STORY BY Patrick Thorne

Baqueira Beret ski resort in the Spanish Pyrenees will reach a total of 160km (100 miles) of piste with the opening of a new area to skiers and boarders this winter.

The new runs, covering around 2.27 hectares, will be created in the resort’s os Baciver area, close to the Saumet’s zone.

A new mile-long surface lift with as capacity of 800 people per hour will provide access to the new area.  The new lift will take the resort’s hourly uplift capacity to 61,024 people.

“It really is a beautiful area where the freeriding will be the main draw with lots of off piste areas to enjoy easy and safe free skiing,” said Commercial Director Xavi Ubeira.

Baqueira is also improving its snowmaking system and adding two new grooming machines to its fleet.

One of the biggest international events at the resort this winter will be a SnowBoard Cross World Cup on the 1st and 2nd of March with the best riders from around the world completing along with local heroes Spanish Bronze Olympic medal winner  Regino Fernandez together with Lucas Eiguibar, racing for the Spanish team.
