Granadas Sierras Nevada are snowcapped for much of the year and offer skiing from November
until late May. Being less than two hours drive from the coast, it really is possible to spend the
morning skiing and the afternoon sunbathing on the beach.During the rest of the year the Sierra
Nevada nature Park offers the walker endless opportunities.The ski resort of Sol y Nieve is located
in the Sierra Nevada mountain range and is the most southerly ski resort in Europe. The resort
hosted the 1996 World Ski Championships. Since then the World Cup Paragliding Championships
have taken place as well as Surfito, the most important snow boarding competition, cycling and rally events.
The finals of the World Cup in Alpine Skiing will be held in Sierra Nevada 1999.
The resort is only a 45 minute drive from Granada City and a 2 hour drive from Malaga airport. The historic city of Granada is well worth a visit.
