Formigal is located in the Tena Valley, with splendid sorroundings and it is located in the North of the province of Huesca. But if anything characterises this beautiful resort in the Aragonese Pyrenees, is the environment. Furthermore, its great atmosphere, both on the slopes and après-ski. In Spain, it is considered one of the leading and youthful resorts thanks to the wide amount of activities offered.

 

Formigal

 

The Formigal ski resort has 137 skiable kilometres and is divided into four different areas: one is dedicated to beginners (Sextas), another sector where the slopes are for experts (Izas/Sarrios), the best sector for families is Anayet which has access to the most fun parts of the resort (Portalet). More than 70% of the nearly hundred tracks of the resort are red or black (71 of 97), although those who are don't feel ready to go down these kind of slopes can have as much adrenaline and fun by descending the 7 green slopes and 19 blue slopes available. So, Formigal can be a white paradise for both beginners and experts. 

 

Services

 

The resort offers ski hire. In any of their stores you can hire or buy poles, skis, snowboards, boots and skiing clothes. In addition, if you or any of your companions want to learn how to ski, you can book ski or snowboard lessons that are offered by the school that has more than 40 years of experience. It has a wide range of professionals qualified by the Spanish Ski School Committee and the Spanish Winter Sports Federation. The minimum age to be able to take lessons is 4 years old.

 

As already mentioned, Formigal is for everyone, and if you are a mom or a dad, the resort has three nurseries. Inside them, you can leave children where they will be taken care of while you enjoy skiing.

 

Activities

 

Formigal has a wide variety of bars and restaurants that offer exquisite cuisine at your disposal. But, let's face it, if you're one of those skiers that loves partying, Formigal could be your resort. Ski fans do not usually go out, because on the next day they have to be in perfect conditions to be able to ski and some skiers are not willing to miss the best snow conditions during the first morning hours. However, Formigal offers a great option: Marchica (located in the Sextas sector), which opens from 3 pm to 9 pm and offers live music, drink and food.

 

At the Formigal urbanisation and at the same resort, visitors will be able to find many restaurants where they can relax and enjoy a nice meal.

 

How to get to Formigal?

 

Formigal is 493 kilometres from Madrid, 370 kilometres from Barcelona and 165 kilometres from Pamplona. Driving there is quite simple, and you can get there by bus or car. To get to Formigal by road from Huesca, follow the A-23 motorway to the E-7 and then continue up the N-330, passing Sabiñánigo. Then take the N-260 to Biescas and pass through the A-136 to Formigal.

 

If you come from further away and intend to arrive by plane, the nearest airport is in France, Pau, just 66 kilometres from Formigal. In Spain, the nearest airports are Huesca (102 kilometres), Pamplona airport (160 km) and Zaragoza airport (165 km). From there you can continue by road to the resort.

 

If you want to forget the car and prefer getting the train, the nearest train station is in Sabiñanigo, 35 kilometres from Formigal. There you can get on a bus that connects with the resort. The Aramón Group, the company that manages the resort also provides a bus service called the White Bus, connecting some cities of northern Spain with Formigal.

The station looks good, when all the tracks and ski lifts are open
That the area of Sarrios, with the amount of snow it had had the ski lifts closed, only had two working to connect sectors

Snow? We skied on ice and bathtubs for two days. It can also be because of the exaggerated number of people there were.

The communication between the urbanization and the station is really good
The station is too crowded, a multitude of accidents and injuries, largely due to this factor in addition to very long queues on the ski lifts

For part of the station I would like the ski lifts of Collado, Anayet and espelunciecha to have more places, such as the sixth. It takes a lot of time to wait half an hour in line plus what the ski lift takes. And about people I feel a little sorry that they don't fill the ski lifts because all they can do is generate tail

The attention of the station staff and the ease of access.
I wish they put folding chairs on the TS of Sarrios and Collado. They have been like this since the first time I went, I don't know how many years already. The ski lessons contracted with the EEA have been quite disappointing.

For dates very few people and nice skiing.
The station itself will not have all the tracks or chairlifts. Lockers closed as coffee shops. It can't be that they charge you the same and there is minimal service. Shameful.

Too many tracks closed in half a week to open them only on the weekend. The price is the same they should leave the totality open, this will make them have fewer customers and keep reducing open lifts.
Too many teleski and too long. If compared to low snow tracks, Formigal is good. If I compare it with Baqueira, Andorra, Vars, Avoriaz .... Uff ...

The station is very good and has good accessibility
The quality of the snow in these dates leaves much to be desired. The prices, despite the fact that part of the station is closed and that the schedule has been reduced, also do not lower them by drinking being proportional to the services offered, as is the case in most of the Austrian stations.

We repeated this year because we liked it last year. The station is beautiful and I think they have made an effort to keep the snow there.
What I did not like is that, when I made the reservation, we bought the pass for the whole family from 9 to 5 in the afternoon. And when making the reservation they did not tell us that at this time of the year the station schedule was from 8.30 to 14.30. We would have gone anyway but knowing that was the schedule. And that was communicated to us a week before we went on a trip. Otherwise, no problem.

Little snow and closed tracks but that's not the fault of the season. It does not seem right that you can not park during the week in the area of Sarrios or charge to park in the area of Anayet if you want to leave the car near the ski lifts, they already charge the ski pass.

Good season for a weekend for advanced skiers.
Bad snow from 11:00, which would play in March, I suppose. Difficult to find a place in the restaurants at the weekend, without booking several days in advance: fairly limited offer.

For what it had snowed, almost all the tracks were open and with abundant snow
It gives the feeling that they do not step on the tracks, making some of them difficult due to the bathtubs and a lot of snow accumulated in some areas since morning

There was a red track, which was not well marked. Everything else great. The restaurants in Formigal close the kitchen a little early, so on Saturday we almost do not even get a dinner sandwich at 22:00 at night. Because of the people there. You have to book, otherwise you do not have dinner. The rest a 10.
