What do you need to enjoy the snow with your children?

Organising a snow holiday in Andorra with the whole family is an activity you can’t miss in winter. However, there are some points to bear in mind, apart from accommodation, planning the trip and meals. One of them is how to dress the little ones properly to protect them from the cold and damp when skiing or doing activities in the snow. In this article we tell you about the ski equipment you will need so that you have everything ready.

What clothing does your child need for the snow?

The important thing is that you travel with what you need so that you don’t lack anything, but that you don’t carry unnecessary clothes either. As you will see, one of the basic premises is to dress them in layers, protecting them from the cold and at the same time being able to take clothes off when they are hot and prevent them from sweating.

– Thermal clothing

Start with a T-shirt and thermal tights. They need to fit snug but not tight, otherwise they won’t be able to move freely. Make sure they are breathable so that the garment stays dry at all times. There are tops with high collars, but if they have a neckwear, you won’t need them.

– Anorak and ski trousers

The jacket and trousers should be waterproof so that water doesn’t get through when they fall or play in the snow. If you feel they are not warm enough, you can add a middle layer, such as a polar fleece, between the thermal T-shirt and the anorak. It is very practical that the wrist of the anorak has velcro so that you can adjust the jacket to the arm and keep out the cold. For younger children, you can dress them in ski overalls, which are easier to put on as they have fewer zips and buttons.

– Ski socks

It is essential that their feet are well protected and with the right material to avoid the cold and chafing from the boots.

– Gloves

It’s best to play it safe and have two pairs. Children love to play in the snow, they end up getting them wet, even if they are waterproof. Always carry a second pair with you so they don’t get their little hands wet.

– Goggles

Check that they fit and hold their face well and that they have good visibility for both cloudy and sunny days.

Boards, boots and poles for the little ones

As they are still growing, consider whether you prefer to buy the equipment or rent it, which is also a good solution. Boards, bindings and poles depend on their weight and height and may not be suitable for them from one year to the next.
You can rent or buy ski equipment in the shop of Park Piolets Mountain Hotel&Spa, the 5* hotel that belongs to the same group as the apartaments.

Sun protection

You probably already know this, but it’s worth remembering the importance of applying sun cream and lipstick to protect yourself from the sun. At the chemist’s they will help you find the one that best suits your child’s skin.

Skiing with children in Grandvalira

And now that you’ve got everything ready, all you need to do is put your suitcase in the car and come! In Andorra there are many options for enjoying the snow.
Obviously, the first is skiing. In the ski resorts you’ll find endless possibilities for your children to learn to ski. From schools and classes adapted to their age and level, so that they can get started in this sport or improve their technique. In this article you will find information about skiing with children. But you can also choose from a wide range of activities, we’ll tell you all about them here, so you’ll have a great time!

Don’t wait any longer and book Els Llacs Mountain Apartments with accommodation and ski pass in Grandvalira to enjoy a family ski holiday.

The last skiing moments of the season: ski in spring in Andorra

The ski season isn’t over yet! This year it runs until 16 April, so there’s still time to come skiing in spring. The last months of the season are characterised by higher temperatures, longer and sunnier days, so you’ll have to adapt to the conditions. To continue enjoying the slopes until the last day we give you some tips that we hope you will find useful. It is also important that you plan your getaway well and check the weather before leaving home.

How to ski in spring

To enjoy the snow in April and March you have to bear in mind that the temperatures are higher and the sunshine is more intense than in the first months of the season. As the spring season begins, the snow melt increases and the snow becomes softer. So you will have to adapt to the weather for spring skiing. The watchword is to get up early and take advantage of the early hours of the day when the snow is in the best condition. In the morning the snow is firmer and as the day progresses it becomes softer. Start on the lower slopes and those that are sunnier, and leave the higher slopes and those that get less sun for later in the day, as the snow is better preserved there.

Dress in layers for spring skiing

Even though it’s getting warmer, don’t get overconfident… remember you’re in the mountains. The weather changes frequently, the temperature varies during the day and you’re at a higher altitude. If you want to ski in spring or enjoy snow activities, it’s best to dress in layers. In the morning it is much colder, but by midday the sun is warmer. So ideally you should be able to take off pieces of clothing to avoid sweating.

– On the body

Choose a lighter outer jacket as well as a mid-layer. Zipped clothes help to ventilate and help you to last longer in them. For the close-to-body area, wear a moisture-wicking garment to avoid sweating.

– On the head and neck

Wearing a helmet is compulsory, but a hat or ski straps may not be necessary. For the neck you can wear a lighter garment that will still protect you from the cold in the early hours of the morning and that you can keep in your pocket when it gets warmer.

– Goggles

Of course, goggles are essential all season and even more so in these months when the sun reflects much more on the snow.

– Gloves

Although the thermometer starts to rise, don’t leave them at home, because they also protect you from the sun. If you prefer, you can choose thinner gloves that will make you sweat less.

Els Llacs and ski pass offer

You’ll love coming skiing in spring, and you’ll see that you’ll get a better price than at other times of the season… And even more if you take advantage of our offer with accommodation and ski pass in Grandvalira 😉. You are guaranteed a 10% discount if you book through our website.

So now that you know what it’s like to ski in spring in Andorra, all you need to do is choose your flat and book with the ski pass.

actividades après-ski

Make the most of the Easter long weekend with children

This Easter you are not going to want to miss anything that’s going on in Andorra.
During the day: you won’t run out of Grandvalira Resorts slopes skiing or snowboarding with your children, or on your own while they learn to ski. When the slopes close: the fun continues! Andorra offers a wide range of après-ski activities to suit all tastes. You can make the most of the snow from morning to night, test yourself on ice, enjoy endless afternoons in a spa with the whole family or visit the chocolate factory in La Massana.
This Easter you will spend a crazy long weekend with your children!

Snowtubbing for the first time in Pas de la Casa

On 28 January Grandvalira opened the longest snow tubing slope in Europe. It can reach 60 km/hour and has a length of 350 metres, with turns and two tunnels that go under the slope, to make the experience much more exciting. The Easter long weekend is an excellent opportunity to try it out and let off some adrenaline with the family. It is suitable for children from 6 years old. The day pass and multi-day Andorra Pass include 1 free descent per pass, as well as the NordPass from 4 days (in all modalities except for children under 6 years old).

Palau de Gel après-ski activities

Have fun on ice at the Olympic ice rink in Canillo. Challenge your children to a go-kart race on ice or put on some skates and enjoy some skating time. The rink is indoor and the Palau de Gel offers other services such as a swimming pool, climbing wall, tennis and squash courts. It is located in the village of Canillo, just 15 minutes by car from the apartaments.

Wellness and spas for children

One of the most traditional après-ski activities in Andorra is to finish in the spa after a day of skiing. Without leaving the flats you can relax in our spa (at no extra charge) and take a bath in the jacuzzi with mountain views or relax in the sauna.
You can also venture out to discover the thermal lagoons of the Caldea Thermoludic with your family. And if you go with children from 3 to 8 years old, they can access Likids, the children-only spa of the most famous thermal centre in the country.
We recommend you book in advance to make sure you get a place.

Après-ski continues in the snow

If you like to enjoy the snow from morning to night, discover the forest under the moonlight on a snowmobile. The experience takes place in the Grau Roig sector of Grandvalira, which is very close to Els Llacs Mountain Apartments. Can you imagine exploring the forest at night on a snowmobile? The activity is suitable for children and young people, although those aged 6 to 17 must be accompanied by an adult.

Visit to the chocolate factory

And if you’ve come this far, you’re in for a very sweet surprise: Xocland, the chocolate factory in La Massana. Here you will discover how the cocoa beans are processed, following the whole process, and at the end of the visit you will have the chance to taste the chocolate. There are delicacies to suit all tastes, from dark chocolate with 90% cocoa to white and milk chocolate. They also have a wide variety of products such as chocolates, bars, pralines and their speciality, xoca: a combination of various chocolates with biscuits, fruit and other ingredients.
This activity is sure to be a hit with the youngest members of the household. The chocolate factory schedules visits on Saturday afternoons.

With these après-ski activities you won’t be able to resist coming to enjoy Easter in Andorra. Book your accommodation.

The end of the slope ends in a large skiable platform of 14,000 square metres, which connects it with the village of Soldeu.

Grandvalira Resorts and the unique Andorra Pass ski pass

Grandvalira Resorts is born, a new brand that brings together all the resorts in the country: Grandvalira, Pal Arinsal and Ordino Arcalís. However, each of them retains its own features and distinguishing characteristics. With the new union, from this season onwards you will be able to ski all the slopes with a single ski pass. The Andorra Pass is the season ski pass to ski the more than 300 kilometres of Andorran slopes, and you can also do so with the multi-day ski pass. 

New snow activities coming up

Grandvalira is planning new activities, one of which will be the creation of a giant ice and snow slide down which large doughnuts will slide. For the moment, the opening date has not been confirmed, although we already know the location, which will be in the Les Abelletes area in the Pas de la Casa sector. It will surely be a very fun activity, as we are used to from the resort. 

Sports competitions calendar 

Make a note of these dates and experience first-hand the great sporting events that will take place in Grandvalira during the 2022-23 winter season.  

– Alpine skiing World Cup Finals

The Avet slopes in the Soldeu sector and Àliga in the El Tarter sector will host the finals of the men’s and women’s alpine skiing World Cup for the second time in their history. It will take place from 13 to 19 March 2022, just 5 minutes by car from the flats.

Ordino Arcalís will once again host a Freeride competition from 30 January to 5 February in both men’s and women’s skiing and snowboarding. The junior competition will take place on the 5th and 6th.

Say goodbye to the ski season in Grandvalira

After the last snowfalls, it’s time to prepare a new ski getaway. Winter is over, but it’s not yet time to put the boards away. Until 18 April, there’s still time to come skiing and stay in our flats in front of Grandvalira, where you’ll find all the comforts you need to enjoy the snow.


Get ready to have a great time!


Spring skiing

After the cold winter, spring comes with more pleasant temperatures, longer days and more hours of natural light. Together with the snowfalls at the beginning of April, which leave good powder snow conditions, this year you can make the most of every last day on the ski slopes in Andorra.

In the morning, ski or snowboard on the good early morning snow, and at midday it’s time for terracing! Stop off at one of the restaurants for a bite to eat and recover your strength with vitamin D. Don’t forget your sun cream!

Grandvalira closes all its ski sectors on 18 April, but if you’re really looking forward to the snow, you can ski until 24 April in Ordino-Arcalís, located in the other valley.


Staying in flats in front of Grandvalira

Choose the best accommodation to make the most of your ski break or holiday, book close to the slopes and save time!

Els Llacs Mountain Apartments offer you a very good location right in front of one of the accesses to the resort through the Peretol sector, from where you can take the Pla de les Pedres chairlift to get to the slopes. If you prefer, you can also use our free shuttle service to Grau Roig. We also have a free ski locker at your disposal.

Our flats in Grandvalira are very well equipped and have everything you need whether you come with friends, as a couple or with friends, even a spa! When you come back from skiing you can recover your strength in the indoor jacuzzi, hammam or sauna. Or watch the sun go down from the outdoor jacuzzi.


Enjoy the best après-ski 

Until the end of the season you can do a host of activities in Andorra after skiing.

In the resort itself, in the Pas de la Casa sector, once a week one of its slopes opens until 9 pm so you can ski under the stars. In Soldeu, Grandvalira offers an irresistible family activity: tobogganing from the top of the slopes to the village. In the Peretol sector, right in front of Els Llacs Mountain Apartments, you will find the only snowpark that opens until 21h, ideal for practising your jumps and pirouettes until nightfall. All these proposals are relatively close to our flats in Grandvalira.

Moreover, in Andorra you will find many more options to complete your days in the snow. Like gastronomic plans for all tastes, ending the day in the thermal waters of Caldea or shopping in the different shopping centres of the country.


Say goodbye to the ski season in the best way: making the most of the powder snow from the last snowfalls. Book one of our flats in Grandvalira with ski pass and don’t miss out on this experience.


Remember that, although Grandvalira closes in April, we are still open all year round. 😉
