Skiing in Cerler
Cerler is a high altitude, snow-sure resort in the Spanish Pyrenees in the region of Aragon. Whilst the skiing ranges from 1500m to almost 2700m, the majority is above 2000m which ensures good conditions throughout the winter. The skiing has a great mix of pistes with slopes suitable for all abilities, but Cerler really comes into its own for beginners and intermediates. Where the Alps tend to attract those looking for the really steep and challenging blacks, the Pyrenees is more for those who want to enjoy their skiing at less of an adrenaline busting level. The generally warmer climate also makes learning here more of a pleasure and so Cerler's suitability for school groups cannot be understated.
Not only is there more than 80km of piste to tackle, Cerler also boasts the 12km run with the acclaim of having the longest vertical descent in the Pyrenees - effectively you ski all the way from the very top to the very bottom in one run! The 80km are neatly spread across three areas, each with a slightly differing landscape which gives the feel that you are really exploring the mountains.
Cerler really is a great destination for school skiing.
