Gay Ski Week in ANDORRA! Just Weeks Away!

The 2nd Annual Gay Ski Week in Andorra
is just a few weeks  away!

March 21-28, 2010.

Andorra is a small country nestled  between  Spain and France and offers some great skiing, shopping and one of the most amazing  Spa’s  I have ever seen! You have to fly into Barcelona, Spain  or Toulouse, France.  Then it’s a couple hours  away, up into the mountains of Andorra.

And March is a great time to go.  USUALLY, not too cold.  Last year when we were there, one day the air  was so warm, we actually  took off our coats and shirts for a bit and soaked up the sunshine and sipped a glass of wine on the slopes! Andorra has a high mountain climate with Mediterranean influences. Temperatures are low in the winter and mild in the summer, with significant variations depending on altitude and orientation.Andorra has a high percentage of sunshine and a generally dry climate.

Andorra truly has some breathtaking mountains!  We stood in awe at the Grand Valira ski resort/station, from the base of the mountains, looking towards the top, which must have stretched 2+ miles…skiers looked like ants moving down the hills!  Equally as beautiful, but much smaller was the Vallnord resort/station.

Even if you don’t ski, there is lots to do. Snow mobiling, sled rides, bike skis other fun activities. And when you are not on slopes, you might be shopping. 

Since there is no income  tax  and lots of duty free, Andorra is a great place to shop. Electronics, prestigious  fine jewelry and even fashion and perfumes, are much lowere than in some countries.  The products that can be imported into Spain or France are tax free up to certain limits and must be declared when they exceed a specific amount. For example, visitors over the age of 15 who buy durable products worth more than 525 € must pay duty before taking them to Spain or France.  

When you are done skiing and shopping, you need a  SPA! And one of the most beautiful spa’s I have ever seen is  here!  CALDEA SPA.  is AMAZING! It’s like something out of a Busby Berkeley movie!

Designed by the architect Jean-Michel Ruols – is fruit of the will of the community (town council) of Escaldes-Engordany to make use of the richness of the territory’s thermal water, with a philosophy different to that of traditional health resorts: thermoludism. The concept was entirely innovative and avoids use of the therapeutic properties of thermal water.

Thermoludism is the use of the properties and benefits of thermal water to rest, recuperate vitality and well-being. The water at different temperatures procures authentic gymnastic toning for the body, and the thermal water help psychic rebalance.
