167 kilometres of slopes
Skiers and snowboarders will enjoy more kilometres this winter thanks to a new red slope at Baqueira Beret: Eth Coret. It starts at the bottom of the Baciver ski lift and goes all the way to Orri. With a distance of 1,496 m, it provides a comfortable connection from the Baciver area to Orri alongside spectacular views of Cara Nord de Baqueira.
Meanwhile, specific areas of the resort were updated over the summer: the Peülla, Pleta del Duc, Cap a Baqueira and Debutants runs have been redone, taking advantage of the snowmaking system. Likewise, runs in the Baciver area and improvements to the Terrain park located in Beret have been completed.
With a total of 112 marked runs and 3 off-piste runs, the total distance will be 162 km of marked runs and 5 km off-piste. In total, 167 skiable kilometres are spread over an area of 2,273 ha.
50 new snowmaking machines
Baqueira Beret has expanded the snowmaking area on the Bonaigua, specifically on the Debutants and Cap a Baqueira runs and at the access to the Tuc de la Llança ski lift and the Pleta del Duc and Peülla runs. This enhancement translates into a total of 50 new snowmaking machines to guarantee snow in key areas of this section. Currently, the total number of snowmakers stands at 710, with the capacity to cover half of the resort’s slopes.
