After surviving on snowmaking last winter, Grandvalira has invested in more snow cannons this season and will have one of the world's largest snowmaking operations with 1,075 guns (on a par with Killington, Vt.) covering 43 percent of the area. Although the season is still a few days away, with Europe's huge early season snowfalls so far passing to the north of Andorra, it seems a wise strategy. The resort has also increased the size of their customer services team on the slopes which will make it easier for clients to get around and boost their enjoyment on the slopes.
