24 January 2019 from Danielle in 'Mountain weather''

The snow dumped all over Austria, did a pretty good job of covering the French, Italian and Swiss Alps, but was avoiding Andorra and the Pyrenees this winter. That is, until now! It started snowing earlier this week in the tiny Pyrenean country and the linked ski areas of Grandvalira and Vallnord have received almost a metre of snow so far! After a fairly dry winter to date, this week’s whiteout means they can finally open the entire ski area for the weekend.

Snowing like mad at Grandvalira yesterday

Nothing better than falling into fresh powder snow!

Born and raised in the ski paradise of Vancouver, Canada, I learned to ski before I can remember, balancing precariously on my parents’ skis as they sailed down the hill. I started snowboarding in my teens and am now delighted to be exploring everything Europe’s ski scene has to offer!
