Formigal-Panticosa, ski and fun.
Formigal-Panticosa is a ski domain located in the Aragonese Pyrenees, in the Tena Valley, in the province of Huesca.
The ski pass gives access to the largest ski area in Spain made up of two independent ski resorts (Formigal and Panticosa), 6 valleys, 182 skiable kilometers and 147 slopes. A free ski-bus service connects the four valleys of Formigal and the ski resort of Panticosa.
In addition to skiing, in Formigal-Panticosa we can practice numerous activities in the snow such as snow biking, snowshoeing, or tobogganing, among others.
Formigal is one of the liveliest resorts in the Pyrenees, both during the day and at night, which makes it one of the reference centers in Spain for lovers of white sports.
A step away from the town of Sallent de Gállego, Formigal offers 143 kilometers of pistes distributed along the valleys of Sextas, Sarrios, Anayet, and Portalet.
Access to the slopes area is easy and comfortable. The Formigal ski resort has four parking areas, which, except for Anayet, are free.
Being staying in Formigal, it is not necessary to take the car to go to the slopes. The ski resort offers a free bus service that in a few minutes connects the center of the Formigal urbanization with the main accesses to the ski area.
Among its slopes in Ski Paradise we highlight:
Tres Hombres (red). With a length of one and a half kilometers and a drop of 450 meters, Tres Hombres is the most emblematic slope of the Formigal ski resort. Approved by the FIS, the piste has hosted numerous international competitions.
El Bosque (red). This slope runs through a forest located at an altitude of 1,800 meters and stands out for its spectacular views and the beauty of its surroundings.
Formigal has a series of ski routes and off-piste areas for practicing freeride.
The ski resort has a ski-ratrack, a snow groomer that, thanks to a cable, transports skiers to areas that are not accessible by ski lifts in the Portalet area.
In addition, Formigal has a Snow Park, a Funny Track with dubies, jumps and hilarious challenges designed for the little ones, and a Chrono slalom track accessible to all skiers.
During the day you will be able to enjoy the multiple activities scheduled on the slopes, permanently animated by the music of its DJs.
To lunch, the Formigal ski resort has a wide variety of restaurants that you will find scattered throughout the ski area. Among them, Cabaña La Glera stands out in the middle of the mountain, a charming little restaurant where you can enjoy excellent grilled meats and the incredible views.
The Sarrios igloo and the Indian forest village are a must for those traveling as a family, especially with small children.
In the evening, Formigal offers the possibility of taking night walks on snowmobiles or dog sleds. A unique experience!
Finally, Marchica, located in the Sextas area, is one of the greatest exponent of Après Ski in the Pyrenees. Its popularity makes many people visit Formigal just to enjoy its atmosphere.
Panticosa is a charming little town that has managed to maintain its character. Although its offer is aimed at all types of skiers, Panticosa is an ideal destination for those traveling with the family.
The Panticosa sector has 39 kilometers of slopes. Its maximum height is located at 2,200 meters and the minimum in the town at 1,150 meters. Thanks to its north orientation, during most of the season we can ski down to the town along the Estrimal slope, a spectacular red slope with a skiable drop of 1,100 metres, the largest in the Pyrenees.
For more expert skiers, the Valle de Tena black slope descends from the highest point of the resort at 2,200 meters on Cerro Cuartalé and offers a spectacular 360º panoramic view of the entire Valle de Tena.
Freeride lovers will find the largest accumulations of snow in the Sabocos sector, which makes it the perfect place to enjoy powder snow.
At the end of the ski day, the fun continues with a complete après-ski entertainment for the whole family.
The Panticosa valley stands out for being one of the most beautiful valleys in the Pyrenees, with a breathtaking landscape and typical mountain villages. In summer, the Los Lagos cable car gives access to a network of marked high mountain trails that run between the lakes and viewpoints from which to enjoy spectacular views.
Panticosa has one of the historic spas in Spain. Located at the heart of the Huesca Pyrenees, at an altitude of 1,636 meters, the spa has two 4-star hotels, the Gran Hotel and the Hotel Continental, designed by the architect Rafael Moneo.
The Termas de Tiberio building has been designed by Belén Moneo and Jeff Brock and its 8,500 square meters of extension, are designed for relaxation and use of the healing water, seeking the well-being of the body and mind.
The Panticosa spa offers a wide range of gastronomic options, including the El Lago Restaurant, a unique space designed by Rafael Moneo and inaugurated in July 2003, which stands out for its large windows and a beautiful viewpoint overlooking the Ibón de Baños.
