Meeting Point

The meeting point is always on the slopes (unless required differently), in Borreguiles, immediately to the right of the exit of the Al Andaluz gondola (telecabina).

In case you take the telecabina Borreguiles from Pradollano to Borreguiles, you need to go up both flight escalators as you leave the gondola; then leave the building out to the Borreguiles terrace, cross it and head for the building in front (30 meters away), where the telecabina Al Andaluz arrives.

Ski pass (forfait) purchase & Accomodation

A compra prévia do seu passe/forfait é recomendável porque os passes disponíveis a cada dia são limitados e este limite é variável para cada data. Os preços são dinâmicos (desde 2022) em função da procura (podem aumentar com a proximidade da data). Evite chegar a Serra Nevada e encontrar a venda esgotada!

We are not mediators but only 'facilitators'. We work exclusively with the agency BED & SNOW of Sierra Nevada (their store is located at the plaza Pradollano; working hours 09:00-20:00). Tell us how many adults and kids (ageing 15 or less) need the ski-pass, and the exact consecutive days you want to use them (to get the 'Family deal', you need a minimum of 3 nuclear family members, for a minimum of 3 days pass, and will have to present/send a copy of the family book or passports). Make us a bank transfer of a little more of the estimated value (since prices are dynamic), the agency will get them for you, and we will make them available to you at the rental store (Pradollano plaza) on the day you rent your ski/snowboard equipment, with no extra cost.

We will not purchase any ski passes/forfait for a single day use, or with less than 3 days in advance, or if they are not yet fully payed. Remember the Cetursa conditions will also apply, specially regarding devolution (20 euros will be retained), etc. (any eventual problems with the functioning of the ski passes will have to be handled with the 'Atención al cliente' office, in front of the Al Andaluz gondola).

The BED & SNOW agency deals with apartments located at the central and intermediate zone of the Sierra Nevada resort and will find the best options for the most confortable stay of your group. We will get you in touch!

Ski & snowboard rentals

Snow Life has an agreement with Custom Aventura rental store that grants you an immediate discount of 10% on any ski/snowboard rentals in case you are having classes with us. They are very professional and will grant you the best assistance. The store is located at Plaza Andaluzia, number 8 of edifício Enebro building (in front of the pharmacy, 25 meters away from the ski passes offices and at a 40 seconds walk from the Al Andaluz gondola), opens 08:30 to 20:30 with prices from 26€/day (ski)/ 28€ snowboard; 18€ (snowboard or ski for children under 12) - see all at 'About ski'.
