Arinsal, located towards Andorra’s western border with Spain, is part of Andorra’s Vallnord ski region which includes the Pal and Arinsal ski areas, with runs totalling almost 60 miles. There are two separate and very distinct villages - Arinsal is more lively with lots of night life, and La Massana which has more shops and restaurants. The resorts are 6 kilometres apart and connected by bus that runs until 9pm. Both Arinsal and La Massana are family-orientated and offer you access to some of the best-value skiing anywhere in Europe.
Skiing and snowboarding in Arinsal
Between both villages there are plenty of well-prepared confidence building runs making it an ideal destination if you and your group are made up of beginners and intermediates. The radical ‘Freestyle Area’ also caters well for snowboarders. The season runs from December till mid-April and snow here is good until the end of season thanks to most of the slopes being covered by snow canons.
