Arinsal | La Massana (Pal)
The Arinsal sector is linked to Pal by a cable car.
One of its runs – the Marrades – has over 1,000 metres difference in altitude from start to finish -the record for Andorra- and comes down directly into the centre of Arinsal.
A ski-lift and a gondola lift give direct access to the slopes from the village but visitors can also arrive at their hotel without having to remove their skis.
The Comallempla service area, situated at an altitude of 1,950 metres has everything skiers may need to make the best of a good day’s skiing. Arinsal is ideal for freeriders.
One of their favourite rendezvous is the Capa area, whose steep slopes host the Vertical Race World Cup and where the most proficient freeride specialists love to meet. Once the day’s skiing is over, Arinsal’s night life has plenty to offer.
After dinner in one of the village’s typical restaurants, you will be able to discover the unique atmosphere of its music bars and discos
La Massana is a village where visitors can enjoy nature to the full, with family or friends. In winter, Alpine skiing is the king of sports here, but others are also available: snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, snowbikes, horseriding. Towering over La Massana, is Mount Comapedrosa, at 2,942 metres the highest peak in the Principality of Andorra. The views from this great rock giant are absolutely spectacular, and Comapedrosa is also the site of the only guarded mountain refuge in the country.
The Gondola running from the town centre takes visitors up to the Pal ski area. There’s not much bite to the runs but Pal isn’t meant to be a haven for those craving adrenalin – the mountains exude calm and civilisation ideal for beginners, families or those who prefer the softer side of the slopes, and at such a leisurely pace is all the better for admiring the scenery.
The lift link straight to Pal-Arinsal gives you 63km of piste to tackle, perfect for beginners and intermediates. There are wide, gentle greens for novice skiers and and lots more advanced slopes over in Pal. And there’s a decent snow park over in Arinsal, if you’re keen on big air, half-pipes and jumps.
Arcalis (part of the Grandvalira Ski Area) is the gem of Andorra, (approx 40 mins from Arinsal) – a site favoured by nature, ideal for gliding among the trees and beautiful landscapes. Its steep slopes, spectacular valleys, altitude and the fact that it is north-facing, make it the most alpine sector of Andorra.
Featuring 30Km of piste, here great snow, fabulous and easily reached freeride areas, as well as the longest run for beginners in the Principality – the Megaverde ( 8 km long). In Arcalis, the Family Park offers three theme circuits for kids named Agustina, Max and Leo the teddy-bear, after which Vallnord figures are known to children.
There is also a speed ride school, a snowmobile circuit and excursions are proposed in a tracked vehicle or on snow-shoes.
