Baqueira Beret opens its three ski areas with 75 km of runs
Next Saturday 25 November the skiable area is to be extended to 75 km of runs with the resorts’ three areas open and all the Baqueira and Bonaigua ski lifts in operation.
Outstanding start to the season for the Val d’Aran and Valls d’Àneu resort with a total of 31 lifts and 49 runs open between Baqueira, Beret and Bonaigua which will mean visitors can enjoy a large part of the station. In fact the forecast is that all the lifts will be working at Baqueira and Bonaigua and almost 70% at Beret.
The November weather has brought plentiful snowfall which has led to good depths for the time of year coming to 20 cm at a height of 1,800 and up to 50 cm at 2,500. Plus the resort’s staff have produced snow which has improved the areas visited most by skiers and snowboarders.
The resort will lay on a total of 49 runs for visitors: 6 green, 30 blue, 12 red and 1 black. That’s more than enough to start the season without going down the same slope in the entire day. From Saturday ski passes will cost the usual €51.50 for adults and €34 for children.
In addition the Audi Ski Kronos next to the Baqueira 2,200 cafeteria is already up and running. It is an activity that can be done with family and friends to see who is fastest down a simple giant slalom run. The descent and time are recorded on video and skiers can download it at www.baqueira.es and share it on social media.
As for services, all Ski Service Baqueira Store (Baqueira 1500, Ruda, Beret and Bonaigua) rental and sale outlets will be open along with the main food services in the three areas and the crèche and playgrounds at 1500, 1800 and Beret which will be open from 9.30 am to 4.30 pm. People who have to pick up their season ski pass can do so at the Baqueira 1500 offices from 8.15 am to 7 pm.
The good snow conditions mean the resort is expecting an excellent double bank holiday period in early December and has the Christmas holidays assured. As a result its online booking system which guarantees the best deals on hotels in the Val d’Aran together with premium quality service is extremely busy: www.viajes.baqueira.es
