Slopes and sectors

The Ordino Arcalis ski resort (or commonly known as Ordino Arcalis) is located in the Ordino Valley, and together with Pal Arinsal, in Andorra. The resort's northeast orientation helps to maintain a good snow quality throughout the winter and allows good skiing even at the end of it. Another reason for the conservation of the snow along its 30 kilometres of ski runs is located at a very high altitude, between 1,940m and 2,625m of altitude. Yes, usually it is a little colder than the rest of the Andorran resorts like Pal Arinsal or the ski resorts that are near, like Grandvalira.

Ordino Arcalís is environment-friendly, not only for the way in which it is integrated into the Pyrenees mountains, but by the fact that it has accommodations around the ski tracks. This may be a minor inconvenience for skiers that are used to stay near the slopes, but also part of its charm. You can easily find accommodation in nearby towns like El Serrat, just 5 kilometres away or Ordino, located 13 kilometres from the resort and where most of hotels are concentrated in the region.
