Snow overview for Andorra
Monday 08 February 2016

It was a predominately sunny start to the week across much of Andorra, with only the occasional cloudy spell on Monday 8th February. Improving conditions are prevalent across many of our featured resorts after 5-10cm of fresh snow fell over the course of Sunday. Soldeu (35/60cm) saw the best of the current snowfall, with 10cm dramatically improving the conditions both on and off the piste. The best skiing can currently be found on the well-groomed runs of the upper mountain, with resorts runs becoming soft due to temperatures of around +6C on the lower mountain.

Conditions across all resorts are set to see further improvement, with light snow forecast to fall over the entire week ahead. Around 20-25 cm of fresh snow is expected to fall across all resorts before the weekend. Temperatures will fall over the coming days, with lows of around -4C on Wednesday.

Visited: February 2012

Feb half term 2012. Last minute and anxiety filled trip to Andorra with 2 boys aged 7 and 10.

The gem of the week was skiing in Arcalis- which is 1 hour on th ebus from Arinsal- but just a bit like a mini version of Whistler. I could happily ski nowhere else. Only a few lifts but fast and long. Lots f interesting easily accessible off-piste and a err-ride area. Great ski school facilities fr lids and great value food.

No accommodation at the base station.
