This page will tell you all you need to know about transfers to Formigal, a ski resort in Aramon, Spanish Pyrenees with 137km of Piste with altitudes ranging from 1500m to 2200m above sea level. This resort is part of the Aramon ski area with access to 202 individual pistes. In addition to the skiing in Formigal itself (137km of pisted ski runs), the appropriate ski Lift Pass will allow you to ski or snowboard in the other Aramon ski resorts of Cerler, Javalambre, Panticosa and Valdelinares. The ski resort itself is above 1500m, so skiing or boarding back to the resort is usually possible. With skiing above 2000 metres, snow cover is generally reliable.
We have listed the airports in order of distance from the resort, with the nearest at the top. This should give you the best idea of the airport transfer you need.

Formigal, officially Aramón Formigal, is a ski resort in the Aragon Pyrenees of northeastern Spain, near the town of Sallent de Gallego in the upper Tena Valley in the province of Huesca. The resort has 137 km of marked pistes. The highest point is Tres Hombres peak at 2,250 m above sea level, with a vertical drop of 740 m; the majority of its slopes face north and northeast. The base of the resort is a purpose-built town which includes several hotels and apartments at 1,500 m. From there an 8-seat chairlift provides the main access for the resort. Prior to 2004 this access was provided by a gondola, informally called "El huevo" (The egg) by its users. The resort itself occupies four different high mountain valleys, defining three sectors: Tres Hombres (Crestas), Izas, Anayet and El Portalet. Each valley is accessible by car and a bus service, with a parking and service area at its base from where the chair lifts depart.
Formigal successfully hosted the FIS Alpine Junior World Ski Championships in 2008, held in late February.
