The Lleida Pyrenees, one of the largest ski zones in Spain!

The 11 ski resorts of the Lleida Pyrenees offer you one of the largest skiable areas in the whole of Spain, with accommodation for over 30,000 visitors in hotels, camp sites, flats and rural houses located near the slopes..

The possibilities for enjoying the snow in the Lleida Pyrenees are immense. To the great variety of Alpine and Nordic skiing that these eleven centres offer in winter, it is necessary to add a wide range of ludic, sporting and leisure activities, offering something to meet all needs and budgets. Visitors can combine enjoying the local beauty spots with other activities including: snowshoe outings, dog-sleigh rides and excursions, snowmobiles, horse riding, quads, heliskiing and panoramic helicopter flights, amongst other options.






  • Skiers must behave responsibly and not endanger or prejudice other skiers.
  • Skiers must be in control of their skiing at all times.
  • When skiers descend the slopes, they must choose a route that guarantees the safety of other users who are further down the hill.
  • When skiers overtake, they must leave sufficient space to allow any skiers overtaken to make their own movements.
  • When skiers enter a slope, they must look up and down the hill to make sure that the slope is free.
  • Skiers must avoid stopping on slopes, particularly when they are narrow, dangerous, or have poor visibility.
  • Slope users and other people who go up or down the hill on foot must do so using the sides of the slopes.
  • Skiers must always obey all signs and indications from ski resort staff.
  • In the event of an accident, all skiers must give help and assistance, to the best of their possibilities, and notify ski resort staff.
  • If required, all slope users involved in and/or witnessing accidents must identify themselves to the ski resort staff and the relevant authorities.



  • Artificial snow is water in the form of powder mixed with air which, at sub-zero temperatures, becomes snow.
  • Artificial snow does not contaminate!
  • The water used to make artificial snow is always what is left over from other needs and uses.
  • The water that is used is temporarily stored in the form of snow and returns to the hydrological system in a perfectly natural way when the snow melts. It is not wasted!
  • The melt-water from artificial snow has the same physical and chemical composition as water from natural snow and therefore does not require any additional cleansing or water treatment by Public Bodies.
  • Al of the investment required for a system for producing artificial snow (water collection, storage and distribution) can be organised by the ski resorts themselves.
  • The consumption of water for the production of artificial snow is very low in absolute terms. In a single day, the city of Barcelona consumes more water than all the Catalan ski resorts combined in the whole ski season.
  • The consumption of water associated with the production of artificial snow is very low in comparison with the number of jobs that it creates.
  • Like irrigation in agriculture, the production of artificial snow helps to give greater stability to tourist activity and employment in mountain and valley areas throughout the winter season.
  • In the mountain and valley areas the production of artificial snow is a necessity for work and life in winter.


Artificial snow is good for everyone!
