Snow & Ski - Andorra GrandValira - Part 2

Now it's time for more pictures of beautiful snowed landscapes. 

I was wearing goggles in the past in many of my travels and adventures around the world, but at some point the frame said "enough". Sometime ago Father Bunny bought me a new ones.

My original ones were SMITH (a well known brand of snow goggles) but know he got me some from LIDL (Crivit Brand)

Anyone there wanna be my stepfather? 

I remind you I inherited 1 million USD from my grandfather and that the money is well kept in a Swiss account.

 Tometaro did not need any clothes,
 "I am a Polar Bear" he said

 I know my grand grand grand ma was a snow hare,
but when the family moved to Hong Kong
we lost our cold proof DNA 
Accidents are likely to happen on snow.
Protection is a must kids!!!

Snow & Ski - Andorra GrandValira - Part 1

It had been a while since my first trip to Andorra. I was there with my sister in 2006 (you can check it here).

But lately I have discovered a nice place called Canillo (from there you can access Grandvalira ski resort). I visited it for the first time past December and this past weekend too. 

I love snow - have you notice my fur is white and that I wear winter clothes? - but unfortunately there's not a lot in Barcelona or Hong Kong... Even in Andorra you ave to go up in the mountains to step on it.

Fortunately my two visits to Andorra have coincided with some of the best snow days people can remember in last years. And lowest temperaturest too.

So, what we got was a very nice hotel with spa, plenty of snow (more than one meter) just on the streets, great powder to ski, great food, great fun...

...and of course an old man complaining about the road conditions and thinking if we could be able to return home. (i am talking about my Father).

 It was snowing a little bit when we arrived
 Tometaro and his friend at Grandvalira
  Ski Shuttle with "some" snow on its roof

  Father Bunny took his new snow boots

 Summer tires 255/50/R19, not the best choice
for snowy roads, but a lot of fun if fully insured.
(that is not the case)
