SNOWPARK AT VALLNORD-PAL ARINSAL
Location and contact
This snowpark is located in the Arinsal sector of the Vallnord-Pal Arinsal ski resort, and it is divided into 3 areas: one for beginners, another for intermediate level and the third for experts. The first of these, the beginners' area, has five boxes and three mini jumps. Specially designed for starting out in this sport, it is ideal for both children and adults taking your first steps in the world of freestyle!
The second area, with a slightly higher level of difficulty, is for those who are already initiated in the world of freestyle, with an intermediate level, and are looking for a more challenging adventure. You'll have to negotiate 14 obstacle modules, among which you'll find boxes, rails and jumps of various heights, two of them as high as six metres!
If you've already mastered the technique and are looking to perfect your style, the experts' area is for you! You'll have to negotiate a total of six jumps of between 10 and 18 metres, distributed over the three hills of the circuit, as well as a whole set of complicated jibs. You'll feel like a real professional!
Finally, we should add that the snowpark is fully equipped and well prepared for use. It has a ski lift and the centre has its own snow grooming machine, so you can enjoy quick rotation, without having to leave the snowpark at any time!
Snowboarding at Vallnord-Pal Arinsal
The Vallnord-Pal Arinsal resort has two alpine skiing and snowboarding schools, one in Pal and the other in Arinsal. More than 200 accredited and multilingual instructors teach classes according to the level and type of skier or snowboarder. From a debutant, making their very first tracks on snow, to an expert who wants to hone their technique or explore and enjoy all the runs and secret corners of the resort in depth. Lessons are available as private or group classes according to your particular needs and preferences.
Note that group classes are currently NOT available. You can however enjoy your own private classes and learn the very best skiing techniques. Tuition fees for private classes will be available shortly.
One of the greatest gifts that you can give to any child is to spend a few days on holiday in the snow. This is, without a doubt, one of the best ways to enjoy some quality time with the family. Playing with the snow, organising a snowball battle, rolling in the snow... This is definitely a very unique experience!
Imagine that, in addition to being able to do all these activities in the snow as a family, you can also combine it with practicing a winter sports: skiing, wouldn't that be wonderful? We want to encourage you to take your kids skiing and we've prepared a family ski guide to Pal-Arinsal, available on our website.
