One of Spain’s four largest ski areas, Cerler’s ski area size comes as a surprise to many, with a 3,700 foot vertical and 45 miles of runs for all standards, served by 18 lifts. There are great views of the Aneto glacier. The area is known as “the lost valley” and that translates to empty slopes and no lift lines outside peak periods.
The varied terrain has something for everyone, including tree skiing, some excellent back country routes, high service standards from the staff (not always a given in Europe). The snow tends to come down from the Northeast, but beware if gales drive it in, or follow on afterwards as the slopes can be windswept. On the other hand, this is the highest resort in the region , so snow conditions are often the best to be found.
There’s good apres at the Ciria and Parrilla restaurants which continues in the evenings down at Benasque where the Agente Naranja is a popular disco.
