Sierra Nevada is a good resort with both pros and cons. Pros: it can guarantee snow (due to mix of altitude and 200+ canons), it has some nice runs (mostly easy red and blue) with stunning scenery and the nightlife is fairly lively (all good spirited). Oh yes it is comparatively 'low cost' -across the board! Cons: compared with most Alpine resorts the number and variety of runs is limited, it can suffer from closures due to high winds (highest lifts are 3300m+), and restaurants are adequate. For those outside of Spain, it may not be a permanent entry on your annual destination list, but definately worth a visit.
