OPTIONS FOR NON-SKIERS

Access for Non-Skiers
Non-skiers who wish to travel up to the restaurants, services & activities areas at the top of the gondolas (from Canillo, El Tarter or Soldeu) can do so by purchasing a ‘pedestrian pass’ for those lifts.

Each ticket permits one return journey. There are no other pedestrian-accessible lifts within the ski areas beyond the gondolas' upper terminals, but the views from these mid-level service areas are superb and the facilities are good; it is also easy for your on-piste companions to meet up with you there.

Some of the alternative activities on offer are accessible using pedestrian passes; some are even accessible without requiring any lift pass purchase.

Another option for meeting up with friends on the slopes is to take a bus or taxi to Grau Roig:  there are two day-lodge buildings at the busy base area (both easily accessible on foot from the bus stop and the car parks), housing a handful of bars, restaurants and shops; there is also another Adventure Activities Centre based at Grau Roig, offering a further selection of alternative activities (please consult the Ski-Ride Resort Guide to Pas de la Casa-Grau Roig for full details).

HIGH ALTITUDE ACCESS

Breathtaking Views
The Funicamp cable car from Encamp is also an excellent option for pedestrians.
Its top station is perched on the high-altitude Collada d'Enradort ridge at 2447 m (8028 ft): the restaurant & facilities there are excellent and the views are amazing.

You'll need to travel to Encamp (and back again) to use this lift, but it's only 12 km (7½ miles) by road from Soldeu.
