What's Skiing Like in Andorra?
Andorra provides a skiing experience like no other in the world. The Pyrenean mountains have their own separate landscape and culture to the Alps, but with France to the North and Spain to the South, there are still many familiarities. One significant difference is that many of the resorts still have individual charms and there are many local Andorran mountain villages which have maintained their authenticity.
Having the influence of Spain and especially the Catalan food and culture is a bonus. Think a cold glass of Sangria and delicious assorted Tapas at lunch, rather than your usual vin chaud and fondue; a pleasant change.
Andorra’s skiing is definitely not to be scoffed at. With more than 60 peaks and 2,500m of altitude, Andorra is the ideal winter sports area for all to enjoy. Andorra’s main ski resorts are linked, with Soldeu, El Tarter and Pas de La Casa making up the major resorts of the large Grandvalira area. With lots of lovely tree-lined, gentle slopes as well as steeper runs and plenty of off-piste there is an abundancy of skiing and boarding for all abilities. Its cruisy, uncrowded nature also makes Andorra the perfect country choice for beginners.
