Sierra Nevada Things to Do

  • Best In Spring

    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. Unless your purpose is only ski, the best is to stay in Granada and make the way forth...

  • Visit La Alambra

    La Alambra is just about a 30 minute drive from Sierra Nevada. It is worth taking a day out from the skiing and visiting La Alambra. It is well worth it! Have a look in Granada pages.

  • Build a snowman!

    Yes built a snowman ! This is a snowman and dog I built with a couple of my friends. The dog was extremely difficult to built!

  • Ski Passes

    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 have finished with the ski passes return them to the Ticket office where you will be given 3 euros for returning them.

Sierra Nevada Restaurants

  • Eat at the top

    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. Borreguiles has a better variety, and at least you can sit down to have your meal. It is slightly more expensive than the other two restaurants.

  • On the top of the Sierra

    Located when coming out of the Telecabinas (the cable car)in the building of the same name. Self-service and sandwiches. We loved to go there it was warm and the ambience was great, we could see the ski people coming down.

    Skiing outside the tracks is very dangerous, we all know that! But yet many people still do it! Do yourself and others a favour and keep to the tracks and take notice of the various warning signs.

    kis, boots and clothing can be hired at the many shops available. I managed to get boots and skis for 45 euros for three days (15 euros a day) (March 2007), which is not bad at all. 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.
