Soldeu Boarding & Freestyle

There’s no restriction on snowboarding within the Grandvalira which is keen to be “cool” and increasingly the authorities are investing to expand and improve the existing snowparks and freestyle circuits.

Already there are 8 freestyle areas - three above Pas de la Casa, two at Grau Roig, another two above Soldeu and the ACG Snowpark above El Tarter. Of these "collibri" on a red run descending from Cortals (2,502m) is probably the most spectacularly positioned but getting up is tediously complex (it's actually easier to get there from Grau).

Alternatively "bordercross solana" is a permanent boardercross freestyle area below Tossal de la Llosada is accessed without too much difficult from Tosa dels Espiolets if you take the "cucut" black run down to the TSF4 Assaladors lift. The circuit includes cambers and jumps so whether on skiing freestyle or boarding you need to be agile and learn to control the speed of your descent which makes it's a good place to practice and sharpen up your skills.

The ACG Snowpark, El Tarter, is exclusively for freestylers with six big jumps, a permanent pipe, rails, including a wave-shaped hand rail, pyramid, two boxes and a kick zone for beginners. Freestyle instructors are on hand to offer advice on how you can better your tricks and jumps and a dedicated maintenance team is in charge daily throughout the season. Not surprisingly given the size and quality of installations the ACG Snowpark is allegedly the best snowpark in the Pyrenees and the venue for a number of high level competitions and exhibition events during the season. Get to it from the Pla de Riba Escorxada by the TK Font Roges or TSD6 Tossa Espiolets.
