Improvements in the routes of slopes, extension of the artificial snow network, renovation of the ski schools, new points of restoration, a new mountain ski circuit in Soldeu ... These are just some of the new proposals that you will find in Grandvalira this year.
Ready, Set, Go!
If you come with your family, you cannot miss the new attraction of Mon(t) Magic Family Park Canillo. Speed Check will time your descent of the slope and will show your results on the screen. A healthy and fun way to compete between parents and children, with which you will surely have you have a good time as a family.
Some of the classic skiable ski slopes have modified their original routes during this season. This is the case of the mythical Avet slope of the Alpine skiing World Cup, which has been extended to allow the slalom and giant slalom events to be held in parallel during the 2019 World Cup Finals. The Esquirol slope, which starts from the Tosa Espiolets and goes down to the bottom of the El Tarter sector, changes its route to make it more accessible to skiers who are just beginning to practice skiing. The Riberal slope in the Grau-Roig sector will see its final stretch lengthened to make the braking area of this slope much more secure, which will once again host the World Cup of speed skiing. And in the Pas de la casa, the blue runway that goes from Costa Rodona to the bottom of the station, has improved its initial stretch adapted to the needs of the ski school and families.
Cannons: snow assured!
The constant investment in artificial snow-making in Grandvalira means that the domain can guarantee more than 65% of its total ski area, when the weather conditions allow it. In this season 2017-18, there will be new generation cannons that can work with more marginal temperatures and more effectively.
Share your best smile
When this year you go down the emblematic slope Àliga of El Tarter, you will find a sculpture of a giant eagle as a 'photocall' so that, in addition to enjoying the snow and the slopes of Grandvalira, you will have a fun memory of your descent and you will make the ones that have not been as lucky as you green!
The ski schools also improve
Children circuits of all sectors improve in space and features to make them more attractive for children and thus make their experience in the snow even more pleasant. For adults, the VIP room of the Grau Roig School has been renovated with new furniture and incorporating a sports massage service for those who want it. The school of the Soldeu sector, also renews its reception area with a change of distribution to favor the comfort of the skiers offering a more individualized attention.
Grandvalira is also mountain ski
If you are fan hiking, this year you can enjoy 6 marked circuits in Grandvalira. To the 5 existing circuits until last year, this year adds a new one in the Soldeu sector for users with a medium high Skimo level.
Eat on the slopes
Soldeu launches The Exceptional Tea Lounge Experience, by the prestigious tea company of Sri Lanka, Dilmah. A space that we can define as a hybrid between a Tea Lounge and a bakery with its own workshop that you will find in the Gall de Bosc building (next to the Ski and Snowboard School of Soldeu). You will enjoy an extensive menu of teas, cocktails, mocktails (non-alcoholic cocktails), smoothies and infusions in a breakthrough space that will set trends.
In addition, as in previous years, you can enjoy the best of Andorran cuisine in the restaurants of the domain, or opt for a self-service quality service with the 'Free Flow'. Without forgetting the terraces where to make a stop, especially on sunny days!
As you can see, Grandvalira already has everything ready so that this weekend the opening of the season will be a success. And you, do you already have your reservation? If you're still thinking about it, check out our hotel packages with ski and take advantage of the discounts we offer you!
