Unless you count belly-sliding down a mountain of fresh snow (and getting snow in all sorts of wrong places) a sport, I wouldn’t really consider myself an athletic snow person.
But athletic or not, the Sierra Nevada is the go-to place for frolicking about in Granada’s snowfall. Known for its choice of snow sports, spas, resorts, and family-friendly environment, the Sierra Nevada is a popular destination for many a European.
Except for maybe D-Man and me. We kind of like to get away from all of…this.
I adore walking through the main square and listening to different languages being spoken, breathing in the smell of croissants from the bakery, and hearing little kids squeal when their parents get them tiny, red sleds for the day – but there’s something nice about staying away from the hustle and bustle.
Avoiding the parking lots and ski slopes by a few kilometers, D-Man usually manages to find a safe spot to park in, and we run out of the car and make a beeline for the snowy woods, where we’re bound to find plenty of snow-covered hills waiting for us and the pup, whom we aren’t allowed to have in the center.
And so, we have our pet-friendly hikes and homemade lunches in quieter parts of the Sierra…
Where do you like to get away from the usual hustle and bustle? ;)
