The Grandvalira area is raising the price of a day lift ticket by 20%. Some airport to resort transfers have gone up by 25% and hotels are reportedly raising their prices as demand increases. NEW
The price at the ticket window of a 1-day lift pass will increase to €65 (£xx).
The changes applied from Friday 27/01/23 for the whole period between 11/02/23 and 25/02/23.
Multiday pass prices will also be ‘modified’ between both dates.
“Please consult prices at the Sales guide website,” says a statement from Grandvalira resorts.

“One guest asked me just yesterday how can the ski pass in Andorra be more expensive than the Arlberg ski Pass they bought in St Anton?” Duncan added.
Prices in many ski resorts have gone up this winter, and it is one of the most grumbles we hear from skiers and snowboarders.
It is not uncommon for a large beer in some of the French alpine resorts to be €10.

Though a beer in a bar in Bosel on the way up to Courchevel and Meribel cost €6.
