If you’re unsure of where to ski this winter, then Soldeu should definitely be on your list. Part of the Grandvalira ski area offering 210km of linked slopes, the village of Soldeu has an excellent range of good quality accommodation as well as a fantastic spa and lively après ski bars, all the ingredients for an excellent ski holiday.
Grandvalira boasts an impressive 210km of pistes spread over the sectors of Pas de la Casa, Grau Roig, Soldeu, El Tarter, Canillo and Encamp. Even the most active of snow-sports lovers would find it difficult to get bored during a stay there, but on top of this they have a wealth of other activities that you can enjoy if whether you are a non-skier looking for an alternative or you love to try new things, we’ve compiled some information on the great activities that they offer.
When you think of your typical ski holiday, you don’t tend to think that you can stay in an igloo sculpted from ice… but in Grau Roig in the Grandvalira ski area you can do exactly that! Towards the end of last winter Sofia and Ella from the Andorra Resorts team were lucky enough to experience this for themselves with a visit to the Iglu Hotel. (more…)

Today we had a team outing to go dog sledding in El Tarter, one of the fantastic apres ski activities you can enjoy when you visit Grandvalira. After arriving at the top of the Tarter Gondola we could already hear the barking of the dogs in the distance, with a five minute walk across the snow we could see the excitable dogs getting ready to whisk their next customers off around their track.

Recent heavy snowfall means Andorra has been able to get ready to open over the past few days, and today the slopes are now open!! It’s the moment we’ve been eagerly anticipating since April, but today slopes have opened in the Arcalis sector of Vallnord, then over in Grandvalira the sectors of Pas de la Casa, Grau Roig and Soldeu have slopes open (although not yet linked together).
More snow is on the forecast in the coming days so the technical teams will work hard to open as many slopes as possible as soon as they can.
Andorra has great snow right now with three weeks left of this superb season, and to make things even better the lift passes have been reduced in price for April!
