Skiing in Spain at Formigal Catalonia in the Pyrenees
Skiing Formigal Ski resort itself occupies four different high mountain valleys, defining three sectors: Tres Hombres (Crestas), Izas, Anayet and El Portalet.
The four valleys are linked by spanking new high-speed chairlifts, supplemented by drags to the higher reaches. Runs are, undeniably, short by Alpine standards — the vertical drop is a meagre 750 metres.
Most of the skiing is on intermediate-friendly reds and blacks. We discovered a few startlingly steep runs at the end of El Portalet, the furthest-flung valley.
