Forecast for the weekend

As far as the weather and snow conditions are concerned, this weekend from March 29 to 30, Grandvalira will have virtually 100% of its skiable area open, with about 118 slopes and 210 kilometers available. The natural snow accumulated in Andorran territory has been bolstered by light snowfall over the last few days, with depths ranging from 90 to 230 inches.  Temperatures over the next few days will be cold, but no rain is expected at the weekend.

Almost all the facilities in the territory, restaurants, schools and other services will be fully operational.  It should be said that as El Tarter Snowpark will be closed to contest the Total Fight, the general public has the other two snowparks of the resort available for freestyle, located in the Grau Roig sector: Xavi Park and Sunset Park Peretol with the opening hours of the latter being from 5:00 to 10:00 p.m., Tuesday to Sunday.
