The main ski resorts are Soldeu and Pas de la Casa, which share the fairly extensive Grandvalira ski area, as well as Arinsal which is linked with Pal as part of the Vallnord ski area. These resorts are covered in more detail in their own sections on the site.
Also in Vallnord is Arcalis, tucked away at the head of a long valley with no accommodation at its base. For non-beginners, it makes a worthwhile day trip, particularly from Arinsal and Pal, with which it shares a lift pass. The terrain is varied and scenic, the slopes usually deserted except at weekends, and the snow is usually the best in Andorra. There is excellent intermediate and beginner terrain including lots of off-piste.
The capital, Andorra la Vella, is choked by traffic, but worth a visit for its duty-free shopping and the splendid Caldea spa at Escaldes-Engordany, just outside the centre, with a fantastic array of pools, baths and treatments.
