SIERRA NEVADA reduces ski routes to 20 kilometres in a bid to curb COVID-19 infections.
The Sierra Nevada resort will remain open but as from Monday (February 1) only residents of the Granada municipality of Monachil where the resort is located and federated teams will be able to ski at the resort. The aim is to keep 20 kilometres of snow slopes open in the areas of Rio and Loma de Dilar. This will give local skiers some stunning ski options with a drop of around 700 metres.
The local perimeter has been closed to help prevent further infections of COVID-19 but federated teams who have permission from the Higher Sports Council still be able to ski.
The ski resort has fought hard to keep open during the recent restrictions during the global pandemic and the board of directors of Cetursa, the company that runs the resort made the decision on Thursday to limit the amount of slopes available. They have seen a lessening in the demand for the resort amid the pandemic and have acted accordingly.
Assuming the weather conditions allow it, the 20 kilometres of skiable slopes will have two chairlifts open to ensure that skiers are well catered for.
The company aims to protect both themselves and workers as the ski resort is dependent on visitors to the area. The resort is normally a highlight of the ski season and visitors travel from all over to experience the slopes in Granada.
