The base station building houses a multi-storey car park, equipment hire shops, exhibition gallery, medical centre, Fun Food restaurant & Espress'Oh! café, lockers, Grandvalira information desk & lift pass kiosks, as well as administration offices for Grandvalira's parent company. The gondola platforms are on the uppermost floor, accessible by lift and/or escalator.
at the upper terminal at El Forn, you walk straight out on to the top of the slopes: all on-piste services & catering facilities for this sector are also on this level, housed in the buildings sweeping round from the gondola area and over to the looker's ahead-right, overlooking the pistes.
The fixed 4-seater Junior chairlift arrives close to this [upper] gondola terminal, with the nearest pistes running parallel down each side of the chairlift to its base terminal below. The Portella chairlift
, linking towards the neighbouring El Tarter sector, is also at the base of these central slopes.
If you miss the last link-lift back from the other sectors, don't panic! Descend to the nearest village base station to get a bus or taxi back to Canillo.
