The village is set at 4,920 ft with the highest lifts: 8,530 ft. The ski season runs Dec to April with the NE-facing slopes of Pic Negre and Pic Alt de la Capa holding snow well. 18 mls of piste in immediate area comprising 3 green runs, 7 blue, 7 red and 4 black; 73 cannons provide artificial snow if needed. Ski-slopes are situated above the village, 4 mls away by steep mountain road; the ski-school is also here. Supervised kindergarten and nursery available for skiers with infants. The most direct route to the slopes is via the 1st-stage Cota chair-lift, ¼ ml from the village centre, which avoids a longer bus ride; this chair-lift is augmented by a fast, modern, more centrally situated gondola.
