Full review

Vallter is fantastic if you are looking for a queue free , relaxing , hassle free skiing experience.
We ( 4 blokes - 19 to 47) have visited in the first week of Feb for the last 5 years . After a 2 hour flight to Gerona and just over an hours drive through some truly breathtaking scenery you can be enjoying a cold cervesa in Setcases just after you have dropped off your cases at La farga Hotel ( which is quiet and where the service is superb and the friendliest we have encountered in 5 years - and it`s got table footy !! ).
If your looking for titty bars and apres ski Setcases isn`t for you - nothing open after 7pm other than the hotel .

Camprodon is a futher 15/20 mins from Vallter and is not exactly buzzin but there are more bars ( Spanish style obviously so smokey and basic ) and restaurants open. Try the pizza place opposite the Hotel Du Camprodon - tell them Ox sent you and you will probably get a discount.

Around 50 euro`s for your pass and kit is reasonable

Anyway if you choose to give Vallter a try will see you first week in Feb 2011.........Aworrrrrrrrrrrrrrh !
