Home to two excellent ski areas, one of which plays host to European and World Cup races, Andorra skiing holidays deliver more than you probably thought.
Beginners, improvers and families should head to the 63km of well-manicured slopes of Arinsal in the Vallnord ski area. It's a natural bowl with some steeper slopes, but mainly the runs funnel gently back to the ski base where you'll find bars, restaurants and even a crèche. The scenery is picturesque as the runs are tree-lined which also provides a safe learning environment for newbies.
The 210km Grandvalira ski area suits every ability level, wallet size and party type. There's everything from dedicated beginner and kiddie areas to large snow parks for freestyling and mile after mile of cruisy blue and red runs. There are challenging sections too. Head over to Grau Roig in between Soldeu, El Tarter and Pas de la Casa for some excellent freeriding.
Andorra has something to suit all levels but is particularly good for improvers and those who love scenic, cruisy skiing, excellent après and virtually tax-free prices!
