Until 1953 simply an area impassable in winter due to snow is now the bustling frontier town of Pas de la Casa. At 2050m Pas de la Casa ranks as the highest city in Europe enticing tourists through its duty free status who throng the streets stocking up on spirits, cigarettes, perfumes and electrical goods as well as good quality ski and snowboard gear at excellent prices.

Pas de la Casa became Andorra’s first ski resort in 1957. Built by Francesc Viladomat, the ski champion of Spain, it now forms part of Grand Valira, the largest ski domain in the Pyrenees. Novices will enjoy the wide, flowing pistes and benefit from the high standard of tuition from English speaking instructors, many of whom are of British or commonwealth nationality. The sheer numbers of beginner and second weekers in Pas de la Casa ensures that there is no elitist attitude here common in some Alpine resorts which help novices to relax and enjoy the whole ski experience. Intermediates can take advantage of the full Grand Valira domain automatically included in any ski pass longer than 2 day’s duration and the recently improved snowpark is designed specifically for the beginner and intermediate rider.

At lunch times the terraces of the hotels and restaurants heave with people enjoying the midday sun and the excellent value meals whilst at night the many bars and nightclubs come alive with predominately young, English speaking partygoers.

Grau Roig (pronounced Grau Roash) is a much smaller ski station situated the other side of the Envalira pass from Pas de la Casa. The area has a more Spanish feel and although smaller still provides all the facilities you may need from equipment shops to bars, restaurants and accommodation. It is also home to the Pic Blanc chair lift providing access to the highest point in the Grandvalira ski domain.
