Barcelona is truly in a privileged location. You can enjoy the gorgeous beaches in summer by swimming, tanning, or building sandcastles, and you are not too far away from the Pyrenees to go skiing in winter.

We have prepared for you a selection of three of the best ski resorts, please also note that some resorts are closer to the city than the ones we have chosen, La Molina or La Masella for example.
