Here the 1997 world championships alpine skiing were held. On an altitude of about 2100 meters one can find a sufficient quantity of snow from the beginning of December right trough the end of march/beginning of may.

From the top of the ski lift on the Veleta mountain (3398 m)one can see the Mediterranean Sea and on a clear day one can even spot the distant shores of North-Africa. But that Is not why most winter vacation tourists come here.

They come for the total length of the slopes which is 48 km, and the 18 ski lifts that can bring hem to any “blue”, “red” or “black” piste.Langlaufen over the Sierra Nevada mountains is possible in most winters.Solynieve is located above the tree line and surrounding countryside is open and panoramic with occasional small lagoons.

There is one big difference between the winter vacation place Solynieve and most other ski resorts: it lies on a very short distance from other touristic attractions all of which are easily accessible and are not “spoiled” by winter conditions. Granada is very close and a visit to the Alhambra and the Generalife Gardens makes a nice alternative.

The proximity of the Mediterranean Sea makes it possible to go skiing, sailing and swimming all in the same day! And another important point: it is only about two hours driving away from Málaga Airport: a beautiful drive through exquisite mountainous landscape and without any of the traffic jams that can ruin a short ski break in the other European ski resorts…
