Sierra Nevada Ski Station is a ski resort in the Sierra Nevada in the province of Granada in southeastern Spain. The ski area is on the northern slopes of Veleta, the third highest peak in peninsular Spain. This is the most southerly ski resort of Europe. This is Europe’s southernmost ski station and the highest one in Spain. With its high elevation, the skiing season can last from late November until early May. Particularly towards the end of the season you can enjoy long, sunny days of skiing, although wind can be a problem due to Veleta's prominence and few trees. At the foot of the slopes there is a resort village, Pradollano, which stretches up a hill to the north of the pistes. The bottom of the village is at about 2100 metres above sea level, while the top is at almost 3400 metres above sea level. Pradollano is home to a large number of shops, including many that sell or rent ski equipment, souvenir shops and a small supermarket. There is also a variety of ski schools, restaurants, cafés, bars and nightclubs.
