Grandvalira is the largest ski area in Southern Europe.
Located in the tiny country of Andorra, Grandvalira is considered the home of tax free booze and shopping, but more (much more) importantly it’s home to some 210km of blacks, reds and blues, spread across some 6 different sectors. It’s big! Click here to see the piste map if you don’t believe me.
Oh and in addition to the above, lets not forget to mention the 3 different snow parks, a host of restaurants and bars, a plethora of hotels and lodges, and of course incredible apres.
The views from the edge of the world aren’t too bad either …
This past January (2016), two friends and I were lucky enough to venture to the slopes of Grandvalira, staying in Pas De Le Casa and being hosted by Crystal Ski. We stayed at the Hotel Catalunya, and managed a grand 5.5 on the slopes out of 6. Dare I say, not a bad effort on our part.
If you want to know a tad bit more about the/my Crystal Ski experience, you can read all about it here –>Snowboarding in Pas De La Casa with Crystal Ski. The post also includes more written details on Pas De La Casa as a resort, and the slopes of Grandvalira, but let’s not get too sidetracked, you’re here for the video right?
Well, without further ado, I give you said video.
Hint: watch till the very send to see myself and @thecounterintuitive fall over lots haha.
