantage of a better deal later in the autumn.

Après-Ski

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

After your ski day, the Pradollano Plaza area hosts a good selection of typical Spanish Tapas bars that get extremely lively between 5 and 8pm, after which people drift off to have dinner/siesta before heading out later on to the night bars.

Being a very Spanish environment, you don´t go out until 11pm at the very earliest!

Lift Pass Office

In "Plaza de Andalucia", the central square of the Sierra Nevada ski resort, with the sign "TAQUILLAS".

You must buy your lift pass before using any lifts. Open 08.00 - 16.30 every day. On Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays from 17.00 - 20.30 you can buy lift pass(es) for the next day.

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