El Tarter’s Snowpark

Currently Grandvalira has 3 parks spread out at the station. This is one of the most innovative in Spain and Andorra. It houses different modules and areas for all levels, to offer the best conditions in both skiing and snowboarding. It has a length of 1.3 km so it can provide longer rounds. This will be the 15th edition of this competition.

The origins of Freestyle

Although it is a discipline that is less known and practiced in snow sports, Freestyle is one of the most spectacular and each year it is gaining new followers. It is characterized by looking for ways to enjoy the mountains and skiing or snowboarding with a free style. It was born in Norway in the 30s, during Alpine skiing training when skiers performed acrobatics to hang out. The first exhibitions took place in the United States in the 1950s. At the end of the 70s and the beginning of the 80s, the first snowboarding acrobatics appeared when surfers and skateboarders adapted their pirouettes to the snow.

In Grandvalira you can always enjoy the best sporting events and the best thing is that we are very close to all of them. So do not hesitate and book your ski getaway to see it all up close. Also if you want to emulate the great riders and learn how to do freestyle the station also offers courses, ask at our reception and we will advise you.
