Smart Travel: Skiing in Baquiera

Ready for some fresh air?

 Travel Smart this winter: fly to Toulouse then head into Catalunya to Baquiera-Beret, Spain’s premier and largest ski resort. Thanks to its extraordinary emphasis on the quality of its skiing services, it could be – according to the Telegraph – “the world’s finest ski resort”. Our CEO Stig is headed there himself in February.

The Baqueira-Beret Ski Resort is set high up in the Val d’Aran, a Pyrenean valley so remote that it once had its own language and culture, with the highest lifts reaching over 2600m. Great for families, the purposefully-built Baquiera-Beret is a remarkably accessible resort: from complete beginners to off-piste experts and heli-skiers, there are 157km of runs for all standards.

And with one of the best food scenes of any ski resort in the world, enjoying delicious food and drink after a day on the slopes is almost as fun as the skiing itself.

The resort is divided into 3 areas, each with their own restaurants, bars, cafeterias, nurseries and ski schools:

  • Baquiera offers carefully-maintained pistes, modern installations and the most black pistes.
  • Beret is great for families and beginners, with easy access to the slopes and a snowpark.
  • Bonaiga is the doorway to a number of off-piste runs.
