Around 150,000 skiers have sped across the snow at the Val d’Aran and Valls d’Àneu resort between 25 December and Sunday 7 January. The weather has been unsettled but all the skiable kilometres and ski lifts were available on most days during the Christmas holidays.
If you have never skied and you want to start in this sport now is your chance!
With the title of "Start the year with Mozart" more than 200 people attended yesterday the appointment of the first day of the year with classical music in Baqueira. The flutist Claudi Arimany together with the string group Arts Quartet (violin, viola (2) and cello) performed works by Mozart and Kuhlau in the church located at 1500 meters at the Val d'Aran station. Claudi Arimany and his musicians responded to the long applause with three celebrated encores.
Weather permitting, during the Christmas holidays and at New Year Baqueira Beret is to have all its runs and ski lifts open. With 1.40 m depths high up in the mountains it’s time to upgrade ski and snowboard equipment at Ski Service Baqueira Store.
The skiable area at Val d’Aran and Valls d’Àneu is in spectacular condition and with the snowfall of recent days Baqueira is opening all its runs for the Christmas holidays. All in all the ideal chance to kick off the ski season at Ski Service Baqueira Store.
Hoy martes 26 de diciembre, las taquillas de Baqueira 1500 y Ruda permanecerán abiertas hasta las 20.00h para venta anticipada de forfaits.
From 24 December to 5 January the resort has a special programme for the Christmas holidays. Santa Claus will come to see children and all kinds of activities will be laid on for all audiences including the traditional torch descent, the New Year’s Eve concert and the Three Kings cavalcade with the snow grooming machines.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
