Opinions about Sierra Nevada Ski Passes
Stay in the AlpesCompared to the Alpes it is expensive. Sadly we came high season, with line-ups. Thought it would be better priced. Stay in the Alpes (Robert).
What a shame, nice knowing you... AdiósWhat a shame, prices were expensive, now excessive. As a resident of Granada I've been coming to the Sierra regularly for 7 years, but no more. Miserable waiters brimming with "mala folla" and crap apre-ski makes the cost even more unbearable. Nice knowing you, Sierra. Adiós.
Come to Granada but not to skiDon't come to Granada to ski. The price of the forfaits are insulting for what is less than an average ski resort. The apri-ski is practically non existent, and the waiters in the restaurants (selling crap food at equally exhorbitant prices) give the impression that they hate you.
Come to Granada by all means, it's a lovely city with loads of rustic charm, but ski elsewhere. Madrid is a better option. Sorry Granada, but your lust for profit is killing this resort.
This saving should be passed on to the skiersI purchased a 4 day ski pass on February 1st at a senior rate as I am 69 years old. My querie is why should we pay so much money when there are less than half the lifts open.
I am guessing that the reason for this is that as there are less people in the resort due to the lack of snow, the resort is saving money by closing down over 13 lifts.
I feel this saving should be passed on to the skiers with a reduction on their lift passes and then be given a refund accordingly.
I am returning to Sierra Nevada the second week in March. I welcome your views. Thank you (Alan).
