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.
We know that you are already counting down the days to get to the slopes. However, we must be aware that skiing is a very active sport, and that means it requires physical fitness. That’s why we recommend you starting NOW your pre-season training if you want to get the most out of your ski holiday, avoiding unnecessary injuries and pains.
As in any sport, the physical condition is extremely important for skiing, because even if you have a perfect technique it won’t do you any good if your body is not prepared to execute it. Definitely, the legs are the part of the body that works the hardest, but we must not forget the importance of arms, abdomen and back, which makes skiing one of the most complete sports. Here you have a weekly workout schedule to help you get ready to hit the slopes this winter! (more…)

So it’s a great idea to mix your holiday up a little and spend some time away from the slopes to relax, recover and have some fun!
