Often referred to simply as ‘Pas’, and widely regarded as one of Europe’s best-value ski resorts: boasting almost duty-free prices and seamless access from your accommodation into the big-mileage Grandvalira ski area, offering something for everyone in a fun & lively environment. Pas de la Casa was Andorra’s pioneer ski station: founded in 1957, it was the first to install mechanical ski lifts and automatic snowmaking equipment; it is now Andorra’s largest resort, and one of the most popular in the Pyrenees. The slopes funnel directly into the foot of the resort, and the ski area is linked via the neighbouring Grau Roig sector into Soldeu-El Tarter, together forming the bulk of the impressive Grandvalira domain, one of Europe’s largest linked ski area.
Skiing, Shopping, Partying…
Pas de la Casa is integrally complete as a ski station and resort, offering direct access to a huge ski domain and plenty of facilities and off-slope attractions. It’s definitely one of Europe’s liveliest ski destinations, with a wide selection of bars & clubs catering to a ski hard and party hard tourist. Although brash, the resort also has a number of upmarket boutiques and a handful of good quality restaurants and increasing number of quality bars to choose from.
Andorra’s low tax status means this is also possibly the best resort in Europe in which to buy snowsports gear, and there’s a huge selection of rental & retail shops all vying for trade, which helps to keep prices as low as possible.
Accommodation in Pas de la Casa is plentiful and really does offer the full range to suit your taste and your budget. Self Catering apartments are a very popular choice in Pas and these range from basic and economic 1* up to 4* luxe apartments or studios. These are great for groups and those looking to ski hard and party hard on a budget. Hotel accommodation has improved enormously and Pas has a collection of excellent 3* and 4* hotels all within easy reach of the slopes.
