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.

I did not like that they will not treat the snow on April 13. That they had more than half a station closed, alleging weather conditions, which were the same as on the open slopes. Closing at 14.40 the ski lifts, when the price of the fortfait is the same. I don't think I'll come back anymore.

The station schedules were changed without notice and without any compensation. Some restaurants were closed and others, at 2:00 p.m. (Panticosa), already had problems feeding. On Wednesday the slopes of Formigal were not trodden on.

They have extended two very good and more or less fast new chairs.
We have enrolled our son in school like every year (and it's been 6 years). With the excuse of COVID, they have not done slalom or competition and therefore they have not awarded medals or diplomas with the child's ski level, which motivates them a lot. Nor the cool snoopy pin they get every year. I think it's a mistake. Although they are nonsense for us, they look forward to it. We were a bit disappointed in that regard.

The day pass is a bit excessive. That there is no middle ground. Not long ago I was skiing in the Alps in the Chamonix area and they had day, half-day and hourly ski passes, for example 3 hours, 4 hours... Etc.
A fairly common thing in Formigal is the wind and they should be willing to reduce the price or return part of the ski pass when such a situation arises in the middle of the morning, for example.

Very friendly staff and very functioning in general
The snow immediately turned "potato". Talked with other skiers, they say that it is because of the way of treading the slopes, that in other seasons they are more compacted, and in this one if they are not so compacted as soon as they drop 4 and the temperature rises, the snow is churned.

The station is very good for all levels. In my case, between beginners and intermediate, it has many clues to improve the level. I can confirm that they step on the tracks both after closing and before opening.
They are at the mercy of the weather and the use that people give to the slopes. But they really last in good condition only the central part of the day.

The price of ski passes with insurance is high. On days of low influx we have found sectors closed without justification, I don't know if it is due to cost issues, but precisely those of us who give money to the station on those days pay for the entire domain.

The amount of red and black The treatment of the staff. Teachers that you saw on the track or coincided on the chairlift... Nice and nice. (Removing some rude). Off track
Too many stationary chairlifts, the little interior space in the restaurants for those who take the normal menu. (I'm not talking about having a picnic anymore). Either you take a vip menu or there is hardly any room inside. Bad organization when an institute or something arrives. They look overwhelmed. Snow maintenance during the day.
