During Christmas, the resort in Granada has organized dozens of activities aimed primarily at children and families (cinema, games in the snow, concerts, Santa Claus on tracks, Grapes of Luck and Cabalgata de Reyes Magos, among others). With the arrival of the new year, Sierra Nevada starts the calendar of competitions and commercial events , with some 30 sporting appointments from next weekend until the end of the season.

Although the Andalusian resort has been offering tracks for six weeks in its six ski areas (Veleta, Laguna, Loma Dílar, Río, Parador-Cauchiles and Borreguiles), now the machines and the snow system produced concentrate their efforts on incorporating new routes and completing others , such as the 'black' tracks or the complete itinerary of the El Águila track, one of the longest in Spain with almost 6 kilometers of route.
