Baqueira-Beret ski resort located in the heart of the Pyrenees, in the Aran Valley and Àneu Valley Lleida, Spain. It is the largest and most visited winter resort in Spain, with 146 kilometers of marked pistes, 7 kilometers of marked off-piste, and 7 kilometers of cross-country ski and 2,166 hectares of ski area. It is located in the highest part of the Aran Valley (Naut Arán), and Pallars Sobirá (Valls d'Aneu). It has long and wide ski runs, some through trees. It is divided into three different zones, Baqueira, Beret and Bonaigua. Due to its westerly aspect and position on the northern side of the Pyrenees, and consequent Atlantic climate, the resort of Baqueira-Beret has a good snow record throughout the winter. In addition, there is more than 1,000 meters (3,300 ft) of vertical drop and an extensive skiable zone. Much of the region of the Aran Valley and Àneu Valley is made up of over 50 small rural populations, each one with stone and wood houses and ancient Romanesque churches. The resort was founded 60 years ago on the initiative of the local authorities in the Aran Valley.
