Andorra for families (Kids Programmes)

Andorra for families  - Looking for a family friendly ski holiday then Andorra is the place to come.  The ski stations have worked incredibly hard over the last few years to introduce facilities that make a family ski holiday better than ever.

The childcare facilities are pretty amazing with nursery facilities and snowgardens where little ones can learn to ski in complete safety.    There are even dedicated ski areas for children up to 12 years old with fun characters like fairies and goblins along the circuits including snowy forests and circus themed areas.

Affordability is also key and there are some great offers in Andorra on full ski packs in all of the resorts including lift passes, ski and boot hire and ski lessons for children.



For children between 1 and 4 years old there are dedicated nurseries on the mountain which are run by the local ski schools (ages vary between the stations.) For little ones then Arinsal is a great choice as they take babies from 1 year old. If the children are slightly older then all the resorts have nurseries that will take children from 2 years old.

  • Children will either be inside or playing outside in the snow.
  • The children will be able to play with various toys as well as participate in arts and crafts whilst fully supervised by qualified staff.
  • They will not receieve ski lessons.

Snow Garden

The snow garden is for children between 3 and 5 years old. At the end of the course the 3 year old children will be familiar with their ski equipment, be able to move along the flat on 2 skis as well as be able to go down gentle pistes in a controlled manner.

The children aged 4 to 5 will have skied a bit more and be able to enjoy the gentle pistes as well as be a little more independant on the skis.

The children will progress at their own pace and there is no rush to learn, the most important thing is that they enjoy their time on the snow.   At the end of the course, there will be a party as well as a certificate and a gift for each child.

The Snowgardens are great. They will introduce the children to the sport of skiing whilst having fun in the safe hands of specialist instructors.

First Time Skiers?

Andorra is a great option for beginners wanting to start their ski experience. Andorra has a good choice of resorts with slopes suitable for all abilities.   

The green and blue runs are normally quite wide and gentle downhills that are perfect for beginners or anyone in the process of learning.  

Andorra offers ski schools in all of the main resorts and those new to skiing can benefit from the experience of the international instructors who cater perfectly for beginners as well as the more experienced skiers.  

The group lessons help beginners from A to Z in a friendly environment with other skiers of the same level.  

Starting from the basics of balance, posture and learning the equipment until you are gliding down the slopes.  Private lessons can also be arranged, but are not nearly as economical as the group lessons.  

For the little members of the family, the SnowGarden combines learning the basics of ski alongside fun in the snow which is very popular for both the children and the parents.

Basically, the ski-schools cater separately for all ages, young and old alike, which makes Andorra perfect for families with children as well as adults that are just beginning their ski adventure.  

It is important to note that the group lessons at the ski-schools always start on a Monday, so it is recommended that you arrive at your hotel on a Sunday if you want to take advantage of this service.
