Experience the freedom of off-piste skiing.

Have you ever enjoyed freeride skiing in Andorra? Do you want to know how to get started or where to find the best areas? Read on: we’ll tell you the secrets of off-piste skiing and snowboarding.

Freeriding in Andorra

The first thing you need to know about freeriding is that it is done away from the traditional slopes, on powder snow. Off-piste skiing is more than a form of skiing: it is about experiencing the mountain in its purest and wildest state, in a way that few other sports can offer.
By skiing or snowboarding off-piste, you are facing nature in its truest form, challenging yourself to overcome challenges that come your way. However, it is not a sport to be taken lightly. It involves risks and demands a high level of skill and preparation. It’s not for everyone, but if you have a good level of skiing and proper preparation, freeriding can offer you unparalleled experiences.

Where can you freeride in Andorra?

In Andorra you’ll find unique areas for off-piste skiing and snowboarding, both on the sides of the slopes and on the tracks around Grandvalira, Ordino Arcalís and Pal Arinsal. The best of all is that you can either begin or enjoy skiing at a high level. Each area is classified according to its degree of difficulty, making it easy to identify when selecting it.

– Off-piste skiing in Grandvalira

It has a total of 14 areas, spread over 7 sectors, with different circuits from medium to expert level.

– Freeride in Ordino Arcalís

Due to its northern location and orography, this is the off-piste ski resort par excellence. In fact, it has hosted a Freeride World Tour event every year since 2015, a world-renowned event.

– Circuits in Pal Arinsal

It also offers areas identified by difficulty.

Freeride skiing and snowboarding lessons

To practice freeride, it is essential to have the right knowledge and equipment to face the challenges of off-piste skiing.
If you want to start freeriding in Andorra, it is important to start with the right preparation. Grandvalira provides freeride lessons in groups or individually with expert instructors, who will teach you the technique on the boards, as well as safety measures and how to use the specific safety equipment (DVA, shovel and probe). These are essential steps to enjoy freeride in a safe and responsible way.
