For someone who likes high temperatures as much as receiving a letter from the Treasury in the mailbox, the fact that end the summer and, finally, begin to remit the infernal heat that we have suffered in almost all of Europe in July and August, is great news. But it is also because autumn comes and I can start preparing the ski season.

Looking at what happened during the last years, it seems that the seasons are delaying a bit and the good snow may not arrive until the month of December, the season lengthening until well into the month of March or, as happened a couple of seasons ago, even until April.

One of my favorite areas for skiing in the Iberian Peninsula is the small one Principality of Andorra. The proximity (from my home in Alicante) of the Granada Sierra Nevada has made me visit it several times but it is true that the offer of stations is much more diverse and of higher quality in the Principality.

I usually stay at La Massana, a town with more than 1,000 years of history that, since the 60s, has taken advantage of the opening to winter tourism to grow exponentially and improve infrastructure and its hotel and leisure offer.

On other occasions, however, I have preferred to take advantage of deals in Grandvalira and I have traveled to Pas de la Casa, a town that is perfect to enjoy the vibrant nightlife that skiers usually look for. Of course, I do not advise you to give yourself too enthusiastically to her because if you do not end up taking more advantage of the ibuprofen box that you took than the ski pass.

Within the stations I have tried in this Pyrenean redoubt of Grandvalira, I can highlight the following:

Andorra is not just skiing ... Although these landscapes attract anyone
