Ready for action in Grandvalira? Get ready for the new season
Discover all the sectors to enjoy skiing and white sports in Grandvalira and plan your adventure in Andorra.
To get you ready for the season that starts on 1 December, we want to tell you everything you'll find in each of the Grandvalira sectors. The first thing you need to know is that Grandvalira is divided into 7 sectors, with a total of 210 kilometres and 138 slopes for all levels (from the easiest to the most expert: green, blue, red and black). These sectors are the access points to the Grandvalira slopes and are interconnected.
Soldeu: the closest sector to the hotel
We start with the sector in the centre of the resort, the closest to you when you stay at Park Piolets hotel. It offers wide slopes and challenging descents. In total you will find 36 slopes for all levels, themed circuits for the youngest members of the family, ski school, skimo and freeride circuits.
Soldeu is home to the famous Avet World Cup slope, the venue for the major alpine skiing events in the more technical disciplines of slalom and giant slalom. On 10 and 11 February 2024, this slope will once again dress up to host the finals of the women's World Cup.
It also offers snow activities, including the fun Snake Gliss.
Remember that from the hotel we offer a door-to-door transfer service to the Soldeu cable car, every day of the season. Discover here this and the other services for skiers at the hotel.
Pas de la Casa: the only sector of Grandvalira with night skiing
We move on to Pas de la Casa, where we find 16 slopes of all levels, ski mountaineering circuits, nursery and themed slopes for children and freeride areas.
Since last year, this sector has been home to Grandvalira's new attraction: Snowtubbing. A 350-metre tubing slope with turns and tunnels that pass underneath the circuit and can reach 60 kilometres per hour.
Moreover, this is the only slope where you can ski in the evening when the rest of the resort is closed, on a slope completely lit by floodlights. Check the opening times here.
Grau Roig: the most spectacular
This is undoubtedly the most unspoilt sector of the ski resort, where you can enjoy some of the wildest landscapes in Andorra. It has 36 slopes, a children's school, snow garden and Kids Forest circuit for the youngest skiers to learn to ski in a unique setting. It also has ski mountaineering routes and a freeride area. Grau Roig is also the venue for the World Cup, in this case in the Kilometre Launch event, on the only Grandvalira slope dedicated to this modality.
Another of the services offered in this sector is a snow activity centre, where you can go on excursions with dog sledges, snowshoes or snowmobiles.
Peretol and the Grandvalira night snowpark
This is Grandvalira's newest sector, located between Grau Roig and Soldeu, in Bordes de Envalira, and was added to the resort in the 2019-2020 season. It is known for hosting the only night-time SnowPark in the Pyrenees open from 15h to 21h from Tuesday to Sunday. Undoubtedly the meeting point for freestyle lovers.
In addition, as parking is limited, Grandvalira offers free transport to customers staying at Bordes de Envalira to the access to the sector.
El Tarter: a World Cup sector
In El Tarter you can go down the Àliga piste, the famous slope that hosts downhill races of the Alpine Skiing World Cup (the last finals were held in the 2022-23 season). Moreover, this is an iconic piste for Grandvalira, its shape having inspired the "X" in the Grandvalira logo.
It has 26 slopes, themed areas for children such as the Bababoom Circus, ski mountaineering itineraries and snowshoeing.
El Tarter is also known for après-ski at the Abarset, one of the most famous meeting points in the country.
Canillo and the Mon(t) Magic
This is the ideal area to start skiing. It is easily accessible by the Canillo cable car, located in the centre of the town. It has 7 slopes and the Mon(t) Magic activity centre for families. It offers all kinds of proposals both in winter and summer, with activities such as the zip line that flies over the Forn lake and the Magic Gliss (the giant slide with the option of going down equipped with virtual reality goggles to increase the sensations even more).
Encamp the most central access
The Funicamp, a 6-kilometre cable car that links the slopes with the town of Encamp, 20 minutes from Andorra la Vella and Escaldes Engordany. In this sector you will find 14 slopes of all levels and a freeride area.
Since last season, all the resorts in Andorra have been operating under the same brand name: Grandvalira Resorts, which now includes the well-known Pal Arinsal and Ordino Arcalís ski stations. This means that you can now ski in all the country's resorts with the same ski pass, the multi-day pass for 2 days or more, which offers 303 skiable kilometres and 213 pistes.
Once you know everything that awaits you in Grandvalira, you can book your 5-star hotel and ski pass package. We'll be waiting for you!
