The opening forecast can not be more positive with the three areas of Baqueira, Beret and Bonaigua open for snow fans to finish the year in style.
At the moment, the upper levels of Baqueira Beret have up to 150 cm of snow and the mountain teams work to have at maximum performance the 105 routes of the resort, which add up to 152 km. The snowpark and the 7 km long back-country circuit are also being adapted. In addition, in the last 3 days have fallen to 75 cm of snow and temperatures have plummeted to -15ºC. An ideal situation to leave the Catalan Pyrenees season ready for Christmas.
This weekend opens the Fun Park Clot Der Os , located in Beret. It is a thematic circuit of 1.5 km, aimed at children from 6 to 12 years old, and also adults who want to play. Along the route there are two themes: on the one hand, modules with children's figures and geometric elements for children to interact with. The second is centered on the fauna of the Val d'Aran and is accessed through the chairlift of the same name in Beret.
