Everything you need to know to spend a day in Sierra Nevada Mar 13, 2011
List of things to check out BEFORE you arrive to Sierra Nevada:

*Choose a place to stay: the best place is probably Hotel Melia Sol y Nieve, but it's also the most expensive one (200 € - 250 € per night in double room). Another options are GHM Monachil, Kenia Nevada Hotel or different aparthotels (the cheapest option).

*The pistes open at 9am, so if you're travelling by car, be sure you will arrive one hour before the pistes open.

*The weather: visit cetursa.es just to know if your travel makes sense or not. With strong wind or rain or cloudy, it doesn't worth to go.

List of things you need to check out AS SOON AS you arrive to Sierra Nevada:

*Buy a Forfait: you can choose one-day forfait (45€), three-day forfait or seasonal forfait. You will need it to use the telecabin and go up the pistes.

*Rent the equipment: if you do not have the equipment, you will need to rent/buy it. There are several places to rent it but I always trust 'Dani Spin'. If you are about to buy it, I prefer to buy it BEFORE you arrive there (prices are expensive here boy!).

*Hire a teacher: if you want to learn ski/snowboard, ask in any shop or in authorised centers to hire a monitor (70 € per two hours).

*Eat: before you ski!

List of things you need to check out before leaving Sierra Nevada:

*Traffic Jams is horrible from 5pm to 7pm. It's better to wait until 8pm to drive back your home.
