Ski Vallnord

Vallnord

If you want to ski Vallnord in Andorra, you are located on the opposite side of Andorra to the Grandvalira ski area. If you're looking for excellent value skiing, sunny and attractive villages, and what the brochures call 'confidence building' skiing, then Vallnord is the place to visit.

When you ski Vallnord you have the villages of Pal, Arinsal, La Massana, whose slopes are linked by a lift system, that make up one of the main resorts in the region. Here there are 63 km of pistes catering mainly for beginner and intermediate skiers. Ski schools are located in Arinsal and La Massana, with excellent English speaking instructors, which have helped make it a popular resort for families. Snowboarders haven't been forgotten either with 4 snow parks, including a 'freestyle' arena.

Visiting Vallnord

On the other side of a mountain, are the villages of Arcalis and Ordino, also part of the Vallnord. Although lift passes cover the slopes in this area, access to them is via ski bus. There are 24km of downhill pistes and 14km of cross country trails here, extending the choice for intermediate and expert skiers.

Many of the hotels and guest accommodation in Vallnord is British owned, and located close to the resort centre or ski bus stops. Ski buses can also be booked to transport you from Barcelona or Toulouse airports to the resorts, which will take between 3 and 4 hours. If all this and more sounds like your perfect ski holiday, then it's time to book a ski holiday to the Pyrenees right now.

Often overlooked for the more 'hip' and 'trendy' Alps, the Pyrenees offer some great challenges to all levels of skier and boarder - so this winter why not find out more and choose to come here.
