Mountain skiing in Andorra

Ski mountaineering can also be enjoyed in Grandvalira. As an alternative to alpine skiing, you'll find various itineraries in all sectors during resort opening hours. If you prefer, we have qualified mountain guides with whom you can discover Andorra's wildest landscapes.

Mountain Pass

The Mountain Pass season pass makes it possible to access the trails set up for these sports and to use certain lifts, with one ascent and one descent per day and lift.

  • At Ordino Arcalís, the Tristaina gondola.
  • At Pal Arinsal, the La Massana gondola, Els Orriols gondola in Arinsal, Arinsal-Pal cable car, La Tossa ski lift and the Pla de la Cot conveyor belt.   
  • At Grandvalira, these lifts are the Canillo gondola, the El Tarter gondola, the Soldeu gondola, the Els Pioners gondola (Pas de la Casa), the Funicamp, the Montmalús surface lift and the Xavi chairlift.

The Mountain Pass also includes first-aid service and transfer to the resort’s medical centre in case of accidents on the trails and slopes set up for these sports.

The pass also provides access to resort lifts operating during the 2023 summer months.
