With the whole area’s economy so reliant on the ski season, there are plenty of opportunities to try new activities in the evening too, the ever popular tubing and tobogganing for example.

Andorra has amazing facilities.

It now boasts state of the art technology throughout its ski lift system with 112 engines now providing the power to transport up to 156,000 skiers per hour up the slopes at peak times.

What’s more,nearly 1,500 snow cannons guarantee over half the slopes in Andorra are kept open for skiing.
