TOP and best ski resorts in Europe: Andorra

Andorra winter resorts – maximum density of ski lifts per square meter in the world with the capacity of 160 000 people per hour

According to the World Ski Awards – Andorra’s ski resorts are in the TOP 1o ski resorts in the world. During 2016-2017 Andorra took 13th place in the world ranking for number of skier visits, a ranking created by the Swiss consultancy Laurent Vanat.

Andorra has strong ties with the skiing world. The Principality is one of Europe’s most important destinations and skiing is a basic cornerstone of the country’s economy.

This relationship between Andorra and FIS SKI (International SKI Federation) began in 1957 with the inauguration of the Pas de la Casa-Grau Roig ski resort, the first one in the country.

Andorra is the sunniest winter ski resort in Europe. The season here starts in December and lasts until mid-April. During winter nights the temperature is usually below zero, and in the daytime rises up to + 10C. The depth of snow cover varies from 50 to 300 cm. The peculiarity of the Andorran winter is that you can come across snow in the mountains and at the same time blooming flowers in the capital Andorra la Vella, which is located within a 10-minute drive.

Grandvalira and Vallnord (the second of the largest ski resorts in Andorra) have 182 ski slopes at their disposal as well as several zones for other winter sports and extreme activities. Thus, winter holidays in Andorra offer a wide range of skiing options for diversified guests: from beginners to the most experienced skiers.
