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. 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.
