Ski the Spanish waySierra Nevada, Spain

When you hit slopes around the world you expect vistas daubed in snow, but the pistes of Sierra Nevada boast panoramas far more unusual – the shimmering expanse of the Mediterranean Sea. Andalucían rays beam down on Europe’s southernmost ski slopes most days of the year, making it the ideal place to go if you’re torn between sun and snow.

As the ski season slips into spring, the days get warmer and the sparkling blue begs you to swap your boots and poles for togs and a towel. Make for the shore, known as Costa Tropica, just 100 kilometres away.
