There has been skiing at La Molina for almost 100years, the first pioneers taking to the slopes in 1908 and it ranks as the oldest in Spain. The resort has constantly progressed to remain at the forefront of Spanish skiing. In 1943 the first Spanish ski lift was installed and more recently the opening of the cable car in 1998 linking the resort with nearby La Masella created Alp 2500, an un-crowded, welcoming environment, under blue Catalan skies providing a combined ski area of 113km.
Suitable for beginners to experts alike there is a good mix within the 94 pistes to choose from and a well groomed snowpark. An excellent lift system services the slopes, in particular the Alp 2500 cable car in the centre which will take you from the car park in La Molina to the 2340m summit of Tosa d'Alp in just 8 minutes. Investment continues sympathetic to the surrounding environment and the resort is proud of its tourism and environmental awards.
In summer the resort makes the most of its wonderful setting surrounded by forests and natural parks. The Tosa cable car takes you quickly to the summit where a bird’s-eye view awaits. A 20 minute hike to the refuge hut Niu de l´Àliga 2537 metres serves up magnificent views of Pedraforca, the mountain range of Cadí, Montserrat, the summit of Carlit, the Puigpedrós and the mountain peaks of Puigmal and a lovely walk back down to the resort.
The Tosa lift also accommodates Mountain Bikes which can be hired in resort opening up a network of trails of differing difficulty to explore back down to La Molina.
There seems a limitless choice of things to do; archery, tennis, squash, football, basketball, badminton, volleyball, a choice of 2 swimming pools, quads, boats, pony-trekking for the little ones and children’s playground.
The museum is also worth a visit recounting the history of Spain’s oldest resort and the world of skiing.
