Lots of easy runs and great if you are on a first time ski trip, for the more advanced there are lots on near by runs accessed either via short car trip of via the cable car at the top of the resort. Mostly Green/blue with some reds. Good places to stop off and have bit to eat.

We were here the last week in March just before the end of the season. Although it was slushy in the afternoon they kept as many runs as possible groomed and their Ski School is second to none.

A fabulous area to learn to ski. Lovely wide slopes and even a mini ski park near the top to learn jumps. A few great bars and restaurants. Worth a trip to the top as the views are magnificent!

Well maintained, perhaps a little limited for experienced skiers. We liked the Arcalis area ( use the free bus service leaves 8.30, 9.30, & 10.30. Takes about 25 mins)

Gondola from village is efficient. But imagine it could get long queues in peak season . From there you have a few nice runs but need to go across by cable car to Pal sector to keep busy all day. Some nice restaurants reasonably priced for ski area. Intermediates can really enjoy the red runs. 2015 season one day lift... More

Stayed in Arinsal so mostly used that section. First time I had ever been skiing after only a couple of hours in a snowdome in the UK. The blue runs were great for building up confidence and by the end of the first day I was tackling the reds. Great variety of runs and great views right at the top.... More

Decided to travel to Andorra for my boyfriends 21st birthday and his first ever skiing holiday, the slopes at Arinsal were really good for my boyfriend as a beginner skiier and as an intermediate myself the slopes were still challenging nearer the top of the mountain. Due to the layout of this resort you are able to start at the... More

Booked this a week before actually going. Though fourth time I have been in Arinsal. The slopes are friendly for skiers of all types. The ski school is first class managing to pick the right people for the right groups after only s few moments. The access to Pal and Arcalis makes the amount of skiing enormous. Well worth a...

Great ski week in Arinsal. Snow conditions were excellent. Ideal slopes for two beginners with plenty of variety.
