Apart from downhill skiing you can also enjoy marvellous cross-country skiing. If you feel like going down the mountain and have a lot of space to move around, avoid the major crowds and have a really nice ski holiday, you should continue to read about Baqueira Beret.
Skiing in Spanish styleBaqueira Beret is a large ski resort with wide and long slopes and you never need to worry about it being over-crowded around you. This is a true paradise for intermediate skiers who feel comfortable skiing blue and red pistes. There are 78 well-kept ski slopes, mainly blue and red. There are also six green slopes. If you are a very advanced skier who prefer black pistes and going off-pistee, there are ski resorts that are better suited. There are some black slopes but rather few. Several of the ski slopes run through the forest and you are well-protected from wind and snow storms. You do get a wonderful feeling of being outdoors and in the nature.
When you have finished skiing, try out the Spanish delicacies, such as wine and tapas. There is a good selection of restaurants in town as well as bars and discotheques.
If you feel like relaxing, resting or just hanging out in town, Baqueira Beret has a good offering of post-skiing activities. There is even a cinema and a museum. You can also discover the beautiful surroundings.
