SETAP365 is the new Andorran organisation that is the result of a merger between the historical and consolidated ski resorts of Soldeu El Tarter and Arinsal Pal. The number 365 demonstrates the commitment to keeping the winter and summer activities of the two stations open every day of the year.
The new company SETAP365 has been officially established this week thanks to the agreement of partners with a distribution of:
- 40.24% for the Canillo City Council,
- 19.96% for the City of La Massana
- 39.80% for Crèdit Andorrà
With the addition of Arinsal Pal to Grandvalira, a visitor will be able to ski with a single ski lift pass in the more than 303 skiable kilometres that Andorra has to offer. Currently, Grandvalira Resorts has the Canillo, Soldeu, El Tarter, Encamp, Grau Roig and Pas de la Casa sectors connected by ski pistes, in addition to being connected to the Ordino Arcalís ski resort.
The new company SETAP365 was officially established at the end of the year thanks to the partnership agreement between the councils of Canillo and La Massana and Crèdit Andorrà. The alliance is a strong commitment to a unified business model in the snow industry and to off-season activities. A joint venture with a clear national vision that will allow Soldeu El Tarter and Arinsal Pal to be more competitive in international markets.
The two resorts have strong track records in organizing events for the FIS Alpine Skiing World Cup, in the case of Soldeu El Tarter. One of the first missions of SETAP365 will be to incorporate the Arinsal Pal resort into the Grandvalira commercial brand, the largest ski area in the Pyrenees, top 13 in the 2021 world ranking for ski days.
In the coming weeks the Board of Directors will meet for the first time, when the organization chart of the company will be approved and work will begin on the lines of the integration plan.
David Hidalgo, current CEO of Grandvalira Soldeu El Tarter and CEO of the candidature for the 2027 Alpine World Ski Championships, will be the chief executive officer of the new SETAP365 partnership.
