There were some time that we went to La Molina for a 1 day trip. But due to lot of work at our primary jobs, carnaval, school, kindergarten and some birthdays parties, we run out of the time almost all the days. And you know.. sometimes you just need few time of doing nothing, and when I say nothing, I really mean nothing xoxox.
As I mentioned previously, we went to La Molina for 1 day only. We went there with all grandparents, and it was a lot of fun. We had enough time to spend with kids, and half a day to enjoy the slopes. How do you like such a trip?
About La Molina.
La Molina is the perfect ski resort where you can have some fun and relax with fresh air. It is just a two hour trip from Barcelona to the Pre-Pyrenees mountains, it’s the perfect distance for a one-day ski trip or you could choose from a wide range of accommodation services all within walking distance from the ski slopes.
We haven’t even thought on staying there overnight, as we didn´t take any holidays, and enjoyed the time of a weekend.

As well you can drive by mountains, there are a lot of curves, even though, the views are so impressive. But, it takes a little bit longer to get to La Molina.
The cheapest way to get to La Molina will be by train or bus, which include a ski-pass as well. This may be a longer journey because there is many pick up points.

We are not professionals, and we always go to the Beginner Slopes. There you can find shops to hire ski equipment and take ski classes. The slopes are quieter and with a low difficulty.
If you are not into skiing?
If you go there for a fresh air escape, La Molina has different activities to accommodate everyone who don’t ski. There is a large snow park located in the area which offers an alternative to people who prefer not to hit the slopes.
It’s the perfect location for a family or group of friends to have some fun in the snow without skiing with activities like snow-grooming. Or better still you can chill out in Costa Rasa cafeteria, while enjoying the breath-taking views with a hot drink.
We enjoyed doing our snowman and playing with the real snow. It was pretty nice to play there. Only 2 days previously it was snowing there. All the ski resort was in white.
There is also an adventure park as well with zip-lines, Tarzan jumps and many more activities to keep you pumping and filled with adrenaline. The adventure and snow park is guaranteed keep you pumping and is suitable for all ages.
La Molina is definitely worth visiting if you’re living in Barcelona, or if you’re looking for a ski resort near Barcelona.
