1. Skiing in the Catalan Pyrenees
In late fall, and until well into spring, the Catalan Pyrenees boast significant levels of snow, which means that the ski stations all along the mountain range―including La Molina, the southernmost, and those of neighboring Andorra―are operative for much of the year, above all those in Cerdanya, Vall de Boí, Vall de Aran (where you'll find the renowned Baqueira-Beret station) and Vall de Núria. The region of Pallars Sobirà has also established itself as one of the leading destinations of winter sports in Catalonia, with several stations, such as Port Ainé, where you can experience the snow to the fullest.
The Pyrenees make up an area that abounds in well-preserved buildings from the period between the 9th and 12th centuries, churches and monasteries with the solemnity of old stone. So it’s very easy to organize your days of leisure, culture and sport using the mornings to ski and the afternoons to visit villages and areas like Vall de Boí, Viella or La Seu d’Urgell.
