When I was little, I used to go with my family to Candanchu to ski during the weekend. This famous ski resort is the oldest in Spain. It is only one kilometre from the French border, and it has 54 slopes and an international cross-country ski circuit. We stayed in an apartment there that had the ski pass included, and they also gave us an additional discount for booking in advance. What good memories I have of this place! It's a ski lover's paradise!

Getting that for you now...
