Here it is – the last snow report of winter 2018/19! It’s been a great season which will be long remembered for the success of the high profile events which have taken place in Grandvalira, such as the FIS World Cup Finals in Soldeu & El Tarter (11th-17th March), the Total Fight Masters of Freestyle Competition in El Tarter Snow Park (28th March – 6th April), and finally the FIS Speed Skiing World Cup Finals on the black Riberal slope in Grau Roig (10th – 13th April).

It’s been a genuine honour to be a part of the community of skiers and snowboarders who have turned out to watch these events, especially the prestigious FIS World Cup Finals which will be remembered in the history of Grandvalira for many years to come.

Thanks to snowfall in previous weeks we’ve been able to enjoy the mountain right until the very end of the season. Currently there’s still 107 out of 129 slopes open across the ski domain – that’s 189 kilometres out of a total 210 kilometres!

The conditions today have been typically Spring-like, characterised by soft, slushy snow and mild temperatures. The consistency of the snow was wet but forgiving and fun, rather than sticky or grabby. As the morning progressed the slopes started to get a little choppy and slushier, but the runs at higher altitude were generally a little firmer. Some slopes are starting to get a little patchy as the mild temperatures have begun to melt the snow, but any rocky or unsafe areas have been cordoned off.

Hundreds of people have come to Grandvalira to enjoy their Easter Weekend in the mountains, however there was still plenty of piste to go around and no queues for the chairlifts. Even the Serrat de Pinos run, fondly by locals known as the ‘motorway’ was super quiet, despite this being the main run which connects the Grau Roig and Soldeu sectors.

The temperature is expected to drop below zero tonight, with approximately six centimetres of snow forecast overnight, and another five centimetres on Monday, the last day of the season. Could we be in for a couple more powder days I wonder!? We’ll have to wait and see, but either way we’ll be finishing the season on a high with lots of fond memories to keep us going until we can return to the snowy Pyrenees mountains once again.

From myself and the rest of the in-resort team – thank you, and we hope to see you again next season!

This time next week we’ll sadly be saying goodbye to what’s been another great winter here in Grandvalira. The snowfall of recent weeks came just at the right time, topping up the coverage on the slopes and giving us some fantastic powder days to remember. The fact that there’s currently 192 kilometres open across the ski domain (out of a total 210 kilometres) is testament to Grandvalira’s snow maintenance work throughout the season combined with the impact of the recent snowfall.

It was raining a little in Pas de la Casa last night, so I wasn’t surprised to find that the slopes felt slow and sticky this morning. Despite the dark clouds and lack of sunshine today the air temperature was pretty mild at around 8 degrees, which unfortunately didn’t help to improve the snow consistency. The visibility was good for most of the day, however the terrain ahead was difficult to judge at times due to the combination of bright light and clouds which casted a flat white light onto the slopes.

The conditions today contrast heavily with Friday, when we spent all day making fresh tracks across Grau Roig and Pas de la Casa under a beautiful clear blue sky. The video from Friday is now live, and you can watch it on Facebook, or on our videos page.

The grabby quality of the snow made for a challenging ride today, but it’s likely we’ll see the consistency of the snow improve tomorrow as the temperature is forecast to drop below zero again, with light snowfall on its way. If you’re heading up the mountain this week, make the most of every minute, enjoy the quiet pistes and take a moment to enjoy being surrounded by the beauty of Grandvalira.

The conditions in Grandvalira are outstanding right now. Over the last two weeks we’ve received a consistent, healthy level of snowfall which has increased the overall coverage on the slopes to an excellent standard.

Last night alone we received another 14 centimetres of snow, so I had a good feeling I’d be in for a treat today. I wasn’t disappointed. The snow conditions were flawless, with lots of soft, fast, fresh powder both on and off the pistes. The slopes were super quiet and, better yet, the sun was shining all day, providing perfect visibility and picture-perfect weather for relaxing on the terrace at lunchtime.

My favourite run of the day was the black ‘FIS’ run which leads you from top to bottom of the Costa Rodona chairlift in Pas de la Casa. It’s a steep, straight run often used for high level competitions and slalom races, so it’s not somewhere I’d usually ride, however today the conditions on FIS looked too good to resist. I wasn’t wrong either – the coverage on FIS was fantastic with large sections of soft, deep, fluffy powder – some of which were still untouched even at midday. The steep vertical drop of this run can be challenging even for experienced skiers and snowboarders, but today’s soft powdery conditions meant that it was actually a lot of fun to ride.

After a couple of laps on the FIS black run, we ventured towards Grau Roig where there were plenty more amazing off-piste opportunities. The best off-piste riding today was in a freeride area known locally as the ‘Fields of Joy’ which is accessible via the blue Port run and eventually leads you down the road from Grau Roig car park. The snow here was unbelievable – completely untouched, light, and easy to manoeuvre in. The Fields of Joy are relatively unknown by visitors as there isn’t a clear route unless you’re familiar with the area or are with a qualified guide; plus the exit involves some fairly technical riding through the trees, and a ten minute walk along the road back to the Antennes chairlift.  

If you’re in Grau Roig tomorrow, look out for the Speed Skiing World Cup Finals which are taking place on the black Riberal slope. Riberal is 900 metres long, featuring a tower which is 10 metres high and 18 metres wide, allowing skiers to reach speeds of around 200 kilometres per hour. You can watch the finals from the base of Riberal, or from the seats of the Antennes chairlift.

It’s hard to believe it’s April. This time of the season is usually characterised by spring conditions – blue sky, sunshine and mild temperatures, but instead we’ve been plunged back into the depths of winter and the snow has been falling intermittently over the last week or so… Not that I’m complaining, of course! After all, we’ve had our fair share of clear sunny days already this season, so the fresh snow and powder days are very much welcome.

It’s only thirteen days until the season comes to an end in Grandvalira, however the coverage on the slopes is fantastic, and the snow depth has improved just enough over the last week that we’ve been able to ride some of our favourite off-piste areas again.

This morning’s snowfall was wet in consistency which made the slopes felt a little slow and sticky today, especially compared to yesterday when the pistes were soft, grippy, and fast with a decent top layer of sugary snow. The snow was wet, compact and creaked a little today, but the slopes weren’t hard or icy so were still enjoyable to ride. Fresh snowfall is forecast overnight tonight and throughout the day tomorrow, so providing the temperature stays well below zero, it’s likely that the snow will be more fun to ride from tomorrow.

The visibility varied throughout the day due to the low clouds and intermittent flat white light. In low light conditions it can be difficult to read the terrain ahead, but if you relax, bend your knees and trust your skis you’ll be fine.

My favourite run of the day was the blue Enllac run which links Soldeu and Grau Roig valleys. Enllac starts off as a relatively narrow track which bends around to the right, revealing impressive mountain peaks and the steep face of Pic Cubil. Today the views were even more dramatic than usual due to the thick, grey, low snow clouds which were gradually rolling into the valley.

If you’re coming to Grandvalira this week, make sure you bring plenty of warm clothing as the temperature is forecast to remain below zero and the snow is expected to continue, with a brief break towards the end of the week.

The snow returned to Grandvalira this week, topping up the coverage on the pistes by approximately 20 centimetres. Yesterday we had a great time smashing the fresh powder on and off the piste under the clear blue sky and sunshine but today we had to contend with relatively hostile conditions, reminding us of how changeable the weather in the mountains can be.

Today’s conditions can be described simply in three words – white, windy and cold. Strong winds of around 30-40 kilometres an hour blew snow across the pistes and into our faces, reducing the visibility and revealing sections of very hard compact snow underneath. Meanwhile, the combination of bright light and thick cloud casted a flat white light on the slopes, making it difficult to judge the terrain ahead.

Despite the recent snowfall, the coverage on the pistes was variable due to the strong winds - some sections the slopes were still covered with a lovely, soft layer of powder, whilst others were windblown and scratchy. At 2590 metres above sea level, the top of the Pic Blanc and Font Negre chairlifts were particularly windblown due to their high, exposed position, but the conditions improved as I turned out of the wind to ride down the face of Pas de la Casa towards resort.

Taking note of the conditions, I decided it was best to stay local within the Pas de la Casa sector and stick to the runs which are at a lower altitude and more sheltered from the harsh elements. For this reason I took a diversion down the blue Tubs run which is more gentle and predictable than the red Directa run which is quite steep in places with a number of rolling hills. Tubs is a relatively short run from the top of the Solana chairlift but it’s a safe bet in hostile conditions like today, plus, it provides a comfortable environment for building your confidence in low visibility due to its gentle descent and close proximity to resort.

The beginner’s area in Pas de la Casa is another good option on windy, low visibility days as its usually well-sheltered by the surrounding mountains. You can choose from super flat runs like Pista Escola (green run) and Pista Pioneers (blue run), or you can take the TK Pic Negre 1 drag lift to the top of the longer, slightly steeper blue Isards run which leads you all the way back to the Coll D’Isards chairlift. If you’re an intermediate rider you’ll probably find these runs super easy, however if you’re up for a challenge why not practice riding a bit of switch or freestyle tricks?  

At the moment, more snowfall is forecast from tomorrow and beyond the weekend. 18 centimetres is expected to fall tomorrow alone! If you’re heading up the mountain, make sure you wrap up warm as the temperature is forecast to remain well below zero, with lows of -6 degrees and a windchill of -10 degrees. I’d recommend wearing a neck buff to protect your face from the wind and snow, meanwhile orange-lensed goggles are definitely a good shout in low visibility conditions.

There’s only 20 days left of the ski season in Grandvalira, however it looks like winter isn’t ready to let go just yet. Pas de la Casa has been shrouded in a thick white cloud all day and the snow has started fall lightly on the mountain and in resort. The consistency of the snowfall is currently wet and sleety but should improve and become finer as the temperature drops below zero this evening.  

The combination of bright light, clouds and snowfall reduced the visibility on the mountain - the light has been flat, making it difficult to judge the terrain ahead, and on the face of Pas de la Casa you could only see approximately 20metres ahead of you. On the other side of the valley in Grandvalira-Grau Roig the visibility was slightly better due to its lower altitude – the light here was still flat but the clouds weren’t as low, so navigating the way down the mountain was much easier.

It may seem easier said than done, but one of the best things to do when riding in low visibility is to relax - take your time and remember to bend your knees and keep them flexible so you can adjust easily to any unexpected terrain. Stay close to the piste markers as these will guide you in the right direction down the slopes and stick with your ski/snowboarding buddies so that no one gets lost or left behind.  

The conditions of the snow today were variable – for example, the top section of the Pista Llarga run felt quite hard with a few patchy areas but towards the end the snow became soft and forgiving. Meanwhile, the snow on the red Directa run in Pas de la Casa felt good all round but the lack of visibility meant it was necessary to ride the piste with caution. If the forecast is accurate, there’ll be more snowfall tomorrow and at the weekend, so we can expect to see the coverage on the pistes improve across Grandvalira. Whether we’re in for a light dusting or full on powder day is yet to be revealed, however as always I’ll keep my fingers crossed and hope for the best!

It’s been a bitter cold day in Grandvalira today thanks to the strong winds which relentlessly blew through the valleys, numbing my face and fingers without mercy. 

As a result, I decided to head to Grau Roig where many of the runs are well protected by the surrounding mountains and trees. 

On windy days like today, the Camí des Pessons and Montmallus red runs are usually good options as the pistes are secluded and sheltered by the trees. Plus, if you’re cold you can always stop by the beautiful Llac de Pessons restaurant to warm up with a mug of hot chocolate or if you’re really cold, a cup of mulled wine. 

This morning the pistes were hard and compact but grippy enough to practice some carving. In some places the solid corduroy lines sent shockwaves up my legs but by afternoon the sun began to soften the pistes, making the snow more playful and forgiving.

The best snow conditions were on the runs coming down the face of Pas de la Casa, such as the red Directa and blue Tubs runs. The coverage on these slopes were smooth and even, and the consistency of the snow was nice and grippy. The only problem was... you guessed it... the cold wind blowing directly into my face as I rode down the mountain. Luckily the sun has been shining all day so it’s at least been warm at the base of the slopes and in resort. 

Another clear, sunny day is forecast for tomorrow but the temperature will remain cold with highs of 1 degree, lows of -1 degree and a wind chill of -6 degrees. If you’re heading up the mountain wear a decent long sleeved layer under your jacket and don’t forget your neck buff!

What a beautiful day in Grandvalira! The bitter cold weather we experienced at the start of the week has given way to milder temperatures (around 3 degrees) and a cool, light breeze. The snow clouds have once again subsided, and we’ve been enjoying another day of glorious sunshine and blue sky.

One of the great things about Grandvalira is the number of mountain terraces to choose from. Coll Blanc (Pas de la Casa sector), Llac de Pessons restaurant (Grau Roig sector) and Colibri snack bar (Funicamp sector) are just a few of my favourite spots for taking a pit stop to rehydrate and soak up the sunshine on mild days like today.

The conditions on the slopes are excellent thanks to Tuesday’s snowfall and the snow cannons which have been helping to top up the coverage. The consistency of the snow is light, soft, and forgiving – a great combination for practicing some carving and riding with confidence.

Eager to take advantage of the fresh snowfall, we’ve spent the last few days exploring off-piste in Grandvalira. Most of terrain is tracked now, but there’s still some lovely sweet spots in between the pistes. From the Portella T-bar drag lift in can see the zig-zag track of skiiers who have skinned their way up into the craggy peaks of Grau Roig and have carved some exciting yet daunting looking lines through the steep, rocky couloir.

This afternoon we took a steep fifteen minute walk up Pic del Maia, where the most incredible powder bowl awaits on the other side. This area of freeride is known by locals as the ‘Gas-o-Pas’ run due to its location opposite the Elf petrol station by the blue Port run in Pas de la Casa, and the views from the top are breath-taking; all you can see for miles is the snow-capped mountains of the Pyrenees. Even a few days after the snowfall, the ride down to the road was fantastic as we weaved our way down the mountain, leaving fresh lines in the soft snow. Of course, off-piste and freeriding are not without dangers, so it’s important that you only attempt this if you’re with an experienced, qualified guide (bookable via Grandvalira). Plan your trip, take account of the weather forecast and avalanche risk, and take the necessary avalanche safety equipment where required.

The weather is forecast to remain mild over the weekend but light snowfall is on the radar, so keep your eye on the forecast and your fingers crossed for some more spring snow!

Winter is back! The mild temperatures of recent weeks might have fooled you into thinking that Spring had set in, however snowfall returned to the valleys of Grandvalira overnight and throughout today, bringing bitter cold temperatures (highs of -6 degrees) and a wind chill of -14 degrees. The weather was so cold it hurt my teeth to smile but the slight discomfort was overridden by my delight at the sight of soft snowflakes falling from the sky once again.

Approximately six centimetres of snow has fallen and settled on the slopes, and although this may not sound that much, it’s certainly enough to make for a fun ride. The consistency of the snow was light and soft, and in most places my snowboard glided silently and effortlessly down the pistes. Grandvalira took advantage of the cold temperatures and were blasting soft, sugary snow from the cannons onto the pistes, adding to the coverage already gifted by Mother Nature today.

Feeling energised and excited by the snowfall, we ventured further afield towards Canillo, where the blue Rossinyol run was waiting. The Rossinyol is my favourite blue run in Grandvalira due to its variety of terrain which has lots of fun twists, turns and rolling hills. As usual, Rossinyol didn’t disappoint. The snow coverage was great and the slope was so quiet due to its secluded location within the Grandvalira ski domain. From Pas de la Casa, it takes around 45 minutes to get to Canillo, but the adventure is well worth the journey. The most direct way of getting to the Rossinyol run is by taking the Pas de la Casa Chairlift and riding to the bottom of Grau Roig. Here, you need to take the Cubil chairlift and then take the Serrat Pinos red run with the rolling hills to the Pla de les Pedres Soldeu chairlift. From the top of Pla de les Pedres lift, take the blue Obac Solana run into Soldeu valley and take the Assaladores chairlift. From here, you’ll need to take the blue Orenta run to El Clots chairlift, and voila – you’re at the top of Rossinyol! All you need to do now is relax into your skis and enjoy the ride and breath-taking scenery!

As I’m writing, snow is swirling around outside my window as if I’m looking into a snow globe. Tomorrow the weather is forecast to clear up and the blue sky and sunshine is expected to return, however the temperature will stay below zero with highs of -3 degrees, lows of -5 degrees, and a windchill of -9 degrees. If you’re heading up the mountain, a good fleecy neckbuff, insulated gloves and good thermal layers will be essential to protect yourself from the elements and ultimately enjoy your day. Have a great day on the slopes and enjoy the snow!

It’s been an exciting week in Grandvalira thanks to the FIS World Cup Finals which have been taking place on the black Aliga and Avet slopes in El Tarter and Soldeu sectors since Monday. This is the first time Andorra has hosted this prestigious event, which is considered by many to be the most important competition on the pro ski tour after the Olympic Games and World Championships.

Today I headed to Grandvalira-Soldeu where thousands of people had come to watch the Men’s Giant Slalom and Women’s Slalom races on the black Avet slope. The atmosphere in resort was incredible – there was an infectious, exciting buzz as spectators watched the athletes expertly weave their way down the course, and the warm weather and sunshine definitely helped to keep the positive vibes flowing through the crowds.

After the races had finished, we headed to the picnic hut to the right of the Gall de Bosc rope tow in Soldeu to soak up the sunshine and take in the mountain views whilst enjoying our packed lunch. Secluded from the main pistes and the excitement of the World Cup, it felt like we were a million miles away from the crowds at the base of the Avet slope.

By this afternoon the slopes had become noticeably softer and slushy due to the mild temperature (around 10 degrees), however the snow conditions improved the closer we got to Pas de la Casa. The red Directa run into Pas de la Casa was by far the best run of the day – the snow here was firmer and grippier, and although the top section was spoilt with moguls, the rest of the piste made for a fast, enjoyable ride.

Around 5pm there was a great atmosphere on Coll Blanc’s terrace as the Underground Bar’s DJ set pumped lively tunes to an energetic crowd who were singing and dancing along as the sun started to sink lower in the sky. With night-skiing on the blue Tubs run until 8pm and an after-party at Olimpiades upper terrace this evening it looks like the good times and happy weekend vibes are set to continue here in Pas de la Casa!

It’s the last day of the FIS World Cup Finals tomorrow, so if you’re in resort don’t miss the chance to witness history in the making! - Head to the base of the black Avet slope to watch the Women’s Giant Slalom (9:30am-12:15pm) and Men’s Slalom (10:30am – 1:15pm) races.

What a brilliant day on the slopes! Despite the mild temperatures we’ve experience over the last few days, the slopes were feeling fantastic today, with the best conditions found in Grau Roig and Pas de la Casa sectors due to their higher altitude. Even in the afternoon, the pistes in these two sectors were firm and grippy with a lovely layer of soft, sugary snow on top. By around 3pm the slopes were starting to feel a little slushy but were still enjoyable to ride.  

The sun has been shining and the temperature has felt a little cooler at around two degrees, with a wind chill of around -1 degrees. Later this afternoon, the weather showed signs of changing as grey clouds began to roll into the valley, dimming the sunlight despite its best efforts to shine on through. Noticing the signs, I wondered whether the clouds could be bringing fresh snow with them. Currentl the forecast is predicting that the temperature will drop to around -5 degrees this evening, with light snowfall expected overnight and throughout the day tomorrow. Fingers crossed!

My favourite run of the day was the blue Portella run in Grandvalira Grau Roig, which is accessible via the TK2 Coma III T-bar drag lift at the top of the Coma Blanca chairlift. I love Portella due to its variety of terrain – there’s lots of rolling hills, banked sides, and plenty of fun twists and turns to enjoy. Portella’s secluded location means that the run is usually empty so you can enjoy the freedom of having the piste all to yourself as you weave your way down the track, which eventually joins onto the well-ridden blue Bosc run. Portella is one of Grandvalira’s hidden gems, so make sure you take the time to discover it.

Many people are often put off by the thought of having to use a T-bar drag lift, however they’re super easy to use for both skiiers and snowboarders. The trick is to relax and try do as little as possible – let the lift do the work for you, and keep facing up the mountain. Resist the temptatation to look at your snowboard or skis – this will shift your weight forward and downwards, and you’ll be more likely to fall over.  

There’s a couple of other great options from the top of the TK Coma III T-bar drag lift; ride the wide, gentle gully of the blue Toboggan run, or test your speed and technique on the fun boarder-cross track which forks off to the right of the Portella run. Trust me, you’ll enjoy them!

If you’re in resort this week, don’t forget about the FIS World Cup Finals which are taking place on the black Avet slope in Soldeu and the black Aliga slope in El Tarter. 156 male and female athletes from 18 countries will be competing for first place in their category – Downhill and Super G (Aliga, El Tarter) and Slalom and Grand Slalom (Avet, Soldeu). Entry to the stands are free so don’t miss the fantastic opportunity to see history in the making!  For more info and the programme of events, see here: https://www.andorraresorts.com/worldcup/

On Wednesday night we were treated to some light snowfall which topped up the coverage on the slopes by another 5 centimetres. Two days later, the slopes are still a dream to ride. The consistency of the snow is light and soft, so riding my snowboard felt almost effortless at times. Better yet, heavier snowfall is forecast on Tuesday and Wednesday next week so we can hopefully expect to see the coverage increase by around 12-14 centimetres!

The temperature has been cooler today at around -3 degrees, but I soon worked up a sweat riding piste after piste, non-stop. My favourite run of the day was the black Jordi Angles run in Pas de la Casa. This run starts off as a gentle but narrow track which soon widens out into a steep slope before eventually - and kind of ironically - joining the beginners area of Pas de la Casa. The coverage on Jordi Angles was brilliant and provided me with extra confidence whilst riding the steeper sections of this run. As far as black runs go it’s a pretty reasonable descent, and if you’re at an intermediate level or higher, I’d recommend it!

The snow conditions today were too good to resist, so we decided to venture off-piste of the black Jordi Angles run, where there were some fantastic freeride opportunities and fresh, untouched snow desperately waiting to be carved with the edges of our snowboards and skis.

Riding in fresh powder is one of the best experiences I’ve ever had, but it’s important to remember that skiing and snowboarding is a dangerous sport, particularly off-piste where there may be hidden rocks and other unexpected terrain. Never attempt to go somewhere which doesn’t look safe or is out of your ability range, and if you’re planning on venturing off-piste make sure you check the avalanche risk before heading up the mountain.

If you’re coming to Grandvalira over the weekend, look out for the Snow Bike competition taking place in the Grau Roig sector on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th March. Bikers will be racing around a 22 kilometre track which has a vertical descent of approximately 700 metres. Training will take place on Saturday afternoon, and the competition will kick off at 9:30am on Sunday morning.

Better yet, from Monday 11th March the highly anticipated FIS World Cup Finals will be taking place on the black Avet slope in Soldeu sector and Aliga black slope in El Tarter. The stands are up and ready to be filled by spectators, so if you’re in resort make sure you go check it out!

Since my last snow report on Friday the weather has been showing signs of changing. The temperature has started to drop, with lows of -2 degrees and a wind chill of -5 degrees today, so for the first time in a while I’ve been wearing my long-sleeved base layer and neck buff under my jacket. The blue sky and sunshine persisted for most of the day today, however over the last couple of days we’ve seen the sky give way to darkening grey clouds.  

It’s been one month since the last significant snowfall but the conditions on the slopes are still enjoyable. The Grandvalira maintenance team have been doing a great job grooming the pistes overnight and have taken advantage of Grandvalira’s expansive mountains by moving snow from elsewhere to ensure decent coverage across the ski domain. The result is that there are still 103 out of 129 pistes open in Grandvalira, and overall the coverage is pretty good.

The morning is the best part of the day as the pistes are firm and grippy, and I especially enjoyed the red Menera run for this reason as I rode into Grau Roig valley earlier today. By afternoon the consistency of the snow became a little slushy in places, particularly on slopes which are at a lower altitude, but personally I find these conditions fun to ride as the snow becomes soft and forgiving.  

My favourite run of the day was the red Directa run in Pas de la Casa, or more specifically – riding in between the red piste markers and the TSD4 Pas de la Casa lift stanchions. I like riding this mini-piste as it’s often empty as the majority of people stick to the main Directa piste. Better yet, the snow here was really grippy (even in the afternoon), with a nice sugary top layer which sprayed up with every turn I made. After enjoying some carving and fast riding down this run we ended our day in Olimpiades restaurant for a bite to eat. The food there is absolutely delicious – I’d recommend the Greek veggie pitta if you’re a vegetarian, or the Steak & Ale pie if you’re a carnivore.

With fresh snowfall forecast from tomorrow it looks as though winter might finally be making a comeback in Grandvalira, so keep your fingers crossed and pray for powder!

March has arrived, but we’ve already been experiencing early ‘spring conditions’ over the last couple of weeks. The sun has been shining non-stop and the temperature has been mild so there’s been plenty of people on the mountain wearing hoodies or soft-shell jackets. Every day my face and hands are becoming browner, but this is a double-edged sword as it also means that my goggle tan is starting to become more apparent - despite trying to even it out by wearing sunglasses on the chairlifts.

When you’re surrounded by snow it can be easy to forget the dangers of the sun, but it’s important to remember that at altitude you’re even more susceptible to UV damage from the sun. Make sure you carry some high factor sun cream in your pocket or rucksack and remember to keep applying it to your face every hour or so.

I’m really impressed with the current conditions of the slopes across Grandvalira – it’s been a couple of weeks since the last significant snowfall, but the coverage remains good, with 201 kilometres of pisted runs open across the domain (out of a total of 210 kilometres). This morning the pistes felt hard compact as the cold temperature had hardened the snow overnight, but by midday the sun had warmed the pistes, softening them up and making them feel more forgiving.

Although the UK half term school holidays are over, it’s still been pretty busy in Grandvalira due to Carnival this weekend – a Spanish bank holiday. There was a big queue for the Cubil chairlift for most of the day as it’s the one and only link from Grau Roig to Soldeu sectors, however it didn’t take longer than 5 minutes to get to the front as we decided to take the single-riders queue instead. From the top of Cubil there’s several routes you can choose from so generally the crowds disperse. The main disadvantage was that by the afternoon a lot of the pistes today had become pretty chopped up and littered with man-made moguls which are a dream for some skiiers, but not so much for me.

My favourite run of the day was the boarder-cross track at the top of the TK Coma II T-bar drag lift. It’s a really fun blue run with high outside walls – perfect for keeping your speed up – and also a few fun features to ride like a rainbow box and small kickers. The track is designed for snowboarders training for boarder-cross racing, but it’s a great fun run no matter what your discipline, and it’s also suitable for all abilities from advanced beginner and above.

If you’re coming to resort soon keep an eye on the forecast as currently there’s some light snow fall forecast around mid-week next week. Could more powder days be on the horizon? We’ll have to keep our fingers crossed & wait and see!

It’s been another glorious day here in Grandvalira, characterised by sunshine, blue sky and mild temperatures around 6 degrees. After checking the forecast this morning I decided a long-sleeved base layer wasn’t necessary and instead simply wore a sports vest underneath my insulated ski jacket.

Despite the unusually mild temperature for February, there’s still good coverage on the slopes, with 206 kilometres of pistes open across the ski domain. At the end of January and start of February we had so much snowfall (around one metre), and we’re still reaping the benefits of this big dump even now as the Grandvalira snow maintenance teams have been able to shift snow from other areas on the mountain to ensure the most enjoyable conditions. In addition to this, every night the piste bashers are doing a fantastic job at grooming the pistes to ensure that there’s good, even coverage across the ski domain.

In recent days, the best part of the day is definitely in the morning when the pistes are freshly groomed and undisturbed by the hundreds of skiers and snowboarders eager to explore. This morning the pistes were firm and grippy, making for a fast, controlled ride. As the day progressed, the consistency of the snow became soft and slushy – particularly on runs which had been in the sunshine for the majority of the day. I actually quite like these sorts of conditions as they are more forgiving, although a little slower to ride.  

Today, my favourite run was the blue L’Avi run which we accessed via a secret track to the left of the fence on the red Serrat Pinos run. I was delighted to discover that the track had been completely untouched as laying ahead of us was the beautiful, soft, pattern of corduroy created by the piste-bashers last night. It’s always such a privilege to be the first person to ride a run, although it sometimes seems a shame to ruin such beautiful work with the lines carved into the snow by our snowboards as we weaved our way down to the bottom of the Llac de Cubil chairlift.

Time flies when you’re having fun, and that’s certainly been true of the UK half term school holidays this week!

Every day we’ve been blessed with beautiful weather, and today was no exception. The sun has been shining all day and I haven’t seen a single cloud in the sky. The temperature has been mild at around 3 degrees so the cold breeze on the chairlifts was very much welcomed. On days like today, I’m definitely grateful for the vents on my jacket, helmet and pants! 

It’s been just over two weeks since the last significant snowfall but the conditions on the slopes are still enjoyable, with up to 207km of pistes open and ready to be explored.

Overall the coverage is pretty decent, although a little irregular in places. This morning the pistes felt hard and grippy, but by afternoon they softening up a little due to the mild temperature. As it’s such a busy week some slopes have been getting a little choppy towards the afternoon, but this is no problem for the piste bashers who will groom the pistes to perfection again overnight.

My favourite run of the day was the blue Riu Cubil which joins on from  Neret at the top of Funicamp gondola. Riu Cubil is a flat track which takes you on a journey right through the middle of the valley.  It’s completely secluded from all the other pistes so, like today, it’s usually pretty quiet. For me, the quieter runs are some of the best as it allows you to ride with freedom and confidence whilst enjoying the views.

The UK half term holidays are finally here! There’s been a great atmosphere in resort this afternoon as people come off the slopes smiling after a great day of exploring Grandvalira. The sun has been shining all day and the temperature has been relatively mild (around 1 degrees), so it’s no wonder why everyone’s in an infectious feel-good holiday mood.

On days like today, the terraces of Olimpiades and Pas 83 are a great place to soak up the sunshine and watch skiiers and snowboarders riding down the slopes right in front of you. We all love people watching, and here’s definitely a good place for it!

The conditions on the slopes are pretty good even though the last significant snowfall was around two weeks ago. As it’s a particularly busy week, the snow gets pushed around more than usual, so by the afternoon the pistes can be pretty chopped up in places, which also exposes the harder compact snow underneath. This week, it definitely pays to be an earlybird – so make sure you get up the slopes nice and early to take advantage of the freshly groomed pistes and grippy corduroy texture.

Unsurprisingly, the queues at some chairlifts are longer than usual this week due to the volume of people visiting Grandvalira. The Cubil chairlift sees the most traffic as it links the Grau Roig and Soldeu sectors, however don’t forget there’s an individuals queue which you can use to beat the queue if you don’t mind riding the chairlift with strangers!

My favourite run of the day was Moreto run – a relatively steep, straight run which takes you from the top of the Cubil chairlift down to the centre of Grau Roig sector. The piste was virtually deserted as most people choose to head down to Grau Roig via the scenic red Cami de Pessons run instead, however the views from the top of Moreto are just as impressive. As you’re so high, you can see all the Grau Roig sector ahead of you and get a good ‘lay of the land’. The snow on this run was hard and grippy at the top but became softer and more forgiving towards the very bottom.

If you’re in resort this week, don’t forget there’s night skiing on Thursday and Saturday evening from 5pm to 8pm on the blue Tubs run which is accessible via the Solana chairlift. The run is lit up with floodlights, allowing you to get a few extra laps in before dinner!

The half-term school holidays kick off on Monday, marking the busiest week of the winter season as families from all around the UK come to Andorra to experience skiing in Grandvalira - the biggest ski resort in the Pyrenees and Southern Europe. Despite the upcoming holiday, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the slopes were lovely and quiet today in Pas de la Casa and Grau Roig, and this provided me with extra motivation to make the most of the glorious weather today.

The sun hasn’t stopped shining and I haven’t seen a cloud in the sky all day. At the top of Pas de la Casa, all I could see for miles was the contrast of blindingly-white, snowy mountains and the clear, vibrant, bright blue sky. I’ve seen a lot of red, sore, sunburnt faces in resort over the last few days, so make sure you’re not one of these people and remember to top up on the suncream throughout the day! I like to use Aussie Gold 50 SPF sun-block stick – it’s pocket size and doesn’t leave your face feeling greasy, plus, you don’t have to worry about it spilling which is also a bonus.

We’ve had pretty mild temperatures today at around 2 degrees, however by the afternoon the temperature dropped slightly as the wind picked up and the face of Pas de la Casa became shaded as the sun dropped down behind the mountain. Even still, it was hardly Baltic weather though – just a long sleeved base layer under my jacket was more than enough to keep me warm even in the colder part of the afternoon.

The slopes are maintaining good snow coverage despite the warmer temperatures of the last few days. Whilst this morning the pistes felt quite hard due to the cold temperatures overnight, by afternoon the sun had softened these up a little, making them more forgiving.  

My favourite run of the day was the blue Isards run in Grandvalira Pas de la Casa. This is a really cruisy blue run which is nestled away in a corner of Pas de la Casa that many people simply don’t discover. To get there, you have to take the Coll de Isards chairlift in the Ski School beginner’s area, and then take a fairly long drag lift up to the top of the run. The views from the drag lift itself are simply stunning, and you get a real sense of tranquillity as there’s hardly anyone else behind or in front of you.  At the top, there were a couple of people choosing to take advantage of the beautiful weather and gorgeous scenery by stopping for a picnic break. The run itself is pretty gentle with some slightly steeper sections, making it a good option for advanced beginners. You’re well protected by the walls of the surrounding mountains, making it a good choice for windier days too.

The weather reminded me of my mother today – it just couldn’t quite seem to make up it’s mind. Whereas the last few days we’ve experienced gorgeous bluebird days characterised by sunshine and clear blue sky, today the weather was slightly more variable, with windows of sunshine overshadowed by clouds intermittently throughout the day. As a result, the light was a little flat at times, but it wasn’t too long before the sun and pockets of blue sky reappeared.

The temperature has been around -6 degrees with a windchill of -15 degrees, however it was only really on the chairlifts that it felt cold. The Pic Blanc chairlift from Grau Roig to Pas de la Casa in was especially chilly, however this is often the case as it’s a pretty long, exposed lift which connects these two sectors. Luckily, the views of Grau Roig from the Pic Blanc chairlift are so stunning though that it’s worth it.

The slopes are in good condition thanks to the heavy snowfall we received at the end of January - not to mention the hard work of the piste-bashers who expertly groom the slopes overnight, every night. The fact that there’s 204 kilometres of pisted runs open (out of a total of 210 kilometres) is testament quality of conditions and Grandvalira’s commitment to maintaining an enjoyable ski area.  

Some sections became a little polished in places as the day progressed, but the trick is to read the terrain ahead of you and avoid turning on the harder, compact sections of snow. For me, I’ll ride the sides of the pistes as the coverage is usually better here since most people tend to ski down the middle of the run, pushing snow to the sides of the pistes.

 My favourite run of the day was the red Montmallus run which is tucked away in the corner of Grau Roig. Montmallus is often bypassed or left undiscovered by a lot of visitors to Grandvalira as it’s hidden out of sight of the busier, popular pistes like Pala Nova and Pista Llarga which take you from Pas de la Casa into Grau Roig. As a result, this run is usually pretty quiet (if not empty) and today was no exception.

Making it to the top of the long button-lift ride to the top of Montmallus often feels like an achievement in itself, but the scenery that greets you make it even better. All you can see are the snowy mountains and forest surrounding you - there’s not even a chairlift in sight. Here, you can take in the beautiful winter landscape and feel completely away from it the hustle and bustle of your normal day to day life.

Although marked as a red, the run itself is pretty easy going with lots of interesting twists and turns. On powder days, it’s a fantastic place for those who enjoy riding off-piste through the trees, and at the end of the run, there’s also the children’s Imaginarium circuit which takes you on a fun obstacle course through the forest.

You can access Montmallus via the blue Bosc run which runs to the left of the Grau Roig snow park. Just prepare yourself for what can feel like a challenging button-lift (especially if you’re a snowboarder!) – but take my word for it, it’s absolutely worth the ride.

It’s been a beautiful bluebird day on the mountain today - the sun has been shining all day long and the sky has been a gorgeous shade of blue streaked with wispy white clouds. The temperature has been a little milder today at around 1 degrees but the cold, gentle breeze helped to cool me down on the chairlift rides in between runs.  

With 204 kilometres of pistes currently open across the Grandvalira ski domain, today was all about clocking up the kilometres for me and my friends so we decided to take a ride to Soldeu and back. Depending on your ability and which route you take, it only takes around 45 minutes each way, and there’s a variety of blues, reds and (some) blacks to choose from along the way. The most direct route though is via some of Grandvalira’s best red runs:

TSD4 Pas de la Casa chairlift > Pala Nova red run > Cubil chairlift > Serrat Pinos red run > Pla de les Pedres Soldeu chairlift > Serra de les Solanelles > TLC Solana rope tow. From the rope tow, you can take the blue Os or Bosc Fosc runs to the bottom of Soldeu.

The majority of slopes are currently in fantastic condition after the generous amount of snowfall we’ve received over the last couple of weeks. Some sections of the red Serrat Pinos ‘motorway’ run felt a little scratchy on the rollers, but this was the excepetion. Overall the coverage across the ski domain is good, and the pistes are pretty soft and forgiving.

My favourite run of the day was the red Directa run in Pas de la Casa. This run can sometimes be challenging due to the moguls which are created as the day progresses, and also because of the volume of people making their way down this popular run. Today though, Directa was super quiet so the piste was unspoilt by moguls or people. In this moment, we had the freedom to ride for our life and enjoy the gorgeous views of resort and the surrounding mountains on our way down. Not a bad way to end the day if you ask me!

Today is a reminder of how quickly conditions on the mountain can change. Yesterday, we were blessed with the best bluebird day of the season, characterised by gorgeous clear blue sky, relentless sunshine and great snow conditions. Today though light snowfall and low clouds returned, reducing the visibility and making the mountain peaks disappear into whiteness. The temperature was slightly warmer at -1 degrees, so just a vest and long sleeved thermal under my jacket was plenty to keep me warm on the long chairlift rides.

The snowfall this morning felt a wet in consistency which made the pistes feel slow and sticky to ride, and at times it felt like I was close to catching an edge. In places, the slopes were a little choppy higher up due to lots of people making the same turns, and as result popular pistes such as the red Pala Nova and Pista Llarga runs were more challenging to ride than usual.

The snow conditions today stand in contrast to the soft, even, forgiving snow we experienced across Grandvalira yesterday, but perhaps I’m being a little unfair. After all, yesterday was a particularly exceptional day, and the coverage on the mountain remains fantastic, with a maximum snow depth of 165cm.

By around 3pm this afternoon, the weather cleared up a little – the snowfall ceased, the clouds lifted and the sun even made a brief appearance, temporarily improving the visibility on the slopes. The consistency of the snow on the pistes felt better even after half an hour or so without wet snowfall.  

My favourite run of the day was the blue Neret run in Grandvalira-Encamp. Neret is a great option if you’ve got little kids, or even if you’re a big kid yourself; the piste takes you on a windy journey through archways and obstacles, and there’s also a little tunnel you can ride through. It’s a good choice if you want to avoid the steep top section of the red Entradort run, although you do have to join this further down in order to get to Llac de Cubil chairlift. The snow conditions on Neret today were good, and the piste was virtually deserted meaning we could have some fun riding through the obstacles.

The forecast tomorrow is looking clearer than today with prolonged sunny spells expected throughout the day. If you’re heading up the mountain make sure you bring your suncream unless you want to be going home with a not-so-flattering goggle tan!

February begins, but the fantastic snow conditions continue! If you’ve been following us on Facebook and Instagram you’ll know that we’ve been blessed with A LOT of snow over the last week or two.

Today, strong winds (around 25km/h) meant that higher, exposed areas such as the ridge at the top of Antennes chairlift were a little windblown, but the overall coverage on the slopes remains fantastic. The maximum snow depth is currently 160cm and there’s a good layer of soft snow on the pistes. As the day progressed, some pistes became a little choppy and hard work on the legs; meanwhile, other runs such as Tubs in Pas de la Casa and the lower, wider section of Directa remained smooth and grippy, making for a cruisy carefree ride.

The weather has been variable today with cloudy sky low, flat white light, and the occasional window of blue sky and sunshine. The main consistency has been the bitterly cold temperature, which has been around -8 degrees with a windchill of around -17 degrees. Once you get riding you soon warm up, but it definitely felt pretty chilly sat on the chairlifts today – especially the Pic Blanc lift which stretches across Grau Roig to Pas de la Casa.

My favourite run of the day was the red Pista Llarga run which takes you from the top of Pas de la Casa to the base of the ANtennes chairlift. The run has a great mixture of terrain – at the top, the piste starts off nice and wide but turns into a narrow track before opening out again. Before reaching the final section of the run you can look to the right and on clear days you can see all the way to Borders d’Envalira and Soldeu.

The snow is forecast to continue over the weekend, and the temperature will stay well below zero (around -12 degrees) so wrap up warm in plenty of layers if you’re heading up the mountain! High winds of around 60 km/h are expected tomorrow, so stick to the lower pistes where possible, or head to Grau Roig where the slopes are better protected from the elements. Whatever you do and wherever you go, I hope you have fun and enjoy the snow!

The snow just keeps falling here in Grandvalira! The streets in Pas de la Casa have been covered with thick snow which in some places is knee-deep! The coverage on the slopes is absolutely fantastic and the maximum snow depth on the mountain has increased to 180cm. The consistency of the snow is soft and fluffy with deeper powder-like conditions to dabble in and out of on the sides of the pistes.

It’s not really been a day for exploring far off-piste though as the visibility has been pretty irregular due to the low clouds, snowfall and flat white light. Standing at the base of the slopes this afternoon the chairlifts disappeared into whiteness and you couldn’t even make out the iconic Coll Blanc panoramic restaurant which stands at the top of the mountain. In these sorts of conditions I prefer to stick to the lower pistes as the visibility is generally better at even slightly lower altitudes. For example, today I’d recommend the blue Tubs run which comes down from the Solana chairlift in resort, or the blue Bosc run which comes down from the Coma Blanca chairlift in Grandvalira Grau Roig. Not only was the visibility better on these runs, but the slopes have less of an incline and are well-pisted, so you can trust the terrain a little more despite the flat light.

My favourite run of the day was the blue Port run which snakes down from the top of Antennes chairlift back into Pas de la Casa resort. It’s such a cruisy run and the visibility improved once we were off of the Antennes ridge, so it made for a nice relaxed ride. Better yet, we didn’t see a single person until we reached Costa Rodona restaurant!

The wind is expected to pick up this evening to around 65km/h and the snowfall will become heavier, so if you’re heading out this evening wrap up warm and take care on the pavements. Looking at the forecast it looks like the snow is set to continue for the rest of the week, and on Friday and Saturday we may see the sun make a brief reappearance. Could it be a bluebird powder day I wonder!?

If you’ve been following us on Facebook and Instagram you’ll already know that since Wednesday the snow has been dumping down on us big time! There’s a great atmosphere in resort, with plenty of happy faces and lots of tired legs from all the riding over the last few days.

The snow depth in resort is around 30cm to 60cm in places, and yesterday I even saw a few people attempting to snowboarding down the street as there’s that much snow! (Although for safety reasons I wouldn’t recommend trying this yourselves – stick to the snow on the pistes!) The bars and restaurants have had their work cut out for them clearing all the snow from their rooves and the council have been working hard to clear the snow from the roads and pavements.

The maximum depth on the mountain has increased to 135cm, and needless to say, the coverage on the slopes is fantastic. As usual, the better snow conditions can be found in Grandvalira Grau Roig sector as its relatively well-sheltered from the wind and generally quieter.

Due to high winds and safety reasons, some of the lifts in Pas de la Casa had to be temporarily closed on-and-off throughout the day; however the Solana chairlift was running for most the day, and the Font Negre six man chairlift was opened, allowing access to Grandvalira-Grau Roig and the other sectors.

The snowfall continued lightly throughout the day - this morning the consistency was a little wet  but by afternoon it became heavier and thicker. The visibility has been low today thanks to the clouds and snowfall, however the visibility improved further afield on the face of Grandvalira Soldeu and Grandvalira El Tarter sectors due to their lower altitude.

Tomorrow we can expect a clearer day, however by Sunday heavy snowfall is forecast to return, with another 17cm of snow expected. Keep those powder days coming Mother Nature!!

It’s amazing how quickly the weather changes in the mountains. Yesterday, the slopes of Grandvalira were disappearing into the clouds; the visibility was incredibly low (you could only see a couple of metres ahead of you); and by afternoon snow had begun to fall. In comparison, today was mostly characterised by blue sky, sunshine, and clear visibility (although admittedly, by afternoon the clouds began to gather once again and the light became flat).

Despite the physical change in appearance of the weather, the temperature today was numbingly cold, around -7 degrees thanks to the wind-chill. Even just the tiniest gap between my neck buff and my face made me feel like I was experiencing ‘brain freeze’ – i.e. the numbing sensation you get when you eat ice cream too quickly!

Grandvalira haven’t missed a beat though and had the snow cannons blasting across the snow domain today, taking advantage of the cold temperature. The slopes are maintaining pretty good snow coverage on the majority of open pistes, of which there’s 160kilometres available to ride across the Grandvalira ski domain.

By mid-afternoon the slopes felt harder as snow had become pushed around, and the corners of some bends (like the blue Tortuga run) were a little polished and scratchy. In these conditions, it’s usually wise to stick to the side of the pistes where the coverage is more reliable.

The best run of the day was the blue Fugida run which veers off the red Serrat Pinos run towards Pla de les Pedres Grau Roig chairlift. Fugida is a good option for those wanting to avoid the big rollers of Serrat Pinos - also known as ‘the motorway’ run. Fugida is a great ‘scenic route’ and a pleasure to ride due to its seclusion from the main piste.

Currently the forecast is predicting light snowfall from this evening. By mid-week, the snowfall is expected to become heavier with over one metre of snow predicted over Wednesday and Thursday! Powder days ahoy!!

This afternoon I stepped off the slopes in Pas de la Casa smiling like the cat who got the cream. The sun has been shining all day, and the conditions this morning were fantastic, with good, even coverage and grippy snow across the majority of pistes.

As the conditions were so enjoyable in Pas de la Casa and Grau Roig sectors, we didn’t even want to venture further afield. Instead, we decided to lap the face of Pas de la Casa several times, choosing different routes each time, before taking the Cubil chairlift to the top of Grau Roig. One of the many things I love about Pas de la Casa and Grau Roig is the variety of terrain and runs to choose from. No matter what your ability, there’s something for everyone, and plenty of options to keep you entertained and/or challenged.

The blue Tubs run stood out as one of the best runs of the day thanks to the excellent work of Grandvalira’s piste-bashers who had groomed the run overnight with beautiful corduroy lines. This is a popular piste for beginners due to its gentle, wide slope, and can be accessed from the base of Pas de la Casa via the Solana lift, or via the red Directa run. If you’re in resort on a Thursday or Saturday, don’t forget you can enjoy night skiing on the Tubs run between 5pm and 8pm (weather permitting) – perfect for those of you who just can’t get enough of the mountain!

At two degrees and 5km/h winds it’s felt a little warmer today than in recent days; however, the temperature is forecast to drop again on Wednesday to around -6 degrees, so if you’re coming out soon make sure you come prepared with plenty of layers! Light snowfall is expected from Wednesday, with around 24cm of fresh snow forecast for Saturday. Did someone say powder day??

Over the last couple of days we’ve been blessed with fresh snowfall here in Grandvalira. The pavements of Pas de la Casa are snowy once again, and the depth at the top of the slopes has increased to 50cm. The conditions on the slopes have improved, adding to the great work already achieved by Grandvalira’s piste bashers and snow cannons over the last week or so.

Due to strong winds yesterday (40-50 km/h), some of the higher, more exposed pistes such as the Serrat Pinos red run were windblown and a little hard in places; however, the coverage on the slopes overall is pretty good and feeling much more regular than even a week ago. The consistency of the snow is soft and fluffy – perfect for digging in the edges and practicing some carving!

Despite the sunshine, the temperature today has been around -9 degrees, with a wind chill of -19 degrees. Having checked the forecast this morning I was prepared for the cold weather, so I wrapped myself up in a long-sleeved merino wool base layer, a down-feather jacket, and my winter jacket on top. Although I was sweltering hot before stepping outside, this was just about enough layers to keep me warm for the day! I didn’t have to worry about catching the sun or windburn as I spent most of the day with my face hidden behind my fleecy neck buff. In these temperatures, exposing your face or hands for even just a few moments is enough to make you go numb!

The best run of the day was the red Entradort run, which we reached via the blue Neret slope – a short, narrow cruisy blue in Grandvalira-Encamp which is popular for both children and beginners. Although it was later in the afternoon, there was still lots of thick fluffy powder to the side of Entradort - always such a brilliant feeling! Grandalles red run in Grandvalira-Grau Roig was also a great choice, with good coverage, grippy snow and steep terrain – perfect for adrenaline junkies!

The temperature is forecast to remain below freezing (around -4 degrees) with more snowfall forecast from tomorrow evening and on Sunday, so wrap up warm and enjoy the snow!

Today has marked a significant change in recent weather conditions. Instead of the blue skies and sunshine we've been expreriencing over the last couple of weeks, the sky has been grey all day, with snow clouds gathering and enveloping the mountain peaks across Grandvalira. By around 3pm, small, light snowflakes began to fall, resulting in lots of smiling faces and a few 'woohoo!'s from passing snowboarders. 

Needless to say, the temperature has felt even colder than recent days - around -12 degrees thanks to the south-easterly wind which has been blowing around 30km/h. In windy conditions, Grau Roig is usually one of the best sectors to ride as the majority of its slopes descend into a bowl which is well-protected by the surrounding mountains. In particular, the Cami de Pessons red run is a great option as the track is a little more secluded, and also protected by the mountains on your right, and the trees on your left. Plus, there's the Llac de Pessons restaurant which is a perfect place to warm up over a rich hot-chocolate or mulled wine!

The visibility on the mountain today was irregular due to the low clouds and flat-white light. In these conditions, it's difficult to judge the terrain in front of you, but orange-lense goggles are a great help if you have them! It sounds counter-intuitive, but one of the best things you can do is stay relaxed and keep your knees and your body fluid so you can easily respond to any unexpected bumps or changes in the terrain. 

Thanks to the colder temperature of recent days, the snow cannons have helped to improve the conditions on the slopes. Overall, the coverage is currently pretty good; although some sections of the slopes do still feel hard, with compact snow underneath the sugary cannon snow. 

Now that the festive celebrations of Christmas, New Year and the Three Kings are out the way, the mountain is feeling much quieter, so there's no need to queue for any of the chairlifts, and on some runs the piste was virtually empty! 

If you're coming to Grandvalira over the next few days make sure you pack plenty of layers, a fleecy neckbuff and thick, insulated gloves as snow showers are forecast to continue throughout the rest of the week. Woohoo!

It’s felt noticeably colder today with lows of -6 degrees and 20km/h winds. My fleecy neck buff saved the day, however as the cold began to set in on the chairlifts I regretted only wearing my glove liners rather than my thicker, insulated mitts. Don’t learn the lesson the hard way - it’s always better to layer up and dress for colder conditions!

Thanks to the colder temperature, the snow cannons have been on full-blast across the whole ski domain throughout the day and overnight, adding to the existing base and encouraging more reliable conditions. The slopes are still hard and a little scratchy in some areas, however the sugary cannon snow makes for a pleasant ride and, overall, the conditions have improved even in just the last few days.

As the day progressed, the cannon snow had been pushed around a bit, exposing some harder areas on the slopes. The trick is to avoid these areas by riding on the side of the piste where there’s usually a build up of snow… and less people to contend with!

The most enjoyable run of the day was Solanelles - a nice cruisy blue which takes you from Funicamp to the bottom of the Pla de les Pedres Grau Roig chairlift. The coverage on Solanelles was pretty good all over, and as the piste is nice and flat it’s a good, relaxed run to build confidence.

Overall, it’s been an enjoyable day on the mountain today. Although we’re not experiencing prime conditions compared to this time last year, the slopes are still pleasant enough to ride and Grandvalira continue to do a brilliant job investing time and money into maintaining the conditions.

Snow is forecast on Tuesday evening and Wednesday next week, so watch this space and keep your fingers crossed!

The slopes have been busy today with people enjoying the festive period and burning off all those extra calories consumed over the last few days. For the first time this season, there was a queue for the Pic Blanc and Colibri chairlifts in Grandvalira Grau Roig, but it only took a few minutes to get to the front.

The sun has been shining all day, but the air has felt pretty cold with lows of -3 degrees and 10kmh winds. 

Overnight Grandvalira have been blasting the snow cannons to maintain coverage on the slopes. This afternoon the conditions were variable - whilst there’s top layer of soft sugary cannon snow on the pistes, some sections quickly become unexpectedly hard, so take care and stick to the slopes you feel most comfortable with. In places the slopes have become chopped up as the day progresses, but this will easily be rectified by the good work of Grandvalira’s piste bashers tonight.

The afternoon started off with the red Pala Nova run towards Grau Roig. The top section of this run was challenging due to the moguls which have formed throughout the day, but became more enjoyable as it flattened out towards the bottom.

The most favourable conditions though were on the red Directa run into Pas de la Casa resort. Although the top section was pretty chopped up by afternoon, the lower two thirds of the slopes had smoother, more reliable coverage. The piste gets wider the closer you get to resort, allowing you to spread out and enjoy the ride.

It’s been a calm day on the mountain with quiet slopes and low winds around 10km/h. The air has felt cold, with lows of -3 degrees but the temperature hasn’t been as biting compared to recent days.

Deciding to take advantage of the calm conditions, we enjoyed a drink on the Colibri snack bar terrace (Grandvalira Encamp) whilst taking in the view of the surrounding valleys. From here, you can see mountains for miles and watch the Funicamp gondola disappear into the distance.

By 3pm the sun started to disappear behind the clouds as the sky became overcast and the light turned flat. In conditions like this it’s sometimes hard to judge the terrain in front of you, but it’s a good idea to stay relaxed and fluid so your body can respond to any unexpected changes in the terrain.

It’s been a few days since the last snowfall, but the slopes are maintaining good coverage, with any harder patches cordoned off by piste markers. If you’re stopping on the slopes to wait for your friends, make sure you leave enough space either side of the markers so others can still ride through!

Yesterday we enjoyed a beautiful bluebird day in Grandvalira, characterised by blue skies, sunshine, and fresh powder. Today, the temperature has dropped, the clouds have started to roll in, and the wind has picked up to around 30km/h. It’s felt pretty chilly on the chairlifts at times, but it never takes long to warm up once hitting the slopes!

Due to the high winds, some higher, more exposed areas such as the top of the Llac de Cubil chairlift, have become a bit hard and windblown; however most of the open pistes are maintaining good snow coverage, and Grandvalira are continuing to do a fantastic job of ensuring enjoyable conditions.

On days like today, Grandvalira Grau Roig is a great place to take refuge from the wind and enjoy the snow-sure slopes as it’s protected by the surrounding mountains. In particular, the red Cami de Pessons red run in Grandvalira Grau Roig made for a great ride due to the good coverage of soft snow.

The first 100 metres or so of Cami de Pessons is open and a little exposed, but as soon as you’re on the cat-track you’re well sheltered from the wind, not to mention the views are stunning. Although the run is classified as a red, the slope is actually quite gentle throughout. You do need to have good technique though as the piste gets a little narrow in places, and there's some small rollers for which you need to maintain good speed.

As the day went on, the sun made intermittent appearances through the clouds, but for now the temperatures are set to remain low, falling to below zero degrees overnight. Snow showers are forecast for tonight and tomorrow afternoon. Winter is back, and we reckon it’s just going to keep getting better and better!

Over the last 24 hours, Grandvalira has been blessed with fresh snow, transforming the resort and the mountains into a winter wonderland. Currently, there’s up to 40cm of snow at the highest parts of Grandvalira Pas de la Casa, and 52km piste available to ride across the ski domain.

Thanks to the snowfall and Grandvalira’s dedication, 20 slopes within Grandvalira Soldeu and Grandvalira El Tarter will be open from tomorrow, offering 100km of piste to enjoy this weekend!  

The snow has continued to fall lightly on and off throughout the day, and winds have reached up to 30km per hour. The visibility was affected by the nearly white-out, flat light conditions, and the wind chill was a very cold -12 degrees! In conditions like these, orange-lensed goggles are great to help improve visibility, meanwhile a fleecy neck buff and warm gloves are an absolute essential!

My favourite run of the day was the red Llac piste which snakes down from the top of TSD4 Pas de la Casa into resort. The run starts off with a gentle, weaving cat track which – on a clear day - you can ride whilst admiring the view. The piste widens out and get’s a little steeper before flattening out at the bottom as you ride past ski school beginners area. I love the variety of terrain on this run, and it’s perhaps a less intimidating route back into resort, compared to the red Directa run which can sometimes be a little crowded and spoiled by moguls.

In some places the piste was a little wind blown, however overall the coverage on the mountain is looking good. With more snow forecast tomorrow evening and into early next week, we’re feeling pretty confident that the conditions will only get better. Right now, it looks like it’s set to be a very White Christmas!

Currently there’s 52km of piste available to ride in Grandvalira, with Pas de la Casa, Grau Roig and Encamp sectors partially open and linked; however for now, Soldeu, El Tarter and Canillo sectors  remain closed. The temperature is continuing to drop though, meaning Grandvalira have turned the snow cannons back on and are hard at work preparing the slopes across the rest of the ski domain.

Despite the irregular conditions over the last week or so, the open slopes within Pas de la Casa, Grau Roig and Encamp remain promising, with decent coverage and grippy snow. A few slopes are a little harder; however any significantly patchy or icy areas have been cordoned off with piste markers or netting.

By far, my favourite run today was the red Serrat Pinos piste, which takes you from the top of the Cubil lift down to the base of Pla de les Pedres lift, linking Grau Roig with Encamp. The rolling hills are so much fun to ride, and better yet – the piste was virtually deserted! There’s a great sense of freedom having the piste all to yourself - it feels both liberating and lonesome all at the same time.

I took the opportunity to practice some carving, and make the most of the empty lifts by lapping runs to my hearts content. Conditions aren't at their peak, but there's still a lot of fun to be had on the mountain! - As with most things in life, time on the mountain is as good as you make it.

With moderate snowfall forecast on Thursday, we’re expecting that conditions will improve further, so watch this space for more updates!

It’s Friday, and Pas de la Casa definitely has that TGIF (Thank God It’s Friday) feeling! As it’s the Spanish bank holiday “puente”, the resort has been busy with lots of Spanish tourists excited to hit the slopes or enjoy some downtime in Pas de la Casa’s many bars and restaurants.

The slopes have been busier than in previous days, but it’s not overcrowded which is great. Perhaps the busiest place on the mountain was Coll Blanc terrace, where lots of people were soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the chilled music... not to mention a cold beer or two!

We’ve been experiencing some unusually warm temperatures in Grandvalira recently, and as it’s at the start of the season the snow conditions are currently varied, with some areas a little hard or bumpy. However, there was still enough coverage to enjoy a good ride from Pas de la Casa to Grau Roig, and besides, who doesn’t love spending time in the mountains!?

Today’s the day we’ve been waiting for since April – Grandvalira opening day! And what a wonderful start to winter 2018/19 it’s been so far. We’ve been blessed with gorgeous blue skies and sunshine this afternoon, and there’s been very little wind, meaning that we stayed nice and toasty whilst on the lifts!

The snow is looking promising so far with good coverage on the slopes and a light, crystal-like quality. In some places the snow is a little compact, but with more snowfall on its way that’s bound to change.

As conditions improve further, we’ll see more pistes opening up across the ski domain - currently, the Pas de la Casa and Grau Roig sectors are partially open, and Grandvalira expect to open Soldeu, El Tarter, Encamp and Canillo this Wednesday (5 December).

Since today is the first day of the season the slopes were lovely and quiet, allowing us to get our riding legs back on without too many tumbles. If you’re a beginner, now’s a great time to visit Grandvalira as you can benefit from having the pistes all to yourself a.k.a. some ‘piste and quiet’!

Our favourite run of the day was the red Pista Llarga run, which comes down from the top of TSD4 Pas de la Casa chairlift, to the base of TSD6 Pic Blanc chairlift in Grandvalira Grau Roig. As always, the views in Grandvalira Grau Roig were absolutely stunning, and the sight of snow-covered mountains as far as the eye can see never fails to take my breath away.

Snow has arrived in Pas de la Casa!  On Sunday (7th October) we saw the first light snowfall landing in the resort which got us very excited in the Andorra Resorts office!  It's great to see the first snowfalls of the season but don't be dismayed if they don't stay around very long, it's quite normal at this time of the year as temperatures still need to drop further for it to hang around.

If seeing the first snowfall has got you excited about winter then you'll want to make sure you keep checking our weather page to keep up-to-date with the forecast and the regular snow reports written by our local experts but also don't forget to get your discounted ski extras and airport transfers booked here.

So here it is – the last snow report for Pas de la Casa this season! For those of you who have been following us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, I’m sure you’ll agree that winter 2017/18 has been an absolutely fantastic season characterised by brilliant weather conditions; regular, heavy snowfall; and powder days galore! We’ve even been lucky enough to experience powder days in Spring, and if you don’t believe me you can watch the latest video here:  http://bit.ly/Spring-Powder-Pas-de-la-Casa-2018

Although we are now almost at the end of the first week of April, the snow coverage on the slopes remains excellent. The snow was initially a little hard compact this morning, however by midday the slopes became soft and playful thanks to today’s mild temperature of around 7 degrees. By around 3pm though, the sunshine and blue skies of this morning gave way to heavy grey clouds and we could feel spots of rain on our skin which made the consistency of the snow become a little sticky and slow. The visibility reduced with the arrival of the grey clouds and the light became flat, making it a little difficult to judge the terrain ahead.

The slopes in Pas de la Casa today were pretty populated due to the vast number of Portuguese people who are currently in resort, attending the Sumol festival which has been on over the last few days. Sumol, a Portuguese fizzy soft drink company similar to Fanta, currently have an inflatable marquee stand at the base of the slopes where they are giving away cans of their iconic drink. There’s a good atmosphere amongst the Portuguese getting involved although it has made the route to the chairlifts a little congested at times!

Wanting to avoid the crowds we headed to Grau Roig, where the slopes are generally much quieter. My favourite run of the day was Grandelles in Grandvalira Grau Roig which leads down towards the Antennes chairlift. Grandelles is a relatively long run which isn’t too steep, despite it being classified as a red, and the mountain views to your right are so stunning. The first section of the run is pretty straight which means you can pick up a lot of speed before it flattens out in the middle section.

Tomorrow is the last day of the FIS World Cup Speed Skiing Finals, which are being held on the black Riberal slope in Grandvalira Grau Roig. If you’re in Grandvalira, then this is an exciting event not to be missed. The speeds of the skiers are incredible – last year Swiss skier Philippe May achieved 199.56 km/h on the Riberal slope; meanwhile the World Record is  held by Valentina Greggio at 247,083 km/h, and Ivan ORIGONE at 254,958 km/h. You can watch the skiers from the sides of the Riberal slope, or from the Pic Blanc chairlift which transports you from Grau Roig to Pas de la Casa.

We can expect another mild day tomorrow with temperatures around 6 degrees, but be prepared for 45 km/h winds which will bring a wind chill of around -2 degrees. In the afternoon we may see some more rain showers, but by Sunday morning the temperature is due to drop and the rain clouds will turn to light snow showers. If you’re headed up the mountain, I hope you have a fantastic time. If not, I hope you manage to make it to Pas de la Casa next winter for another fantastic season!

It’s been another gorgeous Spring day in Grandvalira today – the sun has been shining, the sky has been mostly blue with a few clouds, and the temperature in resort has felt relatively mild at around 4 degrees.

High winds of around 40 km/h sent a bitter chill across the mountains though, meaning that the temperature felt more like -6 degrees when sat on the chairlifts which were moving a little slower than usual today. The wind was strongest in the most exposed spots on the mountain, in particular the top of the Pic Blanc chairlift. We took the top part of the red Pista Llarga run down to Coll Blanc restaurant, where the wind was so strong that it felt like it was blowing us sideways!

On windy days like today, it’s best to stick to the lower, more sheltered parts of the mountain which is why we headed in the direction of Grandvalira Grau Roig. The Grau Roig sector is made up of surrounding mountains which form a bowl that is generally well-sheltered from the wind. In particular, the red Montmallus and Cami de Pessons runs were a particular good choice today as they are a little more secluded and protected from the elements as the wind was coming from the direction of Grandvalira Encamp, the black Mirador and red Moreto runs which come down from the Cubil chairlift were also a little calmer, as the slopes form a barrier against the wind.

If you’re an advanced beginner or above, heading to Soldeu or El Tarter is also a wise choice on windy days as it’s at a lower altitude, a little less exposed to the wind, and has more options for lower, sheltered runs.

The snow consistency is currently soft, slushy and playful thanks to the milder temperatures of recent days, and although we are only five days away from the end of the season the coverage on the slopes continues to be brilliant. There’s a few rocks and earth starting to poke through the off-piste areas, but we’re pleased to say that the slopes are still even whiter than Simon Cowell’s teeth.

Tomorrow we can see varying weather conditions from sunshine and clouds to snow showers in the afternoon. The forecast is looking a little calmer with winds between 10 km/h and 25 km/h. The temperature will continue to be mild at around 0 degrees, but expect to feel a wind chill of around -4 degrees on the chairlifts and higher up. If you’re headed up the mountain then we’d recommend wearing a neckbuff and topping up on the suncream throughout the day to protect your face from the wind and sun.

It’s been yet another beautiful day in Grandvalira Pas de la Casa and Grau Roig today – the sun has been shining all afternoon and the visibility has been fantastic. On days like today I love taking the Antennes and Pic Blanc chairlifts in Grandvalira Grau Roig as the views at the top are absolutely incredible, and from the blue Port run you can even see Soldeu resort in the distance.

For me, there’s something so humbling about being completely surrounded by mountains – on one hand it empowers you to ‘dream big’ and makes you feel like the possibility for adventure is endless, but at the same time the scale and magnificence of the mountains put life into perspective by making you realise how small you are, and how insignificant some of our worries or stresses may be. The mountains are a symbol of longevity, and there’s something so comforting in this. Whether you head up the mountain at 9am or 4pm, it’s never too late to enjoy the sense of peace and serenity that the mountains can bring on a clear, calm day like today.

Whilst the mountains are a permanent fixture of Grandvalira, unfortunately the nature of seasons means that winter cannot last forever - no matter how much we wish this weren’t the case. Although the season is quickly coming to a close, the slopes are retaining great snow coverage thanks to the heavy snowfall of recent weeks and the generally brilliant conditions that we’ve experienced throughout the season.

The black Mirador run in Grau Roig and red Directa run in Pas de la Casa are currently a little chopped up since they are popular through-routes, but the consistency of the snow is currently soft and a little slushy so you can slash right through the moguls and bumps that have formed on the piste throughout the day. Meanwhile, the top of the Cubil chairlift in Grandvalira Grau Roig and the Pic Blanc chairlift in Pas de la Casa was a little windblown and polished today due to the high 35 km/h winds, but the conditions of the piste improved dramatically just a few metres down once you are sheltered from the elements.

Although the sun was shining all afternoon the wind inflicted a bitter chill whilst sitting on the chairlifts and standing in the higher, more exposed parts of the mountain. My decision to wear two long sleeved layers underneath my jacket was definitely a good shout, and at times it was necessary to pull my neck buff up under my goggles to protect my face from the cold sting of the wind.

At the base of the slopes though the weather conditions were absolutely glorious as we were well sheltered from the prevailing winds, so we decided to relax and unwind by treating ourselves to a Nutella crepe and a mug of tea outside on the La Camarguesa terrace. The warmth of the sun on my skin felt wonderful, but I made sure to top up the suncream as it’s much easier to get burnt at altitude. Judging by the bright red faces of many people walking past, some people had clearly learnt this lesson the hard way!

The weather conditions in Grandvalira today have been temperamental today, varying from low grey clouds and high winds to sunshine, and blue skies. The temperature has felt relatively mild at around 1 degrees, however the 30 km/h wind meant that it felt pretty chilly at times, particularly in higher, more exposed parts of the mountain such as the top of Cubil chairlift in Grau Roig and the Pic Blanc chairlift in Pas de la Casa. Once off the chairlift and strapped in though it didn’t take long to warm up, and at the bottom of each run I semi-regretted wearing two long sleeved layers underneath my jacket.

Throughout the day the quality of the snow gradually became softer and slushier due to the mild temperature, and by afternoon the snow felt a little sticky in places, creating friction which slowed down my snowboard. Nonetheless, the slopes are maintaining fantastic coverage which is hardly surprising consider the amount of snowfall we’ve had in recent weeks and over the whole season.

There are still off-piste opportunities to be enjoyed despite the softer, slushy snow. If you’re feeling a little daring then you can drop off the face behind the AndBurger restaurant in Encamp and treat yourself to soft, soundless snow which in some places is completely untouched. This freeride will lead you onto the lower, flat section of the red Colibri run which leads to the Llac de Cubil lift – so there’s no need to worry as you’re never too far away from the piste!

My favourite run of the day though was the red Cami de Pessons run in Grandvalira Grau Roig. One of the reasons why I love this run so much is because even on days like today where the weather conditions are variable elsewhere, Cami de Pessons is well-sheltered from the elements, and despite being a red run, it’s relatively easy-going (but just a little narrow in places). Better yet, there’s the Pessons restaurant towards the end of the run which is a perfect place to stop to enjoy a drink or bite to eat – surrounded by beautiful mountains and a frozen lake it’s so easy to relax, but so hard to leave!

It’s forecast to be another relatively mild day tomorrow with lows around 2 degrees and highs of 3 degrees. This means we can expect another day of soft, slushy snow, and a little sunshine throughout the day too. If the forecast prevails then tomorrow could be a great day for soaking up the sunshine on the terrace, so if you’re in Grandvalira be sure to head to the Pessons restaurant, but don't forget your suncream!

Wow! What a glorious day in Grandvalira today! The sun has been shining all morning and the sky is virtually clear apart from a few wispy white clouds. It’s definitely been a day for topping up the sun cream, although it has felt a little chilly on the lifts occasionally due to the 25 kilometre per hour winds. The temperature was forecast to be around -10 degrees, but once you get riding it feels more like -3 degrees.

The coverage on the slopes is currently fantastic, and the snow today has felt soft but grippy – the perfect combination for carving neat, clean turns on the mountain. Although it’s been sunny all day, the slopes are nice and firm and aren’t showing signs of becoming too slushy. With another 25 centimetres of snow forecast for tomorrow it’s likely that the conditions of the slopes will continue to keep us smiling!

The visibility has been brilliant today thanks to the great weather conditions, and at the top of the blue Port and Pastora runs in Grandvalira Grau Roig you could easily see Soldeu resort in the distance. The incredible mountain views and prime snow conditions are two of the reasons why Grau Roig is my favourite place to ride in Grandvalira, but the slopes are also generally much quieter than other sectors as there is no residential area here. A run which is always particularly quiet is the red Montmallus piste as the drag lift to take you to the top is relatively secluded, not to mention – long! The secluded location of Montmallus also means that the snow conditions are generally pretty good here, and it’s also well sheltered from the wind.

My favourite run of the day was the red Pala Nova run which comes from Coll Blanc restaurant down to the bottom of Grandvalira Grau Roig. Sometimes this run can be a little moguly in places, but today the piste was groomed perfectly and was also relatively quiet. There’s a flat section on this run just by the Iglu Hotel and Coma Blanca chairlift, so it pays to keep your speed up as much as possible– especially if you’re a snowboarder.

The forecast for tomorrow is showing moderate to heavy snowfall throughout the day, winds of around 25 km/h and a minimum temperature of around -15 degrees. It goes without saying, but make sure you’re wearing an effective layering system and a decent neck buff to protect yourself from the wind chill. Orange lense goggles are preferable as they are best suited to the low light conditions which we can expect to experience tomorrow.

Today has been the powder day we have been waiting for! The snow has been falling hard and heavy over the last couple of days and the coverage on the slopes right now is incredible. The consistency of the snow is soft, fluffy and feels just like powder - essentially, it’s perfect.

There’s currently up to 230cm of snow to be enjoyed on the mountain, offering the prime conditions for some off piste riding. I would recommend the Bosc de Moreto run which runs parallel to the red Moreto run in Grandvalira Grau Roig as the snow here had been barely touched all day.

You don’t need to venture far from the pistes to the thick powder though - simply veer to the side of the slopes and you won’t be disappointed. In particular, the snow on the side of the blue Tubs run was almost knee deep in some places!

It’s hard to choose my favourite run today as the snow everywhere was absolutely brilliant, however the red cat-track Llac run which comes from the top of the Pas de la Casa chairlift was especially fun to ride due to fantastic snow conditions and lack of other people.

The weather today was characterised by white-grey clouds, snowfall and winds of 30-40 kilometres an hour. These conditions reduced the visibility on the mountain and a flat white light made it difficult to judge the terrain. However, the snow was so soft and plentiful that the low visibility didn’t matter too much providing you kept your knees soft to absorb any bumps or dips on the piste.

More snow showers are forecast for tomorrow, however we can also expect to see some sunshine too. Wrap up warm though because the temperature is forecast to be around -12 degrees, plus wind chill from 40km/h winds. Nonetheless, with the current snow coverage it’s bound to be another fun day in store!

The snow has arrived once again to Grandvalira Pas de la Casa and Grau Roig, and the mountains are looking fantastic covered in a fresh white coating of powder.

This morning started off with blue skies and a few whispy clouds but by afternoon the visibility was reduced by the snowfall and the low clouds that rolled into the mountains. A flat white light made it difficult to judge the terrain and at times this felt a little disorientating. In conditions like these I prefer to stick to the more gentle, cruisey pistes where the terrain and decline is less challenging. The red Camí de Pessons and blue Pastora runs in Grandvalira Grau Roig are good options, as is the blue Port and Tubs runs in Grandvalira Pas de la Casa.

In most places across Grandvalira the snow felt soft and fluffy, meaning that even the runs spoiled with moguls like the black Mirador run were easier to ride than usual. In flatter sections of Grandvalira the snow felt a little slow, sticky and grabby though, so now is definitely a good time to go and get your snowboard or skis waxed!

As the conditions were a little varied today we decided to spend some time relaxing and refuelling at the Pessons restaurant on the red Camí de Pessons run. Luckily, the sun and blue skies reappeared just in time to allow us to sit outside whilst enjoying a cup of hot caldo - a delicious chicken broth.

The conditions for tomorrow are looking a little irregular and varied, with a mixture of sunshine, dark clouds, snow, and storms. Wrap up warm as the temperature will be around -10 degrees, although the winds should remain low at around 3km/h.

They say time flies when you’re having fun and that’s certainly the case here in Grandvalira. There’s just 26 days left of the season and we can’t believe how quickly it’s going, and we definitely don’t want it to end!

The weather has changed throughout the day today from low grey clouds to intermittent blue skies and sunshine, however it’s not felt too cold today as the wind has remained relatively low at 5-10km/h. Just a tank top and a long sleeved thermal have been enough to keep me warm.

The mountains are maintaining good snow coverage, although the conditions are varied across Grandvalira. In some places the consistency of the snow is soft and a little slushy, but some patches out of the sunlight felt a little hard compact.

My favourite run of the day was the red Directa run which comes into Pas de la Casa resort. This is a great run for making turns on a steep descent and also for gaining some speed. The Directa can sometimes get a little congested at the top, but further down the piste is nice and wide, providing a good opportunity for practicing some carving.

Tomorrow is forecast to be a gorgeous sunny day with relatively mild temperatures around 0 degrees, but the wind is expected to be around 20km/h so it’s likely to feel a little colder.

They say time flies when you’re having fun and that’s certainly the case here in Grandvalira. There’s just 26 days left of the season and we can’t believe how quickly it’s going, and we definitely don’t want it to end!

The weather has changed throughout the day today from low grey clouds to intermittent blue skies and sunshine, however it’s not felt too cold today as the wind has remained relatively low at 5-10km/h. Just a tank top and a long sleeved thermal have been enough to keep me warm.

The mountains are maintaining good snow coverage, although the conditions are varied across Grandvalira. In some places the consistency of the snow is soft and a little slushy, but some patches out of the sunlight felt a little hard compact.

My favourite run of the day was the red Directa run which comes into Pas de la Casa resort. This is a great run for making turns on a steep descent and also for gaining some speed. The Directa can sometimes get a little congested at the top, but further down the piste is nice and wide, providing a good opportunity for practicing some carving.

Tomorrow is forecast to be a gorgeous sunny day with relatively mild temperatures around 0 degrees, but the wind is expected to be around 20km/h so it’s likely to feel a little colder. Make sure you keep topping up on the sun cream and wear category 2 or 3 lenses to protect your eyes from the UV light.

Spring has definitely sprung here in Grandvalira Pas de la Casa today! The sun has been shining all day and the skies have been a gorgeous blue, dotted with only a few wispy white clouds. The temperature has been around -1 which is milder than in recent days, and the wind has been relatively low at 10 kilometres per hour. At times, it felt so warm that I regretted wearing a fleece under my jacket this morning, however as conditions can change on the mountain very quickly it’s always best to be cautious and layer up just in case.

Thanks to the beautiful weather conditions the many restaurant and bar terraces across Grandvalira were filled with people soaking up the sunshine and enjoying some well-deserved food and drink. If you are looking for somewhere near to resort to rest in the sunshine I would definitely recommend the Olimpiades Snack Bar or Restaurant which are both located next to each other on the left hand side of the slopes as you ski into resort (just next to the blue Tubs runs). Olimpiades has great views of the slopes and is an optimal location for a little sun-baking on days like today. The food in Olimpiades Snack Bar and Restaurant is delicious, and between 4pm and 6pm you can take enjoy their Happy Hour deals and live music.

Due to the milder temperature and consistent sunshine the snow was soft and slushy today, which is typical of the Spring conditions that we often experience in March and towards the end of the season. Personally, as a snowboarder I quite enjoy these conditions as the soft snow is nice and easy to ride, however by afternoon the slushy consistency of the snow did feel like it was slowing me down a little. In any case, it has to be said that the slopes have a good base of snow and are retaining good snow coverage really well across all of Grandvalira.

My favourite run of the day was the red Grandalles run which comes down from the top of Grandvalira Pas de la Casa to the bottom of the Antennes chairlift in Grau Roig. This run is a little quieter than the red Pista Llarga run which comes down into Grau Roig which means it’s usually less spoiled by moguls. There’s a slightly flatter section to this run but most people glide over this effortlessly, having picked up speed at the steeper section at the top of the run. As with most runs in Grandvalira Grau Roig, the surrounding mountain views are absolutely stunning, particularly to your right where you can see the mountains stretch on into the distance.

The forecast for tomorrow is looking similar to today – sunshine, blue skies and mild temperatures (around 0 degrees!) - although be aware that the 35km/h winds are likely to bring a chill to the mountains. Category 2 or 3 lensed goggles are advisable as they are best suited for bright light conditions. Don’t forget to wear sun cream either as up in the mountains you are more exposed to the high UV rays from the sun (even on cloudier days), so it’s very easy to get sunburnt and/or an embarrassing goggle tan!

Today has been a reminder just how quickly conditions can change on the mountain. This morning started off as another glorious day with blue skies and sunshine, but by afternoon dark grey clouds formed around the mountain peaks and the wind picked up, sending a chill through our bones. By late afternoon blue skies begun to reappear but the temperature remained cold around -6 degrees, and snowflakes started to fall intermittently for the rest of the afternoon.

As the weather conditions varied throughout the day the visibility also changed to a flat white light which made it difficult to judge the terrain. In these conditions you have to trust more in your legs and allow them to absorb the impact of any bumps or changes in the terrain, so although flat light can be challenging conditions to ride in, if you stick with it, it will help to improve your ability.

Despite frequent snowfall over the last week the coverage on the slopes is currently varied due to the high winds we’ve been experiencing. The higher, more exposed parts of slopes within Pas de la Casa and Grau Roig (such as at the top of Pic Negre and Cubil chairlifts) are therefore a little hard compact, but mostly the pistes remain coated with a decent layer of soft snow, and the upper snow level is around 210 centimetres.

The best snow conditions of the day were found on the red Cami de Pessons run in Grandvalira Grau Roig which is well sheltered by the trees and surrounding mountains. The snow on the red Directa run back into Pas de la Casa was also good, in part because wind had blown more snow over the ridge and onto the piste.

Tomorrow is looking like it could be another chilly day with temperatures around -10 degrees and winds of 30kmh, so wrap up warm and wear a neckbuff to protect your face from the harsh conditions.

After two days of snowfall, grey clouds and low visibility the blue skies and sunshine have returned to Grandvalira!

But today hasn’t quite been the spring conditions that are typical of March... Although this morning started off feeling pretty mild, by mid-late afternoon the sky became a little cloudier and the wind picked up to around 30-40kmh, meaning that the temperature dropped and felt colder than the -6 degrees that had been forecasted. Wearing a neckbuff was essential today in order to stop my face stinging from the wind whilst on the chairlifts, and I also made sure to top up on the suncream to avoid getting burnt.

The snow coverage on the slopes is currently looking good thanks to the recent snowfall, and the consistency of the snow is generally pretty soft and fluffy. However in the higher, more exposed places the slopes are a little wind blown and hard compact, so take care when at the top of the Antennes, Llac de Cubil and Font Negre chairlifts.

Some of the best snow could be found on the red Montmallus run in Grandvalira Grau Roig as it’s well-sheltered by trees and the surrounding mountains. You have to take a relatively long, steep drag lift which bends around the corner in order to get to the top of this run; however the conditions and views on Montmallus are well worth holding on for. If you have little ones, you can ride through the Grau Roig Imaginarium when you get to the bottom of Montmallus.

The forecast for tomorrow is showing a mixed bag of sunshine, snow and storms, with temperatures around -6 degrees, although it will feel a little colder due to the 31kmh winds. Tomorrow will definitely be a day for layering up and taking regular breaks to warm up!

It’s been a bitterly cold day in Grandvalira Pas de la Casa and Grau Roig today, with temperatures around -14 degrees. The sun has been shining all day but we’ve not felt the benefit of its warmth due to the extreme cold and wind chill. Today was definitely a day for wearing a neck buff as exposure to the cold air and wind instantly stings your skin. But don’t let the cold fool you - it’s still important to wear sunscreen as in these bright conditions it’s far too easy to catch the sun and end up with rosy red cheeks.

The harsh conditions has meant that the snow in some of the higher, more exposed parts of Grandvalira is becoming a little hard compact and wind blown. In particular, take care when getting off the Llac de Cubil chairlift as the terrain here is very polished and it’s easy to lose grip.

Having said that, the snow coverage on the more sheltered pistes of the Grandvalira Grau Roig bowl are still maintaining good snow coverage. As usual, the red Camí de Pessons run has retained good snow coverage due to it’s sheltered lower location, so if you’re coming from Soldeu or Encamp and looking for a cruisey route to Grau Roig and Pas de la Casa then this is the way to go.

My favourite run of the day was the blue Port run which comes down from the Antennes lift into Pas de la Casa. If I’m heading back to Pas de la Casa late in the afternoon I tend to choose this route as it’s much quieter than the popular red Directa run which comes down from the Coll Blanc restaurant. Port is nice and cruisey as the piste curves it’s way down the mountain at a relatively gentle descent, and is a relaxing way to end the day.

Tomorrow we can expect to see the slopes covered in fresh powder as moderate snowfall is expected throughout the day. The temperature is forecasted to be around -7 degrees but high winds of 50km/h means it will feel more like -11 degrees so wrap up warm!

The weather conditions in Grandvalira Pas de la Casa have been absolutely fantastic today! The sun has been shining all day long and the sky has been a brilliant bright blue - dotted with only a few whispy clouds. Having come off the mountain and looked in the mirror I regretted not topping up the suncream more regularly throughout the day, and walking around resort it seems as though I’m not the only one with rosy cheeks and a red nose!

The temperature was forecasted to be around -13 degrees but it’s felt much warmer thanks to the sunshine and low winds around 5kmh an hour. A tank top and long-sleeved thermal top was enough to keep me warm, although the bitter cold could be felt whilst on the chairlifts.

The heavy snowfall of recent days means that there’s brilliant coverage both on and off piste. The consistency of the snow is soft and powdery, and even on the piste you can enjoy the sensation of gliding soundlessly down the mountain.

My favourite run was the black Mirador run that comes down from the Cubil lift. The snow coverage on the piste was great which provided the confidence to tackle a slightly steeper run, and luckily the piste wasn’t too spoilt with moguls.

Most of my day today was spent exploring some of the many off piste opportunities that Grandvalira has to offer. The powder levels are so deep right now so it’s been an absolute dream to ride.

One of my favourites off piste runs was the “Fields of Joy” which can be accessed off the top of the blue Port run by the Antennes chairlift. The snow here had been hardly touched meaning that we could make our mark by drawing our own lines in the thick fresh snow. The first section of this run is wide and open meaning you can get lots of turns in, while the bottom section involves weaving in and out of trees. The run ends up a 5-10 minute walk from the Grau Roig car park, but the adrenaline you get from this off piste riding is worth every step back to the bottom of the Antennes chairlift.

The forecast for tomorrow is looking very similar to today - clear blue skies, sunshine, low winds of 7kmh and temperatures of -8. Don’t forget your suncream and get your powder legs on because it’s going to be a good one!

The snow has been falling all afternoon in Pas de la Casa and is forecast to continue tomorrow too. Although fresh, the snow felt a little wet as it landed on the pistes due to the milder temperatures we’ve experienced today and over the last few days; but this means that the slopes are currently nice and soft, and maintaining good snow coverage. Despite the snow, it didn’t actually feel too cold on the mountain, and the lack of wind

The visibility on the mountain has varied as the conditions changed throughout the day. In the morning the sky was relatively clear meaning that we could see clearly, however by afternoon low clouds began to engulf Grandvalira Pas de la Casa and Grau Roig and the light became flat, hindering our visibility. As always, orange or yellow lensed goggles are the best choice for low light conditions like we had today.

As Group Lessons start on a Monday the slopes were busy with people starting their first day of ski school today, however there was still virtually no wait time for the chairlifts. On Monday and Saturday mornings from around 9:15am and afternoons from 1:30pm the queue for the gondola up to Ski School can stretch quite a way though, particularly in Half-Term week or public holidays. If you want to avoid waiting then simply walk up Avinguda D’Encamp road past Rentaski hire shop, and through the car park to the Ski School. This should only take around 5-10 minutes at the most, and as it’s slightly uphill it’s a great way to warm up on a cold winter morning! If you’re coming to Pas de la Casa soon and want to know how to check in for ski school then you can watch our video here:

During weekends and busy periods such as the school holidays, the red Directa run that leads down into Pas de la Casa is often busy as it’s the most popular, direct run back into resort. As the visibility was low and Directa was looking pretty populated I decided to take the red Llac run which veers off to the right at the top of the slope. Llac was one of my favourite runs of the day because it was nice and quiet, and the snow was less disturbed than the top of Directa which is often moulded by skiiers into a natural mogul field.

More snowfall is expected tomorrow and temperatures will be around -6 degrees. By mid-week we can expect to see sunshine and clear blue skies return to Grandvalira, however the temperature is forecast to drop to around -14 degrees so if you’re coming to visit soon then make sure you pack plenty of thermals!

This morning started off relatively clear and sunny but by mid-late afternoon thick low clouds had surrounded the mountain, reducing the visibility to around 10 metres. The bright sunshine behind the clouds casted a flat white light on the slopes, however the visibility did improve at intervals when the clouds begun to clear a little.

Although the visibility was low, the slopes are still maintaining good snow coverage so there was no need to worry about any hard compact areas.

The stark white colour that surrounded ya made the landscape look extra wintery today, however the temperature was actually nice and mild around 2 degrees, meaning that just two thin thermals were enough to keep me warm. There was very little wind today (10kmh) so there wasn’t even much of a chill on the chairlift.

Due to the mild temperature the snow this afternoon was soft and a little slushy in places which can be slow going at times but is also great for those wanting to build confidence learning new skills.

Although it’s the Half Term school holidays the slopes and lifts weren’t as busy as expected. As usual, Grandvalira Grau Roig was quieter than Grandvalira Pas de la Casa and as there isn’t really a residential here (except the Igloo Hotel and Grau Roig Hotel), and the slopes of this sector can only be accessed via driving or by chairlifts.

The temperature is set to drop tomorrow to around -7 degrees and moderate snowfall has been forecasted so if you’re headed up the mountain make sure you wrap up warm! Low light goggles (orange or yellow lenses) are also recommended to help provide clarity in low visibility conditions.

It’s day two of the UK half term school holidays and so far the weather conditions in Grandvalira Pas de la Casa have been good to us! This morning we were blessed with blue skies and sunshine, and thanks to the heavy snowfall last week the snow conditions on the mountain are absolutely brilliant. There’s great coverage on the pistes, and there’s still even some opportunity for off piste riding such as to the left of the red Moreto run and red Diagonal run towards the Antennes lift in Grandvalira Grau Roig.

As it’s half term the pistes have been busier than usual, so we headed to Grandvalira Grau Roig where the pistes are generally much quieter as there is no residential area in this sector. My favourite run in this sector today was the red Montmallus run. You have to brave a drag lift up to the top of the run but it’s so worth it. Surrounded by snow covered trees you really feel like you’re in a winter wonderland. At the bottom of Montmallus is the Grau Roig Imaginarium circuit which is a perfect little route for those with young kids. Decorated with obstacles and friendly characters the circuit is great for helping children to improve their technique and build confidence on the slopes.

The temperatures have been as low as -12 degrees, but the wind has been relatively low 10 kilometres per hour so it’s not felt too cold. Just a couple of decent thermals under my jacket has been enough to keep me warm, and after a few runs I was baking like a potato.

The visibility has varied throughout the day, alternating from clear visibility when the sun was shining, to a flat white light when grey clouds filled the sky. Days when the visibility is varied category 2 or 3 goggles are best as they best suited for all round conditions.

By afternoon, the sun had disappeared, the sky clouded over and the snow begun to fall -and is still falling heavily now. Tomorrow there will be occasional light snow fall, temperatures of -7 and winds of 28kmh so layer up and break regularly to keep warm!

It’s been another bitterly cold day here in Pas de la Casa – the temperature has been around -10 degrees, however thanks to the 10 kmh north-westerly winds it’s felt more like -15 degrees at times – particularly whilst sat on the chairlifts. The sun has been shining for the majority of the day, but I was definitely glad I had decided to wear three long sleeved thermals under my jacket this morning. Cautious of the sunshine and wind, today was also a day for whacking on the suncream and pulling my neck buff up around my mouth to keep my lips from going numb.

Although it’s been cold, we’ve still had a fantastic time on the mountain thanks to the brilliant snow conditions on the slopes. Last week’s heavy snowfall which lasted for several days until Tuesday has provided excellent coverage on the pistes and the snow is still soft and fluffy in most places, making for a nice cruisy ride down the mountain.  

With the sun shining bright in the sky this morning we were able to enjoy the beautiful 360 mountain views of Grandvalira. By around 3pm though the skies had become grey and the temperature seemed to drop by a few more degrees, which made it seem like more snow could start falling from the sky any moment.

The change in weather soon affected the visibility on the mountain as the combination of the sunshine and white-grey clouds created a flat-white light which makes it difficult to judge the terrain of the slope. Although riding in flat-white light can sometimes be challenging, it can also be good fun and beneficial to your technique as it forces you to be less concerned with the few metres of piste in front of you, and instead concentrate on how the mountain feels underneath your board or skis.

My favourite run of the day was the blue Tubs run which veers off from the red Directa run coming from Coll Blanc towards the resort. Joined by Yann, one of Pas de la Casa’s finest snowboard instructors, I took advantage of the great snow conditions by practicing some carving on this nice, wide cruisy blue that runs under the TSD4 Pas de la Casa four man chairlift. If you’re wanting to get your ‘ski legs’ back after some time away from the slopes then Tubs is definitely recommended! It’s also one of the runs which is illuminated for night skiing on Thursday nights until 8pm – so you’ve got even more time to get your snow fix!

Tomorrow we will see the resort get much busier as people begin to arrive in Pas de la Casa for the UK Half-Term School holidays. If you are arriving on Monday and still need to hire your equipment please note that today is the last day for taking advantage of our 30% online pre-booking discount for equipment rentals:

You can collect your equipment from Rentaski or Lake Esqui in Pas de la Casa after 3pm the day before you go skiing. You can also collect your lift pass, lunch vouchers and lesson tickets from the Grandvalira Lift Pass & Ski School office before 4pm the day before.

Rentaski, Lake Esqui and the Lift Pass & Ski School office are all located just a short walk from the slopes. See the map here: www.pasdelacasa.com/map-pas

If you are one of the many people lucky enough to be coming to Pas de la Casa this weekend or next week make sure you pack plenty of warm thermal layers, thick socks, a decent neckbuff and insulated waterproof gloves as the temperature is due to remain around -10 to -14 degrees, and more snowfall is on the way!

For the last five days the snow has been falling thick and heavy in Grandvalira Pas de la Casa. The resort has been painted a beautiful stark white, and the snow coverage on the slopes is absolutely fantastic. The maximum depth of snow on the mountain is around 155cm but you don’t even need to venture off the pistes to experience the sensation of riding powder.

The visibility today has been very low due to low cloud, high winds and snowfall. It’s been a challenge to navigate on the mountain, and the flat white light and clouds can sometimes be disorientating, but having orange lenses goggles helped to provide some visual clarity on the slopes. On days like today when visibility is impaired its best to make sure you pay attention to the piste markers so that you don’t lose your bearings.

The temperature has been around -10 degrees, but it felt much colder thanks to the wind. Three layers under my jacket and a fleece neck buff kept me warm enough throughout the day, but by the end of the day my hair was frozen into ratty dreadlocks, and just a few moments without gloves on was enough to make my hands feel numb.

Over the next few days the conditions are due to change dramatically - instead of snow and clouds we will be graced with sunshine and clear skies; however the temperature will remain very cold at around -13 degrees so wrap up warm and enjoy the amazing snow conditions!

The temperature has been around -1 degrees but just a tank top under my jacket has been enough to keep me warm.

With the sun shining so bright we’ve kept our goggles on all day to protect our eyes, so we’ve also been lathering up on the suncream throughout the day to make sure we don’t end up with awkward goggle tan lines.

Thanks to the heavy snowfall a few days ago the slopes are still an absolute dream to ride. The terrain is a little choppy in places such as the top of the red Directa and Pista Llarga runs due to all the moguls which have been formed over the last few days by skiers following lines. For a snowboarder riding moguls can be a little challenging, but if you’re confident making turns and you can stay in control then it’s also a lot of fun.

My favourite run of the day was the red Moreto run which comes down from the Cubil lift into Grau. Although it’s a steep run, the piste is relatively wide which means there’s plenty of room for getting in lots of turns, but if you want to you can also straight line and get some good speed up - perfect for the adrenaline junkies!

The forecast tomorrow is looking very similar today so if you’re headed up the mountain it’s bound to be another good one! With the sun shining all day it’s the perfect chance to soak up the rays on the terrace of Coll Blanc during happy hour 3-5pm. Just don’t forget the suncream!

The snow has arrived in Grandvalira Pas de la Casa and we couldn’t be happier!

It’s been a cold day on the mountain, with temperatures around -10 degrees and the wind at 37 kilometres per hour. Three long sleeved layers were just about enough to keep me warm, meanwhile I covered my face with a good, thick neck buff to protect myself from the bitter cold wind that can often leave your face feeling cracked and rosy cheeked at the end of the day.

The visibility on the mountain has been very low today due to the snowfall, wind and flat white light, so at times it was quite a challenging ride which required much more concentration than usual. The awesome snow conditions made up for the poor visibility though as it was so much fun riding through the thick fresh powder that covered the slopes from top to bottom.

As the visibility was low we decided it was safer to stick to the piste where we knew there wouldn’t be any unexpected obstacles in our way; however at times we decided to treat ourselves by veering off to the side of the pistes where the snow was even softer and thicker.  

My favourite run of the day was the black Mirador run that comes down from the Llac de Cubil lift back into Grau Roig. Although a black run, it’s not actually too steep (it actually feels more like a red run), and it’s a great slope to ride on days like today when there’s plenty of thick fresh powder to break your fall.

Tomorrow is forecast to be another cold day with temperatures of -8 degrees, northerly winds of 36km and more snowfall on its way so if you’re headed up the mountain make sure you wrap up warm with plenty of layers and use some low-light (or orange lensed) goggles if you have them!

The forecast for today predicted temperatures of -3 degrees and winds of 25kmh however it’s felt relatively mild in Grandvalira Pas de la Casa today - and actually, just a tank top under my snowboarding jacket has been enough to keep me warm.

The sun has been shining throughout the day and there’s been very little cloud so we’ve been making sure to splash on the sunscreen regularly to avoid catching a goggle tan.

The snow conditions on the slopes are currently varied with some hard compact patches in some places - particularly in higher, more exposed spots like at the top of the Pic Blanc chairlift which is more exposed and wind affected.

By afternoon the snow became soft and a little slushy in Grau Roig, although the red Pista Llarga and Directa runs were nice and grippy.

My favourite run of the day was the blue Pastora run that leads into Grau Roig from the top of the Antennes lift. Pastora was nice and quiet - we only saw a handful of people despite it being a long winding run and the snow conditions were pretty good too.

On the final run home we passed Coll Blanc which was packed with people enjoying the sunshine and the beats coming from the sound system. Not a bad way to spend the afternoon that’s for sure!

We’ve been completely spoilt with the weather conditions in Grandvalira Pas de la Casa and Grandvalira Grau Roig this week and today has been no exception with clear blue skies, warm sunshine and virtually no wind on the mountain.

The slopes are maintaining good snow coverage and have become softer in the afternoon thanks to the beautiful sunshine we’ve been graced with all day long.

Today I was riding with a friend who was new to snowboarding so we decided to stick to the cruisey blue runs that Grandvalira Pas de la Casa has to offer. Tubs in particular is a great run to warm up on as its a short run which isn’t too steep, and the piste is nice and wide offering the perfect opportunity to build up confidence linking turns. After a few warm up laps we headed for Port and Pastora which are both nice and gentle long runs with plenty of bends and beautiful mountain views.

Later on we headed to Refugi del Llac de Pessons restaurant via the Camí de Pessons run which - marked as a red - is actually relatively gentle and easy going. We decided to take advantage of the brilliant weather conditions and stopped for a well-earned drink and a little sunbathing on the terrace.

Refugi del Llac de Pessons restaurant is a little pricier than other restaurants on the mountain but the quality of food is worth every penny. If you fancy treating yourself then be sure to check out the Amelie experience, where from midday to 4pm you can sample oysters and French champagne, alongside other premium products such as foie gras on toast, salmon, and strawberries with chocolate...delicious!

Today has been another absolutely gorgeous day here in Grandvalira Pas de la Casa and Grandvalira Grau Roig. We’ve enjoyed clear blue skies and sunshine, and although the forecast predicted temperatures of -3 degrees it’s definitely felt much warmer.

With two thermals on underneath my jacket it wasn’t long till I was working up a bit of the sweat riding in the sunshine, but I was certainly grateful for the extra layers when at the top of the Llac de Cubil and Pic Blanc chairlifts due to the 25kmh winds.

On windy days like today its best to avoid the higher, more exposed pistes and head to the slopes which are more sheltered from the wind by surrounding mountains such as the red Camí de Pessons run in Grandvalira Grau Roig. 

The slopes have retained great snow coverage since the heavy snowfall last week and by the afternoon the snow had become soft and a little slushy thanks to the sunshine beating down on the pistes.

My favourite ride of the day was on the red Directa run which comes down into the resort. Directa is often one of the busier, more popular runs with skiers and snowboarders all weaving in and out of each other; however today the piste was virtually deserted providing the perfect opportunity to practice perfecting my turns on a steeper slope, and to enjoy the adrenaline of gaining some good speed.

Inspired by the beautiful sunny weather, we ended the afternoon with a well deserved beer and burger on the terrace of Pas83 which looks out onto the slopes. With upbeat music playing through the speakers, there was a great atmosphere in the air making it a great way to unwind after a good few hours of snowboarding.

It’s been a cold day on the mountain today with temperatures of -8 degrees and winds at 20kmh, so we headed to Grau Roig where it’s generally more sheltered from the elements thanks to the surrounding mountains.

The skies remained grey throughout most of the day, casting a flat white light across the mountain; however by late afternoon the clouds cleared a little and it was possible to see shades of blue colouring the sky.

The slopes are retaining great snow coverage after the heavy snowfall at the start of the week, and in the afternoon we were graced with a little light snowfall. Due to the cold temperatures the snow cannons were blasting more snow on the pistes, enhancing the nice cruisey ride.

My favourite run of the day was the red Directa run heading back to Pas de la Casa. The sun had begun to set behind the mountains casting a beautiful warm glow over the slopes, and the low clouds had started rolling in, making for some really atmospheric scenery. The snow coverage on Directa was light and fluffy, and the piste was relatively quiet meaning that I could get lots of turns in on at the top of the slopes which is relatively steep.

The weather is forecasted to remain cold over the weekend with more snow expected on Sunday. If you’re headed up the mountain then wrap up warm and wear plenty of layers!

What another incredible day in Grandvalira Grau Roig and Pas de la Casa today! The sun has been shining all through the day and the conditions have been very good to us.

Thanks to the heavy snow fall on Sunday the coverage on the pistes have been absolutely amazing throughout. Like yesterday though we spent very little time on marked runs as there was so much thick deep powder to be explored off piste. Again, one of the best places for off piste riding was through the “rabbit fields” which runs parallel to the Red Moreto run. Here you can ride in and out of snow covered trees and there’s virtually no one else to be seen meaning we had the complete freedom to make our own tracks in the snow. Yes, that’s right - even two days after the fresh snow there was still plenty of untouched snow to ride through.

Another great opportunity for off piste riding could be found to the right of the Directa run as you ride down into the town. The snow here was so thick and great for those less familiar with riding in powder as there’s no trees to dodge, and if you’re feeling a little overwhelmed then you can always head back onto the piste.

Despite the sunshine it felt pretty chilly on the mountain due to the wind which was particularly strong in higher places such as the top of the Cubil and Pic Blanc lifts, however a few layers and a decent neck buff was enough to combat the cold temperature.

Temperatures are forecasted to drop and moderate snowfall is forecasted tomorrow which and we can’t wait to get back up the mountain! Wrap up warm and enjoy the snow!

This afternoon we hit the slopes in Grandvalira Grau Roig and we have not stopped smiling since! With lot’s of fresh snow having arrived over the last couple of days, the snow conditions on the mountain today have been absolutely incredible.

The snow coverage on the pistes was brilliant all round, however we spent most of our time riding the thick, deep, beautiful fresh white powder off-piste. In particular, the so-called “rabbit fields” just to the left of the top of the Cubil lift and red Moreto run provided an awesome opportunity to practice our off-piste riding and we had so much fun weaving in and out of the snow-covered trees.If you're riding off-piste though be sure to go with a friend or a group of people as there's safety in numbers, and besides - riding with a group of people and having someone to laugh with when you fall over is always so much more enjoyable!

On powder days, steep slopes are your friend meaning that you can push yourself to be a little more daring and you don’t need to worry about hurting yourself if you bail. Of course, riding off piste can be challenging at times but gliding fast and soundlessly over soft, white fluffy snow really is one of the most exhilarating feelings you will ever experience as a snowboarder or skiier. It’s liberating, fun and addictive, and the adrenaline you feel afterwards is like no other feeling you’ll likely experience from day-to-day sports or a workout at the gym.

The weather conditions remained relatively calm and stable throughout the day, although in the late afternoon the wind had picked up a little, numbing our faces. Although the visibility this morning was marred a little by flat white light, by afternoon the blinding white clouds had cleared and the blue skies provided a better light to navigate the mountain. The temperature is set to remain cold over the next few days (around -5 to -9 degrees) and more snowfall is expected towards the end of this week, so if you’re headed up the mountain then be sure to wrap up warm and layer up!

With the conditions so brilliant right now we’ll most definitely be heading up the mountain again tomorrow afternoon, so watch this space for an updated snow report on the conditions and the best places to go!

This afternoon we were graced with beautiful weather conditions in Grandvalira Pas de la Casa and Grau Roig - blue skies, mild temperatures and very little wind. Surrounded by snowy mountains it’s easy to forget that you can still get burnt, so it’s always wise to lather on the suncream throughout the day to prevent the awkward reverse-panda goggle tan often modelled by people returning home after their skiing holiday.

Although it has been relatively mild throughout recent days, temperatures have continued to drop to below freezing overnight meaning that the snow has become harder compact in many areas, particularly first thing in the morning. The snow conditions on the mountain are therefore currently varied, so it pays to be cautious and take care when riding the steeper red runs.

By afternoon the snow on the majority of runs in Grandvalira Grau-Roig had been softened by the non-stop sunshine, making for a much smoother and controlled ride. Certainly, on days like today it’s a good idea to follow the sunshine and stick to the pistes which have been softened up by the sun throughout the day.

The red Moreto run coming down for TSD4 Cubil was brilliant fun to ride due to the sea of soft moguls that have been formed, turning the piste into a mini mountain playground; meanwhile great snow coverage can also be found on the red Cami de Pessons run which is well-sheltered from the wind which, in higher more exposed part, can sometimes blow away the snow from the pistes.

Another bonus of the good weather conditions today was the lack of layers required underneath my jacket – simply just a single vest base layer and fleece was enough to keep me warm, and in the sunshine even this minimal amount of clothing felt too much at times!

Tonight marks the start of the traditional Spanish Three Kings festival, so if you’re in Pas de la Casa this evening then you can expect to see a Torchlit descent down the red Directa run into the town, fireworks, hot chocolate, music and other surprises to celebrate the festival. For those of you who will be attending, we hope you have a brilliant night!

Is been a cold, wet, and snowy afternoon today in Grandvalira Pas de la Casa due to the light rain and snowfall that has been falling on and off throughout the day.

Navigating the mountain this afternoon was particularly difficult thanks to the flat white light and low clouds surrounding the mountains, and the visibility worsened as water droplets formed on my goggles. By late afternoon though the sun started to break through the clouds and the rain and snow eased off, making the final runs of the day much more easy going.

The red Directa run that leads down to Pas de la Casa town was busy with lots of people weaving their way down the piste, so I made my way to Grau Roig which is known for being much quieter. The red Montmalus run was virtually deserted, and I had a great time riding the thicker snow to the side of the pistes.

The snow on the slopes was softer from the milder temperature and rain that had fallen earlier on, but the overall coverage was still good on the majority of runs. With temperatures dropping to -7 degrees tomorrow more snowfall is expected, and we cant wait for another powder day. High winds are forecasted though so we advise that you wrap up warm, wear a neck buff and stick to the more sheltered runs in Grandvalira Grau Roig!

For the last two days the snow has been dumping down hard on Grandvalira-Pas de la Casa and both the mountain and the resort has been covered in a thick, fluffy layer of white powder. With so much fresh snow waiting for me I couldn’t wait to hit the slopes this afternoon, so with a smile on my face I took the TSD4 Pas de la Casa chair lift up to the top of the mountain.

As it’s the Christmas holidays it was unsurprising to see the red Directa run much busier than in recent weeks with a mixture of families, groups and individuals weaving their way down to the foot of the slopes. However heading down the Pista Tobogan run towards Grau Roig the slopes were so quiet meaning that I was able to relax and enjoy having the fresh snow all to myself.

With heavy grey clouds, gusty winds, and low visibility the weather was initially a stark contrast against the sunshine, low winds and temperatures of -2 degrees that had been originally forecasted. By late afternoon though the skies began to clear, the wind died down and the sunshine even came out just in time for a beautiful sunset behind the mountains around 4:45pm.

Although I didn’t head up the mountain the afternoon, there was still plenty of soft fresh snow covering the pistes and my board hardly made a sound as I rode down the blue Portella run towards the Montamulus button-lift.

As a snowboarder it can take a fair bit of concentration and core strength to survive the ride on a button lift, but the red Montamulus run that comes down from the button lift was so worth it and actually turned out to be my favourite run of the day. Surrounded by trees, the run is well sheltered and there was plenty of thick, deep fresh powder to be found just to the side of the piste and through the treeline.

Tomorrow is expected to be a cloudy day in Grandvalira-Pas de la Casa with winds up to 27kmh, so if you’re headed up the mountain then make sure you layer up. With more snow forecasted over the next 48-72 hours it’s likely we will continue to be treated with more awesome powder days so stay tuned for an updated snow report!

Merry Christmas from Pas de la Casa! We ate so much food yesterday that we were grateful to have an excuse to get up the mountain and burn some energy whilst checking out the conditions.

This morning started off with promising blue skies but by afternoon clouds had engulfed the peaks of the mountains in Grandvalira-Pas de la Casa and Grandvalira-Grau Roig and the sky had turned grey. The absence of sunshine meant that the temperature felt a little cooler, although I was still warm enough in wearing just a long sleeve thermal top and fleece underneath my jacket.

The slopes are maintaining good snow coverage in most places although some areas are still a little hard compact but the snowfall forecasted over the next few days is likely to help soften these patches and provide some more off piste opportunities.

The best snow can currently be found in Grau Roig, and the red Cami de Pessons run made for a good ride as it’s well sheltered and the snow here was nice and soft.

There was noticeably more people on the slopes due to the Christmas holidays, and it was great to see lots of families enjoying quality time together on the mountain. Although busier the slopes didn’t feel crowded and I was able to hop right onto every lift straight away. Perfect!

All in all it’s been a great way to spend Boxing Day today, and I’m sure those on the slopes today would agree too.

It’s been a slightly overcast day in Pas de la Casa and Grau Roig today but the views of the mountains have been as stunning as usual as clouds gathered around the peaks of the surrounding mountains and the sunlight tried to break through.

These conditions meant there was a flat white light which made it a little difficult to see the terrain ahead of me, but luckily the pistes are still maintaining good snow ‭coverage so i didn’t come across any hard or compact patches that caught me off guard.

There was little wind compared to the last couple of days, and as I stood at the top of the red Moreto run it felt particularly sheltered as the surrounding mountains formed a protective barrier from the elements.

With Christmas only a few days away now there are more people starting to hit the slopes, but I was pleased to find that there’s still no wait time for the lifts and that the pistes still seem relatively quiet. This provided the perfect opportunity to challenge myself on the black Mirador run that comes down from the top of the Llac del Cubil lift, knowing that if I were to fall it would be a relatively soft landing.

My favourite run of the day was the final run back to Pas de la Casa via the red Gavatxa run which comes down from the Antennes chair lift. Up here the views were amazing and there was such a stark contrast between the white mountains and the black road in the distance which winds its way down to the town. The thing I love most about being so high up in the mountains is that it allows you to gain some perspective, and in a strange sort of way it’s very humbling and brings you down to Earth.

It’s less than a week until Christmas, but today it felt like Christmas had come early - blue skies, sunshine, and a lot of fresh powder! This was definitely a stark contrast to the conditions yesterday which were characterised by dark grey clouds, heavy snowfall and low visibility.

With the conditions looking so inviting I grabbed my board and decided to head out to Grau Roig which is known for its stunning views and great snow.

Despite the blue skies, there was still a strong, bitterly cold wind that could be felt most on the higher, more exposed parts of the mountain, particularly at the top of the Pla de les Pedres chair lift. Here, the ground looked like a rolling white ocean as the wind blew ripples of snow across the slope. Seeking protection from the wind I decided to make my way towards the Cubil lift via tthe Enradort and Cami Pessons runs would be a little more sheltered by the surrounding mountains. 

Thanks to the heavy snow fall yesterday and last night the slopes had great snow coverage and there were plenty of off-piste opportunities to be had in both Grau Roig and Pas de la Casa. After veering off piste from the red Diagnol run that comes down from the Antennes chair lift I soon found myself riding in knee deep powder which was awesome but challenging! 

For those who are newcomers to off piste riding then I would recommend checking out the snow just off of Directa I beneath the Pic Blanc chair lift in Pas de la Casa. Here it’s not quite so steep, and although soft and plentiful the snow is not so deep that you’ll get stuck if you stop. 

By 3:30pm the sun had begun to sink down behind the mountain, casting a shadow over the slopes in Pas de la Casa. However this was not the end of the day for the many people up at the top of the mountain who were enjoying beers and dancing to the music on Coll Blanc’s terrace. The atmosphere up here was great, but tired, hungry and a little cold it was time for me to head back down to town to refuel and warm up.

It’s been a cold day in Pas de la Casa and Grau Roig today with temperatures dropping to -9 degrees. The wind made its presence felt in the higher, less sheltered parts of the mountain such the top of the Cubil and Pic Negre chair lifts, however we soon warmed up as we began weaving down the tree lined Camí de Pessons and Tortuga runs, and the sunshine provided a little extra warmth too.

The slopes are still quiet and peaceful at the moment, particularly in the Grau Roig sector, although with Christmas fast approaching the mountain will soon become busier.

There’s good snow coverage on the slopes and the snow cannons are helping to keep the pistes nice and soft. There are some small sections of the runs that can be a little hard compact but on the whole the majority of the runs still make for a great ride!

Temperatures are expected to drop another few degrees to -12 tomorrow so if you’re coming to visit over the weekend then make sure you pack lots of layers and wrap up warm!

As I sat on the chair lift making its way up towards Coll Blanc this afternoon it felt like I was up on my way up to heaven. I was completely surrounded by atmospheric milky white clouds and the sun was trying its best to break through at the top of the mountain. As I made my way towards the light I was excited wondering what today’s ride would bring - especially after the snowfall that we had here in Pas de la Casa yesterday.

Even better than being greeted by the pearly white gates of heaven I was instead greeted by the spectacular view of the mountains covered with fluffy white snow, and the run which lay out in front of me was completely empty. Perfect!

In fact, the entire sector of Pas de la Casa and Grau Roig was pretty quiet this afternoon and I was more than happy to take advantage of yesterday’s snow and having the slopes all to myself.

The visibility on this side of the mountain was much clearer with nice blue skies, a little sunshine and very little wind. The sunlight cast shadows on the pistes making the mountain look like crumpled white paper, with each crease marking another run to explore.

It doesn’t matter to me what the weather conditions are like up in Pas de la Casa - the views always manage to take my breath away.

Perhaps my favourite run of the day was the red Diagonal run - the snow here was so soft and thick so the ride through this was a lot of fun!

After making friends with a Ukrainian skier at the top of the Antenes lift I decided to finish up my afternoon and head back to Pas de la Casa for some Apres via the blue Pista Port run, feeling fulfilled and pleased with the conditions.

It’s been another great day here in Pas de la Casa and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the season has in store for us.

More slopes and lifts have been opened in the Pas de la Casa and Grau Roig sectors over the last few days and it’s been great to see the season’s first visitors taking advantage of the blue skies and clear conditions that have graced the mountain.

The slopes have been a little more populated due to the arrival of Spanish visitors who have come to Grandvalira to make the most of their Public Holidays this week; however there is still no wait time for the lifts and there’s plenty of the piste for everyone!

Pas de la Casa has retained a good level of snow on the slopes since the heavy snowfall three days ago, and most parts of the runs were feeling soft and easy under my board. There are small sections of some runs which are a little hard compact at the moment, however more snowfall is expected tomorrow and over the weekend which is great news.

My favourite run of the day had to be Pista Port – a nice, easy going blue run which snakes its way down the mountain back into Pas de la Casa town. With the sun starting to go down behind the mountains this made for an atmospheric final run of the day – and better yet, there was hardly anyone else to be seen (or rather, to see me fall over)! It’s a good job the snow was soft, otherwise I’m sure I would have gained a bruise or two.

With more snowfall forecasted over the next few days make sure you watch this space for the latest snow data and an updated snow report. In the meantime, happy skiing/snowboarding!

Today the slopes of Grandvalira opened marking the start of another winter season here in Pas de la Casa. Having walked through the town in heavy snowfall last night it was no surprise to wake up this morning and see Pas de la Casa in a foot of deep of snow, and this definitely added to our excitement for the day ahead!

There was limited opening on the mountain due to the weather conditions, but many parts of the slopes were soft and powdery and were a dream to ride.

The day started off cold so we were grateful for the additional layers we put on this morning, but after a few runs our blood was pumping and we were riding on a high despite the temperature.

With more snowfall on its way we are excited for the weeks to come and are confident that 2017/18 will be another cracking season.

Recently you may have been fooled into thinking it's later in the year than it actually is, with fresh snow falling in Grandvalira (even though it is only 13 weeks until Christmas).  Snow this time of year isn't uncommon as the temperature drops as the days get shorter, but unfortunately it doesn't stay around for a long time.  It won't be until November that we see the proper winter snow fall and start to settle.

If it has got you excited for winter and your holiday to Pas de la Casa make sure you are fully prepared by booking all your ski extras and airport transfers here, don't forget as well to bookmark this page as we keep you up-to-date with regular snow reports written by our team in resort and the latest snow forecasts as well.  Grandvalira is due to open on the 2nd of December (conditions permitting) and we can't wait to get back on the slopes!

In the blink of an eye we have reached the final few days of the season, and what a season it has been.  Everything from epic powder days to bluebird skies, and that's just been April! It's been a great year and with a little sadness we say this will be our last snow report of the season.

For the middle of April, there is still great coverage in the Grandvalira area, especially in the Pas de la Casa and Grau Roig sectors due to the height of the resorts.  Even those on first lifts will fond the snow soft due to the light, sunny mornings but watch out for the off harder patch as you pass through areas or runs that are in the shade.  When heading down a run, have a quick look at the conditions in advance to ensure you know what is up ahead.

The sun is extremely strong at the moment, and although the temperatures are peaking at the early 20s, the reflection from the snow means you need to keep the exposed parts of your skin protected with high factor sun cream.  It's an idea to ensure you have the lightest protective clothing possible to ensure you keep cool and enjoy the spring conditions.

With one more weekend to go, there is still plenty to head out early morning and get some miles under your feet then to relax early afternoon soak up the sunshine and enjoy a well-earned Apres ski drink.

Cheers to another great season in Andorra, we hope you have enjoyed reading our updates and we look forward to seeing you all next season.

This week the good temperatures have been prominent in the sector of Pas and Grau Roig, although throughout the week there have been some overcast days and with winds slightly stronger than what we are used to for this time of the year, but this has benefited and contributed to the good conditions of coverage and snow.

Also this week in Pas we have been able to enjoy the World Cup of Speed Skiing that has taken place in Grandvalira Grau Roig (Riberal Slope).

As we have already mentioned, the visibility throughout the week has been very good, although it has varied during the day from being cloudy to sunny and vice versa, therefore we recommend glasses that adapt to all conditions.  It’s also very important to have a good sunscreen (+50 is highly recommended), lastly wear layers since, for example, today early in the morning temperatures were above 15 degrees and at the end of the day we’ve had  temperatures of 5 and light snow.

We are already in April and the snow has kept in very good condition, first thing in the day compact and as the day goes by it becomes spring snow and although you have to adapt your technique, of course you can enjoy it equally.

Since the resort is quite quieter, all the slopes are virtually empty so skiing is an genuine pleasure, especially Direct I and II in Pas de la Casa.

We are in April and in Andorra it’s still snowing, last night it has begun to snow and it is expected to continue snowing until today leaving up to 20 cm of fresh snow.

March and April is being great in terms of snow conditions, we have fantastic coverage, and the snow couldn’t be any better, packed powder in the morning and as the day passes it softens however since the runs are not very busy, the snow stays good in both low and high runs until well into the afternoon.

This week we have really enjoyed absolutely all the runs so picking one is quite difficult, but our team has really enjoyed Camí de Pessons and Montmalús (for its views) and Moretó which is a very wide red run, that over the past few days, has been very quiet. This run goes parallel to the black run Mirador that this week was better than ever, perfectly pisted and with spring snow that has delighted all the skiers in the area.

As for Pas de la Casa all the slopes were perfectly groomed, very little skiers or snowboarders around so we could enjoy the full width of the track to do some carving, and a little bit of racing. Our team have voted and the winners of the week are Isards (blue) Direct I (red) and Taupes (black).

Wow it is hard to believe it is March here in Pas de la Casa! Spring skiing has taken on a new meaning with one of the best powder days of the season today.

The snow started on Wednesday night and has barely let off. The biggest drump was last night with almost 50cm falling but the snow has continued to come down heavy all day today. With the snowstorm, today has also been windy at times and incredibly cold so we would recommend wrapping up warm!

Today's strong winds saw the link between Pas de la Casa and Grau Roig closed but there was still plenty to enjoy in Pas de la Casa itself. The wind is due to drop and the sun come out tomorrow, and with all of the weeks snow, it is set to be a great day! We will be up for first lift.

One of the best things about skiing in late March is how empty the runs are - and on the reds and the blacks there was barely anyone about! The blue runs were nicely pisted with the fresh snow for everyone to enjoy.

There has never been a better time to book a last minute spring ski holiday to Andorra!

It's been a brilliant week in Pas de la Casa with bluebird days, little wind and quiet slopes!

With spring conditions in resort, the best snow is to be found first thing in the morning as it can soften up towards the end of the day. Some slopes can become slightly lumpy later in the afternoon, but if you stick to higher reds we found the conditions to be great all day.

Our favourite run this week was black run Granota in Grau Roig where you go through the trees.

Now we are in to mid-March, the resort is quietening down and the slopes have been nicely quiet all week in both Pas de la Casa and Grau Roig.

The high temperatures mean few layers are needed but you definitely need to keep applying suncream as the sun is very strong.  We would also recommend bringing sunglasses for lunchtime and breaks.

You can see the snow conditions for yourself with our video snowboarding in Pas de la Casa yesterday here.

After a windy start to the week, it has been beautifully mild since Wednesday and we have been enjoying bluebird skies and warm temperatures.  The sun has been really strong, so sun cream has been very important as it is easy to burn! This has made for great visibility as well.

The best snow is to be found in the morning as the warm temperatures can mean that the snow softens up after lunch and the busier runs can get a bit lumpy. The highest slopes have the best snow conditions, so we would recommend keeping heading to the top of Pas de la Casa and Grau Roig.  Our favourite run today was red run Pista Llarga.

There were high winds on Monday and Tuesday but since then the winds have dropped so few layers are needed.

There is 25cm of snow on the forecast for tomorrow night with temperatures due to drop so it is the perfect time to think of a last minute ski holiday.

After a beautiful week of bluebird skies, last night saw the resort transformed with 40cm of fresh snow overnight! We got up early to enjoy the powder, but there was still plenty left untracked at lunchtime!

Due to some wind today, the link between Grau Roig and Soldeu was shut but this still left plenty of the mountain to enjoy. The sun kept making its way back out, so with some well-timed coffee breaks you could stil enjoy good visibility.  Temperatures were mild but cold enough to keep the powder in great condition all day, and we are looking forward to being back on it again tomorrow.

With the black runs unpisted, we enjoyed Mirador early in the day but it became more challenging as the day went on as it got more tracked out.  We enjoyed red run Montmalus and going through the trees in Grau Roig.

The runs have been surprisingly quiet for a Saturday with minimal queues today so lots of space to enjoy the fresh snow.

Snow has been coming down intermittently throughout the day with another 14cm due to have come down by tomorrow morning.  More snow is forecast for Sunday and Monday then we are hoping to get the blue skies back to enjoy it!

It has been a mild week in Pas de la Casa with temperatures touching 10 degrees in sunny spots. This has made for great visibility and bluebird days with Thursday the only day we saw clouds in the sky last week. There have been some low winds encouraging us to put on an extra layer over the last two days, but today we saw the wind drop back down again.

Despite the warm temperatures, coverage remains great with the full 210km of Grandvalira's pistes open.  The best snow is to be found in the mornings as it is softening up and get a bit sticker on lower runs later in the day.

The slopes have been fairly busy this week thanks to the half term rush, hence we took advantage of the quieter spots over in Grau Roig where the only lifts that had any real queues were the main link lifts between sectors. We found many of the red runs and particularly black runs to be almost empty - making our favourite run this week the black run Granota in Grau Roig.

If you're travelling with children, make sure to check out the Imaginarium area in Grau Roig where there are fun characters and obstacles to play around. It's Carnaval this weekend, so there are lots of people on the slopes in fancy dress too!

As we type the outlook for the next 7 days is varied with temperatures falling sharply and a few snow showers forecast throughout the week. We start March in a strong position with 100% of slopes open, temperatures dropping and some fresh snow on the forecast.

After a snowy start to the week with Monday's snowstorm, we have been lucky to enjoy bluebird skies the rest of the week! Tuesday saw some low lying clouds but the sun kept making it's way out and has stayed out since Wednesday making for perfect visibility.

The snow is in great condition and there is still some nice powder to be found off piste. All of the pistes are nicely groomed now and all 128 runs (210km of piste) are open. 

Although it has been the British half term week, the slopes have been pleasantly not too busy and lift queues are a maximum 5 minute wait.  We would recommend heading over to Grau Roig for the emptiest runs. Our favourite run this week was the red run Montmalus in Grau Roig, which takes you down through the trees and joins up with the kids Imaginarium area.  It features on our video from Tuesday here.

The forecast for the coming week is more sun, so pack your good visibility lenses and enjoy the restaurant terraces! If you're in Pas de la Casa this week, don't miss the impressive snow sculptures by the main bus stop.

It's been another week of varying weather conditions in Pas de la Casa with 30cm+ of fresh snow on Monday and more falling now!

The snow is in great condition, with generally cool temperatures making it last well.  It's worth getting up early to enjoy the best snow as some of the busier runs can get slightly icier towards the end of the day, although with the fresh snow coming down now we expect this to be different tomorrow!

Thursday was our favourite day of the week as a beautiful bluebird day with perfect visibility and warm temperatures which could be enjoyed on the Olympiades terrace on the slopes! There was music on at the Coll Blanc on the slopes as well which was really busy with lots of dancing.

The resort is getting busier now it's February, so we are enjoying skiing in Grau Roig where the runs are emptier. With every run open, you can cover the full 210km of piste that Grandvalira has to offer. Our favourite run this week is black run Mirador that comes down in to Grau Roig, and for those who want to try a black run for the first time this is one we'd recommend as it is nice and wide.

There is more snow on the forecast for the coming week. For those of you coming to spend half term in Grandvalira, we would recommend packng good thermals as well as goggles for low light and sunny days with the changing conditions.

Snow, sun and wind... this week has seen constantly changing weather in Pas de la Casa!

Yesterday started off snowy, with heavy snow making for reduced visibility but the sun came out at about half 2 making for a beautiful bluebird afternoon. This left the runs in great condition and they were really quiet as lots of people had gone in early to avoid the snow.

The high winds over some of this week has seen the snow get blown around, making for some brilliant powder pockets but also the odd icy patch to watch out for. Head in to the trees in Grau Roig for the best snow on the sheltered runs. The wind has meant that at some points the links between Grau Roig and Soldeu have had to close, but if you do want to go between you can get the L4 bus from the main bus stop to ski the other areas.

This weekend, Grandvalira is hosting the Junior Freeride World Championship at Pic Alt de Cubil in the Encamp sector, with the competition moved to today due to high winds forecast tomorrow.

Also in the forecast is a lot more snow with almost 40cm due tomorrow! It's looking to be another powder week in Pas de la Casa and we can't wait. For daily updates check out our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

The last days in Pas de la Casa have been incredibly variable, from one hour to another the slopes have gone from sunny bluebird skies to snowfall and reduced visibility.

That's why we recommend that if you are heading to Pas this week you must be prepared for everything and do not forget your low light lenses, even if you see the sun in the morning. The temperature hasn’t changed from last week and it still below 0 ° so you should wear at least three layers if you don’t want to be cold in the mountain.

Thanks to all these factors the snow is in optimal conditions! It has snowed at least a few hours during the day and the cold temperature maintains perfectly the texture of the powder that has left thicknesses of up to 150cm in Pas de la Casa, so there is fresh snow for a while!

Due to the amount of snow that has fallen the resort is getting busier as there are many skiers who wants to enjoy the powder.

The piste of the week is red slope Montmalus in the area of ​​Grau Roig, with spectacular views amongst pine forests. The only access is taking the draglift Montmalus that’s why it is one of the quietest slopes of Pas.

Check out our last pictures of Pas de la Casa here.

With new runs opening over the last few days, we have enjoyed exploring the whole domain of Grandvalira, snowboarding between Pas and Soldeu.

Grandvalira now has 115 runs open and the conditions couldn´t be any better in our opinion! Following the heavy snowfall earlier in the week, the snow remains very good with the mornings the best time to enjoy the mountain as it gets slightly stickier towards the end of the day.  The coverage is great thanks to almost 200cm of fresh snow in a week! There are still some runs where the snow has barely been touched although the runs were slightly busier this weekend.

Although we have seen some sunny days, be aware that it is still very cold as the temperatures have been way below 0.  Yesterday the snow started again and this is supposed to continue across today and tomorrow so wrap up for when you are sat on the exposed chairlifts!  We would especially recommend a good pair of socks as we suffered with cold toes yesterday.

Yesterday, we experienced a little bit of wind, especially in the higher points (ie Coll Blanc in Pas de la Casa) but nothing major. As the day passed, the visibility decreased due to clouds coming in bring snow therefore low visibility lenses were needed. 

We have enjoyed many runs, and yesterday we enjoyed playing in the Xavi Snowpark in Grau Roig and blue run Pista Tobogan, a small half pipe slope.

The snow is not letting up in Pas de la Casa and the resort is looking absolutely beautiful.

There has been 50cm+ of fresh snow in recent days so there is loads of powder to enjoy both on and off piste. The resort is very quiet this week, hence there is plenty of opportunity to leave some fresh tracks.

With the snow, unfortunately the wind has come as well today which meant that the higher lifts closed so you couldn't cross over in to Grau Roig this afternoon, but there were still runs to enjoy down to resort level. It is incredibly cold with the wind chill, so make sure you layer up. Due to the heavy snow, visibility was low today and this is set to continue through until Tuesday, so keep the low light lenses on your goggles where possible.

Thanks to the fresh snow, you could enjoy the Montmalus freeride area in Grau Roig this morning - which is one of the best freeride areas in Grandvalira in our opinion.

The forecast is snowy for the rest of the week, with 92cm on the forecast for the next 3 days! Currently there are 132km of piste open, but this should increase as the week goes on.

It has been a beautifully sunny week in Pas de la Casa, but with the cold temperatures the snow cannons have been hard at work to keep the runs in great condition. We are due some more snow this week, with 23cm on the forecast at the moment for Monday to Wednesday!

Currently, Grandvalira has 156km of slopes open, including all links. The best skiing is to be had first thing in the morning at the moment, when the runs are freshly groomed, as some of the slightly busier slopes are getting icier after lunchtime. It is nice and quiet in resort now after the holidays with no lift queues and plenty of room on the slopes.

We have enjoyed practicing in the Xavi Snow Park in Grau Roig, where there are beginner boxes to learn on, as well as black jumps open for those with more experience.

It's been a great week in Pas de la Casa with lots going on, including celebrations for the Spanish Three Kings festival which included costumes, a torchlight descent and firework display on Thursday 5th January. Today sees the opening of brand new Apres bar Diamond CBbC Grandvalira at 6pm which is being managed by the team from Cala Bassa Beach Club in Ibiza.

Happy New Year from Andorra Resorts!

It's been a busy week in Pas de la Casa due to the holiday's but the snow remains in great condition with 153km of piste open, including all of the links between resorts. 

The snow cannons were hard at work today, maintaining the conditions well on piste. One of our favourite runs today was red run Pessons, which takes you past the restaurant overlooking the frozen lake as you go down in to Grau Roig.

Temperatures have dropped this week so we would definitely recommend layering up and there was a cold wind in resort today. However with the sun still out, visibility remains good.

This week in Pas de la Casa, night skiing has opened for the first time this season with the Tubs track and the Solana chairlift open until 8pm on Friday's and Saturday's.  The Iglu hotel also opened this week, where you can stay overnight in Grau Roig in a real igloo!

We wish you a Merry Christmas from the Andorra Resorts Team!

We've loved skiing in Grandvalira over Christmas and Boxing Day... we couldn't think of a better place to spend it than up the mountain! Today we skied from Soldeu to Pas de la Casa and back again, with bluebird skies, great visibility and no wind. The snow is slightly firm first thing in the morning but it did soften up as the day went on and the best skiing is to be had around lunchtime.

We went through the Xavi Snow Park in Grau Roig, and the jumps are in great condition with different boxes and rails to push yourself on.  Our favourite run today was the red run Serrat Pinos with the mixture of steep and flatter sections. As we move in to New Year's week, the runs are fairly busy in Pas de la Casa, but Grau Roig retains its quieter charm.

The forecast is currently showing temperatures dropping from the weekend onwards so looks like some colder weather is on the way...

You can see our pictures from the day on our Facebook page here.

For Boxing Day, many of the bars in the village are putting on live music with a mixture of Christmas songs thrown in!

WIth the sun out yesterday, it was a great day to be up the mountain so we skied in Pas de la Casa and Grau Roig.  Being a Sunday and so close the Christmas, the slopes were busier than the last week but there was still plenty of room with emptier slopes in Grau Roig.

Overall, the snow is in good condition after fresh snow on Friday and there is more snow on the forecast for tonight and tomorrow! With temperatures lowering, the snow cannons have been on and the snow is grippy packed powder so great for improving at any level.

All the links from Pas de la Casa to Soldeu were open and at the moment we are enjoying 136km of slopes! Our favourite run of the day yesterday was red run Serrat Pinos from Grau Roig to Soldeu.

The weather was beautiful with bluebird skies, great visibility and no wind. We stopped for a cold drink on the terrace of the Olympiades hotel in Pas de la Casa to enjoy the views - sunglasses were necessary! There is a great atmosphere for apres and nightlife as the resort is busier with lots of young people this week.

Yesterday we had a few hours to do what we love most, we went skiing from Pas de la Casa to Soldeu; this normally takes around 1.5 hours (for your average intermediate skier) but of course this is dependent on how you ski and also the conditions.

In general the snow conditions were good, just the odd patch of ice with the snow softening up later in the day and in the sunnier spots.

The temperatures remain fairly mild, around 7 degrees, it was a lovely calm day with no wind and the sun shining brighly, therefore perfect visibility.

All the links from Pas de la Casa to Soldeu were open and at the moment we are enjoying 147km of very quiet slopes! Our favourite run of the day yesterday was red run Menera in Grau Roig.

Today we skied Pas de la Casa and Grau Roig before skiing across to Soldeu. The slopes were fairly busy in Pas de la Casa with it being a Sunday and a Spanish bank holiday but over in Grau Roig it was still beautifully quiet! This made our favourite run the red run Pala Nova. With the links between Grau Roig and Soldeu open, we explored the two.

It was a cloudy day, which did make for some varying visibility but also a sprinkling of snow! It was a day for low light lenses on the goggles and a buff with some cold winds.  However, the sun did make it's way out periodically, still making for some beautiful views.

The snow cannons have been hard at work this week and the snow is overall in great condition with packed powder on most runs.

Yesterday was opening day for Pas de la Casa and Grau Roig so we went for a team ski! The slopes were really quiet first thing, giving us plenty of space to find our ski legs and it then started to get slightly busier as the day went on.

With low temperatures, it was snowing lighlty and the snow cannons were firing which will help the base layer continue to build. The sun shone briefly but we were happy that it mainly stayed cloudy as the snow kept coming in.

Our favourite run was red run Directa I in Pas with perfect conditions and soft powder.  We also went over to Grau Roig and skied Pala Nova and Pista llarga where there were pockets of powder, but overall the snow was slightly firmer.

We had a great day, but we are definitely aching a bit today! Check out the conditions for yourself with our pictures from the day under the photos tab here and our opening day video here.

It's less than two weeks until the start of the 2016-17 ski season and already we've received quite a lot of snow and the mountains are turning white.  It's been very cold too so the snow cannons have started to operate too, combining with the natural snowfall.  The mountain is scheduled to open on 26th November, subject to weather conditions.

Sadly it's the final weekend of the season here in Andorra so the last two days to enjoy skiing Pas de la Casa and the Grandvalira area.  We had heavy snow last night, but a bit of wind too, so around 20cm of fresh snow on the mountain.

It's very cold today so wrap up warm, and cloudy too with some snow in the air, so not amazing visibility, although super snow over in Grau Roig.  Hopefully the sun's going to come out tomorrow acording to the forecast so looks like the last weekend is going to be great.

What a powder day to explore Grau Roig and Pas de la Casa! We had over 30cm of fresh snow to enjoy both off-piste and on the actual runs. Everyone has been loving the fluffy snow and certainly making the most of very quiet slopes, wide runs and perfect snow conditions, especially if you are an early bird.

Temperatures are normal for April, warm and sunny, so today it wasn’t necessary to wear lots of layers, just a t-shirt and coat was enough.

Visibility was very good and dark googles or good pair of sunglasses were more than welcome, especially if you are thinking of stopping for a drink, or food and lying on one of the lounges in pessons or just chilling on one of the many terraces over Pas and Grau and the forecast for the rest of the week is to remain the same with a high chance of more snow on Saturday

Grandvalira is closing on Sunday with over 190 km of skiable domain.

Visibility was perfect, with the sun shining high, somne stunning mountain views to take in.  Make sure you pack your sun cream, and enjoy one of the many terraces to sunbathe when you take a breather.  A couple of our favourites are the Cala Bassa terrace in Pas de la Casa and by Lake Pessons in Grau Roig.

Today we hit the slopes of Grandvalira first thing with compact powder, so nice and easy going, getting softer throughout the day.  It's pretty warm and sunny, which is what we love and expect at this time of year, with the snow getting quite soft in the afternoon.

Our Snow Report

We skied from Pas right across to El Tarter this morning, it was a really enjoyable morning of skiing thanks to the snow conditions remaining in top shape, we now have a great base in place thanks to all the heavy snowfall earlier this month, plus we received a light dusting overnight making the skiing smooth and easy.

Slopes are a bit busier than usual thanks to it being Spanish and Portuguese half term, this adds to the time taken to cross the area, however with 208km of slopes open (out of a possible 210km) there is plenty of space for everyone and lots of skiing available. We stuck mainly to the red runs today and even had a little ski through the kids Imaginarium experience, fun for kids and adults alike!

Weather wise, visibility was great and the temperatures have picked up a bit, add to that a lack of wind and it made for perfect pleasant skiing conditions.

All links are open as well as the snowparks (including Snowpark Xavi in Grau Roig) so plenty available to explore and enjoy.

Beautiful day so we are going skiing to check the conditions. Keep an eye on the snow report later on and in our Facebook page for pictures.

17 March 2016

The sun is out and over 40CM OF FRESH POWDER was waiting for us this morning! It was a fantastic morning on the slopes with plenty of beautiful powder snow to enjoy. The pistes have been busier today (as you would expect on a sunshine and powder day), leading to the snow becoming quite choppy and tracked out on some slopes.  We found the best skiing to be had was off piste and playing around in between the slopes where the snow was very soft and easy to glide through.

Visibility was good all day, with plenty of people enjoying the terraces up on the mountain too, however towards the end of the day clouds did start to accumulate around the higher points between Pas and Grau.

All links across Grandvalira were open today and around 207km of slopes, so plenty to explore, although the conditions are great, the tracked out powder can be a little tiring on the legs, so you may need to take it easy if you are aiming to cover some serious kilometres.

14 March 2016

Today we headed up the mountain (from Soldeu) at around 11:00 and were initially greeted by fantastic weather with blue skies and sunshine, however as the day passed a few clouds started to move in in readiness for the forecasted snow, with it the temperatures dropped and the wind started to pick up towards the end of the day, holding us back on our skis a little at times.

We skied from Soldeu back over to Pas and despite the clouds coming in later on visibility was pretty good right across Grandvalira. Snow coverage in general is great, we found the odd icy patch on some of the busier slops but easily avoidable. The best skiing is to be had on some of the quieter slopes where the snow is less disturbed and offering up some really enjoyable conditions, in particular we found a lot of the black slopes quiet and in great condition today, these included Aliga (El Tarter), Avet (Soldeu) and Mirador (Grau Roig), great for challenging the ski legs.

We got to the slopes back in Pas at around 12:30, it was just starting to snow very lightly as per the forecast, we are expecting light snow showers for the next couple of days before a heavier band of snow is due to arrive with us on Wednesday / Thursday.

120 (out of 122) slopes open today, 100% of lifts and links open so a great day to cover a lot of kms and explore the whole area.  The snowparks are still looking good, with plenty of beginners having a go on the smaller jumps in Xavi Snowpark (Grau Roig), we stopped and watched for a little while today and even spotted some brave youngsters (around 5 or 6 yrs) having a go and enjoying themselves, it’s a great fun park for anyone looking to have a go at freestyle for the first time.

We excitedly woke up to heavy snowfall this morning; the clouds were low and had settled in over Pas bringing lots of fresh powder in the process. Visibility was poor, however we headed out to check out the snow conditions nonetheless. Wind was low and all links open across Grandvalira so we planned to ski over to Soldeu, however quickly realised that it probably wasn’t the best idea as the higher up we went it became particularly difficult to see, so we decided to stay local and have a play around in the powder in Pas instead. Snow conditions were fantastic, plenty of powder to enjoy and fresh snow falling most of the day. All in all an enjoyable couple of hours on the slopes, however we are particularly looking forward to the snow clouds clearing tomorrow (fingers crossed) and hopefully a bluebird day to come…

UPDATE: 10 March 2016

AMAZING CONDITIONS today! The clouds did indeed disappear and left us with a perfect bluebird day, the last few days have left approx. 30cm of fresh powder, with bright blue skies today was the ideal day to enjoy it. It’s still not too busy on the slopes and we are looking forward to welcoming the Speed Skiing World Cup this weekend (in Grau Roig). Grandvalira have also indicated that they hope to open 100% of runs this weekend, they have fallen just short so far this season but everything is pointing in the right direction at the moment so let's hope so. However that said, 207km out of 210km this week isn't bad going!

Today we took a nice long ski between Pas de la Casa and Canillo, conditions remain in excellent condition right across Grandvalira, thanks to further consistent snowfall in recent days. The snow has been heavy enough to leave a nice fresh blanket of powder on the slopes, but also not too heavy allowing for some sunny spells to break through and good visibility, meaning we can really enjoy the great snow conditions this week.

Temperatures have remained cold for a while now and nothing much is set to change in the coming days, it hardly made it above freezing today and we were thankful for buffs and gloves higher up and on the lifts.

Not too many people around on the slopes today which is always a bonus, ideal for some relaxed exploring, enjoying the odd sunny spell and some gentle, easy skiing on great snow.

All the links are open right across Grandvalira and 207km (out of 210km) of slopes were available today, there are just a handful of slopes eluding us which means we can’t quite say we have 100% open but it’s very close!

Some of our best runs today included Taupes (black) which was in amazing condition and a real pleasure to ski, as well as Menera (red) over the mountain in Grau Roig. We also took a little ski through the Mont Magic children’s area whilst we were over in Canillo which is a great fun, safe spot for the little ones. Before heading home we had a play around in Xavi snowpark (Grau Roig) which like the rest of Grandvalira right now is in great condition and perfect for trying out a few little tricks and jumps (a much more easy going snowpark than the larger one found El Tarter).

The forecast is showing continued light snowfall with the odd sunny spell in between and a heavier day of snow (maybe up to 20cm) expected on Wednesday. It’s looking like the last month of the season is going to be a good one!

We posted a few pics from today’s skiing on our Facebook page, check them out here.

6 March 2016

POWDER snow conditions today as it has been snowing for the past 3 days! The snowfall has been light to moderate but falling consistently, this has resulted in a nice accumulation of fresh powder across the slopes.

If you are heading up the mountain today dress for the cold weather, we expect temperatures to hit a max of around -4 degrees Celsius and lows hitting a potential -12 with a light wind chill factored in.

Visibility across Pas and Grau is mixed, the clouds are sitting fairly low, so in the clouds it's a little difficult but once away from them it brightens up and improves as you head across the mountain to Soldeu.

All links are open across Grandvalira today with up to 205km of skiable terrain on offer; the slopes are pretty quiet at the moment and providing some great conditions for those arriving this week.

Next week's forecast shows further snow to come with the heaviest fall due on Wednesday, we are enjoying some fantastic consistent snowfall so far this month, and temperatures are set to remain very cold!  

The freestyle areas are all open for anyone looking to practice their tricks, and for the real adrenaline junkies don´t forget that From March 10 to 13 Grandvalira will once again host two trials of the Speed Skiing World Cup (in the Grau Roig sector).

If you are heading up the mountain today dress for the cold weather, we expect temperatures to hit a max of around -4 degrees Celsius and lows hitting a potential -12 with a light wind chill factored in.

Visibility across Pas and Grau is mixed, the clouds are sitting fairly low, so in the clouds it's a little difficult but once away from them it brightens up and improves as you head across the mountain to Soldeu.

All links are open across Grandvalira today with up to 205km of skiable terrain on offer; the slopes are pretty quiet at the moment and providing some great conditions for those arriving this week.

Next week's forecast shows further snow to come with the heaviest fall due on Wednesday, we are enjoying some fantastic consistent snowfall so far this month, and temperatures are set to remain very cold!  

The freestyle areas are all open for anyone looking to practice their tricks, and for the real adrenaline junkies don´t forget that From March 10 to 13 Grandvalira will once again host two trials of the Speed Skiing World Cup (in the Grau Roig sector).

Don't forget you can pre-book your discounted ski extras on our online shop by clicking here.

We look forward to seeing you on the slopes soon!!

A cold day once again in Pas as low cloud and some windy conditions left a cold nip in the air. By midday the clouds started to disappear and the wind died down, leaving some nice sunshine and good visibility later in the day. The snow is still relatively fresh on the slopes after heavy snowfall on the weekend; the groomers have now packed it down with most places resembling packed powder conditions, very enjoyable under foot for skiing / boarding.

It seems to be getting colder by the day with more snow on the forecast from Saturday onwards, leaving the outlook good for those arriving this weekend. Make sure to check back and we will keep you updated!

If you would like to see some photos of the ski area in recent days, then pop across to our Facebook page here, where we have uploaded images from our time on the slopes over the last week or so.

A very cold and blustery day on the slopes today, we tried to stay fairly low in the less exposed areas of the slopes where the weather was better and visibility improved. The higher areas of the mountain were much more susceptible to the high winds and required plenty of layers to cover your face and ears, a balaclava was a welcome piece of kit up there today! Temperatures averaged around -6 degrees Celsius and the gusts of wind strong at times.

NOTE: Due to the winds a few chairlifts were closed today, in particular TSD6 Pla de les Pedres Soldeu which is the main link between Grau Roig and Soldeu/El Tarter.

Run of The Day: Today we took the Montmalús lift (a long button lift near the snowpark in Grau Roig) to the top where you have two options; left will take you down the Montmalus red run, or right will take you down a black run called Granota, we headed on down Montmalús which is one of our favourites, it’s a lovely scenic slope which stretches down between the mountains and is always particularly enjoyable after a recent snowfall, with a white blanket of snow covering the rocks and trees off to the sides, it was a beautiful view.

Even with the strong winds the snow conditions were perfect after a weekend of heavy snow. Local forecasts are showing a mixture of sunshine, cloud and snow showers later this week, temperatures may drop further and we could be in for a day of two of blustery weather before winds die down later this week. Either way, be prepared with plenty of layers and something to cover your face on the lifts this week.

Today Grandvalira had 179km (of a possible 210km) of terrain open, the high winds affecting their ability to open some lifts / runs.

A day not to forget your gloves in Pas de la Casa today as temperatures dropped well below freezing at the summits, however winds have been quite tame today so not too much of an added wind chill thankfully.

It is expected to snow quite heavily in the coming few days so the resorts are hoping to see 100% of the possible 210km of skiable terrain open, and with 198km currently open it’s a good possibility.

The snow cannons have been working hard to make the most of the cold temperatures, so with the extra snow coverage skiing conditions are still very good, the odd icy patch here and there but easily avoidable.

This weekend sees the start of the Women’s World Cup Ski Racing in Grandvalira which is expected to draw crowds of spectators, fans and press, this will likely affect the El Tarter/ Soldeu sectors mostly, however may see increased numbers on the slopes in across Grandvalira in general.

Update: 28 February 2016 AM

The last two days have seen the forecasted snow materialise with consistent (and at times heavy) snowfall throughout the day on Saturday, the snow clouds remain with us on Sunday morning and it’s looking like another snowy day. We will post a further update on conditions once we have had a chance to hit the slopes and check out the conditions for ourselves.

It’s hard to find any negatives about the conditions in Pas and Grau at the moment, today was yet again a beautiful day to enjoy the mountain. The last fresh snowfall was a couple of days ago, therefore the powder has now become packed down offering lovely smooth conditions for skiing, with hardly any bumpy / icy patches to be found.

Temperature wise, lows of -6 degrees Celsius mean a pair of gloves and an extra layer is needed, but the sun shining down across Grandvalira today took the edge off the cold, it actually felt quite pleasant at times.

Currently there is plenty of terrain to go at, the links between all six sectors are open and 206km of slopes are available for you to explore.

A Lovely day in Pas de la Casa today, the snow clouds have parted and left blue skies and fresh snow on the slopes. Even with the sun shining temperatures remain very low hovering between -4 and -8 degrees Celsius, therefore wrapping up warm with plenty of layers is a must.

Fresh, powder snow was plentiful today, and much like the last few days conditions for skiing / boarding are almost perfect. The natural snowfall in recent days coupled with a top up from the snow cannons has left the slopes in prime condition, with almost no icy or bumpy patches. Low winds today have also added to the pleasant conditions.

Snow conditions are improving day by day at the moment and Grandvalira are edging closer to opening 100% of slopes, today we had 206km out of 210km slopes on offer with snow depths gradually improving all the time. We are enjoying some of the best conditions of the season so far, now is the perfect time to come join us!

Yet another beautiful day in Pas today, there were no clouds in sight and the sun was shining, another perfect day for hitting the slopes.  There was the occasional cold breeze nipping away at your face, lows of -5 degrees celsius and highs of zero meant even with the sunshine you needed an extra layer. The fresh powder of recent days has now become groomed snow, still ensuring quality skiing for the most part, there are a few bumpy spots to be found but rare and easily avoidable.

A little tip for you...If you are skiing from Pas de la Casa to Grau Roig, you are more than likely going to take the run Pala Nova (red) down towards the Igloo Hotel, but if you want a slight change, have a look out for the exit to Pista Llarga (red) which is located on the right about half way down the decent of Pala Nova towards the Igloo Hotel, what you’ll find is a lovely open and exciting red run which takes you away from the traffic towards Grau Roig and lets you really enjoy the scenery. Give it a try!

The outlook for the next few days is more fresh snow (starting tonight) so it’s the perfect time to join us, we're hoping for a little sunshine to accompany the new snow this week, that would set us up for great conditions in this busy half term week. We now have a massive 203km of skiable terrain open in Grandvalira!

A very snowy day today in Pas and Grau, leaving a fresh carpet of powder on the slopes and resulting in almost perfect snow conditions, however a strong wind at the top of Pas and low cloud did make visibility poor, therefore skiing was difficult at times even on the perfect snow.  Later on in the day the clouds parted leaving pockets of blue sky and sun to enjoy.

The heavy snow that lasted from this morning through to early afternoon means that the slopes are now topped up with a fresh layer of powder snow making it the perfect time to hit the slopes.  Today we took the link from Grau to Soldeu with relative ease as the lifts were quiet with hardly any queues, we enjoyed this quieter spell before the half term crowds arrive next week.

Grandvalira currently has 195km of skiable terrain available and announced today that they hope to have 100% of the area (210km) open this weekend.

The outlook for next week is for plenty of snowfall accompanied by very cold temperatures (it could get as low as -20 with the wind chill) so be prepared.

After a complete mix of weather conditions yesterday we ended the day with heavy snow which continued throught he night leaving us with 25cm of fresh powder on the slopes.  This has allowed more slopes to open so today you have 194km of pistes to enjoy!

The temperature has stayed low, a few below zero, and there are still snow clouds filling the sky so we're hopeful of more snow later.  The forecast shows we should get more over the next few days, so we'll all be keeping our fingers crossed.

It's shaping up to be a good week on the slopes. After receiving around 15cm of fresh snowfall yesterday and a further dusting overnight (as well as some additional top-ups from the snow cannons) the snow is in great shape, we enjoyed fresh powder conditions yesterday, more likely to find packed powder on the pistes today and some nice easy skiing.

We woke up today to sunny but cold weather conditions, and after a blustery start yesterday the wind has died down, it's looking like today will be a great day to enjoy the slopes.  All links across Grandvalira are open this morning, with further slopes opening up in Pas / Grau and 189km of skiable terrain is available.

The week ahead looks very promising, local forecasts are showing snowfall almost every day, setting us up very nicely for the busy half term holidays next week.

The sun is out over Pas today but it's feeling chilly, and the temperature is set to continue to drop over the weekend and into next week, with snow on the forecast for tonight as well as throughout the week.  The local weather forecast is predicting 10-15cm of snow tonight, which is great news for those of you coming out soon.

Currently the slopes are pretty hard packed, although the snow earlier in the week helped, but things should improve over the coming days with low temperatures for the snow cannons to work coupled with the natural snow we're expecting.

A warmer day today in Pas and Grau Roig, providing a nice change from the colder snaps in recent days. Today was a day for getting up the mountain early and enjoying the freshly groomed morning conditions, followed by an afternoon soaking up some rays, in fact the bars, restaurants and terraces up on the slopes were doing a roaring trade today as we witnessed many skiers and snowboarders stopping for a much needed break and soaking up the sunshine.

The technical team at Grandvalira have done a fantastic job, working tirelessly to ensure conditions remain good with the snow still in great shape. We have 189km of skiable terrain open today, covering it all will be thirsty work, we would recommend light layers that you can take on and off as you move in and out of the shade / direct sunlight.

The forecast for the next few days is showing a dip in temperatures again from Wednesday onwards, with a possibility of more snow on the way later this week.

A cold day again in Pas, especially at the very top of the mountain, but yet again the sun was shining taking the edge off the average temps of around -1. There is still good snow coverage across the the slopes as a whole, with 195km of skiable terrain open to enjoy.

If you are heading from Pas/Grau Roig to Soldeu then we recommend you try a red run called Serrat Pinós, a nice long and open run which allows you to let go and really test your ski legs.

Pas de la Casa was a lot colder today with lows of -3 degrees celsius which you could really feel when you reached the top. At town level today Pas was blanketed in thick fog which made visibility very difficult, but higher up above the fog was a fantastic view of the mountain tips peaking through a white blanket.

Today we skied from Pas de la Casa to El Tarter which is something you must do once when you visit, the route is easy enough with plenty of blues and reds, plus some optional blacks to conquer if you wish. It's the perfect way to explore the 195km of skiable terrain now open in Grandvalira.

Brilliant weather today for skiing in Pas de la Casa and Grau Roig! The sun is shining and the sky is clear blue with highs of 6 degrees celsius. Today was a day of hard skiing (currently 201km of skiable terrain open in Grandvalira) and even harder relaxing. We took L'avi (blue) down to the bottom of the Llac del Cubil lift in Grau Roig which rather unconventionally has a moving carpet that pulls you along as the chairlift carefully sweeps you up.

We then took red run 'Cami de Pessons' to the Refugi de Pessons restaurant next to the frozen lake. It's a wonderful location and perfect for a day like today when the sun is shining and you can enjoy the terrace. The restuarant itself specialises in traditional mountain cuisine but there is also a small window where you can buy fast food such as pizzas and burgers along with soft drinks and beer. A great place to stop for a rest!

A wonderful day for skiing today, the sun is shining and the snow coverage is plentiful so we have the best of both worlds! Temperatures have picked up a bit from the freezing conditions last week and we are currently enjoying temps of around 5 degrees celsius, it can feel a bit warmer in the sunshine, sunscreen is recommended to fend off the goggle tan!

Today is a day for soaking up the sun, skiing for hours on end (we currently have 201km of skiable terrain open and in great condition) and maybe finishing up the day on one of Grandvalira's great terraces with a beer in hand, relaxing the tired legs!

What a glorious day on the mountain!  We woke to beautiful sunshine so it was a day for getting the suncream out, and started the day by heading to El Tarter to go dog sledding, which was a fantastic activitity and one we'd definitely recommend.  After the excitement of the sledding as well as meeting the gorgeous husky puppies we headed back to Pas-Grau for some skiing.

Heading up Cubil chair lift offered stunning views across the mountains before descending to Lake Pessons for lunch.  The snow conditions are absolutely perfect, great coverage and still lovely powder to be found from the snow at the beginning of the week.  After lunch we headed back to Pas de la Casa - the run back to town was surprisingly quiet given how great the snow is right now.

Grandvalira now have 192km open, so a huge number of slopes to enjoy, and we hear they're opening more this weekend.

The team have been out skiing today but the wind has been so strong we have kept to the lower slopes which are less exposed and protected by the trees. We have been on the Eslálom and Salvans runs down into Soldeu cutting in and out of the trees and enjoying the fluffy new snow. Not quite powder day, but if it keeps snowing overnight ther is going to be some awesome powder in the morning!

5pm - We've been up on the slopes but with all the snow it's very cloudy and not great visibility, and much colder than it has been recently. This afternoon we explored Soldeu and headed from the top of the gondola down Bosc Fosc to the town.  Not surprisingly after all the new snow the piste conditions were fantastic, but after second run down Ós it was time to warm up with a hot chocolate!

The best runs the team are enjoying at the moment are the ones that are tree lined and less exposed to the sunshine. It is possible to ski across all sectors as all but three lifts are open today.

Andorra Resorts and the Pas de la Casa team wish everyone a very Happy and Snowy New Year

It is a wonderful warm blue sky day today in Pas de la Casa. Every day more and more slopes are opening across Grandvalira and with the link from Grau-Roig to Soldeu now open it is possible to ski more than half of the Grandvalira pistes, with most in great condition for early December.  There are a couple of minor grassy patches to contend with but most runs are beautifully groomed still!

This weekend forecast's snow and freezing temperatures, so with a great base layer already its going to be an amazing December here. If you've not organised your trip yet then take a look at to our holidays page where you can plan and book everything you need for your Pas de la Casa ski holiday.

Today is opening day so we hit the slopes of Grandvalira.  The season has got off to a great start with excellent coverage for November, although the link between Pas-Grau and Soldeu-El Tarter isn't open yet so you have to choose between them.

With freezing temperatures throughout the week the snow cannons will be working hard to open more slopes as we get into December.  We'll be updating our snow report regularly throughout the season so keep checking back regularly for updates.

Pas is currently a lovely white winter wonderland!  We have received a good amount of natural snowfall over the last few days, today it has snowed heavily with around half a metre expected on the mountain.  The piste bashers are out in force working hard to get the pistes ready for opening day and we are really looking forward to getting our skis on and heading up the mountain soon!  There is more snow forecast over the coming week, as soon as the resort is open for skiing and snowboarding we will be up on the slopes bringing you all the latest snow reports.

Weather Forecast

You will find an up-to-date local weather forecast below to give you a general picture of what the Grandvalira weather may be like! Due to the location in the mountains, the weather can change quickly and often which makes it quite difficult to predict. From experience, we find that the closer to the actual time the forecasts get more reliable, especially when they are predicting the amount of snowfall.
