The Sierra Nevada boasts the highest mountain on mainland Spain, Mulacen. A fantastic two day walk with an overnight stay in a comfortable refugio with incredible sights and beautiful scenery. In the winter there is great skiing and throughout the year there are great walks for all levels of ability.

For those staying during the winter, skiing in the Sierra Nevada is 2 hours drive. The ski season normally opens around the last weekend of November, depending on how the snow falls. The season's usual closing is in early May. Sierra Nevada is at an altitude of 2100 m with lifts going up to 3282m.

These mountains offer a picturesque backdrop to the numerous cities and towns that dot the range. Driving through the mountains can be sketchy in places, but the amazing views are worth it!

After driving through the plains the sierra nevada is a welcome sight. I took the bus from Madrid and by the time I saw the mountains I was too excited to continue watching the movie or try to sleep because I knew I was getting close to Granada!

This mountain resort is great in the summer and if you are a skier or snowboarder; great in the winter. If you come in the winter you can experience the spring like conditions in the club and then travel up to the mountain and go skiing. Its approx 3 hours drive and loads of places to stay. It is also an excellent ski resort for juniors or beginners with first class teaching slopes. www.sierranevada.co.uk
