All our instructors are appropriately qualified, contracted and experienced for ski and/or snowboard instruction.

New for the winter season of 2013-14 and after many requests made over past seasons, the British Ski Center is very pleased to offer you the opportunity of offering ski or snowboard tuition vouchers to your friends and family as a novel gift for whatever occasion it may be.

Our aim was not to set up just another ski school, but also to offer a more personalised service to our clients.

Sierra Nevada is a unique resort in that it has around 20 independent ski schools. The Spanish Ski School, (Escuela Española de Esqui), was the first to be established in 1962. Since then, individuals or groups of instructors have peeled away and set up for themselves.

Sierra Essence offers a personalised selection of accommodation options.  Since we live here and have developed excellent relationships with the accommodation agencies and hoteliers we can hand-pick the accommodation according to the specific requirements of our clients. 

Accommodation options in Sierra Nevada are essentially split between Self-Catering Apartments or Hotels / Hostels.


Our resort base is located in the equipment hire shop "Intersport Rio Sport" in the Plaza de Andalucia in the Sierra Nevada ski resort, just 20 metres from the entrance to the Al-Andalus Gondola. We can be found here every morning from when they open at 9am
