Superb Start to Season

Snow on tree in El Tarter

The season has started with all areas open having good coverage since December 1st, however with more snow on the 4th and huge snowfall yesterday, the slopes have a huge base for the season as well as massive amounts of snow for the first major test of the season, the Purissima holiday weekend which sees a large number of Spanish tourists arrive to enjoy the skiing and snowboarding.

For most of the sectors in both Vallnord and Grandvalira the base is now at least a metre which sets up the season nicely.  The snow fell right to the resort levels and below, so everywhere is currently a picture postcard of winter wonderlands!

The temperature is set to stay low for the next couple of weeks at least which means the snow should stay in great condition plus the mountain operators will be able to keep the snow cannons working to keep everything topped up.  It’s been the best start to the season for a few years, so you should definitely think about getting booked up for a ski holiday to Andorra!
