Soldeu’s slopes are quite high and many of them face north, so snow reliability here is good. Piste grooming and snow-making are also excellent which has helped overcome some erratic early season snowfalls in recent years.


The area has more trees and is more sheltered than neighbouring Pas de La Casa, and is therefore less vulnerable to closure in bad weather.

Where to ski in bad weather:

There are some tree-lined runs on the lower part of the mountain above both Soldeu and El Tarter and, generally speaking, the local area is a little less exposed than in Pas de la Casa.


That said, most of the skiing is still above the tree-line, meaning that the Grand Valira as a whole is not ideal in bad weather.
