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 05-Dec-2013)
It is only the first week of full operations at our featured Andorran resorts but they are all experiencing excellent early-season conditions.
Following heavy snowfall over the weekend there is fantastic on-piste skiing on offer in Grandvalira. Pas de la Casa (70cm/180cm) and Soldeu (70cm/140cm) have most of their lifts open and impressive snow bases for this time of the year. The resorts both enjoyed a week of warmer, sunny weather.
Pal/Arinsal (50cm/100cm) and Arcalis (90cm/180cm) also both have strong snow cover and, although the off-piste has become variable after a week of strong sun, skiers and boarders enjoyed perfect conditions on groomed runs on Thursday 5th December.
European Weather Outlook
The weather over the weekend and into next weekend is forecast to remain sunny for the majority of European skiing destinations. The good news is that mid-mountain temperatures should remain around freezing over the weekend, although it is set to get mild again next week.
Strong winds have affected the Scottish resorts this week, with some damage reported at Nevis Range. Some fresh snow could land over the weekend.
Fresh snow has already been reported in Norway and Sweden too, and more snow could land over the weekend.
