Snowboarding must be done in certain specific areas in the Peñalara Massif.

SnowboardIt is becoming more frequent to use snowboards instead of skis to make descents. They are usually used in two manners, either just to glide or to make jumps and stunts. The danger of these practices or the risks they may cause to the rest of the users, makes it necessary to rule and reconcile all interests, granting safety at the same time. Therefore, practitioners are urged to tread carefully, avoiding aggressive forms that may cause accidents and conflicts with other visitors. Take special care in shady zones that can freeze, because control is much smaller.

Thus, current regulation only allows their use in the Special Areas of PORN (Puerto de Navacerrada and Valdesquí) and Transitional Zones, as well as in the Peñalara Massif and other areas under Peñalara PRUG provisions. Reservation is established only in Los Cotos Pass, in which there are specific enabled areas, due to the great number of visitors and danger which could result for other users, especially those who slide on sleds or take walks. In the whole area of Peñalara, jumps for acrobatic modalities are not permitted, except in the areas above mentioned and marked for that purpose.
