Soldeu / Soldeu El Tarter in Andorra Resort Guide
Soldeu's ski area is accessed by parallel chair and gondola lifts from the two bases at Soldeu and El Tarter, giving at least four choices to get up to the above-treeline terrain first thing in the morning, minimising queues. There are two large ski areas specifically designed for beginners at Els Espoiolet in Soldeu and Riba Escorada in El Tarter and more than 160 multi-lingual teachers ready to give advice. Beginners will soon progress on to the gentle slopes of Solana del Forn above the resort. Intermediates will enjoy Soldeu's skiing the most, with predominantly easy and intermediate trails to enjoy. The new lift link to Pas de la Casa and Grau Roig opens up 150km (93 miles) of terrain best suited to intermediates. Expert skiers have eight trails to choose from and a drag lift serving the off piste terrain of Pic d'Encampadana. Here you will find a snowcat operation, unique to the Pyren�es, bringing off-piste powder to those who want it. It may be unique to the world in that the service is offered free of charge to lift pass holders without supplement. The ski school manages heli-skiing excursions, snowcat and off-piste ski lessons if you need them and can also offer telemark and snowboarding tuition. The resort's bump skiing stadium was extended a couple of years ago season and you can pick up free technique tips there on Friday evenings.
Accomodation & Après Ski
One of the big attractions of Soldeu is the fun and friendly après ski scene. There are lots of fantastic bars and restaurants throughout the village. Most of the bars are situated on the main road but you will also find some on the road running behind Hotel Himalaia.
The Harp is an Irish themed bar with live music during après and every night. Fat Alberts is open daily from 3pm through until 3am making it the perfect late night party venue. Aspen is a large bar with big screens for sports, pool tables, good pub grub and regular live music.
Andorra is well known for its duty free shopping so you will find brilliant value within the bars restaurants, supermarkets and ski shops in Soldeu.
