Full review

Founded in 1964, Baqueira has grown year on year to become Spain's largest single resort. If you're thinking about Europe consider its latitude gives an hour more daylight for skiing than in the Alps, and it's warmer too. There's well laid out, modern lift infrastructure and a lively and varied après ski scene.

The resort has expanded rapidly since 2000 with numerous new high speed, high capacity lifts, dozens of new runs and new mountain faces added.

Famous fans of the resort include Luis Arias (Spanish National Ski Champion), King Juan Carlos and other members of the Spanish Royal family
