Sierra Nevada in Andalucia, Spain, has invested 1.4 millions Euros for the 2017-18 ski-season. They invested in snowcats, new snowmobiles, more snow cannons, a restaurant in Montebajo and developing more activites for non-skiers.
I had the chance to visit Andorra and Grandvalira recently and I was very surprised with what I’ve found. The Pyrenées are not as big and mighty as the cousins the Alps, but they do have an appeal that grows in you! I have no idea what to expect. I’ve always heard that Andorra is a cheap place to go skiing, as mostly all is duty free. Also, it is a popular spot for those ski instructors doing double seasons from South America.
