Alpine World Cup Finals in Andorra

This year Grandvalira will host their biggest event to date, the 2019 FIS World Cup Finals. Taking place for the first time in Andorra the event welcomes the top 25 skiers in each category and will be held on the Avet (Soldeu) and Àliga (El Tarter) slopes in the Grandvalira area between 11th – 17th March 2019. Many consider the World Cup Finals to be the most important competition on the pro ski tour after the Olympic Games and World Championships.

Andorra’s geographic location in the Pyrenees has drawn visitors from nearby Spain and France for many years, but due to its excellent conditions, modern infrastructure and welcoming citizens the principality has seen a surge in visitors looking for a memorable ski experience.

Grandvalira hosts the Alpine World Cup Finals from 11th to 17th March 2019.

The World Cup Finals attract thousands of ski enthusiasts, hoping to catch a glimpse of the likes of Lindsey Vonn and Mikaela Shiffrin. As a highlight in the alpine skiing calendar, this is not one to be missed. Since opening in 2003 Grandvalira have invested millions in the area, from improving facilities and non-skiing leisure activities. This year alone Grandvalira has invested over €10 million, this includes a 150,000 sq. foot ski platform in Soldeu at the foot of the Avet slope. The new platform in Soldeu will be beneficial for those visiting for the event, as it will provide 450 additional parking spaces and connects the Avet slope to the village.

"Andorra already has lots of experience with competitions. What I have felt in Andorra in recent years as a racer is the passion with which the people of this country do things. There is a huge human effort, and you go home feeling just how passionately the people experience it."Carolina Ruiz, former alpine ski racer
