As part of a €25 million investment which was endorsed by the Department of Environment and Sustainability, Soldeu is opening a new 150,000 square foot ski platform at the base of the Avet slope. It will feature an underground car park with over 400 spaces. The Avet slope will play host to the finals of the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup which takes place in Soldeu 11-17 March 2019. This is a prestigious event which will benefit Soldeu immensely. The finals will also be significant for one of America’s most decorated female skiers, Lindsey Vonn who has announced that she will be retiring after the World Cup. This is just a small amount of work that has been completed in Andorra.
The photos we often see when we flick through travel websites selling ski holidays, is that of a professional skier, gliding through fresh powder snow. Although we may aspire to be like that, the reality is that no-one expects you to be the next Lindsey Vonn on your first day on the slopes. Most resorts today have brilliant ‘nursery slope’ facilities created for the sole purpose of gently easing you in to, potentially, your new favourite sport.
If you love spending time on the slopes but want to make your money stretch a little further, we have compiled this handy guide to skiing on a budget and getting more for your money.
