Tue 15th April:  Wall-to-wall Andorran sunshine and still plenty of snow - you lucky people!
"For me the experience with the Instructor academy was one of the most exciting and rewarding of my life.
Loads of fun on the slopes, great training and an incredible sense of achievement on passing level 2 in the
final week of my time in Soldeu.
I couldn't ask for anything more and it has opened a whole new world of work for me! No regrets and I have fantastic memories of all the people I met and the help I received from other Instructors."

Peter H. - Fastrack Student - January 2012.

We provide a full range of CSIA training courses from Level I right upto Level IV, with Certification to Level III. We also provide Pre Courses, PDP’s, Course Conductor Training, GS Training
and GS Modules. This is all backed up by
our off-course Development Programme in
conjunction with the Soldeu Ski School.
The interest in our Andorra CASI courses is growing every year. As last year we will operate up to Level III Training and Exams. Training, Pre Courses & Exams are available in Dec, Jan, Mar & April.
Our Spring Mountain Guide courses are so popular with all that Pyrenean sun and blue skies! So in April we are once again running the Level I Ski Guide Mountain Safety course as required by Andorra.

Over the years, our Fastrack Gap Programme has grown to accomodate candidates' ideas. So now we run a selection of 4, 6 and 10 week courses. CSIA for skiers and CASI for boarders. So the season looks like this:

4 wk 20-Jan

In 1963 the first ski lift was installed in
Soldeu, signalling the start of a project
financed by private capital of the Baró,
Salvans and Torrallardona families who
formed ENSISA. This company oversaw
the growth of the resorts up to 2003 when
GRAND VALIRA was born.

Over the last few years, Grand Valira have made some massive terrain changes on the mountain to accomodate European and World Cup events. This year in March, Aliga, the new downhill run in El Tarter, will stage World Championship Super G and Downhill, while the highly respected Avet run, down the face in Soldeu, will host Slalom and GS in the same event.
