The Three Kings have turned up early in the Val d’Aran and the Valls d’Àneu with abundant snowfall in November and December that weather permitting will make it possible to open all the runs and lifts.
The opening forecast could not be better with the three Baqueira, Beret and Bonaigua areas open for fans of winter sports who have chosen the Aranese station as a Christmas destination to round off 2017 in style.
The double bank holiday week in early December is always a great thermometer for measuring the health of winter tourism. The more than 70,000 people who came to the Val d’Aran and Valls d’Àneu resort during the week bode well for an excellent season.
With minds already turning to the Christmas holidays, the amount of snow built up on the runs and the 140 km of open slopes give grounds for optimism. The December 2017 double bank holiday will be remembered as one of the best ever at Baqueira Beret where 90% of runs have been open with snow depths of more than one metre in high areas.

After more than 75 cm of snow fell on Friday and Saturday, weather permitting the Val d’Aran and Valls d’Àneu resort will open 97 runs with a total of 137 skiable kilometres.
Skiers and snowboarders who come to Baqueira Beret will enjoy one of the December double bank holidays with the most snow in recent years. Towards the top of the mountains snow depths stand at more than one metre while lower down they are 65 cm.
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.
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.
