Why ski in Baqueira?
We absolutely love the resort of Baqueira Beret! We arrange activities in the evenings such as snowshoeing, ice rink and the popular “pincho pote” tapas tour where we visit the old town of Vielha on a Tuesday evening.
When it comes to the slopes, this resort in the Pyrenees has it all. Boasting 150 kilometres of pistes, including three beginners areas, plenty of wide, cruising blue and red runs for the more intermediate skiers and some fantastic off-piste opportunities for the advanced and adventurous skiers out there. Don’t just take our word for it; check out the impressive piste map.
The majority of lifts are chairs and the queues are the shortest you will find on any ski resort.
The village has a unique charm reflecting its location in the Val d’Aran, brilliant, authentic cuisine in the form of tapas bars and restaurants and for those who enjoy their après ski, some fun and lively bars.
There are high quality hotels and shops. Some of the bars and shops are hidden behind the main complex so it’s worth exploring. But don’t forget the Spanish siestas! Everywhere is closed between 1 and 5pm but they re-open in the evenings. If you are driving up to the resort from further down the valley, the main car park has a small diesel train which takes clients up from the car park to the lifts.
Famously the ski resort of choice for the King of Spain, it’s the perfect place to bring the whole family.
Do you know the Baqueira spirit?
It is the passion, is to notice how the pulse accelerates. It is deep breathing. It is relaxing, it is activated. Is the nature. It is the air, the height, the snow. It is to be on your mountain. It is to live,
