Grandvalira is expanding its range of activities with Skiguiding. This is a service with an exclusive guide to get to know every corner of the resort. It can be done both skiing and snowboarding. You can choose between two levels: the high level, where you ski down red and black slopes, and the medium level, where you discover Grandvalira on blue and red trails. A medium, medium-high level of skiing is required.
Improvement work on the slopes
Grandvalira stands out for the work it is carrying out to improve its slopes on an ongoing basis to make them better and more accessible. This season, the Cortalet piste in the Encamp sector has been improved to make it easier for beginner skiers. The Port del Pas de la Casa piste has been improved to improve access to the Pas de la Casa sector. The Camí de Pessons piste area has been upgraded to a blue piste.

Two new ski mountaineering circuits have been created: Solana del Forn and Els Maians, which allow you to reach the 4 highest points of Canillo, Soldeu and El Tarter. The signposting of the 5 existing routes has also been improved. The Soldeu and El Tarter sectors now have 22 km of circuits with a difference in altitude of 4,500 metres.
There are also 5 new snowshoe routes, which, added to the 3 existing ones, make a total of 850 km. and 850 m. of vertical drop, making it possible to do a circular route.
