Astun:

The Astún ski resort is located in the Aragonese Pyrenees, specifically in the Aragón Valley. It is a strategic enclave, since it occupies the centre of what could be the largest snow field on the peninsula if the three ski resorts of Formigal, Astún and Candanchú were joined. Astún has a wide variety of slopes for all levels.

According to the policy of the Astún ski resort, if during its operation, for security reasons or other justified reasons, the Management is forced to close the facilities and slopes to the public, it will not be possible to refund the amount of the ski pass. .
 
 
Candanchu:

Candanchú is located at more than 1,500 meters above sea level, in a beautiful setting in the Aragonese Pyrenees. This is one of the oldest resorts in Spain, inaugurated in 1928 and one of the most beautiful.

 
It is the Spanish ski resort that has one of the best and largest areas for beginners in the world. But it also has red and black slopes, as well as various off-piste routes. In addition, for the most daring skiers and snowboarders you will find a snowpark .
 
The resort has car park directly on the slopes. In general, there are no problems to park, but if you go on festive dates you may find it more crowded than normal or you may have to go around a few times to find a space.
 
 
Information about both resorts:
 
Astún : The ski passes will be loaded on a support/card whose price is €3.00/card. - (NON-REFUNDABLE) - Once this amount has been paid at the ticket office, the card will become the accommodation of the user for successive top-ups during the following seasons.
 
Candanchú: All Ski Passes are delivered in “hands-free” card format, for which the payment of €1 will be required.
 
Children aged between 0 and 5 years (included), have to pay €15 at the ski resort ticket offices for a ski pass, ski insurance and a menu (equivalent to approximately half an adult menu). They will also have to pay the same as adults the €3 for the Ski Pass card. (They must prove the child's age with an official document at the lockers).

Candanchu is a station for people with an advanced level, which offers many more possibilities than Astun in terms of itineraries, but Astun's facilities and services are light years away from those of Candanchu, which are not bad but leave a little to be desired due to its age.

Recommendable.
From the public address system it is indicated that you must wear a mask on the lifts. It seems incoherent to me that they say it and not even take it by the ski lift staff. Ski lift staff smoke on the ski lift itself. I am not saying that masks should be kept in these types of places; but it is said over the public address system, of birthday. And if not, don't say anything. Coherence.

Pretty stations. They are not very big but it compensates with the beauty of its landscapes, especially Candanchú.
Old ski lifts in Candanchú. Opening of some chairs half an hour late. Machines stepping on tracks at 9:30 a.m. In Astún, the signaling of tracks and security protections to improve. Both directions must put the batteries.

The poor quality of the food in the self service. I have never eaten such bad food in my life, worse than in any school or hospital canteen. Food without variety, cold and of poor quality. Of the 5 days, only two included the drink that we had paid for and they did not sit at the table with the school groups and we had to be eating among all of them.

I love Astún as a resort, it's a lot of fun, the slopes and off-piste slopes and the value for money is very good.
That the "school" buses occupy half of the parking lot, they only leave children at 9 and pick them up at 17, they can go park elsewhere instead of blocking half of a parking lot that is already scarce.

They have always been very beautiful seasons with a very beautiful natural landscape
The state of the snow is poorly maintained (the slopes are not stepped on enough). There is a lot of ice and stones due to not raking the slopes well. Open bars on the slopes are scarce. You have to go down to the beginning of the slopes to be able to find the restaurants where you can have a drink or go to the WC. Many lifts are old, uncomfortable and slow. They need a complete renovation. Lack of a connection lift between Candanchu and Astun. That would give a lot of life to both stations in the ski area.

In Astún good slopes, well trodden and for all levels. Beautiful views. Very familiar station. You have to go to Candanchú knowing how to ski because the slopes are difficult (it has a good area for beginners but intermediate level...). The views are incredible. It is worth taking the chairlifts to see them even if you don't ski.
