Welcome to Pas de la Casa

Pas de la Casa

In the last decade or so the tiny mountain principality of Andorra, atop the Pyrenees between France and Spain, has become a world favourite for winter sports enthusiasts, helped along by its good snow, sunny clear weather and duty-free status. Another plus is the fact that the tiny country's mountain resorts are just a short hop (109 miles or 175km) from Barcelona International Airport, and close to the French border.

Pick of the Andorra holiday resorts is Pas de la Casa, the highest of the bunch with the largest skiing area, well-served by a hi-tech lift system which has been linked to the nearby Soldeu resort, providing about 116 miles (186km) of pistes suited to all levels of skiers and snowboarders. Snow conditions here are excellent, well maintained with top-notch snowmaking, and the resort rarely closes before April. Pas de la Casa, or 'Pas' as it is fondly known by loyal regulars, can hardly be described as picturesque, consisting mainly of modern, unattractive box-like apartment blocks and hotels, but all the accommodation and facilities are conveniently situated for the slopes and provide all the trappings necessary for a rollicking winter holiday at affordable prices.
