It's been a while since we've heard from our friends in Andorra. Seems they've had good snow, the FWT and there's a possibility the season may be extended. NEW

 

 

 

It's been an exciting few weeks in Andorra.

The highlight has certainly been the Freeride World Tour that took place in Arcalis at the beginning of the month.

There were prime conditions for the competition and there was some truly spectacular lines left on the mountain.

"It's a great honour to have this prestigious competition choose to join us every year, putting Andorra on the world freeride map," said Ian Coles from the company, Andorra Resorts.

A team from PlanetSKI was in Andorra in January.

... and then again at the start of February.  
Plus news of the very real prospect of the break-up of the Grandvalira ski area.

So, what about the current snow?

"There are just four weeks left of the season and the mountains are set with a great base so if people are looking for a last minute March ski break, Andorra would be a great choice," added Ian Coles.

Arcalis is even looking to extend their season until the end of April.
