High Pyrenees Skiing, Spain

Forming a natural border between Spain and France, the high Pyrenees mountain range is one of the most beautiful regions of Europe and the best place in Spain for a serious winter ski holiday by car hire.  Over 200 of the mountain summits in the Pyrenees reach taller than 2,000 meters, with the highest being Pico d'Aneto on the Spanish side.  Both sides of the Pyrenees have wonderful ski resorts, totaling around 40 different resorts between France, Andora and Spain, with at least 16 to choose from in Spain alone.
