Arinsal in Andorra is an ideal resort for beginners and intermediates to progress their snowboarding skills. There is a cable car connecting Arinsal and Pal, giving access to a large and varied area. There are tree lined runs in Pal, while Arinsal has mainly wide, open slopes. 

 

Between the two areas there are 42 pisted runs, most of which are blues and reds. For freestyle snowboarders, there is a terrain park in Arinsal. For challenging runs and great off piste, there is the local secret of Arcalis - covered by the same lift pass and you can get there on the bus.

 

This is a family friendly resort which won't break the bank, that is unless you get carried away with the duty free shopping!!

 

Apres Ski

 

Arinsal is a small, friendly village which has a great apres ski atmosphere in the evenings. There is a good selection of restaurants, a few shops, and several lively bars and clubs. There are also many activities such as dog sledding, skidooing, tobogganing and a bowling alley.
