The resort

It has 137 km of marked pistes, being the largest of Spain. The highest point is Tres Hombres peak, 2250 m AMSL, with a vertical drop of 750 m.

The base of the resort is a purpose-built town which includes several hotels and apartments and is situated at 1500 m AMSL. From there an 8-seat chair lift provides the main access for the resort. Prior to 2004 this access was provided by a gondola lift, informally called "El huevo" (The egg) by its users. The resort itself occupies four different high mountain valleys, defining three sectors: Tres Hombres (Crestas), Izas, Anayet and El Portalet. Each valley is accessible by car and a bus service, with a parking and service area at its base from where the chair lifts depart.
