GRANDVALIRA LIFT PASSES:  SET/CANILLO SECTORS

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

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.

Inexpensive day-passes, solely for the beginners' zones at El Forn (Canillo sector), El Tarter, Grau Roig or Pas de la Casa are also available;
as are reduced-price ‘Freestyle’ passes covering some principal access lifts/pistes plus the snowparks (at El Tarter, Grau Roig and Pas de la Casa only).

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
If you're a non-skier, but wish to travel up to the mid-station hubs & mountain restaurants, you can purchase a ‘Pedestrian Pass’ for each journey on the Funicamp from Encamp, or for the gondolas from Canillo, El Tarter or Soldeu.

There are no other ski lifts accessible to pedestrians;  to join on-piste companions, the best option is to meet up at one of the mid-station hubs at the top of the gondolas, or at the high-altitude Solanelles restaurants/services complex at the top of the Funicamp, or to travel by bus or taxi to the base station at Grau Roig.
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.

EARLY-BIRD LIFT

‘First Snow’
A great opportunity for the keenest early risers. On selected days (normally at weekends), members of Grandvalira's visitor welcome team accompany small groups of [competent standard] guests on a special early ski lift (08:00hrs) for a whizz around the lower slopes, making first tracks on the freshly groomed pistes before the station officially opens to the public.

A small lift-pass supplement is charged, but you usually get a hot drink and some nibbles included. Places are limited; for further information and to make a booking, please enquire at a Grandvalira lift pass kiosk or at the Adventure Activities Centre on the Espiolets Plateau (Soldeu sector).

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.
