The ski season begins and the accommodations begin to smoke. One option is skiing in Vallnord, Andorra in search of new or known sensations, finding places of great tranquility and if possible adapted to go with young children. All this and much more is what we can find in Vallnord, a more flirtatious station than GrandValira and ideal for quieter skiers.
