Candanchú ski resort nestles in the heart of the Aragonese Pyrenees at the head of the Aragon River, next to Somport pass (nearby to the peak Zapatilla). Candanchú is considered to be the oldest and doubtless most prestigious ski resort in Spain.
Candanchú ski resort
Thus began the story of this resort and so too its excellent reputation, based on its experience and on the exceptional quality of its slopes. Names like “Tobazo”, “La Tuca” or “Tortiellas” are among the most demanding, attractive and exciting descents of Spanish skiing. As a general rule, almost all the pistes in Candanchú have a mythical status related to its skiing history. “La Tuca Blanca” crowns the resort at an altitude of 2400 metres, in the midst of abundant snow and unparalleled views.
The ski resort Astún is near the neighboring ski region Candanchú as well as the French border, has 42 km of pistes kilometers. Both stations are 3 km away and are connected by several buses, so you can forget about taking a car and enjoy them to the fullest. You can enjoy 2 resorts with the same skipass.
Perhaps, intermediate skiers are those who would least enjoy this station. It has some steep slopes and many off-piste areas catering for more expert skiers.
Almost all of Candanchú’s descents are mythical slopes, a shining example is the Tobazo. The Tuca Blanca, with its 2,400 meters, acts as the roof of the station. If you climb it, you will enjoy the spectacular landscape.
In addition to the skiing sports, Candanchu resort offers a multitude of activities. For example you can stroll through the village and do some window shopping in the shops of the resort. In the evening, it is the bars and restaurants of the resort that welcome you to taste the regional specialities.
