[R1642R, Formigal] has launched a buy-one-get-one-free on adult lift passes for the rest of the winter season.

This offer is valid for UK skiers booking with Crystal, Neilson, Thomson, Igluski.com, Ifyouski.com, Ski World, Ski Tracer, Zenith Holidays, and J2Ski.com.

Formigal is the leading resort in Spain. It was purpose built in the 1950s and opened its first lift in 1964. The resort is located in the centre of the Pyrenean Aragonese region, to the north of the province of Huesca and in the Valley of Tena, close to the French border.

The resort is largely made up of lodges five or six storeys high, and generally designed with a local stone facade and slanting roofs, to give a vaguely chalet-like appearance. It is also relatively compact so that most buildings are within an easy walk of services, although the lifts themselves are on the edge of the resort. They are still within walking distance (the furthest is 800m from the village) but there is a ski bus.

In recent seasons the resort has been working hard to transform itself in to a state of the art ski destination.  There was a vast expansion and upgrading of the area for the 2004-05 season when seven new lifts were installed including five high capacity chairlifts - one of them the first eight-seater in Spain and two magic carpet lifts.
