A new ski destination for WalkingWomen offering wonderful skiing opportunities in the stunning mountains of the small principality of Andorra, bordered by France and Spain. The holiday is suitable for beginners and intermediate skiers and offers a range of pistes to enjoy. We are based at Soldeu, right in the heart of the Grandvalira, the largest skiable area of the Pyrenees. The resort has a great range of slopes and an excellent ski school for beginners.
Our hotel is the small, family run Hotel de Roc San Miquel, which offers comfortable rooms, very welcoming hosts and a warm refuge at the end of each day. It is a small hotel and we hope to have exclusive use for our ski holiday. A varied breakfast and hearty dinner are included at our accommodation. Lunches are not included and will be taken at some of the many mountain refuges.
The Soldeu ski school has an excellent reputation for teaching beginners and those with some experience who want o improve their technique. There is a choice of group or private lessons and ski instructors speak English. The ski school is very good value at around 150 euros for 15 hours (3 hours per day over 5 day).

There are many convenient slopes to practice on once you have got the hang of it!
Grandvalira boasts 210 km of ski run spread over a total of 128 slopes of all different levels. With much recent investment in the ski infrastructure the resort, previously known as purely a beginners’ resort, is world class with a fantastic network of lifts and snow cannons to ensure that the slopes are accessible. In 2012 it was host to the Women’s Skiing World Cup and the trials for the 2012 and 2013 Speed Skiing World Cup – making Grandvalira one of the top resorts on an international scale.
Our stay here will make full use of the infrastructure in order to explore the surrounding slopes and the beautiful scenery. With plenty of fantastic pistes to choose from and awe-inspiring mountains we will enjoy the sense of freedom and exhilaration that skiing brings.
