Andorra is fast building a reputation as the place to be for skiing weekends and cheap ski flights to Barcelona are the perfect way to discover Arinsal. The resort is an attractive, compact area that offers some excellent skiing and snowboarding opportunities and it is only 3 hours and 15 minutes from the airport.

The Arinsal ski area is linked by high speed cable car to the beautiful tree-lined runs of neighbouring Pal, offering something for every grade of skier and is particularly suitable for beginners and intermediates on a short ski break.

Fantastic Après Ski and Skiing Routes

The resort, which is located in the Massana area, boasts a lively atmosphere with a great selection of après ski activities including restaurants, bars and clubs all operating well into the small hours. These bars, restaurants and clubs offer generous measures at low cost, duty free prices perfect for young people who are on a skiing break looking for a good time in the evenings!

Arinsal lies at the end of a valley in the southern part of Andorra. Snow reliability is amongst some of the best in Andorra as many of the slopes are above 1900m and supplemented by nearly 400 snow cannons.

On a skiing weekend visitors will find that Arinsal's east-facing mellow slopes get plenty of mid-morning sun. The mid-station, reachable from the gondola, is the main hub of the mountain and all trails lead back to the mid-station so you'll find it impossible to get lost! For those learning to ski this is a good spot as the learning trails are out of the way and have good snowmaking.

Arinsal and Pal are connected by cable car. Experts will head to the trees in Pal whereas intermediates should head to the trails dropping from the summit to La Caubella, El Fontanal and the cable car station.

Snowboarding in Arinsal

For snowboarding, freeriders should head to the north face of the Alt de la Capa or the north facing area beside the Cornellada run in Pal. Freestyle snowboarders can make the most of the now doubled in size terrain park at Arinsal which has three distinct zones: a 100 metre long half pipe, an activity park area and a permanent circuit for snowboarders and cross skiers.
