GRANDVALIRA: Pas de la Casa, Grau-Roig, Soldeu, El Tarter, Canillo, Encamp | Altitud: 1710 - 2640 mts

The ski area of Grandvalira is the largest skiable domain in the Pyrenees and, since expanding slightly in 2011 and again in 2012, it now offers 200 kilometers of linked runs streching from Pas de la Casa by the French border all the way across to Encamp, taking in Grau Roig, Soldeu, El Tarter and Canillo along the way.
Grandvalira was originally formed in the 2003-04 season which saw Soldeu & El Tarter merge with Pas de la Casa & Grau Roig.
There has also been large investment in new lifts and snow cannons, so Grandvalira now offers world class facilities.

In 2012 Grandvalira Soldeu hosted World Cup ski racing as well as numerous Freestyle events.

There is an empahasis on the whole holiday experience, offering seven schools catering for all levels of skiers and snowboarders, along with numerous activities on and off the mountain so that you can enjoy your mountain holiday even if you're not a skier.
