BAQUEIRA BERET - VAL D'ARAN
Baqueira Beret, located in the Lleida Pyrenees between the Val d'Aran and Valls d'Àneu, is made up of four large areas, each with their own personality. The famous Baqueira, Beretand Bonaiguaarea joined last season by a fourth “B” - the new Baciverarea.
The resort was originally located exclusively in the Val d'Aran, yet thanks to an expansion towards Bonaigua and Peülla, it later reached the Valls d'Àneu(Pallars Sobirà). This means that it is accessible from two valleys, allowing visitors the option of discovering the richness of the Pyrenees from two very different sides. Likewise, skiers avoid crowding as they have a wide choice of accommodation.
With a total of 112 ski runsfor downhill skiing and snowboarding, plus 7 kilometres of cross-country skiing, snowpark, bordercross, spread across a total skiable area of 2.273 hectares. The area, with a vertical drop of 1.110 metres, beginning at 1,500 above sea level and reaching an altitude of 2.610 metres at the Cap de Baciver, accessible for the first time this season thanks to the installation of a ski lift of the same name.
Baqueira Beret invests annually in its facilities with the aim of improving the experience of the skiers and snowboarders who come to visit a ski area encompassing 162 kmof marked runs and 5 kilometres of off-piste runs. In addition to the marked runs, most of which are created by snow grooming machines, various installations complement the user experience. The recently installed Funparkin Beret is intended for families. Here, guests can enjoy a simple design full of life-size model native animals. This is a good example of how ski tourism is not in conflict with the world renowned off-piste options offered by the varied skiing terrain.
Meanwhile, the Audi Ski Kronosis another example of how visitors can enjoy new experiences in a ski resort, combining reality with the digital world. At this facility, located next to the Baqueira 2200 cafeteria, visitors compete on a timed giant slalom while they are recorded on video. When they cross the finish line, their time is automatically added to the virtual leader board and they can share their video, if they wish, on social media.
