Winter… A time of festivities, wrapping up warm and enjoying walks in the crisp air. But, that’s not all that these cold months are about, with many of us opting to head for the mountains to really appreciate what the season can have in store. Between November and April, the snow-capped peaks come alive as thousands of skiers and boarders hit the slopes for some adrenaline-fueled action and why shouldn’t you join them? Whether you’re a complete beginner who has never even stepped foot on skis before or you’re an avid boarder who rides the powder every year, the mountains await you.

If you don’t want to venture too far from the UK, skiing in Andorra is a fantastic way of spending a week or two honing your skills. Nestled in the Pyrenees, that separates France from Spain, the municipality of Andorra has skiing facilities to suit every proficiency, while booking your break with Neilson means you won’t overstretch your budget either. Take a look at these popular resorts to help you decide where to head this winter.
Soldeu and El Tartar
With a great selection of groomed pistes and off-piste powder, Soldeu and El Tartar are well suited to all capabilities. Whether you’re after a more lively experience in Soldeu or prefer to enjoy the quiet life in El Tartar, you can benefit from some superb accommodation and access to the Grandvalira ski area, offering 205km of pisted runs.
Perfect for beginners, with a wide range of green and blue slopes available, and award-winning English speaking ski schools that will help build your confidence on the slopes. Recent investments have improved accessibility across the mountain, with Pal and the Vallnord ski area just a short ride away.
Pas de la Casa
Sun, snow and superb après ski facilities – what else could you ask for from a ski holiday? It’s the highest Andorran resort and, as such, boasts excellent snow records. The nightlife is one of the major highlights, offering an unrivaled experience, while the runs available are awesome across the board.
