Resort Information

Best for:

Vallnord is probably the Andorran ski resort most familiar to British skiers and snowboarders. On your school ski trip to Vallnord, one ski pass will give you access to the two ski areas of Arinsal and Pal. Arinsal and Pal are linked by cable car, making it very easy to travel between the two resorts. As Arinsal is very popular with British skiers and snowboarders, the local ski school is staffed by a large number of friendly instructors with impeccable English – great news for British school ski groups! 

Skiing Information

Arinsal and Pal are ideal for beginners, as they both boast excellent nursery slopes set relatively high up the mountain. They enjoy good snow conditions for the entire season. And there are plenty of good blue and green runs for learners to progress on to. That being said, intermediate skiers and snowboarders will also find plenty to do in Vallnord. With 63km of marked runs, there's plenty of room for progression on the slopes, so all of your students will be able to improve at their own pace. The ski area is set in a huge snowy bowl, with loads of wide, confidence-boosting runs, all of which lead back to the main station, providing easy access to both the ski school meeting point and the restaurant where students eat their lunch overlooking the pistes.

For me, the most exciting part of my job is meeting the students and hearing all about their fun experiences on the slopes! I believe that school travel is wonderful for the development of young people. – Tracy West Ski Specialist

Don't take our word for it …

A hidden little gem of a resort. A very high standard of accommodation and ski tuition with fun instructors who speak good English. Snow is always plentiful and evening activities available if required. Night skiing is a real highlight. Looking forward to next year already. — Woking High School
