EXCELLENT SNOW CONDITIONS FOR AN EASTER TRIP! The superb Vallnord ski area comprises the twin resorts of Arinsal and Pal, both of which are covered under the same lift pass! Vallnord offers some of the friendliest English speaking ski instructors we have ever come across. The excellent gentle nursery slope in Arinsal is at high altitude and is served by purpose-built covered travelators – perfect for learning!
Skiing for every ability – perfect for school groups
A beginner at Vallnord is well taken care of on a mix of green and blue slopes. While 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. If you really want to test your skills, you can ski back down to the middle station, or take the Les Fonts chairlift for a long, wide downhill piste. Pal also has a great selection of long wide red runs, great for perfecting those carving turns! For mogul fields, the more adventurous skiers should try the steep, exciting runs off the Pic Negre and Pic alt de la Capa.
