The ski resort of Canillo is found in one of the best ski areas in Andorra. World renowned the ski area of Grandvalira encompasses six ski resorts all of which have their own unique characters and are suited to different types of winter holiday. Canillo is centrally placed within this network of resorts and is a great destination for families as well as mixed ability groups who need a good range of slopes. The ski area directly accessed from Canillo is El Forn. The cable car from the centre of the village takes you up 500m to the refreshingly quiet El Forn area, nervous beginners and families will enjoy the peaceful slopes immensely. But that doesn't mean expert riders will be left out in Canillo, there's a lift which connect the huge ski area of Soldeu with Canillo. This opens up over 150kilomètres of trails including a good number of reds and blacks. And for off-piste junkies there's a free snowcat which takes skiers and boarders up from the Soldeu/Canillo lift to the Pic d’Encampandana, from which they can freeride down to Pla Riba Escorxada above El Tarter.
