Après Ski Delights in Soldeu

While many skiers will choose a winter break focussed predominantly around the piste facilities, others will also factor in the après ski opportunities that are part of their chosen resort. For many, the après ski facilities are almost as important as the skiing itself, giving them a perfect environment to relax after a day on the slopes, socialising, making friends and enjoying the atmosphere.

The après ski scene depends largely on the resort you choose, with some offering a relative tranquillity compared with others that pride themselves on their lively resort. As far as a Soldeu ski holiday is concerned, you have the best of both worlds.

Après ski is probably the most popular in the Alps, where the bars at the bottom of the slopes are jam packed with skiers stopping for a beverage after their stint on the slopes while still donning their salopettes and boots.  Although predominantly an Alpine thing, it’s not unheard of elsewhere and Andorra has built quite the reputation for its après
ski facilities over recent years.

Largely due to its tax-free status, the scene has developed substantially. While it’s not as inexpensive as it used to be, the pubs, bars and restaurants still offer great value for money in comparison to some resorts in the Alps.

Soldeu certainly doesn’t disappoint with regards to the après ski. Plenty of bars exist, meaning instructor-led crawls are inevitable and the shenanigans can go on well into the early hours of the morning on some evenings.

It’s easy to let the evenings run away with you on a holiday in Soldeu, forgetting the main reason why you’re there is hitting the slopes. While the après ski facilities may be appealing and the bar tab doesn’t cost as much as you might expect, don’t forget you have to get up again in the morning to hop on the chairlift to the top of the mountain again! It’d be a waste to head to Soldeu just for the bars, after all!
