Pas de la Casa

Trip Planner Europe  /  Andorra  /  Encamp Parish  /  Pas de la Casa
El Pas de la Casa is a ski resort (part of the Grandvalira resort), town, and mountain pass in the Encamp parish of Andorra, lying on the border with France.OverviewIts name literally translates as "the pass of the house" and refers to the fact that until the early twentieth century there was only a single shepherd's hut overlooking the pass. The pass marks the watershed of the Pyrenees, being the only point in Andorra where water drains into the Atlantic Ocean, and is the source of the Ari├Ęge river. At an elevation of 2408m it is one of the highest points on the European road network. The pass is bypassed by the Envalira Tunnel.The two main sources of wealth are trade, which generates a border tourism, especially people from France through its warehouses without taxes and winter sports, with the ski slopes of Grandvalira.Every 29 June is held in El Pas the festa major de Sant Pere (Saint Peter's Feast).Ski resortThe ski resort of Pas de la Casa sits below the pass on the side closest to France, and below the Pic d'Envalira . Its first ski lift was opened in 1957 and it now has 31 lifts, 100km of pistes and 6.26km2 of skiable terrain. The highest skiable point is 2640m. Its popularity has grown with the burgeoning ski and snowboard industry in the principality: it is the highest resort in Andorra, has the best snow record, and is the easiest to get to from Barcelona or Toulouse airports. Consequently, it attracts a large number of British and Irish winter sports enthusiasts, as well as French and Spanish ones. It is also favoured for its southern latitude and duty-free status, which for many overcome the drawbacks of the long airport transfer times.
