SIERRA NEVADA becomes a haven for Andalucian tourists in the midst of parameter confinement.
All across Spain, mobility between provinces has been restricted this Holy Week, measures which are set to remain in place until April 9 in an attempt to prevent the further spread of coronavirus. For Andalucians still wanting to get out and about over the holiday without risking a hefty fine, the Sierra Nevada ski resort is beckoning. This week, hotel bookings are up in the resort as people travel from all over the community to enjoy the slopes.
Throughout Holy Week if weather conditions allow, Sierra Nevada will have a total of 75 kilometres open to skiers along with the entire 1,200 metre slope. According to the resort, the quality of the snow is excellent at a thickness of between 40 centimetres and one metre. In addition to hosting regular skiers, from this weekend until Easter, Sierra Nevada will host 10 sporting events including three Spanish Championships.
The arrival of tourists from different parts of the Andalucian Community will come as a welcome relief to the bars, restaurants, shops and hotels, whose businesses have been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic.
Those wanting to take advantage of this idyllic local get-away much purchase a ski pass in advance to facilitate the resort keeping track of numbers.
