Our base for ski trips is in the Val d’Aran which lies at the heart of the Catalan Pyrenees amongst the highest peaks of the range. Being in a maritime climate and nestled amongst 3000m peaks it has excellent snowfall and the resort often opens throughout April. Those new to skiing this region will note the relative ease to get around, great value mountain food and drink, Spanish cuisine and the tranquillity compared to the Alps.

The ski area of Baqueira Beret ranges over 3 distinct valleys, has abundant pine forest, cruisy blues, rollers and features all reminiscent of Courchevel or Courmayeur. It has over 165km of runs, 111 pistes, 1500m vertical drop, lifts between 1500 and 2610m, 36 lifts, several controlled freeride zones, a mogul wall, snow parks, in bounds ski touring routes and Nordic skiing. Heli-skiing is permitted in Spain and we can recommend some of the best guides for full or half day experiences. It is considered the best skiing in the Pyrenees.


We wanted to create a more contemporary mountain holiday of light, creative, international cuisine and organic ingredients in an outstanding yet relatively undiscovered location.


We serve modern European cuisine including exciting dishes from around the world and age old Basque and Catalan recipes.

Our vision for Mendi was formed partly as a response to the tired 80’s ski culture haunting Europe: heavy, fatty ‘traditional’ food, competitive macho vibes. We felt there was room for something new…
