About the Resort

The resort is sited right on the border between Andorra and France. It owes much of its development to the duty free sales to the French. It is not an attractive resort. It owes much of its looks to having been embraced by the concrete industry of the 1970s. Most of the accommodation is based conveniently by the lift base and slopes. The centre of the town has a good shopping area with a good selection of bars. It attracts a lot of French and Spanish families. The lift system spreads from Pas over 3 adjacent valleys. The valley furthest from Pas has onloy a lift station and nothing else. In the attractively wooded middle valley is Grau Roig which is a mini resort that acts as the access point for day visitors arriving by road, it makes a good base.
