The Ski Resort
Cerler is located in the Pyrenees in the province of Huesca and is part of the Aramon group together with Formigal-Panticosa. The ski area extends above the village of the same name, which is one of the highest in the Pyrenees (1500 m). The breathtaking mountain scenery makes a skiing holiday in Cerler a real experience: in the immediate vicinity are the highest mountains in the Pyrenees, such as Anteo (3404 m), Monte Perdido (3355 m) or Pico Posets (3371).
Cerler offers a total of 81 kilometres of pistes of all levels of difficulty. There are two entry points to the ski area, either in Cerler or in Ampriu (1900 m), which is a little higher still. Both areas offer beginner terrain with easy slopes and drag lifts for practice. For young skiers, there are also two children's areas, Jardín de Nieve de Ampriu and Jardín de Nieve El Molino, located at the valley stations in the entry points. Here you can not only practice skiing and snowboarding, but also just romp around in the snow. 35 kilometres of pistes are marked in blue, so that even less experienced skiers can easily find their way around the ski area. The blue pistes can be found throughout the ski area, but the entrance in Ampriu is particularly recommended. This way, you can immediately conquer the enjoyable slopes at the Batisielles and Basibé lifts.
More experienced skiers will find a wide range of great slopes in Cerler, set in a unique mountain environment. Whether on the Rincón de Cielo (2322 m), the Pico Cerler (2407), the Gallinero (2728 m) or the Cogulla (2387) - the mountain peaks of the skiing area all offer great and above all varied downhill runs. Highlights are the slalom run Farnuserals or the snowspeed run at the Skity Area de Puentet. The Cogulla and Rincón del Cielo lifts also take brave winter sports enthusiasts to a mogul slope. You can also race on the Bordercross course at the Basibé slope.
Lovers of black runs will find what they are looking for at the highest peak of the ski area, the Gallinero (2728 m). There are also some black marked slopes at the Basibé lift.

It is located in the Zona Cota 2000. As the name suggests, the Salchichen is all about the sausage ("Salchicha"). The perfect (sausage) snack for the slopes can also be found in the Zona Cota 2000.
The Pizzeria El Bosque right next to the snowpark offers delicious pizzas and a breathtaking view of the Aneto. Perfect burgers, on the other hand, can be found at Burguer Colladeta. The Spanish version of the American delicacy is not to be missed. In Ampriu, the Barbacoa Ampriu is one of the most popular mountain restaurants. On the large terrace you can let the sun shine on your face and enjoy the delicious grilled dishes.
If you dare, you should definitely try the black marked slope "Marmotas" at the Gallinero. La Canal and Canal Amplia also provide a challenge. For those who prefer to enjoy themselves, the La Solana and La Rabosa slopes are a must.
Besides skiing, there are all kinds of other exciting things to try in Cerler. A dog sled ride is a very special experience and is a great way to explore the snowy mountains. This adventure is offered in Ampriu at 10:30 and 15:30 each day. Even faster is the ride on a snowmobile. On the 7 km long track, PS fans can really let off steam. The only condition is the minimum age of 14 years. Real adrenaline junkies, however, are drawn to the new sport of speedriding. The combination of skiing and paragliding provides the extra kick.
Après-Ski and Nightlife
One thing is for sure: Spaniards like to party for a long time! That's why après ski should not be missing. In the Cafeteria Remásacaro there is live music every day from 15:30.

Here you can enjoy a beer in the deckchairs and let the ski day come to an end.
