Finding the First Snows that brings a start to Spain’s Ski Season
Ski stations across Spain ‘officially’ opening normally around the end of November and up to 30,000 tourists were expected to hit the slopes between the begining and the end of the snow season.
Although the French alps and Andorra continue to be the European skiing community’s mecca, Spain’s underrated slopes are perfect for everyone from total beginners to experts and considerably cheaper in most cases.
Whist Spain is more commonly associated with sun-drenched beaches to Northern European travellers, the Pyrenees, the Sierra Nevada in the province of Granada – just a short drive from its stunning coastline – and the mountains of the province of Teruel in southern Aragon are frequently packed out with Spanish residents seeking some winter sporting fun.

Foreign skiers travelling to Spain exclusively for its snowy pistes continue to be in a minority, but the cost of a skiing holiday in the country – or a weekend or even a day trip – is far lower than elsewhere in Europe and, in the case of Granada and Teruel in particular, easy to reach by car in anything from half an hour to three hours for tourists staying in beach areas.

Cost Savings in Spain
Some of the cheapest and least-known slopes outside of Spain are the Aramon stations in the land-locked region of Aragon, which sits to the east of the centre of the country, running from the Pyrenees – where the ski resorts in the northernmost province of Huesca, Panticosa, Cerler and formigal are found – down to the western borders of Valencia where, in its southern province of Teruel, the neighbouring resorts of Javalambre and Valdelinares can be reached in just over two hours from the city of Valencia or the coast.
The Sierra Nevada has invested 3.1 million euros in its slopes and rewards those who book a 10-day pass in advance with a 12.50-euro discount.
Later in the season, skiing fans can combine warm, spring-like climates with snowy sports – many of the resorts are open until mid-March or even April, and day visitors can spend a morning skiing and a late afternoon relaxing in a pavement cafe in just a T-shirt. skiing spain
