Amazing time here! worth the 4 hour drive from barcelona! We are expert skiers and found fantastic powder runs! Some steep runs. There is something for everyone here! I had a hard time finding bumps but otherwise a great hidden secret in the pyrenees. Snowed while we were here so we had the fresh experience. Cute little ski town. Everything wraps up on sundays early so get your shopping done early. ... Full Review

This is a lively and budget-priced purpose-built village with wide sunny slopes. Originally a particularly good beginners choice as at 2000m the gondola-accessed nursery area is unusually snow-sure, but a huge expansion over the past few years has widened Formigal’s appeal. In 2003 Formigal opened the first eight-seat chairlift in Spain and in the Pyrenees (including Andorra and the French Pyrenees region). The lift replaced an old gondola lift. Spain was the fourth European country to install an eight seater chair, following the world's first in Norway, five years ago. Perisher Blue in Australia is believed to be the only resort outside Europe to operate such a lift. In 2003 Formigal also opening two new high speed quads in a new ski sector Le Pourtalet. For the 2004-5 season it opened more new lifts than any other resort in the world with seven new lifts in total. Two six seaters chairs and two magic carpet lifts were added. Uplift went up by a third to 34,000 skiers per hour, with a handful of surface lifts replaced, along with one of the world's rapidly diminishing count of old single chair lifts and an old triple chair. 30 hectares of new terrain was opened up by the new lifts in the Portalet sector, including 11km (6 miles) of new blue and red category runs. Total ski run length increased to 68km (43 miles) and snowmaking was expanded too across the area with 212 new snow guns. ... Full Review
