Ski passes are nifty little identifiers that greenlight your access to lifts and slopes at various ski resorts around the globe. Which ski pass you should buy depends on how frequently you travel for this purpose and what your go-to destinations are.

To ski the spectacular snowscapes of Andorra, you have the option of buying globally recognised tickets or resort-specific ones that align with your travel plans.

Ikon Pass

Ikon ski pass

Just like the Epic Pass, Mountain Collective Pass, and Indy Pass, the Ikon Pass is a worldwide multi-resort season ticket with unlimited access to various ski resorts around the world.

With it, you can ski over 50 other ski destinations around the world including the most iconic mountains in the United States, Canada, Asia, Oceania, and Europe, and Andorra — one of their recent additions.

In Andorra, the Ikon Pass will grant you access to Grandvalira Resorts for 7 days while the Ikon Base Pass and the Ikon Base Pass Plus will give you access for 5 days.

Multi-Resort Ski Passes

Multi-resort passes are handy for anyone who lives around Andorra and skis the terrain here regularly. These are specific to Grandvalira, Ordino Arcalís, Pal Arinsal (formerly Vallnord), and La Rabassa.

People use these passes for easy, season-wide access to their home resorts. They can be purchased as consecutive or non-consecutive tickets, depending on your requirements.

Andorra Ski Pass

Ski lift in action

As the name suggests, Andorra Pass gives you access to every alpine ski resort in the country, including Ordino Arcalís, Grandvalira, and Pal Arinsal.

The season pass will open up access to 303 kilometres of pristine skiable area with 215 slopes and 123 mechanical lifts, every day of the season with no limitations.

Nord Pass

Nord Pass is ideal if you only plan to visit the northern valleys of Andorra since it provides access to the slopes of Ordino Arcalís and Pal Arinsal.

It’s available as a season ticket or a multi-day pass which combines skiing in both resorts for 2 days or more. Access a total of 93.5 km of skiable slopes and 45 mechanical ski lights. As with the Andorra Pass, this one provides access to summer lifts and the highly sought-after Pal Arinsal Bike Park.

Mountain Pass


If you prefer Nordic skiing over alpine skiing, then the Mountain Pass is the perfect option for you. You’ll be able to practice ski mountaineering or snowshoeing at every resort in Andorra, including Naturland. It also provides limited access to ski lifts with one cable car return trip per day and per lift including:

  • Tristiana gondola at Ordino Arcalís.
  • La Massana gondola, Els Orriols gondola in Arinsal, Arinsal-Pal cable car, La Tossa ski lift and the Pla de la Cot conveyor belt at Pal Arinsal.
  • Canillo gondola, El Tarter gondola, Soldeu gondola, Els Pioners gondola (Pas de la Casa), Funicamp, Montmalús surface lift and the Xavi chairlift at Grandvalira.

Region-Specific Passes

If you have a specific resort in mind or if you’re visiting Andorra for a very limited time, then it makes sense to purchase individual resort passes as opposed to multi-resort tickets.

These passes come in a variety of flavours, with each offering access to specific activities at individual resorts across the Pyrenean nation.


Grandvalira ski meet

Day Pass: Single-day tickets that allow access to Grandvalira, Ordino Arcalís, and Pal Arinsal resorts. Includes options for different age groups.

Ski Pass Plus+: Only pay for the days you ski. Opens access to Grandvalira, Ordino Arcalís, and Pal Arinsal. With this Ski Pass Plus+, you don’t need to visit the ticket office. You’ll be charged on whatever payment method you’ve added to your Ski Pass Plus+ account.
