Me and my partner came here for a weekend snowboarding. The runs were very good, nice blue slopes to start the weekend off. The only down fall was it was rather busy as some of the slopes were shut the higher up we went which was due to the weather. Overall very good.

Just had our second year trip to Arinsal. There were 5 of us, 2 skiing and 3 snowboarding. I snowboarded for the week and had lessons Monday to Friday with my 2 lads. Our instructor Bed was second to none. All of our riding improved and he kept instruction simple (which is what I need). Can't wait to return next... More

We enjoyed our week in Andorra. The powder is fantastic and so are the slopes. They are well prepared and safety seemed to be excellent. Therese are plenty of space in the pistes especially in the tougher runs since most skiers are beginners. Compared to ski areas in Austria and Sweden though this system lack basics. The lifts are generally... More

Went to Arinsal for one week end of January 2015 snowboarding. Absolutely loved it. Only boarded on Arinsal mountain twice, rest of the week we were at Pal and Arcalis which are far better than Arinsal. A free bus runs to take you to both of these and I really recommend it. Slopes were great and empty, lovely views and... More

Access and facilities nice and easy, only downside is probably a lack of toilets on the piste level so taking kids to the toilet is a minor irritation (probably not helped being new and trying to all walk round in boots!). Execllent pistes in good condition every morning, ski school was fantastic, had teachers for adults and children who were... More

It was a lovely resort, small but perfectly formed. lovely slopes in Arinsal it is also linked to Pal which has great family slopes too. The ski school was awesome and taught the children so well they were on red runs by day 4.

this place is good for first timers or those having lessons. Great wide open runs for beginners and enough to keep intermediates and happy for a short break. limited variety in my opinion though. also the Free Bus from Arinsal was like getting on to a Cattle Truck. No organisation, a complete Free For All.

There is a good choice of blue runs and easier red runs to build confidence for beginner/intermediate skiers, bef an ore progressing onto some trickier slopes. The slopes are also wide and well groomed, making for excellent conditions. Its recommended you also explore the whole of the Vallnord ski areas (5 in total) which make for some great variety of...

Arinsal and Pal were good for beginners and intermediate skiers. Good lifts, restaurants and ski shops.
