So often overlooked by skiers who can't see beyond the end of the Alps, Baqueira Beret is a cracker of a ski resort, with 167km of pistes. The largest of Spain's ski resorts, it lies at the head of the beautiful Val d'Aran, near Vielha, in the Spanish Pyrenees. The village, tastefully purpose-built in wood and stone rather than concrete, is on the main road leading up to the high Bonaigua Pass.
Developed by Luis Arias, a Spanish National Ski Champion, Baqueira first opened in 1964 and is a favourite with the Spanish Royal family who regularly holiday here. Its location provides a unique Atlantic climate guaranteeing high quality snow, just the right amount of sunshine and, due to its southerly latitude, an hour's more daylight than the Alps.
Baqueira Beret is well laid out, has a modern lift infrastructure and a lively and varied après ski scene. The skiing is spread over three main areas, Baqueira, Beret and Argulls and there is a fourth area at La Bonaigua. Baqueira's claim of 'Alpine Scale' is further strengthened with lifts on the Cap de Baqueria. This huge area, the Argulls, has always had snow at Christmas, so the basin strengthens Baqueira's reputation for pre-Christmas to post-Easter skiing with the height of the new runs ensuring the snow will always be in peak condition.
