Pas de la Casa is a resort and a ski resort in Andorra, in the parish of Encamp, lying nearly on the Andorra-France border.

His first ski lift was opened in 1957 and currently has 31 lifts, 100 km and 6.26 km of tracks of land suitable for skiing. The highest point is situated at an altitude of 2 640m. His popularity grew with the practice of snowboarding. It is the highest station in Andorra, where there is the best snow record. Integrates with the station in Grau Roig. The two stations are part of the system to track Granvalira, where you can use the lifts with one lift pass. Pas de la Casa has road connection with the rest of Andorra in two ways: by a mountain road that climbs to the peak named Port d'Envalira and then descends to Canillo, Encamp and Andorra-la-Vella or via a modern tunnel league Pas de la Casa Grau Roig station. The drawback of this is the toll tunnel (toll), which was about 6 euros in January 2009. Pas de la Casa has the vision of a microcountry scale: a road sign has written: France 100m. In addition to skiing Pas de la Casa is a shopping center. A curiosity is the language. Officially, as in the whole of Andorra is Catalan. But while the rest of the language of Andorra that more is heard in the streets is the Catalan and Spanish, in Pas de la Casa language on the streets is predominantly French.
