Paul Rea had been visiting the resort with a friend
The family of a man found dead at a ski resort in Andorra have described him as fun-loving and caring.
Paul Rea, 24, of Milnthorpe, Cumbria was visiting the Pas De La Casa resort on his first snowboarding holiday.
He was found a day after he arrived, on Thursday 11 March, a distance away from the resort. It is believed he died of hypothermia.
His father, Phil, described his son as having many friends, with an "appetite for having fun".
He said: "Making people laugh was his star quality. He would always be there for his family and friends to listen to their problems and would go out of his way to help.
"He had a fantastic outlook on life and I'll always remember him repeating his favourite Delboy catchphrase - 'this time next year, I'll be a millionaire'."
It is believed Mr Rea and his friend went out on Wednesday 10 March to watch football on television. They then went to another bar and became separated.
Mr Rea's body was found covered in snow in the Envalira tunnel near the French border. It is not known how or why he was at that location.
The Andorra Consulate is investigating Mr Rea's death. A spokesman for police in Andorra told Spanish news agency Europa Press the body showed "no signs of violence".
Among other members of his family, Mr Rea leaves behind his "much loved" twin sister, Gemma.
