Where?

WE LIKE

  • Linked to Pal with it's tree-lined slopes making the ski area much larger
  • If you need lessons, the ski schools have quite a few British instructors. Cheap skiing and even cheaper duty free.
  • Quite a young vibrant scene with some great lively bars

WE DON'T LIKE

  • The resort is a little confined and the local slopes are not the best in the Pyrenees
  • If you want to ski back to the village, you need good snow conditions
  • Long, linear and rather dour village with never ending contruction it seems

On the slopes

Perfect for intermediates, Arinsal with its 30 lifts serving 42 pistes, are an intermediates dream. More confident skiers will enjoy the skiing and snowboarding by exploring Pal's more interesting and varied runs. There are also some short, sharp slopes in this Andorran ski resort for the advanced skier and some great off piste skiing in both Arinsal and Pal. Arinsal is ideal for beginner snowboarders, and Pal offers some great powder runs and groomed pistes.

Ski area

If you ski Arinsal, you are also in the ski region of Vallnord.

Off the slopes

Arinsal is a quiet town in the Vallnord ski area, though it can get quite lively in the evening. The compact centre makes it easy to get around between the restaurants and bars. You'll find a number of traditional restaurants serving fresh seafood, and the bars are relaxed and friendly, with drinks very reasonably priced. Nearby Andorra La Vella is a tax free shopping haven, with the spa at Caldea well worth a visit.
