Lift passes are required for all skiers or boarders whether you are a novice or an expert. Sierra Nevada has one type of pass that covers all lifts over the ski terrain, whilst also providing options for non-skiers to use the gondola up to Borreguiles or the Parador chairlift running up through the ski village.
Sierra Essence offers the facility to pre-book your passes in advance and save you from annoying queues that can build up especially during peak season periods.
Allow us to do the work for you. At no additional cost to the official public rates, we collect the passes and issue them to you from 9.00am at our office base (Intersport Rio Sport) away from the hectic lift pass office area and barely 30m away from the Al-Andalus gondola.
During any periods when only a limited number of pistes are open as a result of lack of snow, the lift pass company applies limits to the number of lift passes sold and hence limits the number of skiers permitted on the slopes to avoid overcrowding for safety purposes. By having your lift pass pre-booked you are guaranteed to be able to ski. All you need is to have your booking confirmation document ready to show us in exchange for your lift passes and away you go...it couldn't be simpler!
Please note that children up to the age of 5yrs inclusive and adults of 70yrs and older receive a free lift pass!
