Barcelona skiing season 2017.
After a good snowfall in November 2016 Grandvalira in Andorra and many of the other ski resorts in the Catalan Pyrenees Mountains opened for the 2016 Spanish  Inmaculada puente holiday from the 6th to 8th December.

However, until last week the snow on most pistes had been mostly extra artificial snow.

That has now changed with around 70 cm of new snow over just a few days, actually closing Andorra for a few days until the roads were cleared again.  Looks like the Winter 2017 ski season is going to be very good.

Among other  ski resorts close to Barcelona are Baqueira Beret (3.5 hours by car) La Masella (2 hours by car and La Molina (2 hours by car)

The closest ski resorts to Barcelona just 2 hours by car from the beaches and palm trees of Barcelona. Read more on the links below
