Arinsal - Andorra - Ski Resort Guide

Andorran Ski Resort Guide for Arinsal

About the Resort

This resort is the most British dominated in Andorra. The main reason for that is the competitively priced package holidays offered by the tour operators.The villiage centre is where you will find the gondola that takes you to the slopes. There is a chair lift located out of town where there is some accommodation. A gondola link from Arinsal to the slopes in Pal will be an option but that has yet to open. The village is not very pretty and does not have a focal point. However, the slopes in Pal are very attractive and the cable car link with Pal is very good for beginners.

About the Mountains near Arinsal

There is a small area above Arinsal's gondola which is a narrow and east facing bowl of open slopes. In contrast, Pal's slopes are the most densely wooded of the Andorran resorts. The slopes in Arinsal consist of a single long and narrow and sadly, bleak bowl above the upper gondola station at Comallempla. The runs lead straight back towards that point served by a network of chairs and drags.The cable car link to and from Pal is almost at the top. Pal's slopes in contrast are widely spread around the mountain.
