Nordic Skiing
Puerto de la Ragua Ski & Mountain Resort

Situated in one of the least-known areas of the Sierra Nevada massif, astraddle the provinces of Granada and Almería, Puerto de la Ragua forms a natural mountain pass between two clearly distinct regions whose customs, traditions and life style remain unchanged despite the passing of time. Just 15 km to the south, we are greeted by the age-old, Moorish charm of La Alpujarra; while to the north, we are awed by the majesty and grandeur of the Castilian high plateau of Marquesado del Zenete. At an altitude of 2,000 m, Estación Recreativa proudly surveys the surrounding area, the beaches of Almería, Cabo de Gata, Sierras de Baza, Cazorla, Segura and las Villas, Sierra Mágica, Sierra de Húetor, the Guadix-Baza Basin, looking right across to the snow-capped peaks of Sierra Nevada. Far removed from the hustle and bustle of alpine skiing resorts, Puerto de la Ragua promotes all kinds of outdoor pursuits (long-distance skiing, mountain biking, Al backpacking, orienteering and archery) in a perfect, natural setting which is also the home of the Sierra Nevada National Park.
