Pas De La Casa Ski Area

Pas de la Casa is the northeasternmost point on the Grandvalira and one of six village resorts – Pas de la Casa, Grau Roig, Soldeu, El Tarter, Canillo and Encamp – now connected by means of a common lift pass.

Already the chairlift TSD6 Estanay heads east out of Pas de la Casa into France and the addition of Porte des Neiges across the French border into this 193 km sequence of runs is anticipated soon.

Skiing in Pas de la Casa begins at TSF4 Solana from the top of which it is possible to get to all the other runs in the Grandvalira. If you get to the end and don’t want to ski back, there’s a free ski bus from any point on the Grandvalira all the way back to Pas de la Casa – the bus displays the word “Grandvalira” so you don’t mistake it for the local village transport.

All ski lifts have both a numeric code and a name noted in upper case on the ski map while the ski pistes themselves just have names some of which sound curious to Anglophones “clot”, “muflo”. “llop”, “cucut”, “fagina” and “tubs”) but you quickly get used to them.

From Pas de la Casa you can ski over the Coll Blanc (2,528m) into Grau Roig and back again. Grau Roig is not the most exciting place in the world – it’s basically one hotel and a car park – but you can eat there and if you plan your route cleverly you can take in the two freestyle areas known as “portella” at the top of the button lift Coma Bianca III.
