Pas de la Casa (Andorra) Reviews
Newest Review: ... area for a ski resort with one main starting area for the skiing meaning that queues in the morning often got quite large so you were best off going either quite early or missing the first half hour/ hour and coming home later. The resort is also not short on snow, i think we had about two feet just while we were there although this did ruin a day for us. The locals are friendly and helpful which you definitely don't find at Italian resorts and also being in a tax free zone you can get cigarettes and alcohol very cheaply. I saw 200 unboxed (just loose in a big case) cigarettes for just 2 euros. You could also get your proper brands like B&... more

I had been to Andorra once before but when i was about 12 but now that I was 18 it was a whole different experience and it really is a great resort with an excellent nightlife. Andorra itself is a country but the pas de la casa allows you to access the whole of the area Andorra allows you to ski. The resort links about 4 different areas together but the actual area we stayed in was pas de la casa, it was a medium sized area for a ski resort with one main starting area for the skiing meaning that queues in the morning often got quite large so you were best off going either quite early or missing the first half hour/ hour and coming home later. The resort is ... Read the complete review

For those people who are totally clueless, Andorra is situated inbetween France and Spain and all the skiing is located on the Pyrenees mountains. I visited Pas over the Christmas/new year period, and this review is solely based on that! I flew into Barcelona with my friends, our plane was 3 hours late, but that fault belong's to Easyjet. We had a private transfer booked and he was stood there waiting to take us to resort. The transfer there took 4 hours, this was part motorway driving and part mountain driving - queue travel sickness. Once we were there we got dropped off in the town centre, which is a big roundabout! We then had to locate out ... Read the complete review

Spent week of 17th to 24th Jan 2010 in Pas and to be honest it failed to live up to expectation, there was too much ice on some red run ridges for boarders and one day on slopes was ruined by freezing fog and snowfall simultaneously!! a first in 15 years of boarding, also any idea that Andorra is cheap can be forgotten as we were paying 2.5 euros just for a cup of tea, in a cafe called pas 83 which is rediculous! A 5 day pass was around £145 which is also expensive. Considering that Andorra is a duty free resort this is dire! Clothes shops were also no cheaper than UK i could not find a decent pair of jeans for less than 54 euros, Better to go to Livigno as better snow, better food and save some dosh!

Not ideal for families, long transfer (over 3 hours), resort one of those that's built up the side of the mountains rather than one in the valley that's all level, so lots of uphill walking to do, which is exhausting when you first arrive as you're not used to the altitude - it kills the lungs & legs, though by the end of the week it's not really a problem!! If you're a first time skier be careful which accommodation you choose as it can be a long and uncomfortable walk to the beginner slopes & ski school meeting points if you've never skied before, not too bad if you can ski as you can get on to the slope fairly easily and ski over to the meeting point. If the .. Read the complete review

This was my first experience of skiing and I can safely say that I will be going again (but not back to Pas de la Casa). It has been described as the Ibiza on Snow and as a general indication of what you can expect this is not far wrong. The facilities are fine. Plentiful chair lifts, good runs up and over the main resort into neighbouring resorts and the snow is pretty reliable. I was lucky to have gorgeous weather there in March which certianly made the experience a delight. Lessons are widely available and all the instructors speak English. Mine (Ricard) was a true character and a joy to learn with. Others were more fierce and less understanding ... Read the complete review
