I am looking to book a ski holiday for next year, it will be first time with a 4.5 year old. Please could you tell me what the mix of skiing and other activities is in Snow garden for that age in Soldeu as it seems to be different depending on resort in Andorra. Also, do they have to start on a Monday or can they start any day? Thanks.
Sorry for the delay in posting! We've been in contact with the school and they are still creating the program for next winter and won't have it ready until the end of August I'm afraid - they have confirmed though that it's only a Monday start.
If you get in touch with us here at the beginning of September, we should be able to provide you with more detailed information.
Many thanks, Ian

The ski passis mandatory to access the ski lifts, it's not included in the price of the program (see prices and conditions)
* The activities and the courses will always be conditioned to the weather. Programme of activities subject to modification.
I had not checked back as we had decided not to go skiing but thanks for the info! We are now looking at coming at the end of the season. One option would mean we would be skiing from Sat 4 April to Wed 8 April.
Is the Snow Garden still running at that time? And if so, I assume all the below applies? i.e. my daughter could do a day and a half Sat/Sun and 3 days during the week?
I'm glad you're now thinking about coming to Soldeu, it's a great place!
The snow garden will still be running on the dates you're thinking of coming. Your daughter would be able to do the day and a half on the weekend and then three days commencing Monday.
You will need to book with the ski school directly, you can do this by calling them on +376 753 191, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or using their online booking system at escolasoldeu.com/en/online-reservations.
Hope this helps and do let me know if you have any further questions!
