Formigal has 137 km (85 mi) of marked pistes. The highest point is Tres Hombres peak at 2,250 m (7,380 ft) above sea level, with a vertical drop of 740 m (2,430 ft); the majority of its slopes face north and northeast.
The base of the resort is a purpose-built town which includes several hotels and apartments at 1,500 m (4,920 ft). From there an 8-seat chairlift provides the main access for the resort. Prior to 2004 this access was provided by a gondola, informally called "El huevo" (The egg) by its users. The resort itself occupies four different high mountain valleys, defining three sectors: Tres Hombres (Crestas), Izas, Anayet and El Portalet. Each valley is accessible by car and a bus service, with a parking and service area at its base from where the chair lifts depart.
Most of the resort's 21 lifts are modern and of high capacity:
- 1 eight-seat chairlift
- 4 six-seat chairlifts
- 5 four-seat chairlifts
- 1 two-seat chairlift
- 5 button lifts
- 5 magic carpet lifts
The resort offers a variety of terrain on 97 pistes:
- - 7 beginner
- - 19 easy
- - 33 intermediate
- - 38 expert
