IMPORTANT: Covid protocols require that anyone planning on skiing in Sierra Nevada this season MUST have pre-booked their passes in advance. Lift pass sales are reduced by the lift pass company in line with the number and area of pistes programmed to open from one day to another. Once the maximum number of passes have been reached it will not be possible to acquire any more. Currently mid week sales are limited to roughly around 6000 passes per day.
For Spring 2021, the lift pass company has adopted a new “dynamic” approach with its pricing and calendar periods, meaning that prices keep changing! For this reason we are unable to display the rates. Please email us your requirements including the ages of any children, and we will send you the current rate as listed by the lift pass company. Once booked, we will send you confirmation which you can use as proof of your booking to show to the police in the event that you are stopped on your way to Sierra Nevada.
Lift passes are required for all skiers or boarders and there is one type of pass that covers all lifts over the ski terrain, whilst also providing options for non-skiers to use the gondola up to Borreguiles or the Parador chairlift running up through the ski village. Ready to book your lift passes?
We can book your passes of 2 or more days in advance and save you from annoying queues that can build up especially during peak season periods. We collect the passes and issue them to you from 9am at our office base (Intersport Rio Sport) away from the hectic lift pass office area and barely 30m away from the Al-Andalus gondola. All you need is to have your booking confirmation document ready to show us in exchange for your lift passes and away you go…it couldn’t be simpler!
During periods when only a limited number of pistes are open due to lack of snow, the lift pass company limits the number of lift passes sold to avoid overcrowding on the slopes. By having your lift pass pre-booked you are guaranteed to be able to ski.
Lift pass prices depend on your age, the number of days you’re booking and the dates.
Children up to the age of 5 inclusive and adults 70 and older receive a “free”* lift pass! Please note though, that with these “free” lift passes, an obligatory insurance fee of 5.00 euros per day is charged.
Notes On Lift Pass Rates:
For lift passes of 2 days where each day falls into a different season period, the total charged is the sum of the 1 day rate for each season period.
2 day weekend passes on a Saturday and Sunday can only be prebooked with an additional fee of 5€ per pass.
An obligatory 5€ per day insurance charge is applied to “free” lift passes. ID may be requested at the lifts to verify ages.
Lift passes include insurance cover to national and foreign visitors alike including eventualities such as extended hotel stays, medical costs, repatriation and public liability.
For lift passes of 3 or more days comprising a varied number of days in 2 or more different season periods, the total days will be charged according to the season period that occurs most: E.g. for a lift pass running 3 days in mid season and 1 day in high season, the total 4 days will be calculated at the mid season rate.
For lift passes of 4 or more days comprising the same number of days in 2 different season periods, the overall rate charged for the total number of days will be that according to the lower season rate: E.g. for a lift pass running 2 days at mid season and 2 days at high season, the total 4 days will be charged at the mid season rate.
