Tenerife Ski Resort?

Teide Ski Resort

There are many sports you can practice in Tenerife, like walking or golf, or any number of water sports. It is also true that Mount Teide can be covered in snow frequently throughout the year, but one thing you can not do here is to ski. Or can you?

This site, Teide Ski, which, actually, has been in operation since 2002, but has just come in for a bit of attention from the press would have you imagine otherwise.

The site, which claims there are "7 lifts, 10 runs (15 km of slopes) 2 green, 3 blue, 4 red, 1 black", is, of course, a joke and produced, probably just as a publicity and marketing stunt, by Nevasport.com, which is a genuine Spanish ski portal. The even funnier thing is that, of all the 2,500 ski resorts they list, the one which gets the most online visitors is the Teide Ski Resort, even though, in reality, it does not exist! Personally, I love their little camel logo with a woolly hat and snow on his back, but I wonder how many people have driven up Teide following their maps, looking for the resort in the "Orotava Land"?

All events are liable to change beyond our control.
