Baqueira Beret to have nearly 120 km of runs at the weekend
Weather permitting, the Val d’Aran and Valls d’Àneu resort will bring all its 35 ski lifts into service to provide access to 80 runs with a total of 118 skiable kilometres.
The winter temperatures over the last few days together with the heavy snowfall of a few weeks ago mean Baqueira Beret is extending its skiable area to 118 km of runs for the first weekend of December.
This is a good sign that the resort’s Baqueira, Beret and Bonaigua sectors will be in great shape for the double bank holiday period in the following week.
Skiers will be able to zoom down 6 green, 42 blue, 26 red and 6 black runs with powder or hard snow. At Baqueira almost 90% of runs are open with 70% at Beret and Bonaigua. Snow depths range between 20 cm at a height of 1,500 and 50 cm at 2,500.
All Ski Service and Baqueira Store (Baqueira 1500, Ruda, Beret and Bonaigua) ski rental outlets and most eateries on the runs, including the new Bosque cafeteria at Baqueira 1800, will be open along with the crèche and playgrounds at 1500, 1800 and Beret which will be available 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
