Baqueira/Beret (Catalonia) has kilometers of fun and a new high rating for the 2018-2019 season

Next winter, the resort of Val d’Aran and Valls d’Àneu will offer up to 165 km of routes (160 km marked and 5 km of off-piste) to skiers and snowboarders thanks to the creation of the new Baciver zone, which is added to the legendary Baqueira, Beret and Bonaigua areas. In addition, the highest point of the station is now Cape Baciver at an altitude of 2610 m.

NEW ASCENT AND BACIVER AREA

It’s no wonder that Baciver’s Tuc, the mythical mountain that towers over Beret and Orri, will give its name to the new ski area on the east side next season. This is due to the installation of the ski lift that takes its name from this peak and which joins to the Cap de Baciver, a summit near the Tuc. This area is for experts and offers five new red runs.

Thanks to the Baciver ski lift, the station also gains 100 m in altitude, reaches its highest point at 2,610 m altitude, at Cape Baciver and offers dizzying descents of more than 1,100 m, to the base at Baqueira 1500. The 1.7 km long ski lift with an elevation of more than 400 m offers breathtaking views of the north face and even the exceptional Escornacrabes route.

Among the five new trails, all red and therefore difficult, the Baciver slope it a highlight, with a vertical drop of 405 m, a length of more than 2 km and an average slope of 19%. Not to mention the Ta Tq Baciver track, which with its slope of 21% is the most pronounced and the most difficult of Estanholets, which is characterized by its elevation of 150 m. The other two routes in this area are “Orqueta” and “Roca Blanca”.
