Visiting the Catalan Pyrenees


Baqueira Beret is one of Spains most popular ski resorts. With 120km of downhill skiing, 78 pistes and 33 ski lifts. This is a great resort for mixed groups and the ultra modern lifts ensure that there are rarely lift queues.Getting to this region couldn't be easier. Barcelona is only 2 hours away from most resorts as is Perpignan so ski weekends and short break ski holidays are perfectly feasible here. Another airport worth mentioning is Toulouse, which is only two and a half hours away.

So if you are looking at skiing in resorts that are easy to get to, set in beautiful surroundings with  a good choice of slopes this ski region is for you. You may want to avoid weekends though as these resorts can get very busy with day trippers from Barcelona.
