Lift Passes

Covid Guidlines: We’ll post any updates as soon as details are announced for the upcoming season 2021-22.
Covid measures for the winter 2020-21 made it obligatory for everyone visiting Sierra Nevada to have pre-booked their lift pass in advance. The number of passes available for each date varied according to the number of pistes scheduled to open on that day. Once the maximum number of passes was reached, no more were available. Mid week sales were usually limited to 5, 000–8, 000 passes per day.

During the 2020-21 ski season, the lift pass company adopted a new “dynamic” approach with its pricing and calendar periods, meaning that their rates kept changing! For this reason we were unable to display the rates on our website. 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.


*** Book your lift passes with us in advance! ***


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.

We book your passes of 2 or more days, and save you from the annoying queues which 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!

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.

Lift pass prices depend on your age, the number of days you’re booking and the dates.

Children up to and including 5 and adults of 70 and over receive a “free” lift pass! Please note that with these “free” passes, an obligatory insurance fee of 5 euros per day is charged. Ready to book your lift passes?
