Andorra opens for business

7th December 2009 Print

Initial snow fall over the weekend of 28th and 29th November has provided a good layer of snow with up to 40cm of snow on the high slopes and 20cm on the lower slopes of Andorra’s ski resorts.

With a further 10 to 15cm expected to fall in the next few days, clear blue skies and a low wind chill factor, forecast conditions are predicted to be perfect.

Andorra’s two ski regions are Vallnord and Grandvalira. Grandvalira incorporates the resorts of Soldeu, El Tarter, Pas de la Casa/Grau Roig, Encamp, and Canillo. Vallnord takes in the popular areas of Arinsal, Pal and Arcalis. Andorra is known for its recent infrastructure developments which have improved lift service connecting most of the individual resorts, quality of accommodation and ski school standards. Positioning itself as a value for money destination offering unrivalled ski tutoring combined with excellent beginners and intermediate runs, the resort is ideal for British families as the ski schools boast the largest number of British instructors for any European resort.

The UK’s main tour operators to Andorra, Neilson, Inghams and Crystal, start their season on the 20th December (Neilson) and 13th December (Inghams and Crystal) respectively.
