Beginners will find plenty of opportunities to get their skiing career started in this resort. Nursery slopes and gentle blue-runs are commonplace at the bottom of both sides of the mountain that Yllas encompasses. Intermediate-level skiing is perhaps the most common in the area due to the majority of runs being of the challenging red variety. There are even some exciting off-piste routes for the more confident intermediate skier. For advanced skiers, there are only a few black runs in the resort but plenty of cross-country routes to get stuck into as well.
Yllas offers guests a solid selection of accommodation options to choose from. Some of the most popular options include family-friendly half-board hotels, self-catered apartments and cosy log cabins. The majority of restaurants (and even nightclubs) are situated inside of the larger hotels themselves but if you do fancy grabbing something to eat while you are out on the slopes, there are plenty of opportunities to do so in one of the region’s many mountain huts.
