Feeling a little bit jealous of everyone in Sierra Nevada right now

I have been looking at the webcams for Sierra Nevada in Granada this morning as my buddies have headed up there for a few days.  Here is the link:  http://sierranevada.es/es/webcams/

Slightly envious, but as I am not able to ski due to my knee surgery I can only look on from the sidelines, instead I can sit and watch, admiring the scenery, watching the children learning – who always seem to have no fear and adapt so quickly.  From what I can see, it looks like lots of powder and approx 70 Kms of skiing area.  Nice!

If you have never ventured further than the beaches and ports of Malaga, you are missing out.  Depending on your driving technique, just 2 -3 hours north is Sierra Nevada in the Provence of Granada.  This mountain range is truly beautiful with the snow at this time of year and the ski station is a brilliant place to learn and experience après ski.

My recommendation is get up that little bit early, say 6.00 and drive to get there for 8.30 – 9  (you will miss the traffic up the mountain road this way).  Hire your gear if you have none and there are plenty of shops who will help you if you are new to this, but remember your ID.  Get straight up to the first station – sometimes there are queues, so best to get through and up and have breakfast there.  Once you have had a little brekkie, head up on to the different areas, depending on your level and enjoy this relaxed chilled out environment.  By about 14.30 you will be ready to come home and ski all the way to the bottom if you have the energy, hand back you gear and head back to Malaga and have dinner by the coast.  Perfect day eh!  Love to hear from anyone who is going there this year and your experiences as I am very very jealous!  Oh and if anyone is brave enough for the night skiing, really interested in hearing of your experiences.
