Boí Taüll Resort is the highest ski area in the Pyrenees and Ski Pallars High Pyrenees offer excellent snow conditions from early December till late April. Excellent uncrowded slopes, plenty of terrain and dramatic pyrenean panoramas are the best selling points here. The package includes 5 nights in Boí Taüll (4 ski days) and 2 nights in Pallars (2 ski days). Boí Taüll ski area starts over 2000 m. high and its 10 modern lifts go up till 2751 m. (highest in the Pyrenees). All the ski area is open, above the tree-line and north-facing. Therefore snow conditions are excellent both in quantity and quality. Ski season is very long and you can find powder snow in April. The 45 Km. of slopes tend to be very long with a maximum vertical drop of 750 m. Most of the ski area is geared toward intermediates but the base area is excellent for beginners. Experts will be thrilled by the fast, long, deserted red cruises but specially with the boundless off-piste skiing routes. Freestylers will enjoy the BT-freeXperience Snowpark. Slopes tend to be deserted and even in high season there are no queues. The Boí Taüll Resort, at 1600 m. height, is a compact collection of hotels and apartments. Even if purpose-built, they are buildings with plenty of stone, wood and slate which makes a really pleasant resort. Hotels and apartments range from 2* to 4* and offer all kind of services, restaurants. bars. clubs, a very good spa and a well organized animation program both for adults and kids. The ski area is 8 km. away (served by regular ski-bus). Quaint Taüll village, with its wonderful romanesque church is only 2 Km. away from the hotels. Ski Pallars, the ski resort of the High Pyrenees, is not a single ski area but 3: Portainé, Espot Esquí and Tavascan. They are all covered by the same skipass (included in your package price). Espot Esquí enjoys an amazing high mountain location, bordering Aigüestortes National Park. It offers 23 Km. of slopes and a vertical drop of 1.000 (1500-2500 m. high). Most of the slopes are in a forested area with great views. Portainé is a big bowl with 800 m. vertical drop under Pic de l´Orri (1640-2440 m). All the ski area is north-facing so snow quality is guaranteed. Actually, Portainé is famous for having some of the best snow quality in the Pyrenees. There are almost 30 Km. of slopes catering for beginners, families and timid intermediates. Tavascan is more a mountain resort than a ski resort. It has a chairlift with a 500 m. vertical drop featuring a couple of excellent, long intermediate slopes. The High Catalan Pyrenees are a place for those who love mountains, authenticity and real skiing holidays. It is one of the places with less permanent population in the whole Pyrenees so you will have this mountain paradise mostly for yourself. Though meeting the valley inhabitants is a real pleasure and a way to discover traditions, festivals and gastronomy almost unchanged for centuries. Small stone villages in the sunny sides of the mountains boast impressive romanesque churches from the Middle Ages. Most of them are classified as UNESCO world heritage and are a real must-visit during your holidays. Part of the valleys belong to “Aigües Tortes” National Park, one of the best preserved and biggest national park in the Pyrenees. The park and the whole area are famous for their dramatic mountain landscapes.
