Snowboarding in Asturias
This ski Asturias snowboarding teaser was filmed mostly in Fuentes de Invierno and Pajares which are the two main ski resorts in Asturias and are found in the area of Montaña Central.
In Asturias there are two ski stations – Fuentes de Invierno in the council of Aller and Valgrande-Pajares in the council of Lena – promise exciting days of skiing, snowboarding, as well as good food in a cosy, family environment. They are ideal for families, and for those who want to get away from it all, eager to seek out tranquil, more relaxing destinations.
Fuentes de Invierno – The Last Glacier in the Cordillera
Located in the municipality of Aller, Fuentes de Invierno boasts the most up-to-date ski lifts of all stations in the Cordillera Cantábrica. It is the ideal resort for enjoying the white sport in tip-top conditions. The rugged mountain terrain, combined with small clusters of forest and cabins dotted across the lower reaches of the resort, make this diminutive skiable tract (8.7 km) one of the most picturesque spots in the Principality of Asturias.
Valgrande-Pajares, the Oldest of the Cantabrian Resorts
Inaugurated in 1954, the Lena resort of Valgrande-Pajares has had skiers on its pistes for over 60 years. It is considered one of the benchmark ski stations in the Cordillera Cantábrica. With a skiable tract of 21.5 km, it is strategically located at just over half an hour from several major cities (Oviedo, Gijón and León), and is equipped with snowmaking systems to guarantee hassle-free skiing throughout the season. The ski lifts that connect the whole resort start out from the base station (1,350 m), where all the main facilities are located.
We’ve been busy filming a guide to skiing and snowboarding in Asturias and we wanted to whet your appetite a little.
Big thanks to all the snowboarders who took our camera along for the ride : -D
There is a lot more to come but for now sit back, go full screen, turn it up and enjoy!
