Skiing near Barcelona. Where to ski?
Ski resorts and ski areas

Updated 24 Feb 2013

Ski resorts near Barcelona. The 2013/14 ski season news.  Lots of snow this season in the Pyrenees at ski stations near Barcelona in the Catalan and French Pyrenees.  TWEET THIS

Skiing in Barcelona has a lot to offer with many Spanish and Andorran resorts close to Barcelona that offer great skiing from the end of November and usually until Easter. Top ski resorts that are great for day skiing trips from Barcelona are Masella, La Molina and Grandvalira in Andorra - which are around 2 to 3 hours by car from Barcelona. La Molina can also be reached by train from Barcelona.

The Catalan Pyrenees ski resorts near Barcelona have big and modern ski areas which are good value for money. Skiing near Barcelona can start as early as the end of November and continue up to mid April. All ski stations near Barcelona have many snow cannons on up to 50% of the pistes, so the skiing is great for day-trips or weekend trips even when there is little natural snow. To get a quick overview of the snow situation in the Spanish ski resorts and Andorra - check out this page of webcams of Spanish Ski resorts.



 Book Barcelona skiing Day Trips

There are 14 ski resorts near Barcelona in the Catalan and French Pyrenees mountains. The nearest are ski-resorts of La MolinaLa Masella and Port del Comte which are just 2 hours by car or train from Barcelona. There are two big ski areas in Andorra, which are also close to Barcelona, called Grandvalira and Vallnord. The driving times for skiing from Barcelona to these resorts vary from just 2 hours to 3 hours. The biggest and best ski resort near Barcelona is Baqueira-Beret ski resort which is just over 4 hours by car from Barcelona.

Generally the skiing resorts close to Barcelona have great snow, uncrowded pistes and short lift
queues.  Prices are comparable to the Alps or a bit cheaper. The Spanish resorts have high altitudes and a low tree line, so there are many free ride trails and off piste runs to enjoy. Another benefit of skiing in the Pyrenees is that the pistes are much less crowded so no morning lift queues.

The after ski scene is generally much quieter than the Alps, which makes skiing in Spain perfect for beginners, families and serious skiers. If you want a lively apres-ski scene, then the Andorran resorts are probably your best bet with many UK skiers and a lively nightlife scene, particulary in Pas de la Casa, which is in the Grand Valira area. Be aware that smoking is oddly enough still allowed in most bars and restaurants in Andorra, so while the skiing is good the after-ski can be cloudy!

The ski season in Barcelona starts at end of November if there is enough snow. Generally many ski resorts near Barcelona are open before Christmas and many hope to be open in late November in preparation for the December "puente" public holidays in Spain on 6th and 8th December, so if you want some early skiing, then check our ski resort listings to see when the ski lifts are open and how many ski lifts are operational. All the big resorts have snow cannons throughout the resort, so you can still go skiing even if the fields on each side of the piste are sometimes bare.


La Molina

Closest ski resorts to Barcelona
