Masella has a lot going for it. It's a big, BIG mountain(over 3000 vertical feet) and offers easily accessible snow fields and off-piste terrain. Add to that it's an easy commute from Barcelona, and you have some world class skiing a mere two hours from the city and beach. However, it lacks snow cover. I first skied the mountain in Spring of 2010, when the region had gotten buried. It was phenomenal and breathtaking. By contrast, this year finds white pistes snaking through dirt and foliage to a spring-like base area. That said, the on-piste skiing was surprisingly good. Masella has mastered the art of snowmaking and I was dumbfounded by how good the surface was in the face of lean snowfall. As a day trip, Masella is a great option - particularly as it can be combined with the Gondola connected La Molina. In good snowfall, its even a good destination resort. Thus, what Masella can be depends heavily on the weather. One note: there are better lodging options in La Molina, so for overnights, stay in that village and use the gondola to access both mountains.
