The countdown to skiing in Grandvalira begins! Coinciding with the first weekend of December, Friday 4 is the day scheduled to officially launch the 2020/21 ski season.Take note: we tell you everything you need to know to come skiing safely and where to stay in Andorra.
Enjoy skiing in the largest ski domain of the Pyrenees
Grandvalira and Ordino-Arcalís are expected to be entirely open. Since last year, they have been part of the same resort and are included in the same ski pass. You will be able to ski every day in a different sector!
We suggest you to start in El Peretol sector with entrance just in front of Els Llacs Mountain Apartments, located in Bordes de Envalira (Soldeu).
Anti-covid measures on the slopes for safe skiing
After a season that ended abruptly, this year the ski slopes will open again adopting new safety and hygiene anti-covid standards. Here is a summary of the most important points:
As in all Andorra, the use of the mask is compulsory both in closed spaces and on the public road, although it is not compulsory during the descents. However, it is recommended to keep the mask or an approved buffer on.
Grandvalira does not contemplate limiting the capacity of the slopes or ski lifts, but it does contemplate doing so in closed spaces, such as restaurants, shops or ski schools to guarantee a minimum distance of 1.5 metres.
In addition, the cable cars will be disinfected with a photocatalytic system to eliminate viruses and bacteria from all surfaces. There will also be disinfectant gel points in boarding areas, restaurants and resort buildings.
Ski and snowboard schools have also adapted their protocols and workers will be tested regularly.
So, feel secure!
Grandvalira is adapted with preventive measures so that you can ski with the usual safety.
A December in the snow without skis
If you don’t like skiing or want to combine your skiing days with other activities in the snow, you’re in the right place. In Grandvalira you will also find an endless number of activities to enjoy the snow with the whole family. From excursions to discover snowy landscapes, with snowshoes, mushing (dog sledge) or with cross country skis. Even the most fun activities such as the Snake Gliss.
Who says you can’ t go down a ski slope if you don’ t ski or snowboard? You can with the articulated sleds in the Soldeu sector. Another outstanding activity is the zip line that flies over Lake Forn, where you can jump in a seated position, horizontally or in tandem with your child.
You will surely want to try them all!
