On Monday 22nd April we’ll be hitting the slopes for the last time this season. After that, we’ll sadly have a long, agonising wait until Grandvalira reopens in December. Here is a round up of the 2018/19 season and all the fantastic events that took place.

Booking your ski holiday can be stressful, but Andorra Resorts make booking your ski extras and transfers simple. If you are looking for a flexible ski holiday then booking independently has its benefits. Package holidays offer little to no flexibility in terms of dates and flight times, but choosing your own duration and flights means you can stay for as long as you like.
Half-term holidays are nearly here! Half-term is traditionally one of the busiest weeks of the season with hundreds of families choosing to spend their well-earnt break on the snowy slopes of Grandvalira and Vallnord. There’s no need to stress, we’re here to tell you everything you need to know so that your holiday is memorable for all the right reasons. (more…)
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.
Planning an independent holiday is the best way to ensure you get exactly what you want from your holiday. At Andorra Resorts, we have 10+ years experience in helping people plan, book and ski fully flexible trips to Andorra so we have found some fantastic holiday deals to share with you. As all the components are booked seperately, every part can be swapped out and replaced for something more suitable if needed! If you want help planning your next independant stay, just get in touch.
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.
