Skiing is an excellent sport that does not actually have to be partaken in during the winter, as we know it. You see, in places like Andorra and the French Alps, the mountains are good for skiing until around late March time, but I would recommend you go between December and March, but February is a good month time. Skiing isn’t as hard as I thought it would be, but if you have never been before then I would strongly urge you to book a holiday where you get a skiing lessons, they’re worth the money, you learn how to do the basic turning, slowing down and recovering, and most travel agents do package holidays where accommodation, lessons and ski hire is included. Another thing, if you have never been before there is no point in purchasing a really decent pair of skis, as you may as well just hire them until you know whether you like this extreme ‘winter’ sport. Buy all the appropriate gear, like a skiing jacket (although sometimes it is too hot for them), get the skiing trouser things and make sure you have lots of sun cream and a decent pair of glasses. I have been skiing to Andorra, the most reasonable place to ski in Europe outside of the dry UK ski slopes, and I would definitely recommend this country to you for skiing. It’s situated in between France and Spain, you’ll have to fly to Toulouse in France then take a coach up to Andorra, staying in one of the lovely resorts. Skiing is fantastic. It’s one of the most exhilarating things I have ever done in my life and I would love to do it again, and hopefully will do. I believe that Andorra is a perfect place to learn how to ski, it’s the most reasonable place to do so, and the slopes in most resorts are not that daunting, i.e. it’s not as dangerous. Take care, enjoy your skiing and remember to seek lots of advice from travel agents. I would give skiing 5 Stars.
