Pradollano belongs to the municipality of Monachil. It was founded together with the ski resort of Sierra Nevada. The place was known by that name, since the lower part and origin of the town is a relatively flat area that contrasts with the high mountain slopes around you.
The construction of the station was initiated by the City of Granada in 1964. This Ski Area is the sunniest ski resort in Europe with over 80% of sunny days. The ski season is running from November to early May. There are in total 22 lifts, 126 pistes, with a total length of 106 km and a vertical drop of 1200 meter.
