Snow overview for Andorra
Thursday 23 March 2017

It was snowing lightly in both Grandvalira and Vallnord on the morning of Thursday 23rd of March, with around 2cm recorded. A dusting then, but it’s certainly welcome. Conditions have been variable but quite difficult in places recently. Slopes have tended to be quite hard at the top of the mountains and pretty slushy at the bottom as the days went on. Today, slopes should be fresher, but will nonetheless soften up fast.

I visited Arcalis on 12/01/2017 as a cheap "away day" from El Tarter and the delights of the extensive Grandvalira slopes:- It was the sunniest day of the week!
The place is pretty gorgeous really!
There's not that much skiing though and a day will exhaust most options for most people!
The L'abarsetar chairlift is painfully slow; 13 minutes for not a massive elevation change. A shame because the blue and red pistes from there are good fun.
Sadly the Creussans lift was not running on the day and word is that it doesn't open too often.
That's a pity because a bit more options would not go amiss.
The other chair lifts are speedy enough and there are a few Poma tows which I avoided.
The red runs have some steep pitches in them but some of the blues and greens are rather flat and a bit of an arm work out with poling/skating. Not boarder friendly and there is even a slightly down hill rope tow to assist on one piste!
There are enough café/food facilities unless the place is jammed but it was mid-week and quiet when I visited.
It would be good for some off-piste with sufficient snow but then so would many areas.
A lovely wee day out but as a "one off" only.
