Grandvalira School Ski Trips
Andorra's Largest Linked Ski Area

Andorra skiing trips are excellent for schools offering great value skiing, outstanding ski schools, varied ski areas and tax free shopping!

The area of Grandvalira offers 110 pistes in total with high altitude skiing between 1300 and 2640 meters with an excellent snow record. The resort of Pas de la Casa is a lively resort only a few hundred meters from the French border. It was the first of the Andorran ski resorts dating back to 1957. Since then the area has seen huge investment and has grown to incorporate a further five villages. At the highest point of the ski resort is a beautiful panoramic view of the whole Grandvalira domain. The skiing here is comprehensive; it offers something for all ability students, although intermediates and beginners are probably best catered for.
