El Tarter is a small village in the north of Andorra, in the parish of Canillo, where the Incles and Ransol valleys meet. El Tarter is only 20 km away from Pas de la Casa. The resort is friendly, welcoming and very young with a full programme of entertainments. With 210 km of pistes, it forms part of the largest ski terrain in the Pyrenees: the Grandvalira which was created when six resorts merged in 2003. This means that there is ample ski terrain across the six sectors together with all the services you need.
Since the area is so spread out with a huge variety of pistes, there is something for everyone from beginners to experts. Given the altitude (between 1,700 m and 2,600 m) there is great snow coverage here which is supplemented by snow cannons which cover 65% of the resort. Every sport you can imagine is available here, from various difficulty levels of downhill skiing to freestyle skiing in the three very well equipped snowparks. El Tarter also has designated areas for freeride skiing and another option is the Pic Blanc descent in Grau Roig.
For families with children, surprises aplenty await at the Bababoom Circus ski area and there are also three Imaginarium pistes just for the kids. For those with energy left over, other activities include snowshoeing and dog sledding through the forests. There are also opportunities to unwind in the spa and leisure centre as well as an unforgettable night’s sleep at 2,350 m in one of the igloos at the Grandvalira Igloo-Hotel. In common with the rest of this ski area, the après-ski scene in El Tarter is also buzzing with plenty of café and bar terraces serving up mulled wine, beer and drinks plus musical entertainment or the chance to perfect your tan. You can also put the finishing touches to your outfit in one of the ski hire shops. This all adds up to an excellent quality ski terrain and a great quality of life.
