Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)
Remember me:

grandvalira ski pass

Firstly I'm not sure if this is the right forum but here goes
Anyone thinking of going for ski school option at level 2, i.e. can snowplough turn etc may need to upgrade their passes.
this may sound strange but we discovered this last week.
the ski school breaks each group into subgroups usually of 4
the top 2 subgroups at Level 2 ski school were told that they needed the full pass, for a day on new slopes in Pas de la Casa . unfortunately this was after the basic ski pass had been bought and therefore not able to be upgraded. Sad

this resulted in 2 of our group having to get one day passes.

this is something that the tour opperators are not warning people about.
If you are going for level 3 or 4 you will need an upgraded pass

has anyone else come across this ?

I think the upgrade of the ski pass is only for going to a wider domain and got nothing to do with the skiing levels. For obvious reason a beginner may not be able to ski all the runs and may have bought a ski pass covering only a limited area of the resort.

Snowplough turn will not be controllable for beginners in red slopes (too fast and panic) and so it is a waste of money for them to buy a ski pass for a full domain.

The speed with which a younger person learns how to ski can vary considerably. Many teenagers can tackle red slopes in their first trip and the tour operator will not have a clue how the ski pass should be arranged. It is really dependent on the individual's ability to progress.

I wouldn't lose sleep on upgrading a ski pass. The bigger the domain the better chance for one to locate a run just perfect for progressing to the next level and to make rapid progress.

rob and sharon, I was in Pas in January and our tour operator (Airtours/Panorama) told everybody on the coach on the way to resort that 1st time only skiers should buy a local lift pass - everyone else needed Grandvalira passes. They even allowed those who had pre-booked passes in the UK to change if they needed to free of charge. Guess it depends on the rep / company if the correct information is relayed.

Anyway - what did you think of the Sport Village ?

Paul - the Sport is fantastic. snowHead snowHead
food excellent especially for our group as we had one Veggy, one allergy to Dairy and one Celiac (think that's how you spell it) and were still poilt for choice.
We are already trying to find details of booking for next year at the sport, though i expect prices to go up due to the developments.

Saikee - As for the passes I think the biggest problem was we were told only level 3-4 needed the extended passes, and it wasn't made clear on the coach transfer
