Skiing in Andorra
Andorra has changed and we like what they have done. For many years it was seen a less distinguished relative of the Alpine regions but after a €112 million facelift it’s not anymore! In fact it is the perfect destination for school ski trips.
Nestled in the Pyrenees between France and Spain, and taking influences from both, Andorra is in a privileged spot.
Despite its diminutive size, as far as the skiing in Andorra is concerned it packs a big punch. Grandvalira, which includes Soldeu and Pas de la Casa has over 200kms of piste across 112 lifts. And it is across these slopes that the huge investment can be felt with new chairlifts, gondolas and mountain restaurants.
So what is the skiing like?
The skiing in Andorra is another big reason why we feel Andorra has become an ideal destination for school ski trips. For beginners and less confident skiers, and boarders, there are long sweeping slopes with plenty of blue runs. The intermediate areas are extensive but are more of a challenge and of course there is plenty of room to keep thrill seeking experts amused. The split is;
- 15% Green
- 38% Blue
- 28% Red
- 19% Black
