One of the six main ski stations in the Grandvalira ski-resort - the others being Grau Roig, Funicamp (from Encamp), Soldeu, Pas de la Casa and El Tarter.
You take the 6 person cable car up from the village itself (not free parking in Canillo). It has a ski school, medical clinic, restaurant complex and large sun terrace with play park.
There are only a couple of pistes terminating here, and a couple of chair-lifts - but the aspect is perfect as it is south facing.
The ski station is only accessible by the cable car from Canillo town. You can ski from any of the other Grandvalira ski stations via the mountain.
Parking is available in Canillo town (for those without hotel, apartment or chalet parking), but it is fairly expensive.
If you are coming from further afield you may prefer to park in either El Tarter or Grau Roig car parks and take the telecabina up - these both have big car parks and are free.
There is a track suitable for 4x4 which would be passable in the summer; in the winter the snow is likely to make it not possible. All the grandvalira ski stations (up the mountains) are connected by pistes, so you can start in Canillo and ski halfway across the country all the way to the French border at Pas de la Casa.
This is a new feature since summer 2016. It was free as part of the MontMagic summer promotion, but my 10 year old son was unable to have a go as he was below the height limit.
The guys operating appeared to be local young lads, and appeared professional.
It appears that it will be operating in the winter, according to the Grandvalira site.
There are some limits reproduced here:

For more information please see the tournament site. http://open.escacsandorra.com
The Palarine Hotel/Bamboo Restaurant, is a welcoming place to stay and eat in Andorra. The hotel welcomes skiers, mostly from the UK & Ireland, and the restaurant/bar is hub of expat life.
Graham is the friendly manager/landord and together with his chinese wife Maria they expertly run the Palarine (and the bamboo restaurant).
The chinese food is excellent and unique in this part of the world - other chinese restaurants in the area (of which there are very few anyway) serve nothing like it. Well known and respected, locals come all the way from La Vella and La Massana to enjoy the food.
There is a "english pub" atmosphere to the place (without the cigarette smoke), as many of the local british expats tend to often congregate here. Big screen TVs play important sports games.
The many good reviews received for this Campsite are not wrong. Set halfway up a deep valley on the road to Pal village, it has a backdrop of beautiful pine covered mountainsides, and the constant sound of the nearby stream torrent that runs by the side of the camp.
It has 3 different accommodation zones: A large block with 16 apartments, 8 log cabins and a campsite field for 30 or more caravans, campers and tents.
Running up and down the valley is their 18 hole pitch & putt golf course. You need to have a licence to play.
The owners Mariebelle and her brother and their family are very friendly, she speaks Catalan, Spanish, French and passable English; and is more than willing to help out in any way and are greatly appreciated by visitors.
Visitors to the Park are mainly from Spain and France; but you often encounter other europeans like Brits, Dutch, Swedes and Germans. It is not on the "through road" from France to Spain; so will involve a bit (30mins) detour off the main road if you are passing: it is worth the trip up the North Valley.

The Mirador Roc del Quer is an extended platform out into the valley with a sculpture of a bronze man sitting on the end of a girder. Art and engineering combine to make a natural and man made spectacle.
You will have seen it high up above Canillo village if you staying there or skiing there.
Perfect for a morning or afternoon stroll for young and old: 5/10 mins walk from the car park - get a fantastic view of the Canillo valley, or alternatively double-check you still get vertigo.
Certainly open in the summer; check access in winter - the mayor of canillo pronounced that it would be open in winter too, at the opening ceremony - but best to check with these things; heavy snowfall will block the road and access path for sure.
Next to the urbanisation of El Tarter and at the base of the gondola is the free car parking areas. Big for Andorra is gets very busy.
There are 3 main areas; the primary one (1-on map) outside the cable car and new offices for Grandvalira, an older one (2-on map) over the river and towards the Llop Gris hotel and the Calbo rental store - this one has a chairlift going up as the most suitable.
And if you drive further up toward Soldeu just about 200metres there is another bridge with access to the nordic hotel, keep going up there are there are overflow car parks (3-on map) with pretty much direct access to the piste - you will have to ski back down just a little way to catch a ride back up, and make sure you come down the correct run, to avoid having to walk back up to where you've parked the car.
A word of warning - don't park too close to the new huge "mushroom" shaped cover for the goldola base unless you prepared for an avalanche of snow as the day warms up. At some point durning the day the snow will all come off in a one-er!
