GRANDVALIRA LIFT PASSES:  PAS-GRAU/ENCAMP SECTORS

Ski Pass Options
Except for beginners' day-passes and restricted-area ‘Freestyle’ snowpark passes, all other standard lift passes are full Grandvalira area passes: covering all sectors at Pas de la Casa-Grau Roig (including the cable car from Encamp), plus all sectors at Soldeu-El Tarter & Canillo.

Area passes are available for children (6–11 years old), youths (12–17 years old) and adults (18–64 years old):

Half-day  13:00hrs–close;
Full-day  and multiples thereof
(the longer the duration, the cheaper the equivalent daily rate);
Full Season  covering the entire winter season for the whole Grandvalira domain; and
Yearly  covering both the full winter & summer seasons.

Cheaper day-passes for the beginners' zones at either Pas de la Casa, Grau Roig, El Tarter and El Forn (Canillo sector) are also available;
as are special reduced-price ‘Freestyle’ passes covering a restricted number of principal access lifts/pistes + the snowparks (valid only at Pas de la Casa, Grau Roig and El Tarter).

Passes are free-of-charge for children under 6; prices for 6–11 year olds are approx. 25 per cent cheaper than those for adults; those for 12–17 year olds are approx. 12.5 per cent cheaper than those for adults.
Passes for guests aged 65–70 years old are available at a much reduced daily rate; passes are free for the over 70s.

A photo is required only for individual passes with more than four day's duration. Proof of age is required at the time of purchase for age-related discounted passes.
Pedestrian Passes
Unfortunately, for non-skiers, the ski lifts at Pas de la Casa & Grau Roig are not accessible by pedestrians. Non-skiers who wish to reach the mid-station hubs & mountain restaurants can purchase a ‘Pedestrian Pass’ for the Funicamp cable car from the town of Encamp, or for the gondolas from the villages of Canillo, El Tarter or Soldeu, but they first need to take a bus or taxi to reach those other resorts; likewise for the return journey to Pas de la Casa.

To join on-piste companions in another sector for the day, the simplest option for non-skiers is to travel by taxi to the base station at Grau Roig. Otherwise, arrange to meet up at one of the mid-station hubs at the top of the gondolas in the other resorts, or at the high-altitude Solanelles restaurants/services complex at the top of the Funicamp.
Further information for non-skiers is given in our Alternative Activities chapter.
Seasonal Pricing Periods
Lift pass prices are up to 20 per cent cheaper during off-peak dates.
High Season  Every weekend; the week leading up to Christmas until the week after New Year; almost all of February; and Easter.
Off-peak  Covers all other dates during the winter season.

HANDS-FREE SKI PASS

Ease-of-use
Grandvalira passes are hands-free: the ski lift turnstiles detect them remotely and operate automatically; for best results, place them [securely] in a lefthand pocket. Enhanced passcards are also available (deposit required), which can be recharged on future visits or returned to any Grandvalira lift pass kiosk for deposit refund.

SKI ANDORRA

National Lift Pass
A good option for those with their own transport.
The Ski Andorra Ski Pass permits access to all of Andorra's ski areas.
Please consult our Ski Andorra page for full details.
