One of the largest ski resorts in Spain, Masella sits on the Tosa d’Alp in the Pyrenees Mountains. With nearly 43 miles of ski runs, there are plenty of options for skiers of all levels to choose from among snow-capped mountains and pine forests. Its tracks and trails through the tall pine trees make the ski runs here particularly scenic. The raw natural feel of Masella makes it feel mostly unspoiled. For snowboarders, there is a natural halfpipe in the forests. Because of its north-facing location, Masella enjoys one of the longest ski seasons in the Pyrenees.
The resort overlooks the sunny valley of La Cerdaña, the lands just before Andorra and France, with views that only get better as one climbs (or rides the gondola) up the mountain.
Ski season generally runs from late November to early April. The resort is open daily from 9 am to 4 pm. A one day lift ticket costs 41 € for adults, 31 € for children. Coaches arrive direct from Barcelona, and for those who prefer to drive there are three car parks. A visit to Masella can be easily combined with neighboring La Molina, the oldest ski resort in Spain.
