Many agents and media attended the event in order to learn about the ski and snow product and green tourism of Granada. It started with a brief general presentation of Andalusia, followed by another focused on Sierra Nevada. There was also a presentation about an agreement between this institution and Cetursa, by which the students will be able to get special tourist packages for skiing or snowing in this area of Granada.

Sierra Nevada is Europe’s southernmost ski resort, with the largest number of sunny days. It offers more than 100km of slopes, suitable for skiing, the latest facilities and one of the biggest snow parks in Europe.
