The lift pass company operates a “dynamic” approach to pricing, meaning that the rates are regularly changing. Typically speaking, prices increase the closer to your visit. So, the sooner you book your passes, the more economical they will be! So 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.
Lift passes are required for all skiers and boarders, with just one type of pass that covers all lifts throughout the ski terrain. Passes are also available for non-skiers, giving access to Borreguiles via the gondola as well as the use of the Parador chairlift which runs through the ski village.
Why Book With Us?
1. No more annoying queues. Queues are frequently a problem when buying passes directly from the lift pass company, especially during peak season periods. We collect your passes and have them waiting for you from 9am at our office base (Intersport Rio Sport), away from the hectic lift pass office and barely 30m from the Al-Andalus gondola. All you need is to have your booking confirmation ready to show us in exchange for your lift passes and away you go – it couldn’t be simpler!
2. Guarantee your place on the slopes. During times when only a limited number of pistes are open due to lack of snow, the lift pass company limits the number of passes sold to avoid overcrowding on the slopes. By having your lift pass pre-booked, you are guaranteed to be able to ski.
3. No booking fees. We charge exactly the same as the lift pass company. (The only exception is 2 day weekend passes, for which we charge a 5€ booking fee.)
4. No refund headaches. We deal with the lift pass company on your behalf in the event that you cancel or miss a day’s skiing due to bad weather or injury.
5. Discount on equipment hire. Once you have booked with us, you are entitled to a discount with our partner Intersport Rio Sport – one of Sierra Nevada’s principle and highly regarded equipment hire shops.
6. Infants aged 5 and under and adults of 70+ receive a “free” lift pass. The lift pass company applies an obligatory daily “transport insurance” fee to these “free” passes, which is currently 8€ per day.
