We are looking at booking a skiing trip to Soldeu next Christmas. Can anyone advise on the snow conditions at this time of year?
It varies year to year - usually there's a decent amount of snow but normally not 100% of slopes open by Christmas. Andorra has had an excellent snow record in recent years with some of the best European snow conditions at Christmas.
You can see a few photos from December 23rd and 27th (as well as the rest of the month) in our December 2016 album here. The season usually starts the last weekend of November so by the time Christmas comes around we'd already expect to have been skiing for a few weeks.
Thank you Steve.
How busy does it get at Christmas, and does the ski school run on Christmas Day?
Christmas is quite busy, but not as busy as New Year, which in turn isn't as busy at February half term, so it's usually a good week in terms of space on the slopes.
Everything runs as normal on Christmas Day (weather permitting) so lifts, ski school, hire shops, bars, restaurants... all as normal.
Thank you, that's been very helpful.
