Vallnord Pal-Arinsal covers 63 km of slopes, marked on the Vallnord piste map, and is the perfect place to come for beginners and families who want to learn to ski. Arinsal is ideally set up with a superb ski school internationally recognised for offering an outstanding level of tuition.
Since 2019, the Pal-Arinsal area has been separated from Arcalís, so now the old Vallnord lift pass no longer exists, however if you still want to ski in nearby Arcalís you should look out for our "Ski The North" lift pass product which includes a non-consecutive lift pass for each area.
Arinsal and Pal are linked by a 50 person cable car and offer a great variety of skiing and snowboarding for those at beginner and intermediate level, with some lovely runs through the trees located over in Pal. Ordino-Arcalís is a 30 minute bus journey away, there is a free ski bus that connects it with Arinsal and La Massana (Pal).
Offering a total of 63 kilometres of marked runs serviced by 30 lifts, Vallnord Pal-Arinsal has a nice variety of slopes with something for all abilities, however the focus is very much on families, beginners, and those developing their skills. There are two ski schools, both operated by Vallnord, who offer an excellent standard of ski and snowboard tuition, with a large number of British instructors in the Arinsal sector.
If it's your first time coming to the mountains you should visit our 'What to Wear' guide to get an idea of things to pack!
You can link between the two sectors of Arinsal and Pal by using the cable car, however be aware that the usual closing time of the cable car is 4.15pm. If you miss the last one you'll need to head back to the base area of either Arinsal or Pal (depending on where you are stuck) and take the ski bus back to Arinsal or La Massana.
