Probably Andorra's best known resort, Soldeu offers varied skiing, great for beginners and improving intermediates, and some great off piste for experts.
In Soldeu, you can take the gondola to the slopes of Espiolets, where there is a wide bridge across the river which forms the piste on the way home and elevators take you up to the gondola. There are two neighbouring villages, El Tarter and Canillo, El Tarter being a few miles down the road and El Canillo lower down. The Espiolets nursery area is ideal for beginners and has moving carpet lifts and the ski school has a special British run section. For building confidence intermediates should try the area east of Espiolets, or race around the Riba Escorxada valley.
