One of the skiing world's most closely guarded secret sits in the second highest European mountain range in Europe, has one of the longest ski seasons from late November to early May and guarantees you 80% sunny days - confirming Sierra Nevada to also be Europe's sunniest resort.
Most recently, Sierra Nevada organised the 2017 FIS Freestyle and Snowboard World Championships, and the resort has in the past hosted the World Championships, the World Universities and World Schools Championships.
321ski groups can be sure of excellent snow conditions - not only is the skiing guaranteed at 2500m which is higher than most other European ski resorts, but Sierra Nevada boasts modern snowmaking equipment that rivals the American premium resorts.
The resort opens at the end of November and typically closes post the first week of May, offering our 321ski school groups peace of mind for early and late skiing.
Teaching and learning in the resort is very good. Sierra Nevada offers beginners the dedicated ski area of Borreguiles which has its own three chairlifts and four magic carpets, all of which our groups use to gather confidence wiht skills and drills prior to embarking onto the higher slopes above.
More advanced skiers can ski up to 3400m and uniquely, look across to the Mediterranean from some of the high pistes in the Laguna de Las Yeguas ski area of Sierra Nevada.
321ski school groups stay in one of several of our hotels, some of which offer doorstep skiing. The hotels offer a genuine warm welcome with the benefit of Spanish food, and our 321ski reps will help organise a range of evening activities - both in-house and locally.
Our 321ski groups often return again to this unpretentious resort that rivals some of the larger prolific European ski areas.
