Season with lots of snow and more skiers at Baqueira Beret
The Val d’Aran and Valls d’Àneu ski resort ended winter 2017-2018 on Sunday 8 April with an increase in the number of skiers it hosted compared to last season. The station opened the winter very early on Saturday 18 November and closed it on schedule to total 142 days in operation with 887,000 skiers. The 2017-2018 season will be remembered as one of the best ever at Baqueira Beret. Overall there have been 63 days of snowfall with total depths before grooming of up to 10 m, twice as much as last season. In a nutshell, a tremendous winter which made it possible to open the resort a week earlier than planned on 18 November, with depths of up to 50 cm on the runs and almost 140 km of runs already open by the time of the December double bank holiday. The resort has outdone the figures achieved in 2016-2017 by almost 80,000 skiers.
