Overall we had a perfect time at Vall de Núria- a 14 yr old and 8 yr old and two middle aged parents who had no idea how to ski. Everything was so easy, convenient and safe. Lessons on hand, ski instructors, lockers to store equipment, and a perfect idyllic location. We were lucky that it was really quite - mid feb, mid week and snow beginning to melt. It was just right for us. However the down side to being quite was limited dining options. The buffet became a bit of an inside joke! While we found our way around it, picking out the best ( pasta), there were some poor offerings! And it was the only option for us the captive audience. Deserts were fab and kids loved the buffet stuff your face option, wine was reasonable but food at times was limited. However staff were so lovely. Bar was perfect for thick hot chocolate and cards. And there were a few lovely communal rooms to hang out in. Location was magnificent and we all learnt how to ski! Big tip, bring breakfast options and things like milk, butter, eggs, pasta etc. No kettle in apartments but two jobs, microwave and stove cafeteria, dishwasher. Very limited and expensive shop but will make you fresh baguettes once ordered. Would really recommend it for those apprehensive about skiing for first time and we will go back!

A beautiful hotel/resort in the Pyrenees. We had a forward facing room with magnificent views of the mountain and ski slops. Nice restaurant and bar area however the bar area was a bit small when big groups are there and it is a bit tired. Would love to come here again with our children and grandchildren.

As a tourist whom came from hot country I've enjoyed watching the snow but... if you're not skiing no point to be there for more than 1-2 hours especially when it's cold and rainy.

Only 3 hours from Barcelona using Rodalies of Renfe to get to Ribes de Freser and then taking train cremallera. Loved it there! Dont miss the chance to visit it during Winter

This is a nice day trip from Barcelona. You will see many pictures and comments regarding the beautiful scenery. (And I agree wholeheartedly!) So, I decided to focus my review on the logistics. Be aware that it takes 2 hours & 40 minutes by train (including the rack rail). We took the Rodalies R3 line from Plaça de Catalunya to Ribes de Freser which has > 20 stops. We purchased a combined ticket which includes the Cremallera (rack rail) from the Rodalies office at P. de Catalunya. (See picture of train ticket.) At the ski lodge, you can pick up a trail map. The terrain is open and rocky, so we did not have an issue following the trail from Vall de Nuria to Queralbs (3 hour hike). There was a buffet at the ski lodge in case you want to eat lunch. It was just ok but convenient.
