The recent snowfalls allow Grandvalira Resorts to expand the skiable offer to over 220 km of slopes

Grandvalira will offer more than 135 km of skiable terrain with depths of up to 80 centimetres starting this Saturday, with favourable weather forecasts.

Pal Arinsal will open 88% of the slopes and 97% of the facilities, with maximum snow depths of 70 centimetres of powder ensuring the best conditions of the winter so far.

Ordino Arcalís will have 93% of the slopes open and depths of up to 110 cm thanks to the 70 cm of new snow received in recent days.

Grandvalira Resorts have received up to 70 centimetres of new snow accumulated between the end of last week and this week, allowing an expansion of the skiable offer. Additionally, along with the low temperatures, which have been very favourable in recent days for snowmaking, the domains plan to continue expanding the available slopes. Thus, Grandvalira Resorts' ski resorts will offer a total of over 220 skiable kilometres starting this Saturday, January 13, a day with favourable weather forecasts that promise the best conditions of the season so far. Of these 220 skiable kilometres, 135 km correspond to Grandvalira, which will have more than 90 open slopes and snow depths of up to 80 centimetres of powder, including the Avet slope in Soldeu, which will host the Women's Alpine Ski World Cup on February 10 and 11. It is also worth noting that the Tubs slope and the La Solana chairlift in Pas de la Casa will be available starting today for night skiing and will open until 8 p.m. from Thursdays to Saturdays during January, provided that weather conditions permit. In this regard, it should be remembered that all day, multi-day, season, and Plus+ ski passes are valid for access to the night skiing slope, except for the pedestrian pass.

Pal Arinsal, on the other hand, has greatly benefited from the recent snowfall and will have 88% of the slopes open from this Saturday, equivalent to around 55 skiable kilometres out of the total 63 of the station, with snow depths of up to 70 centimetres of powder. Additionally, the La Massana station will have 97% of the operational lifts, including the cable car that connects both sectors, as well as the new Port Negre chairlift in Arinsal, the main novelty of the season that was inaugurated in mid-December.

Finally, Ordino Arcalís will be almost 100% operational from Saturday thanks to the more than 70 centimetres of new snow it has received. Specifically, it will have 93% of the slopes open and 82% of the operational lifts, equivalent to more than 27 skiable kilometres, with snow depths of up to 110 centimetres of powder.

The recent snowfalls in recent days, combined with the high volume of reservations until the end of the season, augur very good prospects for Grandvalira Resorts' ski resorts, both in terms of visitors from international markets and those from nearby regions.

Plus+ Pass

One of the most chosen options for skiing during the holiday periods of January and February in Grandvalira Resorts is the Plus+ Pass, which allows skiing in all three domains with a single pass and a pay-as-you-go system. It is a pass highly sought after by those who want to ski at Grandvalira, Pal Arinsal, or Ordino Arcalís on different days without going through the ticket office, whether consecutive or not, as it offers a 15% discount on the ticket price from the second day onwards, among other benefits that can be consulted on the website.

Start of International Competitions

With these snowfalls received in recent days, Grandvalira Resorts' ski resorts face the coming months with optimism, highlighting the celebration of major sporting events. Pal Arinsal will kick off the competition season with the Spain Cup and Andorra Cup of ski mountaineering this weekend, serving as the prelude to the ISMF Comapedrosa Andorra World Cup from January 19 to 21. Subsequently, Ordino Arcalís will host the 32nd edition of the Borrufa Trophy from January 22 to 25, and then prepare for a new stage of the Freeride World Tour from February 1 to 7. Finally, Grandvalira will host the Women's Alpine Ski World Cup Audi FIS Ski World Cup on February 10 and 11, as well as the Speed Skiing World Cup from March 12 to 15.
