"La Massana" by any other name
The Andorran resort is also known as La Massana and has common misspellings:
The direction which the various La Massana slopes face can make or break your ski holiday. To guarantee good snow conditions, choose a resort with piste which face the right way for the time of year you're travelling.
- In the coldest winter months of January and February pick a resort with sunny south facing slopes, so your days on the snow doesn't feel like a polar expedition.

The best destinations have areas which face in all directions so that you're guaranteed greating conditions whatever the weather. La Massana has slopes facing NE N.
