Winter is finally here and the ski season has begun. Maybe you’ve already done a few runs in the snow or maybe you’re still counting down the days until your getaway to Andorra. If you are about to plan your holidays in the snow, get ready to discover the new features that await you this year in Grandvalira. We tell you everything you need to know for your next ski trip.
Grandvalira grows with more kilometres of slopes
That’s right! This year you will be able to enjoy 3 new red pistes in the Canillo sector, which have been built in the Encampanada area next to the Seig chairlift, which is also new. The resort has now grown to 140 pistes and 215 kilometres.
On the other hand, it has also implemented improvements in the high section of the Port-Grau piste in the Pas de la Casa and Grau Roig sectors, in the Port d’Envalira – Antenes area. This area will be the entrance to the future ICONIC high-altitude sports performance centre.
Ski mountaineering and snowshoeing circuits
Ski mountaineering and snowshoeing enthusiasts will also see their opportunities in the snow increase. It is true that alpine skiing is the king sport, but Grandvalira is committed to a good number of snow sports and activities and incorporates new ones every season.
In Soldeu you will find a new ski mountaineering circuit and 6 new snowshoeing circuits in the Soldeu, El Tarter and Canillo sectors.
Improvements in infrastructures and services
The resort is making improvements to its facilities to ensure a comfortable and pleasant stay for all skiers.
Pas de la Casa inaugurates a new multifunctional building, the 2,222 Costa Rodona, with ski lockers and 230 lockers.
In the 3 Grandvalira snowparks, up to 8 modules have been added and 2 more have been improved. This gives freestyle lovers a new inventive way to enjoy their favourite discipline.
It also offers renewed proposals for families at the Pas de la Casa and Cortals children’s school, with improved circuits, and at the Kids Forest in Pas de la Casa, where a new circuit with more modules and play elements suitable for children has been opened. For its part, Soldeu has refurbished the nursery and has also extended its crèche.
