BAQUEIRA BERET (SPAIN)
A station that occurs between two valleys: Val d'Aran located on the Atlantic slope of the Pyrenees and the Valls d'Àneu, in the region of Pallars Sobirà with Mediterranean orientation. The advantage is that both offer an endless number of outdoor activities even from the summer season, but since what we are most interested in now is the snow, these are the reasons that make it one of the most visited and ideal stations in all of Europe. .
This is the destination par excellence for Kings and the Royal Family to enjoy their Christmas holidays. Don Juan Carlos, Doña Sofía and their three children used to spend weekends on the slopes of Baqueira, letting themselves be photographed with all their equipment, clothing and snowboard goggles by the press.
The best way to get to know the Baqueira resort is taking advantage of the tours called “safaris”. They are routes with the aim of showing skiers the different difficulties of each track. They are marked and signposted, which can be guided independently or with your group of friends.
In addition to offering all these attractions, Baqueira also has accommodation options. From five-star hotels to slightly more affordable alternatives located in nearby towns with good atmospheres and restaurants that bring life to the weekends of the ski season .
Zermatt is undoubtedly the place where you should wear your new snowboard goggles . Located on Monte Cervino, it is one of the most acclaimed tracks on the European continent with more than 360 km available to fans.
