Javi is here today to recommend some ski-in ski out accommodations in the Aragonese Pyrenees . Whatever you are looking for , you have a hotel waiting for you this season.
Good Javi! Why do you recommend the Aragonese Pyrenees to go skiing?
Hi! I wanted to be here too and tell you everything I know about the Aragonese Pyrenees ...
First of all, I recommend it because it has resorts for all levels and tastes in a very limited geographical space.
Whether you are an expert skier or snowboarder, or if you are just starting to ski, there is a resort that will adapt to your preferences and I guarantee that you will not get bored. In the Aragonese Pyrenees you will find large, medium and small ski resorts, for beginners, for experts, families, friends, etc. Everything you are looking for, you have it, therefore as a ski destination, it is one of the most complete.
And for someone as skier as you, what accommodations directly on the slopes would you recommend?
If we take into account that I always want to get to the slopes first , it has to be a hotel that is very close to them.
For example, in the case of Formigal, I would surely choose the Nievesol 3 * hotel , which is located right in the Formigal urbanization and you can reach the slopes with your car in less than 2 minutes or take directly one of the free buses from the resort.
Also, as you are very close to the hotel, you can go tobogganing after dark.
You do not know what it is? Very simple: you go up on the Sallent chairlift around 8 pm. and, after having dinner at the Trattoría Cantal (at an altitude of 1,800 meters), you have to descend on a wooden sled down a 2.5-kilometer-long illuminated track.
An impressive experience!
If we are talking about Cerler, I would book at the HG Cerler 3 * hotel which is located almost directly on the slopes, 1.5 km. This hotel has a free transfer that can take you back and forth to the "El Molino" chairlift, so you make sure to have the slopes open every day ... and incidentally, at the end of the ski day, you can have a few beers at Remáscaro (which is the Aprés-ski of the resort) and return to the hotel to recharge batteries.
On the other hand, if I had to go skiing to Astún-Candanchú, I would opt for Apartments Canfranc 3000. They are located in the municipality of Canfranc-Estación, just 7 kilometers from the ski resorts. Thus, I can get to the slopes first and enjoy them during the day and in the afternoon I can go sightseeing in Canfranc-Estación and visit the International Railway Station , do some shopping or take a walk along the Paseo de los Melancólicos.
And finally, could you tell us some curious fact that we do not know about the Aragonese Pyrenees?
Clear! I know several, as in Candanchú there is one of the steepest slopes in the entire Pyrenees with a 60% slope (La Zapatilla). Or that in Formigal you can reach several off-slopes through a ratrack (snow plow machine), it is something impressive!
La Zapatilla court, with the famous silhouette of the sole in the background.
Thank you very much, Javi! After all this information we can't wait to travel to the Aragonese Pyrenees
Thank you very much! I hope that my experience will help you to choose a hotel in the Aragonese Pyrenees and ... I hope to see you all on the slopes!
