Baqueira Beret is the ski resort with the largest skiable area in Spain, with 2.166 ha. Year after year the station attracts a large number of ski enthusiasts or winter sports practicants. The quality and abundance of snow throughout the season, thanks to the north orientation of the slopes, apart from the modern facilities available, are the keys to its success. It is located in the Catalan Pyrenees, in the regions of the Aran Valley and the Pallars Sobirà.
Inaugurated on 1964 December 6, the ski station is divided into three main areas interconnected by lifts: Baqueira, with a maximum elevation in Cap de Baqueira (2,500 m), Beret, with the top elevation point in Tuc de Dossau (2,516 m), and Bonaigua, with the highest elevation in Tuc de la Llança (2,656 m). All areas have slopes of all levels of difficulty.
From the highest points of the domain the skiers can enjoy fantastic panoramic views of the Pyrenees and spot peaks such as Maladeta or Pico Aneto, with more that 3,000 meters of high. Baqueira Beret has two cross-country skicircuits, one of 7 km, well marked, and another of about 40 km, freestyle. Every year a large number of national and international ski competitions take place here, such as the popular March of Beret.
