Alp2500 is the name given to a lift network linking Masella and La Molina. It is a sizeable ski area offering 130 Km. slopes of all levels and 34 excellent modern lifts. You can ski between 1600 and 2535 m. height, so allowing a vertical drop of almost 1000 m. It makes a huge very well linked ski area. Although it is quite easy and fast to navigate there is a real sense of travelling, plenty of diversity and a big area feeling. Driving from one edge to the other is more than 15 Km. La Molina is the ski resort with a longest tradition in Spain (the first skilift here was built in 1943). Nowadays it is a modern resort very focussed to skiing and snowboarding racing (it has held in recent years both Ski World Cup and Snowboard World Champs). There are two main mountains in La Molina: Puigllansada and Tossa d´Alp, both perfectly linked. Puigllansada offers very varied terrain with both forests and open bowls. There are excellent beginner slopes and child care facillites at the bottom, while at mid-mountain there are very fast cruisers great for good intermediates and experts. Tossa d´Alp mountain is accesed by a gondola which also links to Masella. It has the longest slopes in the area with 700 m. vertical drop and high-mountain feeling. In powder conditions it is a great free-ride terrain. Masella occupies most of the huge northern face of Tossa d´Alp mountain (thus featuring very good snow conditions). It is a very big ski area with many slopes through a dense forest. Lifts are very fast and modern and there are pistes for all level of skiers. It is an excellent place to learn skiing or improve skills in the family & beginner areas dotted around. Having a vertical drop of almost 1000 m. it features really long descents. The top area is an open bowl with high mountain itineraries and black slopes that will challenge any expert. Alp2500 is easily the most popular ski area among people from Barcelona as it has a long season, a big modern lift network and a fast access from the city. Foreign visitors apreciate the famous sunny weather in the valley where Alp2500 is located. Actually bluebird skies and sun are the norm here, making Alp2500 the sunniest ski resort in whole Europe. Eventhough it features the longest ski season in the Pyrenees, from late November to early May. La Molina is a proper resort with all the services by the lifts and many activites and après-ski choices. Masella is much more quiet, as it has only one hotel by the lifts. The ski area is located in Cerdanya valley, Barcelona´s mountain playground. The mountain villages in Cerdanya valley such as Alp, Bellver o Llivia are wonderful places to stay, 10 to 20 minutes from the ski area. Puigcerdà is the valley main town (less than 20 minutes from Alp2500) and is famous because of its restaurants, shopping, bars, après-ski and activities.
