Grandvalira Resorts will offer more than 150 skiable kilometers for the festive Christmas dates that have just started and will have all connections between the different operating sectors, said today in a statement. The extensive work carried out by the terrain teams, combined with the drop in temperature, has made it possible to expand the ski offer in the regions of Andorra, where skiers will be able to find one of the best conditions in the Pyrenees at the moment. In this way, Grandvalira will have 90 km of connected ski slopes, so you can ski from Pas de la Casa to Canillo, passing through Grau Roig, Soldeu and El Tarter, Pal Arinsal will provide 40 km and the connection between the two sectors through the cable car will be operated, and Ordino Arcalís will provide distance 23 kilometers for skiers.
In addition, the resorts hope temperatures will be suitable for snow production for a few days, so that the skiable area can be expanded over the Christmas holiday, weather permitting. One of the tracks that is undergoing intense work to be able to open as soon as conditions are available is the legendary Avet track, which is being prepared for the big event on February 10 and 11, with the Women’s Alpine Skiing World Cup. Likewise, it should be noted that one of the areas that has already been enabled since Saturday is the Port Negre Darinsal area, with the new chairlift, the great novelty of the season at the Massana Resort.
It must be remembered that the beginner areas at the three stations have ideal snow conditions, which provides an excellent opportunity for beginner skiers who want to start practicing snow sports. In this sense, the ski schools in the Grandvalira resorts are fully operational offering their educational services, whether in skiing, snowboarding, freestyle or freestyle. Also, this global offer of the country planned for the Christmas holidays can be enjoyed with the only Andorra Pass, which allows you to ski randomly in all areas: Grandvalira, Pal Arinsal and Ordino Arcalís.
