EXCELLENT SNOW CONDITIONS FOR AN EASTER TRIP! The superb Vallnord ski area comprises of three resorts; Arinsal, Pal and Ordino-Arcalis, all of which are covered under the same lift pass! Each of the three areas offers some of the friendliest English speaking ski instructors we have ever come across. The gentle nursery slopes are set high enough to enjoy excellent snow conditions throughout the season.
Skiing for every ability – perfect for school groups
With its mix of green and blue slopes, a beginner at Vallnord is well taken care of. Intermediate and advanced skiers are kept busy with a selection of more challenging runs. The Cota area at around 2100m offers a variety of red and blue runs and to really test your skills, ski back down to the middle station or take the Les Fonts chairlift for a long, wide downhill run. Pal also has a great selection of long wide reds for perfecting those carving turns! The more adventurous can try the steep, exciting runs off the Pic Negre and Pic alt de la Capa for mogul fields.
