Arinsal is a very pleasant ski resort located in the Pyrenees mountains of Andorra that is the ideal choice for families, intermediate skiers and novices. It is part of the Vallnord ski area and together with Arcalis gives you access, with one ski pass, to over ninety marked ski runs. The pistes are easily reached via the cable car, the drag lifts, the chairs and the gondolas. The season lasts from the third week in December to the end of March. Snow cover is generally good but should it be necessary, there are numerous cannons to augment the snow. Arinsal is popular in the summer when skiers and boarders are replaced by climbers, walkers and cyclists.
There are English speaking ski schools in Arinsal where you can find good tuition that will soon have novices moving from the nursery slopes to green and perhaps the easier red runs. In this child friendly resort you'll find group lessons from the age of six. There are also baby clubs from one to four and snow gardens for four to eight year olds. Boarding lessons are from the age of ten. If you want places for young children, it is best to book early as they are limited.
Low cost Arinsal holidays have wide popularity with both skiers and boarders. Boarders have a snow park with a mega half pipe and boarder-cross with jumps. Skiers find more opportunities for beginners and intermediates with thirty-five green runs and twenty seven red. Nevertheless, the off-piste skiing and one or two mogul runs pose a welcome challenge for the experienced skier.
