Astún Ski Resort

11 reviews of Astún Ski Resort

A medium size station but still cozy

Astún is a ski station situated in the middle of the Aragon Pyrenees, just next to the frontier with France. Actually, the diversion for Astún is on the same old pass (not the tunnel) to Somport, from where you take right turn arriving in a couple of kilometres at the ski station car park.

It’s 4-5 Kilometres from the veteran ski station of Candanchú, with which it has been possible to share the package or access ticket to the pistes for several years. It’s a medium size station, with 40 Km of pistes, and normally, there is usually very good snow since the lowest snow line is at more than 1700 metres of altitude.

Astún, my best memories

Astún is the ski station where I began when I was ten years old in this world of skiing, which one day became my profession (now thwarted); well, that’s another story.

Where was I… ah, yes, it is a small station with a unique town centre which has various restaurants, bars and shops and rental shops. The same way, it has two ski schools, a snow park and a hotel (the Europa).

Speaking of pistes, it has a very good distribution, which has been improved over the years, although since the mountain is willful you need good snow falls to enjoy them. Bearing in mind that there is snow, we’ll find ourselves with an extension of about 70 Km more or less, of which I recommend the pistes of Sarrios and Truchas, although for the most adventurous the track that descends from La Raca to Puente del Ruso stands out, in the vicinity of Candanchú. In spite of its risk, it offers one of the best slopes, snow and views of the zone (no offence to "El Tubo de la Zapatilla" in Candanchú).
