Full review

Just returned following a great long weekend, 17-19 January, what a hidden gem of a place! Arrived late on a Friday night, via cheap flight to Malaga and hire car to resort, hotel offered to organise our lift pass when we arrived, so we were on the slopes at 9.30am. Lots of ski hire shops, some open late at night. Resort had no new snow for a month, but snowmaking and grooming ensured a good first day with 50% pistes open. Had a 30cm snow dump on Sat, despite whiteout, skiing still good. Monday even better with lots of powder, but numerous slopes well bashed. No queues during whole weekend. Resort is lively at night, lots of good bars and tapas.
