Europe’s Sunniest Skiing - Exclusive to Visions!
Referred to as the ‘Sunniest Ski Resort in Europe,’ Sierra Nevada defies many concepts associated with skiing. Located barely a stone’s throw from the Mediterranean coast, it has practically guaranteed sunshine, the best Spring snow conditions in Europe, and is still reasonably priced compared to many of its European counterparts.
As one of Europe’s highest resorts, it is very snow-sure and typically has a long season. Traditionally the season starts around the end of November running through to the end of April or even into the first week of May. The longest season on record was the winter of 2008/9 which ran from the 15th November 2008 until the 17th May 2009.
