After years of thinking about it my Husband and I are finally looking to book our first ski holiday and as beginners we've been recommended Andorra. I've done a bit of research but would like some advice from experienced travellers to area.
We are in our mid 40s and are looking for a resort that's relatively lively with a good choice of bars/restaurants and caters for beginners. When it comes to accommodation aslong as it's clean, good service/food then it doesn't always have to be the most expensive. I'm not sure how much time you spend in your hotel on a ski holiday but I gather that being close to the to ski lifts is a plus but what other facilities should we be looking out for and can anyone recommend some places? We are thinking of going at the end of Feb/beginning of March, is this generally a good time to go?
I worked in the travel industry many years back so know the top ski tour ops, is it recommended to book through one of these or is it better to do it all independently?
Hoping we can get some good advice to make our first ski trip a fantastic one.
