Shared transfers are the most cost-effective way from getting from the airport to your resort, and with regular services running from Barcelona (seven times daily) and Toulouse (three times daily) it’s a great solution to get to the slopes when on an independent holiday. Matching your transfer to your flight time is important, so we have compiled some of our most commonly answered questions. (more…)

If there’s one way to work up an appetite, it’s by hitting the slopes and exploring Grandvalira’s 210 kilometres of pisted runs. And it’s not just snowy slopes that’s on offer in Grandvalira – our “lift pass & lunch” offer includes lunch on the mountain, allowing you to save money, budget for your holiday, and make sure that your children can look after themselves if you’re skiing separately.

Nowadays we are fully connected and there is hardly a second that we are separated from our phones, not even when sleeping. Therefore, when we head to the mountain, apart from taking our goggles, gloves and helmet, there is a must, the mobile phone! It could be uncomfortable, but everyone is skiing with their phone in their pocket, either for security reasons, to contact friends or just to take a snowy selfie. Technology is a major part of our lives, but without a doubt, the mobile is the winner, that’s why apps have been gaining importance day by day (supposedly) making life easier.
If you are going on a ski holiday this season, these are the apps you should have on your phone to help you enjoy the snow to the fullest!
Christmas is just around the corner, and thanks to the recent snowfall in Grandvalira and Vallnord, we’re feeling more Christmassy every day! If you’re heading out to resort soon and you’re not sure what to do, don’t panic – in this blog, we’ve got Christmas activities in Andorra all wrapped up!
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.

After a period of much uncertainty it has been announced today that the Grandvalira brand and ski area will continue indefinitely, which is fantastic news for visitors to Andorra. Not only that, but the area covered by the Grandvalira lift pass is expanding to also cover Arcalis. This means the linked ski area of Grandvalira will still be 210km but with the addition of Arcalis it becomes 240km of slopes covered by the pass. (more…)
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.
