Skiing near Barcelona

With winter knocking on the door i can't help but get excited for the skiing/snowboarding season ahead of us! One of the major attraction of Barcelona to me has always been that while you're right on the beach you can be in the mountains, ski-ready in a matter of hours, you can even do daytrips if you want to!

After some research i came up with the following list of ski resorts to check out:

Within 2 hours of Barcelona

- La Molina

- Masella

- Port del Comte

- Vall de Nuria

Within 2,5 hours of Barcelona  (all in Andorra)

- Canillo

- Encamp

- Ordino - Arcalis

- Pal - Arinsal

- Pas de la Casa

- Soldeu el Tarter

Within 3 hours of Barcelona

- La Massana (Andorra)

Have you tried any of them? Any (other) recommendations???

If you're in the city don't miss the Barcelona Snow show on the 7th of November!

One of my new year resolution for 2010 is: learn to snowboard!

(oh i did have one attempt years ago, which ended with me being alone in a forest covered with snow, waiting for the rescue team... rental snowboard lost forever... well, that's a story for another day :)
