Worth a trip, although road to the ski resort closed one day owing to the weather. Skiers from France pop over the boarder too. Well geared lift system over a number of valleys, coupled with good organisation throughout. On a par with medium sized Tarantaise resorts, but mainly chair lifts here.

Formigal provides a great quality snow with plenty of backcountry slopes. It has a variety of diffrent levels, blue, red and black diamonts. It has a snowpark, fast chairlifts and plenty of bar/restaurant areas. The price for an adult with insurance costs 45€. Hope you enjoy this great resort.

Formigal has improved a lot in the recent years. We arrived there and found parking slot without problems. Directly in front of the parking, you have the chairlift. Enough tracks so that you always do something new. Very friendly staff both at the reception and at the ski rental place.

It is probably one of the best places for snow sports in Spain. A lot of km, large parkings, and a variety of tracks. All in a superb landscape. It gets crowded on weekends around 8-9 AM, so expect traffic jams to go up there.

Fab snow, great resort with plenty of options and great vibe to it! Will come back next year! Also, plenty of options for places where you can stop by and have a drink and a snack. Not too busy either which means you get plenty of skiing everyday!

I was born not far from there and I have always known Formigal. It has been growing and improving as skiing resort as well as Apres Ski Area. I like skiing there and I like going there. It is also very near another resort called Panticosa where going with family is a total pleasure.
