Grandvalira ski touring
Ski touring is another one of our disciplines. Grandvalira currently boasts eight signposted circuits, which are free of charge and have been adapted to suit all levels of technical and physical aptitude. The circuits comply with all safety regulations and allow ski touring to take place alongside alpine skiing.
This season sees the opening of the first circuit in Pas de la Casa, incorporating a trip through the Isards area. Those wishing to try out this discipline, which has an increasing number of devotees at the resort, may do so provided they have an intermediate level of proficiency. The new circuit is comprehensively signposted and meets all safety conditions, as do the other five circuits that can be found in Grandvalira: four in the Grau Roig sector and one in the El Tarter sector.
