Full review

I have gone skiing twice at Baqueira Beret (in 1999 and 2000 so my experience is a bit dated), and I had good conditions and great skiing both times. Like most European resorts, the snow is not as deep and powder conditions are not as frequent as in the West of North America. However, there is pretty reliable cover from mid-station upwards from late December through the end of March. It is well worth the five plus hour drive from Madrid to get your occasional skiing-fix. It is even better from San Sebastian or the like. If you are considering traveling to Spain to ski, the real draw is probably the culture etc. There are a lot of top quality restaurants and bars in the Val d' Aran so you won't be disappointed.
