Sierra Nevada is not much than a winter resort, the most attractive to the Portuguese due to price and distance. The best time to visit it is around Easter, when the sun shines in the snow, and, less that one hour distant you have the marvels of "moor" Granada.

Try to get your ski pass as early as possible especially on Fridays and weekends as there can be a big queue at the ticket counters. If you are not going to ski there is a cheaper ticket which is a return.

Once you get the ski lift to the top, there are three restaurants. One is a fast food type of restaurant which is always packed and you usually end up eating standing up.

Just have a look around for the better prices because they change constantly. You normally will have to leave your ID with the shop when you rent out the equipment.
Favorite thing: From the rooftops of the Alhambra you have a beautiful spot from which to see the Sierra Nevada mountains. This is the direction we would be heading later in the day, first to Guadix and then later INTO and over the mountains toward Bubion...we had much to look forward to.
