Pas de la Casa Ski Resort Review

Pas de la Casa is a purpose-built ski resort on the French border at the foot of the largest ski area in Andorra, a collection of concrete box style apartment blocks and hotels, with most accommodation conveniently placed near the main slopes

The lift system extends from Pas de La Casa over the three adjacent valleys. The furthest from Pas has nothing but a lift station, but in the attractively wooded middle one is Grau Roig, which acts as the access point for day visitors arriving by road, it also makes a good base.

The local pistes are on a high, treeless, north/south ridge, with Pas de la Casa on the east side and Grau Roig on the west. South of Grau Roig, is Mont Malus, a small tree covered area with a drag lift, two reds and one black tree lined pistes. To the west of Grau Roig, a quad chair goes up to a ridge from which pistes lead into the next valley and lifts from there up to the Colada d'Enradort (2447m) and the Funicamp top station - connected to the village of Encamp by a 6km gondola. There is now 6km of unmarked off-piste which runs down to the mid-station gondola. The link to Soldeu also starts here, although a separate ski pass is needed.

Advanced Skiing

Expert skiers will find little to challenge them, but the black pistes heading back to the resort, including the Salom, are of a steep pitch and can be bumpy. The black run down from the top of the Mont Malus drag can be good.

Intermediates Skiing

Intermediates will fair better, with plenty of top-to-bottom reds and blues on the main ridge.
