The Sunny Slopes of the Sierra Nevada
Andalusia is, of course, famous for its vast sun-swept beaches and fiery cultural traditions. At Cortijo El Carligto – Private Andalucían Hideaway, we strive to expand horizons and share these authentic cultural enrichments with travelers seeking immersive experiences and the true flavours of Andalusia. But sometimes, everybody just wants to have a little fun and a bit of a thrill. Here we present an opportunity to discover one of Andalusia’s less well known delights: the ski resort in the Sierra Nevada of Granada. Though the slopes appear absolutely alpine, this is still Andalusia and the land of sunshine; this, the southernmost and sunniest ski resort in Europe enjoys over 80% days of sunshine during the season.
Make the Most of a World Class Ski Resort
Many are surprised to learn that the Sierra Nevada is the second highest mountain range in Western Europe after the Alps. The impressive Mulhacen mountain peaks at an imposing maximum height of 3,483 metres (11,430 feet). In 1986 it was declared to be a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and in 1999 it became a National Park due to its biodiversity. The resort hosted the 1996 Alpine World Ski Championships and continues to host top-level races at the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup. The Sierra Nevada has 104 km (65 miles) of ski slopes, comprised of 119 pistes and the longest snow board lines in Europe full of freestyle obstacles, jumps and half pipes. All things considered, the Sierra Nevada presents a unique ski resort in the heart of the Mediterranean.
Experience the absolute best of skiing with this fully escorted day excursion, ideal for any ski lover at one of the most scenic resorts. Its position near the Mediterranean coast also makes it one of the only places anywhere that you can actually hit the beach for some rays after hitting the snowy slopes!
Take advantage of El Carligto’s privileged situation, it is the perfect private après-ski retreat.
