/ Andorra Advice
What do people know about the country or more significantly likely snow conditions in early February?
The selection of pistes looks good. Youre thoughts would be appreciated!
I seem to remember having a good time - particularly watching the beginners with brandies (large) and coffee for breakfast.
I stayed for a week in early jan a few years back. We stayed in Arinsal and had the Vallnord ski pass which covers you for 3 areas i think. The 3 resorts had easily enough to keep us occupied for a week (i'd say im intermediate ish, boarding red routes and skiing blacks). The slopes were'nt too busy either, nor were the lifts (no queuing at all)
The snow was fine, bit icy in the odd place but generally just the steep bits, and all the runs were open. Apres ski was good, decent food, and enough bars and clubs to keep you entertained. We stayed with a company called Hola-Andorra, very nice apartment and a 5 min walk from the main lift. Its also not too hard to get to from barcelona airport (we hired a car there, but i think you can get transfers easily enough if youre not doing a package)
I've got no complaints about the holiday whatsoever.
Have been t Andorra a couple of times arinsal/pal was great for beginners and soldeu which is great if you like more of a challenge the apre was good in both resorts although we went late march to soldeu and was skiing in 24 degrees so as you can imagine ice in the morning and slush in the afternoon.
if you can afford to book late its worth it to check the snow
all in all i would reccomend either resort
Thanks for the info folks
