Andorra is incredible. It has some of the best pistes in Europe. The ski area is huge. Andorras biggest dump of the year is in March. Every year, without fail. When you come to Snowboxx, you’ll get some incredible skiing, on fresh powder. And a tan.
And for this week, Snowboxx will have the resort to itself. Experts will love the competition level slopes (Andorra was home to the Alpine Ski world cup in 2012), famed off piste and untouched, perfectly crafted freestyle parks. Intermediates should check out Arcalis, which has by far the best skiing in the Pyrenees. And beginners - fear not, Arinsal is perfect for you. The ski lessons are less than half the price of the French ones and the instructors are a hell of a lot better. And not French.
Along with this and the distinct lack of gendarmerie, skiing and boarding in Andorra has many other advantages over France, Switzerland and Austria:
2. Ridiculously cheap alcohol. Whats that, you paid €7 your a pint in Val Thorens? Try €1 a pint. And our favourite deal so far, £21 (€27) for a 1.5 litre bottle of Grey Goose.
3. The food is better. Andorra is big on its steak, and you’ll find plenty of steak houses in the resort. Nothing better after a days skiing! And we also have incredible Fondue. You won’t break the bank on food either,even meals up the mountain start at €4 (£3.20).
4. The atmosphere is second to none. Remember, Ibiza on Ice. The locals and seasonnaires love the English, and they also love a drink. Snowboxx will bring hundreds of likeminded party people, which will all create one awesome cocktail.
We’ll see you on the mountain!
