Pas de la Casa Ski Resort

Located at 2100m right on the French border at the eastern end of the Grandvalira ski area, Pas de la Casa is an affordable, snowsure ski town with a real party reputation.

With access to 210km of Grandvalira slopes, Pas de la Casa is an excellent base from which to explore Andorra’s premier ski area. Much of the skiing suits intermediates, but there are also some great beginner facilities and a few challenges for experts. Lots of the resort’s visitors come here to party and for good reason – the après ski here is Andorra’s best and certainly rivals many of the major alpine party destinations.

The Ski Club have a Rep stationed in neighbouring Soldeu throughout the winter, so why not join them for a beer after a long day on the slopes?

Pros

Very snowsure – the resort sits at 2100m

Access to the extensive Grandvalira ski area

Extremely good après ski scene, the best in Andorra

Cons

Limited opportunities for advanced and expert skiers

Families may find the après ski a little too rowdy

Village is not the prettiest

Pas de la Casa Skiing and Snowboarding

Immediately above the resort lies a very good beginner area at Abelettes, accessed via a gondola from the village. Some longer blues are then on offer for progression, but these can get busy at weekends and getting across towards the rest of the Grandvalira area usually requires taking red runs. But these same runs are ideal for intermediates, who will love the wide open pistes and the sense of travel across the 210km network of slopes.

Advanced and expert challenges are slightly limited, but arguably the entire area’s best black runs are located just above Pas de la Casa, served by the Costa Rodona and Antenes chairlifts. In fresh snow there is some decent off piste, but if you’re in Andorra, the steep terrain in the Vallnord ski area above Arcalis is better.

Pas de la Casa Resort

Pas is known as Andorra's wildest party resort – a well deserved reputation as there are a huge number of après ski bars and nightclubs to choose from considering its size. It's a more affordable resort than Soldeu and is thus better suited for groups and younger visitors rather than families. The tax-free shopping extends to great prices on food and drink, as well as a range of affordable accommodation options.

The only downside is that the resort is not the most attractive, with purpose-built apartment blocks dominating the skyline. However, there are alternative accommodation options including neighbouring Grau Roig, which provides doorstop access to the Grandvalira slopes and is appreciably quieter.

How to get to Pas de la Casa

Toulouse airport to the north and Barcelona airport to the south are the nearest to Andorra, both of which lie around three hours away. Hiring a car is the best option.

  • Barcelona airport: 3 hours
  • Toulouse airport: 3 hours
  • Calais: approximately 13 hours driving (700 miles)
