Welcome to El Pas de la Casa

The ski resort of Pas de la Casa sits below the pass on the side closest to France, and below the Pic d'Envalira (2,827 metres (9,275 ft)). Its first ski lift was opened in 1957 and it now has 31 lifts, 100 kilometres (62 mi) of pistes and 6.26 square kilometres (2 sq mi) of skiable terrain. The highest skiable point is 2,640 metres (8,661 ft). Its popularity has grown with the burgeoning ski and snowboard industry in the principality: it is the highest resort in Andorra,[citation needed] has the best snow record,[1] and is the easiest to get to from Barcelona or Toulouse airports. Consequently it attracts a large number of British and Irish winter sports enthusiasts,[2] as well as French and Spanish. It is also favoured for its southern latitude and duty-free status, which for many overcome the drawbacks of the long airport transfer times.[citation needed]

The nightlife is particularly youth‑oriented, and a prevalence of red pistes perhaps makes the skiing more suited to intermediates than beginners or the most advanced.

A recent lift link to Soldeu via Grau Roig has created a linked skiing area ranging over almost 10% of Andorra's land area, though not all is skiable.

Every 29 June is held in El Pas the festa major de Sant Pere (Saint Peter's Feast).

Getting there A bus from Toulouse Airport, Toulouse Train Station and Barcelona Airport runs twice per day and can be booked online.[3] Skis and snowboards can be transported on the bus. Toulouse Airport Transfers are also available.
