Soldeu - El Tarter Resort Info
Part of the large Grandvalira ski area, Soldeu is a good value resort with fairly reliable snow and plenty of sun. It boasts one of the most highly rated ski schools in Europe and, with most of the pistes catering to beginners and early intermediates, it's a perfect place to learn. For advanced skiers and snowboarders there isn't so much to play with, although you can get a snowcat tow to the Piz de Encampanada for good off-piste. There is also cheap heli-skiing on offer and a decent enough snowpark .
Soldeu ski resort
In the resort itself there's a good selection of eateries at reasonable prices, and the atmosphere is fantastic, far out-charming Soldeu's Andorran relatives. In spite of a less-than-raucous nightlife it is still a lively village, but mostly bar-based.
One of the most popular resorts in Andorra, if not the Pyrenees, Soldeu has a lot going for it.

Snow Overview - Andorra (snow news updated 10-Dec-2013)
There is excellent on-piste skiing at all of our featured resorts in Andorra which continue to provide clear and sunny skies.
There has been no new snow in Pal/Arinsal (50/80cm) or Arcalis (40/120cm) in the Vallnord region since the beginning of the month. Combined with warmer, sunny weather this has created some spring conditions on the lower slopes. However, there is still fantastic skiing to be found on the upper slopes and unlimited visibility provided by clear skies.
There are similar conditions in Grandvalira at Pas de la Casa (100/170cm) and Soldeu (100/170cm). Despite the lack of recent snowfall, early-season storms have created such a good December base that skiers and snowboarders enjoyed good skiing at both resorts over the weekend.
European Weather Outlook
The sunny weather looks set to continue in Europe with France, Switzerland and Austria all expecting clear skies and dry days throughout next week. Temperatures could also rise to above 5C in some places.
While very little snow is expected to fall anywhere in Europe this week Bulgaria could receive light snow during the middle of the week in preparation for opening day at Bansko next weekend. There is also some much-needed light snow forecast for Oppdal in Norway.
