The arrival of the cold means for many to be able to practice this sport again. For others also the opportunity to start at the hand of a good ski school. Now, which season to travel to enjoy good facilities and better teachers to learn how to handle this winter sport?

Baqueria Beret ski resort

We begin with one of the most famous and largest stations in the country. It is located in the beautiful Valle de Aran, in the Lleida Pyrenees, and occupies four areas: Baqueria, Beret, Baciver and Bonaigua. We are talking about four heights with their respective valleys where you can ski.

Although it is famous for being very exclusive, thanks to ski schools such as Deportes J.Moga, today anyone can enjoy its slopes, from the most experienced to the initiated. It should also be noted that the school has a long history and, if you go as a family, even better because Deportes J. Moga is specialized in training the little ones.

In addition, it will offer you these services:

  • All kinds of material for rent and they even have a workshop in case yours deteriorates.
  • Individual or corporate classes.
  • Classes range from beginner to advanced.

If you choose this ski resort, do not forget to contact or stop by Deportes J.Moga so that everything is easier and cheaper for you.

Now we go with the characteristics of Baqueria Beret.

In addition to the beautiful place where it is located, it is also one of the oldest stations since it was founded in 1964. But the most interesting thing is its capacity and characteristics:
