The festive season wouldn’t quite be the same without a little bit of snow, as even those people who relocate to Marbella for the glorious sunshine crave the taste of a winter wonderland during the Christmas season. Luckily, the Sierra Nevada Ski resort is located just over a two-hour drive from Marbella, making it possible for locals and tourists alike to immerse themselves in some traditional winter activities during the Christmas holidays in Marbella.

Sierra Nevada Ski Resort

Here the cloudless sky creates a picturesque scene that is sure to leave you breathless as the sun shines brightly over the powdered white mountains. Often described as the Costa del Ski, the Sierra Nevada is one of the sunniest ski resorts in Europe – making it possible to get a winter tan while you participate in your favourite pastime.
The fun resort has something to offer everyone from the keen snowboarder and the professional skier to the complete beginner; boasting 115 ski runs (both on and off-piste), cross country trails, the largest snowboarding park in Europe and a selection of night ski adventures, the resort makes for a fun-filled weekend.
