Baqueira is an urban complex situated at 1500 metres above sea level, with a population of 94 inhabitants permanently living there. It was created as the ski resort of Baqueira-Beret opened and the need for full services to the area arose. There is no hospital but there is an emergency and casualty unit for skiers. There are also some high quality restaurants.
Since its opening on December 6th 1964, Baqueira-Beret has become one of the best ski resorts in the Pyrenees and one with the best and most quantity of snow due to be facing North. According to this year’s figures (2011), it offers its visitors 120 kms. of sign-posted and prepared ski slopes, 14 kms. of itineraries, 7 kms. of cross-country track, snowpark, slalom stadium, 33 ski lifts and 546 artificial snow cannons. And they improve their facilities year after year.
According to ski experts, Baqueira-Beret has in the surrounding area some of the most sought-after off-piste skiing spaces. Many enthusiasts travel from all over Europe to enjoy this possibility and the after-ski services in Baqueira.
Apart from this off-piste space, there are two other large skiing areas. Firstly, Beret (at 2100 metres above sea level), which can be reached by a road that leaves the C-28 as we come out of the town centre. This area is recommended for ski beginners.
Secondly, the area called Bonaigua which is perfect for the ski experts. In order to be able to access this area of Baqueira-Beret we can go from Baqueira to the highest point of Bonaigua-Peülla, or go from the town called Esterri d’Àneu, on the other side of the mountain pass, if we are coming from Sort.
During the summer season Baqueira-Beret also offers great possibilities and facilities for those who want to enjoy the countryside, walking or on a bike.
Both, Baqueira as well as the housing developments of Val de Ruda and Baqueira 1700, have different types of accommodation, modern houses and apartments specially designed for you to enjoy a truly unforgettable winter holiday. If what you want is a proper skiing holiday, this is an exceptional place as it is so close to the ski resort of Baqueira-Beret.
