  • Wide pistes, tree lined - watch the snow when it gets warmer

    Family of 4 went for a day trip. We live in Andorra so this was an interesting view of the "competition". 160 Euro - no discounts unfortunately - either for having a full season pass at a neighbouring ski resort or for the family.

    My wife and I are still basic level skiers and this resort has large wide runs and plenty of greens and blues - more than either Vallnord or Grandvalira in Andorra.

    Very pretty going up with trees all the way to the top.

    We only had a day so can't vouch for all the pistes: I read on the official site that a benefit of the place was its "north facing" pistes - well I didn't see any; in fact most I was on had the sun directly in front of them at midday - ie. south facing. This meant on this particular time; we've had a lot of hot weather the snow was mush from around 11am onwards. Compounded by the fact that a lot of the pistes are below 2000m. The high level pistes were ok a little longer.

    Restaurants

    At Mir station we had a break at the cafe there. It was a weekend, but the staff were completely overwhelmed, long queue (10mins) to get a coffee in a paper cup - didn't taste very nice either 2.5Euro

    At the main central area there are a couple of bigger restaurants. Good quality, tasty french fare: felt good to get such nice food at the top of the mountain. Salad was fresh, and kebab (brochette) juicy.

    Kids had a small hill and play area to keep them entertained. Was generally busy but not overloading the seating; single seats around the main building are good for relaxing while spotting a family table.
    • Poor effort coffee 2.5Euro
    • overloaded cafe at Mir station
    • Cool guy chef cooking up steaks and kebabs
    • don't sit indoors on such a nice day
    • Sit here and pounce on full table when one comes free.
    • staff working hard, but need more of them
    • Fresh salad and pastry to finish
