Having the King of Spain himself as a guest, Baqueira Beret is now the largest Spanish ski area and one of the most famous ski resorts in the Pyrenees. Its main assets? An excellent level of sunshine and snow throughout the season, plenty of ski lifts, slopes suitable for all, modern facilities, charming villages and the best festive atmosphere sought-after by guests for apres-ski in Spanish style.
Baqueira Beret is a friendly ski resort that welcomes guests in Spain in the Val d'Aran and Valls d'Àneu. It offers perfectly snow-covered and sunny slopes, surrounded by mountain lakes and peaks reaching up to 3000 metres in altitude. Its view of the Aneto massif provides an absolutely idyllic setting for skiing, much sought after by both Spanish and French skiers, who are seduced by the strong character of this Pyrenean ski area.
Three major ski resorts share this area:
Baqueira, the busiest one in terms of guests
Beret, the calmest one and most accessible to beginners
Bonaigua, the wildest and most authentic one
Apart of ski lessons, first-time skiers will find many spacious, gentle slopes in the beginners' area near the new Pla de Beret chairlift, as well as in Bonaigua, where the easy, charming Argulls blue runs await them.
The area is also suitable for experienced skiers, who will find superb descents of varying difficulty in the Baqueira and Bonaigua sectors. Great skiing awaits them in the first, at the Manaud chairlift, the emblematic Luis Arias black run and the very demanding La Passarells black run; while the technical difficulties are to be found on the Peulla runs in the second.
The icing on the cake is a fourth sector, Baciver, with only six red runs, which allows you to have fun up to an altitude of 2,610 metres. Initially intended for ski touring, the winding slopes of Baciver require a good level of practice. The proximity to France makes this resort even more accessible.
