ABOUT BAQUEIRA

THE RESORT

Situated in the north part of the Pyrenees, Baqueira Beret itʼs a hidden treasure that is widely regarded as the best ski resort in Spain and across the Pyrenees. While Andorra and some French resorts might have a higher lift or a larger lift/linked ski area, Baqueira offers the best range of terrain, long pistes, snow record, resort convenience, free ride potential, scenery, ambience and quality of hotels and restaurants.

It is the most extensive Spanish resort being over 167km in length and 2610m in height. It is divided in four sectors: Beret, Baqueira (in the middle), Baciver and Bonaigua. And it is venue for international and national contests.

The resort is largely facing northwest so it directly puts it in the path of the snow-laden winter storms coming in from the Atlantic. Almost all the slopes are over 1800m and are reinforced by snow canons, so the main pisted area is pretty much snowsure from Christmas through to Easter.

Baqueira Beret represents great value for money with large ski areas, great skiing and friendly hospitality. You will find a modern ski resort with good accessibility from Toulouse and Barcelona, parking next to the slopes, in slope restaurants and a great range of après-ski activities.

Located in the centre of the Arán Valley, you can enjoy its traditional villages with well preserved Romanesque churches dating back from the Middle Ages, its history and superb gastronomy.

Children in Baqueira Beret

One of the attractions of skiing is that you can enjoy it with the whole family. Parents can take a skiing course or ski on their own in the knowledge that their children are also having fun.

In Baqueira Beret resort there are 3 ski nurserys and there is an additional one at Baqueira 1500. The latter is
located at Borda Lobato, next to the public parking, and is designed for children from 3 months to 2 1/2 years old.

They all have an outside garden and specialised staff. For those over 2 1/2 years old there are 1 in each sector of the resort: Beret, Baqueira and Bonaigua.

Baqueira 1800 nursery is located opposite the Bosque chairlift. It has a magic carpet and a ski run in the outdoor area so that children can be introduced to skiing through play. The playground provides skis and boots.
Full day 9.30 am - 4.30 pm
Half day morning 9.30 am - 12.45 pm
Half day afternoon 1.15 am - 4.30 pm

There are also special weekly classes for them which combine nursery + ski lessons + lunch. They are designed for children aged four to five years old.

In front of the Bosque chairlift there is a kids zone with two magic carpets and a ski carousel. There is also a short lift for beginners.

In terms of areas, Beret sector has more gentle slopes and spacious runs, so we could say it is best for beginners, families and children. It also has a Funpark area for the enjoyment of all the family, were you will discover a blue ski run of 1,750 m in length with plenty of fun elements. The route travels past giant flowers and models of animals native to the Pyrenees, some of which make their distinctive sounds which are bound to give some people a bit of a surprise.

What matters in FunPark is not the speed, but the fun surrounding the different elements. The first part features easy ski runs where the big flowers have been placed, and when the route goes into the forest it is the turn of local fauna to take centre stage. There are around a dozen figures featuring a wide variety of species: marmots, owls, deer, wolves, foxes, chamois and wood grouse, among others. Visitors can interact with the rubber figures and seek out the animals hidden among the trees. Fun guaranteed!

There is also a tobogganing area reserved for children. Open access under the surveillance and responsibility of parents. Ask us for sledges.

There is a reduced lift pass for beginners which you can only be used in Beretʼs area. It gives you acces to two beginners chairlifts.
