Sierra Nevada opens the season on Saturday November 27th

The Ministry of Tourism confirmed the opening date of the Pradollano ski resort in Sierra Nevada, Granada.

Sierra Nevada is another distinguishing element of tourism in Andalusia, including the huge and monumental cultural heritage, the offer of sun, beaches and golf facilities that exist in the province of Malaga.

The 2010-2011 season, which begins on November 27th, has new facilities and special promotions for all types of customers, with special emphasis on families and youth groups.

Sierra Nevada, with a total of 115 km skiing slopes is one of the preferred areas by skiers. Especially attractive for experts is the Aguila slope, with a length of 6,180 meters and a vertical drop of 1,170 meters, which is one of the most demanding descents in this ski resort.

This winter, the big news in Sierra Nevada is the opening of Sulayr Park, a complex dedicated to lovers of freestyle and snowboarding, with new modules, both natural and artificial, and Wi-Fi network. Among the new features this year are lower prices for rental of equipment, which have dropped from 22 Euros to 18 Euros.

The ski resort Pradollano is situated on 2.300 metres height in Sierra Nevada, only 36 km from Granada capital and 160 km from Malaga.
