CERLER: A TOP FAMILY SKI RESORT IN SPAIN

12/04/2016,

Last Easter we headed to Cerler, the highest resort in the Aragonese Pyrenees for a great family break.   With its 80km of skiable slopes, Cerler has been awarded for three consecutive years (2014, 2015 and 2016) Spain’s Best Ski Resort.

Cerler is situated in the Benasque Valley, and it reaches 2.630 meter at its legendary Gallinero summit, giving a vertical drop of 1150 m. Cerler is a resort with extraordinary natural beauty surrounded by more than 60 peaks over 3.000 meters high.

It is an ideal ski resort for families, with a wide range and weekly schedule of activities for all ages.

A 4-seat chair lift provides the main access for the resort, that it  distributed along two valleys: Cerler and Ampriu,  both  linked by chair lifts. Each sector is accessible by road and has a parking area.

The resort provides all the facilities that families with kids might need: restaurants, parking,  several ski schools, shops, ski kindergardens (for kids 1-6 years old)

We booked different group lessons for the family with the Spanish Ski School (Escuela Española de Esquí de Cerler), and we really recommend their services.

Our favorite activity was without any doubt Huskyman at the Ampriu sector (you can read here the full post about dog sledding in the Pyrynees).

The resort offers different accommodation possibilities. We stayed at HG Cerler, a modern and charming hotel with huge family rooms and amazing views of the Benasque Valley.

The hotel provides free transport to the slopes (it can be quite stressful in the mornings so please follow the established timetable), “mini club”  activities for children, and a game room with free wi-fi.

It was a wonderful family holiday that makes me dream of a  “White” Christmas.
