Masella is a few minutes drive from the cute Catalan Cerdanya small town of Alp, with its restaurants, hotels and late bars. And another 10 minutes from beautiful Puigcerda/Bourg-Madame straddling the French and Spanish borders. Combined with la Molina – you can ski between the resorts, it gives about 140km of trails. The skiing is excellent, pretty similar to the US South West, but with open runs at the top of the mountain, and the bottom half being lovely tree-lined trails. I think it beats Andorra as skiing destination, the runs are much longer, and many are tree-lined. Service is really friendly. There is loads of skiing for everybody up to advanced – experts may find it more limited. Prices are very good. I was told it can be busy at the weekend, as it can be reached by Barcelona’s suburban rail network in a couple of hours, but not as busy as La Molina. However quiet empty pistes mid-week as long as it is not a Spanish school holiday period.
