    There was heavy snow in Barcelona yesterday. Locals had never seen anything like it. Today back to the usual sunshine. The skiing just a couple of hours away in the Pyrenees will be spectacular. I might not be around for a few days…..

    Very pretty not if you are on holiday perhaps 😆 There has scarcely been a day without rain since mid-december on the CDS. A real blow for those in the service industry.

    I went skiing yesterday in the Pyrenees, less than 2 hours from Barcelona. Perfect conditions, boiling hot, hardly anyone around (Tuesday, economic crisis). It’s one of the joys of living in this part of the world; you have great skiing, lovely beaches, and the South of France all within about 2 hours drive.

    Barcelona today is warm and sunny. You’re right – the world is increasingly topsy-turvy.

    Anyway, some photos of La Masella yesterday.

    Thanks. Not exactly how most people imagine Spain though.

    Are Masella/Molina worth for a 1 week skiing? Do they have good ski schools for young children?

    When conditions are good they get a bit crowded at the weekends and during holidays because it’s so easy to get there from Barcelona.

    Great skiing for kids – it’s all so easy. As an adult 2 days would be enough. They are small resorts, after all. That said, you can always go to a different resort each day, including the ones in France. That way you might not get bored in 4-5 days.

    Don’t know about classes for kids, didn’t look into it this time. But I assume they do have them.

    Quite expensive though. 40 Euros for a day pass at La Masella. That’s on a par with Verbier.

    Stayed the night with a friend in a really excellent quality urbanisation….just across the border in France. The quality of the build was superb. In comparison your typical holiday home on the Spanish coast feels like it’s built out of tissue paper.
