IF YOU COME TO SKI IN ANDORRA

On 2 January 2021, the Andorran ski resorts opened up some of their facilities only to residents of the country. Depending on how the epidemiological situation of our country and that of neighbouring countries develops, it is expected that this opening will extend to all our visitors, until through to April 11, 2021.

GrandvaliraVallnord and Naturlandia offer alternative snow-based activities to skiing and the use of ski lifts at the weekends. You can also enjoy the snow and nature with mountain guides and active tourism companies offering snowshoe, skimo and other excursions. Check out the websites of the different resorts and active tourism companies for further information.

Alpine skiing and forfait purchases are currently authorized for country residents only.

At all Andorra’s ski resorts, facility and equipment cleaning and disinfection plans have been implemented and will take place on a daily basis throughout the season for everyone’s safety.

All resort staff have been trained and equipped with the PPE required to ensure the health and safety of users and employees alike. Measures such as the compulsory use of a face mask, cleaning hands and physical distancing apply in order to ensure everyone’s safety.

There will be alcohol gel dispensers available for users in all shared facilities and spaces.

There will be a number of graphic signs on display at all resorts in several languages featuring general information (physical distancing of at least 1.5 m, hand hygiene, use of a face mask) and information specific to the particular space or area (ticket kiosks, restaurants, mechanical lifts, etc.).
