Vallter is a curious little spot. It's the most easterly of Pyrenean resorts and glimpses of the Mediterranean can be had from the summit. It's also one of the highest resorts in the range, although only 60 miles from Barcelona. The station's proximity to the ocean can sometimes bring massive snow dumps, resulting in a resort transformed. On the other hand, it's position on the south side of the Pyrenees can mean the traditional precipitation that comes across France simply does not reach Vallter, and the mountain goes dry. However, when there is snow, it's a revelation. It's a quick, toll free drive from Barcelona and with only a little effort you can be skiing off-piste, alone and in bliss. It's also a family friendly spot and the ski instructors seem to be uber-capable. And, the valley itself, running from Llanars to Setcases is among the most bucolic and beautiful alpine areas in Catalonia, free of over-development, rife with horse farms, and quaint town centres. Vallter is continuously overlooked in favor of Masella, to the west, but when there is snow, this mountain is charming and worth checking out.
