Our Ski Slopes in Andorra

We will not deny it, in Andorra we have the best ski slopes in Europe.

19 February 2020
 We can say it with a very proud of it. In addition to having a privileged geographical situation, we have an ideal climate to make the most of the winter season.

And it is that the state of the slopes and the snow make spending a few days in the Principality a wonderful experience. 

Ski Slopes in Grandvalira

Grandvalira has always been one of the favorite destinations for mountain sports and skiing lovers. Thanks to its large practicable areas, it has 6 sectors linked together. So, if you are looking for a ski resort where you can slide every day on a new track, Grandvalira will be your best choice. Let’s see everything that each of these 6 sections offers us.

Encamp Sector

It is the first access to the ski resort that we find when crossing the border between Spain and Andorra. It is also the one that is located closest to Andorra la Vella and Escaldes-Engordany, so if you are planning to stay in one of these two cities, you can access the slopes from here.

We recommend that you get on the cable car that leaves you in Funicamp. Its route is 6km, which makes it the longest in Europe. Once you have reached the top, let yourself be surprised by the amazing panoramic views of the station. 

Canillo Sector

Ideal for families and beginners in snow sports. Its tracks have a low level of difficulty, which makes them the perfect place to gain confidence and take those first impressions with the snow.

If you are planning to spend most of your time skiing in this area, you can stay in the same town of Canillo, a quiet and familiar place.

This area is perfectly adapted to enjoy it throughout the year. In winter, the little ones will be able to do the Mont Magic circuit and even throw themselves in one of the longest zip lines in Europe. During the summer, the Canillo offers activities for the whole family in Family Park,a place where the fun has neither age nor limits.

El Tarter Sector

The Tarter is one of the areas with the greatest and most complete offer in Grandvalira. This is where you will find the famous Snowpark, only suitable for experienced skiers and wanting to feel the adrenaline in their veins.

On the other hand, families also have their place in this sector, where the children of the house can enjoy the Bababoom Circus children’s circuit to the fullest, always taking care of specialized monitors.

Soldeu Sector 

Without a doubt, the best choice for young people wanting to have fun skiing through its endless slopes during the day and enjoying the wide night offer of bars at night.

And, for the insatiable of mountain sports, Soldeu has become the best destination thanks to summer outdoor activities. Visitors can take a bike tour through the Bike Park, surrounded by the wildest nature or play golf in a 2,000-meter high field. 

Grau Roig Sector

If what you are looking for is to spend a few days in one of the most exclusive areas of Andorra, my recommendation is that you opt for the Grau Roig area. It is the only one that does not have an urban center, so you will be one of the lucky ones to enjoy this idyllic place 24 hours a day. 

And you can wonder, where do I stay? The answer is very clear, at the Hotel Grau Roig. A luxury spa hotel located in the heart of the mountain where you will enjoy fantastic views. Its wide range of spa, massages, and restaurants will make you not want to leave the hotel other than skiing and mountain activities.

The Grau Roig area has ski slopes suitable for all levels and perfect for both children and adults. It also has different areas to practice freeride, mountain skiing and sledding or snowmobiling.And, if that wasn’t enough, we present the jewel in the crown, the only approved Kilometer Launched track in the entire Iberian Peninsula. 

Pas de la Casa Sector

This may be one of the best-known areas and the favorite destination for many snow sport lovers because of its very complete offer of tracks as well as hotels, restaurants and leisure and shopping areas. 

Its tracks are suitable for all audiences as they have different levels of difficulty. On the other hand, it is located in a unique place, surrounded by the most amazing mountains of the Pyrenees where you can enjoy simply incredible views. You feel lucky being on the top of the mountain, seeing the infinite tracks at your feet and the most beautiful sky at your back.

You Have All the Services You Need in Grandvalira

The ski slopes of Andorra never stop surprising us. They allow us to enjoy a lot of activities and take advantage of every minute we spend in them. As you can see, it has special areas for children, for adults, for beginners, for the most daring and expert skiers …

It is also important to note that most of these accesses are adapted for people with reduced mobility and have a track assistance service. Because safety comes first and, before any small fall or incident, our tracks have specialized services and staff, ready to assist you.

And, one of my favorite parts, and surely yours, is the Après-Ski. Take that cool beer listening to the best music at the station itself, which you deserve after a full day of sports. Enjoy a good tribute and an amazing dinner in the mountain restaurants.  And, if you still have strength left, slide down the illuminated night track.

You will agree with me that a trip like this is so worthy, whether you do it with family or friends, don’t you?
