La Molina ski resort
La_Molina ski station near Barcelona. La Molina is a popular ski station in the Pre-Pyrenees mountains and one of the closest places for 1 day ski trips from Barcelona. La Molina is the oldest ski resort in Spain and installed the first commercial ski lift in 1943.

La Molina has a skiable terrain of 71 km and 66 ski runs; the maximum height difference is 2.445 m and the minimum 1.400 m. La Molina is in the Pre-pyrenees where there is less snowfall that in the Pyrenees.

The extensive network of snow making machines mean that La Molina is usually open in winter, but sometimes there might only be articifial snow on the tracks and little snow on surrounding areas.

La Molina is a ski station and not really a resort so there is no village or shops. It's very nice for 1 day skiing - you can get there by bus or train - scroll down for more information - or you can buy a day skibus pack which includes ski-pass.

If you prefer to go for 2 days of skiing you might have to book the bus/train separately and then buy the liftpass at the slopes.

La Molina is more of a ski station than a village resort so it is perhaps not the best choice for a full week of skiing because there are few afterski options

There are three hotels (scroll to bottom of page for hotel info) for short stays which makes La Molina perfect for 2 days ski trips from Barcelona.

The hotel next to the slopes is Hotel HG La Molina

La Molina sometimes hosts national and international World cup skiing and snowboarding races and events.
